He's trying to recreate the flawed Greece narative here.

Irresponsibility sure is fun, but eventually it leads to future pain...that's pretty much the definition of "irresponsibility": enjoying the present at the expense of the future.

When the irresponsibility finally puts you in a position to change and be responsible again (as inevitably will happen), IT SUCKS! It is SUPPOSED to SUCK! That's the whole point.

But when it sucks, it's not the "change to responsibility" that is causing the suck, it's the years of irresponsibility.

For Detroit (and Greece): Slashing of government services isn't CAUSING the turmoil...The years of irresponsible behavior that now requires slashing of services caused the turmoil.

Stopping heroin isn't the CAUSE of withdrawal symptoms.
