“One local church pastor recently said that the only way to save Highland Park is to pave the way for subsistence farming.”
You Americans are so lucky to have this oppertunity. That pastor hit the nail on the head. Dirt cheap land, services less than 10 mins bicycling away. And unlike other countries you are allowed to protect yourselves with guns. If i was a yank Detroit would be golden land of oppertunity and adventure you wouldn’t be able to keep me away from.
(I’m not being sarcastic, Billions around the world would give their kidneys for a chance like this)

My hometown of Flint, Michigan isn't much better. Flint, like Detroit, used to be an automotive town, but has suffered from the de-industrialization of America.

I owe Unions my life? You mean these Unions?
Check your facts and go get your Brain Washed head checked...
That's right. You'd be working right now, on a Sunday, if not for Unions.
The fact is Detroit fell because of unregulated industry. It had nothing to do with Unions.
You conveniently ignore the numerous massive, successfull automotive industries around the world. The ones that replaced Detroit. You know the ones, they're thriving, despite heavy unionisation.
Detroit fell because of greedy capitalists who the government left unchecked. Because of lack of regulation.
