If we let Detroit go bankrupt: then what? What happens? Crime is rampant and only going to get worse. Does the city become a war zone? Detroit is unsustainable so what do we do?
Progressives, of whom I am one, have said that if the money spent in the
war had been channeled to Detroit to build an
industry base, then
would be a model city today. But the
problem is that if the government starts taking over the control of all major
cities in financial trouble, we become something other than a democracy;
something similar to the post Russian revolution. Detroit
And, do we want this cabal running our cities?
I'm just asking.
