    Which City is Next?

    Detroit has been ravaged with crime and corruption for decades. In a sense, it has received its comeuppance. So which city do you think will be next?

    Vatican City. I mean, c'mon, with all those little boys raped by the Church authority figures and their whole 'feed the poor' liberal agenda - it's GOT TO be Vatican City, right?

    On a more global scale, perhaps. Thank you for showing deeper insight, ForcedAppeal.

    Gotta be Baltimore. My GPS took me through Baltimore on my way from DC to NYC because I hit 'avoid toll roads'. I have never seen a more poor, run-down, third world city in the western world. That city is already broken, declaring it bankrupt will just be a matter of semantics.

    Re: Which City is Next?

    It's creepy how supposedly patriotic people seem to revel in the country's struggles. Especially with the undercurrent of "See? I told you it was wrong to be anything besides a white, middle class, heterosexual, rural Christian, male, and this is what you get for thinking you're not inferior." It also involves selectively ignoring the many many problems experienced by such people and how the dreaded city people (70-80% of Americans) get along just fine.

    So yeah, smug sadistic bigotry doesn't help anyone, and it runs really contrary to the stated ideals of the people doing it.

    My guess is Stockton. According to Forbes, The city is broke and it's already filed for bankruptcy. They've cut way back on their policing, as well, so nobody's safe there.

    Chicago and to a lesser degree Cleveland are what they are because of their geographic importance for inland shipping. That is becoming increasingly irrelevant as manufacturing dies out, and more goods can be moved by train and tractor-trailers economically. Cleveland is a little more proactive in investing in a post-industrialized economy while Chicago is not so much. I expect the new deep water ports will make Chicago more by-passable as a route to the midwest, in the same way that the opening of the Erie Canal moved the banking center of the US from Philadelphia to New York. I doubt Chicago will fail in the next 20 years but definitely in the next 50.
