New Nihilism in Chicago
As my mother would say America is going to hell in a hand basket. Be astounded reading this report about the breakdown of civil society in Chicago. Be alarmed reading this Chicago Cops Blog. Thenew nihilism has given the roaming gangs the great freedom of having nothing left to lose. Being arrested and jailed has become asymmetric warfare against the taxpayer. Why can’t leaders in North America look at northern Europe and see the solutions. In the main train station is Vienna, there is a large table filled with newspapers and magazines. There sits a coffee can full of small bills and change. People take a book and make their own change, most of the time this table is unattended. There is no such thing as a safe gated community; you cannot buy security if your city is insecure. This problem can be addressed rationally, or the rich can buy helicopters and fly to the office from a hundred miles away. My guess is they will buy helicopters instead of schools that perform, sensible drug laws, and industry that is as much about jobs as it is about profit.
