Tales From Detroit: Half of Detroit’s Streetlights May Go Out As City Shrinks


In my review of Paul Kersey’s Escape From Detroit, I revived John C. Calhoun’s argument that black people lack the capacity to maintain civilization as the most parsimonious explanation of the decline of “The Paris of the West.”

In the 39th year of black ascendancy, Detroit continues to suffer from what has yet to be identified as “the legacy of freedom.” This story is another mile marker on the road to total collapse:

“Detroit, whose 139 square miles contain 60 percent fewer residents than in 1950, will try to nudge them into a smaller living space by eliminating almost half its streetlights.

As it is, 40 percent of the 88,000 streetlights are broken and the city, whose finances are to be overseen by an appointed board, can’t afford to fix them. Mayor Dave Bing’s plan would create an authority to borrow $160 million to upgrade and reduce the number of streetlights to 46,000. Maintenance would be contracted out, saving the city $10 million a year.”

Note: Now that some loose ends are tied up from March and April, I will be attacking the Caribbean Project with renewed vigor. In particular, we are going to explore post-independence Jamaica which is one of the most violent countries in the world. Kingston is the Detroit of the West Indies.

  1. To mess with Reagan and the Pilgrim.

    Detroit is a grimy city in a landfill pit.

    btw see Gawker comments on the race war article. Bwhahahahaha!

  2. Yeah, the guy is all wrong on all kinds of things but he definitely knows what he is talking about, right or wrong.

  3. Fuck. He’s the personification of a douche bag Yankee. Sorry for the link. Don’t waste your time. I thought he was going to be smarter than that.

  4. “Chris Hedges – Brace Yourself! The American Empire Is Over & The Descent Is Going To Be Horrifying”

    Pat Buchanan has already written about half a dozen books about the decline of the American Empire and has a roughly 1000% better personality.

  5. Yockey (who died in 1960) had the essence of the American Empire already figured out in 1949:

    The instruments of this assault and the weapons of propaganda, press, radio, cinema, stage, education. These weapons are controlled at this moment in Europe almost entirely by the forces of Culture-disease and social degeneration.

    The “chief fount” is Hollywood, which “spews forth an endless series of perverted films to debase and degenerate the youth of Europe” after having successfully destroyed the youth of America.

    The message of Hollywood is the total, significance of the isolated individual, stateless and rootless, outside of society and family, whose life is the pursuit of money and erotic pleasure. It is not the normal and healthy love of man and wife bound together by many children that Hollywood preaches, but a diseased erotic-for-its-own sake, the sexual love of two grains of human sand, superficial and impermanent. Before this highest of all Hollywood’s values everything else must stand aside: marriage, honor, duty, patriotism, sternness dedication to self to a higher aim. This ghastly distortion of sexual life has created the erotomaia that obsesses millions of victims in America, and which has now been brought to the Mother-soil of Europe by the American invasion.

    Hollywood-feminism has created a woman who is no longer a woman but cannot be a man, and a man who is devirilized into an indeterminate thing. The name given to this process is “the setting from” of woman and it is done in the name of “happiness,” the magic word of the liberal-communist-democratic doctrine.

  6. Landshark He presents some great ideas, but he a liberal who won’t admit he is.

    He just said NYT presents items that come from verifiable fact, and that FOX does not – I am at 56:38.
