So the governor of Michigan is going to appoint an emergency manager for Detroit. Well, that’s only a couple decades too later.
So what’s the realistic option to turn around Detroit, though? How desperate would a business have to be to move there given the better option of absolutely every other place in America? We probably should just do the sensible thing and abandon it, build a fence around the area, and put up signs telling people to stay out. Because really he best Detroit can hope to be now is a warning to others.
“But, grandpa, what lies beyond that fence?”
“A place we no longer speak of. A city destroyed.”
“Destroyed by what? A nuclear bomb?”
“Worse: liberalism. The left tried to manage a whole city, and now the place is uninhabitable for a thousand years.”
“But that won’t happen to our town, can it?”
“I hope not, Timmy. I hope not.”
