Response to badtoworse (Reply #10)

11. Politicians are beholden to their campaign donors. If the donors don't like their policies, they

 

don't fund them, or actively fund the opposition. Additionally, the rich are the most likely to vote, and the likelihood of voting diminishes all the way down the economic ladder. Additionally, the rich are the most likely to be civicly & politically involved.

So it's nonsense to pretend that the politicians had a free hand in detroit.

In case you haven't been keeping up, there's a very obvious gentrification going on in Detroit. The property is not 'worthless' at all.

Detroit was deliberately taken down.
