Is it instinctual sentiment for "natural habitat" that people don't move to more livable places?


When I hear about regular tornadoes, earthquakes, droughts, floods, mud slides, or harsh winters in certain areas of a country (any country), I can't help wondering what's keeping the people there. Some lose their houses in a disaster, and then rebuild it at the same place---until the next time when the same happens. I understand that animals feel attached to their natural habitat, but people operate beyond their instincts, they have something like a choice. So, what, other than that instinct is keeping an Eskimo (Inuit) or a desert dude stuck in their unfriendly environments?

    Greg--Philosophy of "Whatever is--is" doesn't give any incentive for a consciously produced change. It's about the difference between living life and letting life happen to us---while just coping.
