This reads like a science-fiction apocalyptic future novel. The only catch is that it is real.
Detroit To Allocate Services to Neighborhoods That Might Survive
Twenty-five or thirty years ago we were looking at major metropolitan centers and seeing a process that was variously labeled renaissance, gentrification, reconstruction or recovery. Here we see the end game of a politically corrupt, redistributionist, left-wing government's half century of mismanagement.
The language of the decree is frightening by itself. The comments about selective choices of who receives what service. The arbitrary nature of categorization of entire segments of the city. The disclaimer that we won't force anyone to relocate...and the implication that the missing word in that sentence is "yet".
Now, with a good hard and objective look at Detroit how could a sane and rational voter voluntarily support the political party and ideology that got a major industrial center with a core called the Renaissance Center to this sad state?
This is the direction of the nation right now.
