detroit = america's future?

Below is one of the best videos I've ever seen explaining what happened to Detroit, Michigan. Watch it first, then I'll tell you what I think about it.

There are two huge glaring omissions from the video that largely contributed to Detroit's downfall.

First is the 1967 riot. This is not mentioned once, and it should have been. There were many American cities that had riots in the late 1960s. Some never recovered from them, Detroit obviously included.

Second is the fact Detroit was overly dependent on a single industry, that being automobile manufacturing. It has been proven time and time again that regions which only have a single industry to sustain themselves are doomed to fail.

Detroit is a dystopia, except it's real.

Many believe the entire country is going to end up like the D.

Do I believe that?


The video above is an example of when everything goes wrong. And I mean everything. But it is not representative of the USA as a whole nor what it will become.

What everybody fails to mention when talking about Detroit is that the city's condition is a result of urban decay. This type of decay is a slow process that takes decades to be in full effect. In other words, it absolutely does not happen overnight.

This begs the question of why has the rebuilding process of Detroit been so slow or in many instances nonexistent?

Maybe the following two videos will answer that question. This is a slightly different slant compared to the video above. Watch and learn.

I think that pretty much says it all.
