The answer is also "yes" for a pueblo (actually a "barrio suburbano" located about ten kilometers from Punta Alta).After 3 months here and spending some time in my wife's town, I think the answer is "no" for Buenos Aires, "maybe" for a secondary city like Rosario, and "yes" for a pueblo.
And all those that commit violence against woman here? I guess they didn't have that extended family. I bet there were more femicidios here than victims of mass shootings in the US last year. Do you know how many femicidios there have already been here this year, which is only a little over a month old? I grew up in the States with that extended family and my nephews and nieces still have it, as do the children of friends. The problem with generalizing is that it misses so much.I don't know much about cost of living, but I do know you can't put a price on the benefits of growing up within an extended loving family. Having cousins, uncles, aunts, second cousins, in-law nieces, etc., all providing a wonderful safety net for yourself and your family.
Life in the States may be cheaper, safer, and more "convenient", but there can be a terrible price to pay in terms of isolation and loneliness. I believe that is often behind the frequent US mass killing sprees, something unknown in Argentina. Troubled youngsters alienated from their parents generally have an aunt, uncle or older cousin willing to lend a friendly ear, and provide a shoulder to cry on. Argentinian extended families provide an invaluable safety net.
And you would lose that bet.I bet there were more femicidios here than victims of mass shootings in the US last year.
Last year when I looked at the murder rate per capita here and in the US for 2017, the US had a lower overall rate.And you would lose that bet.
Number of Femicidos in Argentina in 2018- 216
Number of mass shooting victims in USA in 2018- 387
Number of Femicidos in USA in 2018 - between 1000 and 1800.
It is certainly true that femicidos are disproportionately high in Argentina.
And that they are a terrible thing.
But more of them happen in the USA, and in addition to that, we have mass shootings, random shootings, accidental shootings, drunken shootings, gang shootings, and more, in the USA.
