24 signs US is becomming just like Detroit
For years, people have been laughing at the horrific economic decline of Detroit. Well, guess what? The same thing that happened to Detroit is now happening to dozens of other communities across the United States. From coast to coast there are formerly great manufacturing cities that have turned into rotting, post-industrial war zones. In particular, in America’s “rust belt” you can drive through town after town after town that resemble little more than post-apocalyptic wastelands. In many U.S. cities, the “real” rate of unemployment is over 30 percent. There are some communities that will start depressing you almost the moment you drive into them. It is almost as if all of the hope has been sucked right out of those communities.

The following are 24 signs that all of America is becoming a rotting, post-industrial, post-apocalyptic wasteland just like Detroit........

Holy Fuck.
It's worse than I though.

What can we do to correct this situation, or is it too late?

Re: 24 signs US is becomming just like Detroit
the good news is that from desolation comes new life.

there are seeds sprouting in Detroit this year. i have lived in the area for years and am finally seeing small changes for the good. i hope this will snowball.

the old buildings are being torn down, urban farms are starting to pop up. there is a surge of new small business downtown.

african americans are moving out and they are being replaced by arabs and latinos with a strong commitment to cleaning up and rebuilding. large stretches of certain streets look better than they did years ago.

new housing is also going up in the university and hospital regions.

things are slowly looking up.

Once the fan has been hit by the shit and the whole house of cards comes tumbling down, then we can begin to rebuild and create a newer and better America. Hopefully one with a weak central government and no central bank.

Am I too optimistic?

There are too many people. I live in the suburbs and we've started small, successful communities. Big cities need to be torn-down and rebuilt.

Obviously, you have never tried leaving the country...

Do you honestly think other countries welcome you with open arms and a work visa?
