The death of a once great city
[link to harpers.org (secure)]

I just read this and noticed the same thing all along the coast of california. I also see the same things happening here from seattle to everett. Once thriving yet seedy communities transformed into starbucks and high end stores selling overpriced shit we dont need.

It of course, has an eat the rich undertome but is well written and relatable to any formerly great city.

(way less the 50%)

New York has been my home for more than forty years, from the year after the city’s supposed nadir in 1975, when it nearly went bankrupt. I have seen all the periods of boom and bust since, almost all of them related to the “paper economy” of finance and real estate speculation that took over the city long before it did the rest of the nation. But I have never seen what is going on now: the systematic, wholesale transformation of New York into a reserve of the obscenely wealthy and the barely here—a place increasingly devoid of the idiosyncrasy, the complexity, the opportunity, and the roiling excitement that make a city great.

Babylon will fall also, that mysterious city that encompasses all on this world.

We are its inhabitants, that delights in her merchandise of good and evil. Trading with her, and buying and selling her goods in the city.

Within we receive her plagues, every man, rich, poor, free and bond.


A city of iniquity, golden cup of abominations which we drink from and get drunk on, her wine of fornication of the flesh, which leaves our spirit drunken and made desolate. Come out of her, forsake her ways, depart from her and reward her as she has rewarded up. Leave her bare and desolate.

Re: The death of a once great city
The irony is (as depicted in the currency), the NWO wants to destroy NYC with a huge tidal wave, which they could do since the only gap in the offshore tsunami buoys is off the coast of NYC.
All characters and events in this forum --even those based on real people-- are entirely fictional. All celebrity comments are impersonated...poorly. The above post contains coarse language and due to the content it should not be viewed by anyone.

Same with Alexandria was America today, same with Sodom and Gomorrah, Babylon and Atlantis.

This is why diversity will never stand.
