I see some similarities in these photos. Hiroshima 1945 is where dictatorships and religious extremism get you. Hiroshima Modern times is what you get when you have capitalistic ideals running the show.

Now if you flip the last paragraph and insert Detroit in place of Hiroshima then you get the idea. Liberal ideas have run the show there in Detroit for far too long.

The people of Hiroshima had already faced total destruction, so they were smart enough not to vote for a socialist. Detroit’s people had never encountered the consequences of bad decisions, so they spent decades pushing for the most “liberal” government their neighbors could afford, with the crowning achievement last November. Karma.

A number of those Detroit Today pics are from the Packard Plant that closed in 1956.

Detroit's been on the skids for 30 years.

If nothing else, the Japanese are a focused people.

I get your point though.

We beat the foreign enemies, but had no way of dealing with the domestic enemies. We still don’t. Witness the destruction they are causing.

Very good post, nonetheless. Thanks.

Why liberals won in Detroit. Pubbies should be using pictures of this everywhere to demonstrate what happens when liberal (marxist) policies are ascendant for protracted periods of time.

Moral of the story :

Liberals can nuke cities with more devastating effect than nuclear bombs. All it takes is to vote for them.

I know one thing that went dreadfully wrong. In the 1950s a man named Edwards Demming presented a management concept to American industry (INCLUDING the auto industry in Detroit) called Organizational Behavior. The U.S. auto industry, and IBM (among others) turned their noses at him and sent him away.

So he went to Japan, which was RIPE for his concepts. They were willing to hear him and adopt his new concepts as they were in the midst of rebuilding and recovering from world war two. You probably remember when the "funny looking" little Japanese cars starting appearing on American roads in the early 1970s...and how the U.S. auto industry turned their noses at them and told us how they were a passing fad. But by the late 1980s the Japanese had become a serious threat to the U.S. auto industry.

Edwards Demming is probably the single most responsible person for the success of the Japanese automotive and technology industries.

In truth, organizational behavior has been adopted throughout a goodly portion of American business and industry today. But Demming was able to reach Japan after world war two with it first.

The photos are a direct reflection of the results of Japan adopting and applying innovation and change correctly (with help from Mr. Demming) and the U.S. staying with industry killers such as the UAW.

Detroit: The Triumph of Progressive Public Policy

http://www.mackinac.org/article.aspx?ID=10743

Excerpt:

Imagine a city where all the major economic planks of the statist or “progressive” platform have been enacted:

* A “living wage” ordinance, far above the federal minimum wage, for all public employees and private contractors.
* A school system that spends significantly more per pupil than the national average.
* A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members.
* A powerful government employee union that does the same for its members.
* A tax system that aggressively redistributes income from businesses and the wealthy to the poor and to government bureaucracies.

Would this be a shining city on a hill, exciting the admiration of all? We don’t have to guess, because there is such a city right here in our state: Detroit

Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not unusually radioactive.
