When I was a kid growing up in Michigan, Detroit was listed as the 4th largest city in the US.
"Escape From Detroit"
Gosh, it is almost surreal. "Art imitates Life" or "Life imitates Art", I can never remember which is true...
Bless them. And bunnies are mythical creatures.
“Turn out the lights...the party’s over.”
Detroit is now #18 on the list just behind Charlotte, NC according to this Wiki.
I’d rather walk in a Detroit Blackout than many areas of Chicago during the day.
Chicago is a regular old killing zone and wait till the federal dollars are cut off.
You have to identify those neighborhoods where you want to concentrate your population, said Chris Brown, Detroits chief operating officer. Were not going to light distressed areas like we light other areas.
“Bing in 2010 began an independent project called Detroit Works to sort ideas on how to reconfigure the city for residences, businesses, green space and even agriculture, a plan due in August.”
Detroit Works project is absolutely a sustainable development initiative.
Thanks for the link, but that’s NOT the article that I had read, and need to find. Definitely a keeper, but not the article I am looking for.
The article I am looking for specifically outlined the lighting cutbacks as a means to herd communities of residences into specified urban areas to the liking of master planners, opposed to the necessity to do so generated by cost to a bankrupt city. It wasn’t science fiction either. It was a real plan by real Leftists of the Leftist wannabe ruling class using the Detroit plan as the basis of their own National plan.
Good point to ping TEXOKIE. I had forgotten the necessity to do so. It does fall into the Agenda 21 category of societal manipulation.

Yes, but the problem cities are exclusively run by liberals.
Show me a city having Detroit/LA/Chicago/Atlanta/New York city problems that has been run for decades by conservatives.
There are none.
The unique force you are talking about is liberalism, allowed to run these places for decades. These urban wastelands are the result of decades of local liberal policies.
I know what you are hinting at, but I am telling you that liberal polices are responsible for that. Decades and decades of such policies. Ultimately it’s liberal policies. And liberals being in power to push more and more of them and keep funding them at the expense of the makers.
Ha!! Yeah, that is the one I was thinking of!
From the political orientation of their "leaders" and "representatives," the denizens of the inner cities seem to be very worried about global warming, the disappearance of endangered species, and our shrinking virgin wilderness areas.
