    Uh, no. This is exactly what is needed and the trajectory of civilization. At some point, decline and collapse will happen. And at some point, we'll finally recognize that it needs to happen.

    That this is happening in Detroit is interesting. The "city of industry" is slowly decaying.

    It's definitely not all bad as the author assumes.
