"victim blaming" is a straw-man term designed to make those so accused look foolish. Everyone understands that there are many links in the causal chain of an undesirable event. No one who points at a few ("X took nude selfie") excludes the existence of the other ("Y stole it") necessary links.

Quantify, specify.

You like to eat don't you?"

Yes, but you're short on quantity & specificity on how it's to "society's benefit" to have (how many?) people live in rural areas.

Plus you will notice food is to some extent market-based, so people are paying for that "benefit" directly already. (Let's ignore stuff like food stamps or farmer subsidies, which don't exactly help quantify the benefits, only the costs.)

Reference the NULL within NULL, it is the gateway to all wizardry.
