The American City is Dying
"The social reformers who used to be the band aids on the cityís growth have become its entire reason for being. Social welfare is the only thing that cities do anymore. Its broken school systems are forever trying to dig their students out of a hole while plunging their economy deeper into it. The alliance between community activists and public sector unions has created a runaway monster that no one from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Rahm Emanuel has been able to stop.

Politicians have usually found it easier to pay off the representatives of human dysfunction and their caretakers than put up a fight. With the coming of the recession even liberal politicians have discovered that they may need to fight, but itís too late.

Itís easier for cities like New York City and Chicago to shake down their remaining financial industries than to try and win the bloody fight against the unions and their affiliated parasites. Unlike unions, corporations are willing to pay out, but they will also move on. Financial industries are now less tied to cities than ever before. The city is a matter of image and convenience, and a collapsing city is good for neither.

Itís no wonder that the cities voted for Obama and that their vote carried him over the top. Unlike the rest of the country, there is no answer to the problems of the cities except more government money. Their tottering educational systems depend on large infusions of federal cash. So does the rest of it.

When New York City hit the wall in 1975, it needed federal help. But most of the major cities are going to hit the wall sooner or later. Whether or not there will be enough federal money by then to bail them out is an open question, but for the moment federal money can delay the moment of collision. And the worst news is that the federal government is the city on a macroscopic scale run by a representative of the worst in urban politics.

The Obama administration has won a triumphant victory in imposing the irrational social and economic values of the city on the rest of the country. But while the liberal tycoons and college students who made it happen are celebrating, itís a coup with no future. All that they have done is put the country on the same dead end track as the city."The social reformers who used to be the band aids on the cityís growth have become its entire reason for being.

thank you. what the left, academia, and the media have succeeded in doing to our countries is making people feel entitled to what other people have earned and also very, very dependent on government. when you rob peter to pay paul you can always count on paul's support at the ballot box.

we are so outnumbered now that our politicians ignore us and have no intention of addressing the situtaion on our behalf. we are truly a people who are taxed and have no representation. i suspect it is the same for you?

Right. Come take a look at San Francisco. Cranes and construction every where. Bidding wars for apartments and condos, bidding wars for high tech employees. Unemployment rate a little over 6%, 0% for anyone with any sort of marketable skill.

Problem for San Francisco isn't lack of money. Its too much money, making it difficult to afford even with a high paying easily obtainable job.

With California's high taxes (sales, income, property, corporate etc.) you'd think the state would be economically healthy...instead it's the state in the worst debt nationwide

More than 700 billion in debt and that number goes up ~10% a year

This is a clear example of how government in general (liberalism specifically) can't be trusted to run anything more important than painting stripes on the streets

Re: The American City is Dying
Ever since I stumbled on to an article about Marx being a Satanist, it's all finally made sense and EVERYTHING that has happened since that evil psycho attended his first Satanic ceremony and was possessed by Satan himself, now is fully understood.

Read some of this Satanic verses, his poems. Destroying civilization, destroying all humans was his dream, his life's goal. His idiot followers are being used to finish that goal.

NO surprise at all that the descendants of Marx, the Leftists, the democrats today, destroy everything they touch. They are Satan's instruments. They have murdered MILLIONS and enslaved MILLIONS around the world. They have turned MILLIONS away from God by forcing atheism upon them.

And yes, Marx was of Jewish heritage, was mentored by a rabbi named Hess, and was in league with masons and Satanists in the circle with Albert Pike. It's no surprise that so many hardcore leftists are Jewish.

Any non-Marxist Jews need to wake the hell up and turn back to God Almighty, and cut themselves off from the Satanists/Marxists in their group. Repent while there's still time...

Re: The American City is Dying
The original ECONOMIC reasons for a "City", ala a COMPACT grouping of people living and WORKING in VERY CLOSE proximity to each other has died.

The reason for URBAN areas to exist still are valid however and they will continue to not only exist, but to grow in the years ahead.

Western cities were based upon 3 economic pillars.

*Retail tradesmen who established stores etc. to sell products to the populous, particularly products that didn't need to be bought daily or weekly (ie: clothing, jewlry, etc. versus food). Originally these businesses were at the street level for easy customer access.

*Those who provided the specialized services that larger concentrations of people required, or those who MANAGED the larger concentrations of people. (ie: attorneys, business managers, accountants, etc.) These types of businesses needed to be CLOSE to other like businesses so meetings could take place and documents could readily be exchanged. Unlike retailers hese types of business did not need immediate street access and were generally located ABOVE the retail merchants.

*Finally manufaturing, from small specialized to larger more organized businesses. These were generally located out of immediate core of the city, more on the periphery.

Since people all WALKED to work people NEEDED to live in close proximity to where they worked ... ie: people thus congregated to live in the cities to be near where they worked.

VOILA FIRST ... Manufacturing LEFT the core of the cities due to EASIER transportation after the advent of larger trucks allowed them to and the ability to have more efficient plant operations AWAY from the core of the cities (ie: Single floor manufacturing operations versus the old multi floor type) AND the fact that there workers were no longer walking to work but were now able to travel via private vehicles (over a longer distance)

SECOND ... Retailing moved out with the people (who were now living further out because private vehicles allowed them to)

FINALLY ... with modern telecommunications (just since the late 1960's), accellerating with the advent of first the FAX machine, then the internet, e-mail and the widespread adoption of utilizing PDF for documents, the large office operations needed to support the rest of business (ie: law firms, accounting firms, non customer office operations of large businesses such as banks, insurance companies, or corporate headquarters) offices could now be located ANYWHERE. Not just out of the core city, but actually in even a remote location totally away from a city, the only requirment being a population to provide workers, and access to water/sewer/roads/modern telecommunications.

Actual Medium Size Cities, in the US at least, have now mostly outlived their economic usefullness except for the largest of the large, and are economic dinosaurs increasingly filled with non-working and unproductive leaches (though the greater urban area around them may be doing just fine). Retail no longer exists in them. Manufacturing moved out long ago. Offices are quickly vacating them for the ring suburbs (choice of the largest corporation in our state when it built it's new headquarter) or even moving out into the country many miles from the city itself (what is happening here).

Re: The American City is Dying
in case no one has noticed section 8 housing is springing up all around even in the 'burbs. the left needs to do this as they no longer have the money in the big cities to pay for all of non-producers who are left living there.

white flight has become more middle class flight as even most working class blacks want to move their families to a better life out of the decaying city.
