We are not talking about drastically remaking your neighborhood, are we? We are not talking about the problems in your neck of the woods, are we?

How come "Detroit" mean one thing in one context - "I am from Detroit and so I get to say what should be done!" - and another thing in another context - when it comes to the people directly affected by this?

You live in the "Detroit" that gets to boss people. The people being bossed live in this other "Detroit" that has a lot of problems that you are going to fix. That is exactly the point I have been trying to make, and you just made it for me.

Are the problems in this country being caused by the bosses, or by the bossed?

Where is the spiritual slum? Where are the perpetrators? Where are the ones setting the agenda, who have the power? Where are the ones who have driven the country off the cliff? Where are people sick, sick with racism, arrogance, callousness, cruelty, anti-social attitudes and behavior?

The suburbanites - almost 100% of them when asked the question about where the problems are, remarkably - will say "down there in Detroit! In the inner city! We need to do something!"

I say they are projecting.
