What our Marxist friends call “internal contradictions” are bringing down Chicago, as they have already bankrupted Detroit. Writing at Powerline, Paul Mirengoff explores “The Larger Meaning of Rahm Emanuel’s Woes.”
Reading this you’ll quickly realize you are reading Toronto’s and by extension Ontario’s future as the Liberal government is just the northern version of the Democratic party kleptocracy. Pay particular attention to the piece by Walter Russell Mead , and then substitute Toronto for Chicago.
Incidentally the pic above while of Chicago’s South side is not current. I stumbled upon it as I was searching for a “Chicago image” to accompany this post. I found its history so interesting I thought I should include it and link to some info on the photographer Richard Nickel.
“…Nickel’s thousands of pictures brilliantly captured a city that was slipping away before his eyes. He died in 1972 when a section of the building he was shooting, Adler & Sullivan’s Chicago Stock Exchange, collapsed and buried him. (It was being demolished at the time; that’s why he was photographing it.) His body wasn’t found for 28 days. An excellent introduction to his work is Richard Nickel’s Chicago by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams (2006). You should read it. He’s a tough act to follow.”
