Doing the same thing as in the great Depression

In the 1930s they were plowing under crops while people were starving.

Treating symptoms

Treating symptoms again/still?

The CAUSE of the cities dying is the continuous devaluing of the money and the destruction of individuals' right to produce.

The first is caused by the Federal Reserve and those that support same.

The second is caused by our own government and its bogus philosophy of LACK.

Bulldozed in order to survive?

Like Tel Aviv ain't down with such trouble?

I don't get what's telegraph's point, In Israel Disengagement Plan (the "Gaza Pull-Out plan") had MAD Bulldozed.

So, later, I guess they got them apartments in Tel Aviv and the gov thought it's cool.

True enough..but,

some of these places really are s**t holes. Flint, Dayton, and plenty of mid western towns are just awful. Abandoned houses, (now crack houses), vermin, filth....yeah, bulldoze them but, don't forget to get DC on the list...

How many times will it take

for people to wake up to this new-speak?

Let's see:
"Bulldozed to survive"?
"Invaded and occupied to be liberated"?
"Oppressed for security"?
"illegally searched for your own safety"?"
"Forced to be vaccinated for the good of society"?
"It's for the children"?
Etc.

And on and on... ad infinitum..

What kind of morons would believe this kind of thing?

Bless you BigT, Bless you!

Think for yourself, question authority

Upon reading your comment,

Orwell's "1984" came immediately to mind. Isn't it nice that Queen Elizabeth smilingly gifted Vincente Fox with a copy of this book during or shortly after the last G20 meeting ....and Mexico was the first country to take advantage of the IMF's SDR's. Yup, it all fits perfectly, doesn't it?

Yikes. I missed that.

..Queen Elizabeth giving Vicente Fox a copy of "1984"

~cringe~

ooh.

that's just so creepy.

I Could See Another Possibility......

Re-wilding is an oxymorom...

as is "destruction for survival". It makes sense that towns and cities across this nation re-asses the unfounded sprawl that has weighted down true urban renewal and left so many places in America physical realities of the "doughnut city" syndrome. I do not hold against urban areas their desire to "cut out the fat", unfortunately it will always be at the loss that the labor and material destroyed represents. Those critical questions are location specific and should be left to the towns and cities alone as much as possible. Just like any individual who looks to "get in shape", what exercise is incorporated and what habits jettisoned are ultimately the sole physical and moral responsibility of that individual.
However, it is clear that this "destruction for survival" plays cleanly into the UN's Agenda 21sustainability dogma. As towns and cities across this nation adopt these policies (assuming they adopt these policies) the empty houses, offices and areas of commerce that are destroyed leave those who initially abandoned them with fewer places to return, and those who might newly move into that area with less choice of where to buy existing. It reminds me of the scene from many movies where the hero leaves the land of loss with the old home stead falling to flames he deliberately set.
Again, I do not see this attrition as evil. It is a natural outcome of economic depression. One may argue to the side whether this economic depression is natural or "controlled", but nonetheless it is here. Reality proscribes that we deal with it and this is the tipping point. We must decide if this trimming down leads to better urban planning techniques reliant less on developer driven profits and more on fundamental and timeless proven urban development; will we abandon the "pop-up town" for the proper and organic growth of desired urban centers, or will we allow this destruction to simply shove many into shoddily built apartments and remaining sprawls in other less fortunate areas, effectively setting the stage for more destruction and further contraction.
Knowing the plan of Agenda 21, it is our choice to follow it or not. We can "get in shape" both physically and economically, or we can allow that trimming down to become a disease in itself and die a type of starvation that Agenda 21 would not flinch to see occur.
I began by asserting the notion of "re-wilding" is absurd. I think it is if you consider the main point of attack promoted in Agenda 21; namely that there is a schism, or separation between man and nature. Were we to reset our understanding of ourselves, the techniques and destruction described by Agenda 21 for trimming down sprawl might become a positive influence for America's reurbanization. By that I mean, we must never fall prey to the belief that man is unnatrual.
I for one believe that man is natural, and indivisible from nature. Our actions are natural and so are our lives. Unfortunately we have been sold a proscribed existence as evidence to the contrary by the very experts who would testify to our separation from nature. In essence we have the doctor secretly giving and publically curing the disease to further his own purposes, and you suffer through both disease and cure to profit another. Agenda 21 is snake oil. This economic depression sets the stage for necessary trimming, but at the same time is a catalyst for its opposition to rise. It instigates in-fighting and promotes itself as the unbiased expert.
I oppose Agenda 21 with all of my being, but like most of the programs of the evil minds that dream up these global schemes of domination, they start from some truth. We need to find that truth, promote it, hijack the ship at the appropriate moment and take the correct fork in the road to our sefety away from the thumb of the narcissistic global elite. Unfortunately, since the ship is built and far from port, this is the only option I see. If we keep our heads about us then we will not become those we overthrow, rather we will command with a passion to return to the people their, and our, rightful authority within this nation.
I wonder what will happen at these leveled sites? Will we begin, after a time to farm for ourselves, retake the country side, re sprawl...I guess that does not matter at the moment, what matters is that we understand how to commander this massive deception, and save ourselves from the greed and misguidance of those who do not understand that man is natural and a part of nature. The imbalance we all feel is not a fundamental differentiation, it is self imposed isolation, from our home and humble place within and as a necessary part of the world around us.

What do you think of Freedom21???

Should Freedom21 be part of DP?

I also enjoyed your response very much!

I believe that if we could all realize that everything that we do touches so many.. if we could remember that from moment, we could together build a world where we all could live in peace and harmony.

@ O @ -----> PEOPLE
. @ @ . NOT Corporate Entities!

Wow, I really enjoyed

reading your response. I may have a glimpse into what will happen to the land. I live in an area that the people taxed themselves to buy up land to keep it from the developers. They wanted to keep it from over development.
The land was to stay natural and undeveloped. Next thing I know they built a big new fire and police station on it then they built a senior apartment complex. I am thinking what the hell they developed and then we had to pay increased taxes for all the dang buildings.

And the Re-Wilding

commences...

NWO here we come.

Re-Wilding. Another agenda-21 thing

The government looking at expanding a pioneering scheme in Flint, one of the poorest US cities, which involves razing entire districts and returning the land to nature.

Returning the land to the government.

After destroying the economy, city government will now cheaply buy up the formerly privately-owned land to use in property redistribution or natural resources or whatever bureaucratic boondoggle they choose.

Wha hah??? I thought we were

Wha hah??? I thought we were at the bottom and on the path to recovery?

Just a another glimpse of what's to come. That's where they'll put people to work producing nothing getting paid with monopoly money etc. in so called government recovery programs. Work all day and go back to fema camp at night....
