Here’s a question for everyone.

Re-urbanization” — using legal and economic coercion to pack us all back into dense cities — is the rallying cry of a certain breed of “anti-sprawl” progressives. (Although I suspect the breed is far from uncommon.) But look at Detroit. The New Deal coalition of Big Business/Big Labor/Big Government has held sway there for decades — and the city has emptied of people and productivity to a the point where their public schools “would close nearly half of its schools in the next two years, and increase high school class sizes to 62 by the following year.”

So I guess the question is: They couldn’t help but ruin one major city, how can we trust them with a nation of them?
