The collapse of America’s cities into Third World conditions

It’s infuriating to be living in the leading nation in the First World, the largest or second-largest economy in the world (depending on who’s measuring, and how), and the most powerful nation in the world, and yet see Third World levels of filth, infrastructural breakdown and dysfunctional government invade many of our cities.

The headlines over the past few years tell a horrifying story to anyone who values the achievements of civilization. I won’t bother linking to actual reports here; there are so many that simple Internet searches will find an abundance of them. Consider these areas of concern:

    We are close to Philly and I keep a generator on the porch because I need it often. Last Thursday we had a small storm pass through and many in the area did not get power restored until Sunday. We happened to be totally unaffected this time so I was happy; Thats not normally the case!

    It’s happening in many of the large cities in the U.S. A large part of the problem is allocation of resources, mainly tax funds. The government collects the money, but the people have no say in just how the money is spent. It’s true that we’re overtaxed, but we pay up anyway (mainly because the money is taken before we get our hands on it), but having knuckled under to the taxation enforcement police, we have no say what-so-ever in how the funds are spent.

    The State of Colorado tried an experiment back in the 1970s. The government allowed the citizens to allocate about half of their tax funds to a particular category. I think that idea lasted about one year.

    The blue cities did not get that way by accident or even by negligence: it’s by design. The Democrats want illiterate, dependent peasants as constituents. Men who take pride in where they live, who take responsibility for themselves and their families, cannot be easily controlled.

Play nice.
