T or F: Detroit is the utopian progressive wonderland, the ultimate goal and triumph of progressives?

A city government full of corrupt bribe takers who bankrupt the city by pocketing money they were supposed to put into the city pension fund.

The people live in poverty, in high crime combat zone conditions, totally dependent on government handouts for their next meal.

Progressives hope to turn every city into the next Detroit...

False........ or true?

    Detroit is the place where we made cars in vast quantities until the Japanese showed up with better-built cars and Detroit didn't meet the challenge. Who decided not to build better cars because "We're America and people will always buy our cars?" Labor or management?

    Detroit has become a stink hole since then but "management" had the money to escape. They moved elsewhere, like Tennessee, where they build cars for America's competition.
