Apocalypse Now – A view of Detroit’s deserted neighborhoods gives us tangible evidence of the future for any nation which has abandoned what I’ve come to believe is among the best of Thoreau’s advice:
Be not simply good; be good for something.
Naturally, this didn’t happen all at once. The current financial crisis, this generation’s “Great Depression” was merely the last straw for a city that was built to make things. Forty years of destructive monetary policy and other leftist lunacy (the UAW and Detroit political culture both come to mind) had already cast the seeds of this city’s eventual death.
For the rest of us, we might wonder what it is that we still make. Are we good for something? – HT
