Police State Murka and Third World Murka. It’s here…now…today.
What? You didn’t think there was such a thing anymore?
America has exceptional poverty. It’s just that the TV channels and newspapers don’t cover it. Kind of embarrassing that real poverty exists in the “land of the free.”
Your nearest big city has one too. It is easy to recognize if…..…… you know what to look for:
– gates on the windows
– check cashing businesses
– “we accept EBT” signs
– bus stops with actual people waiting
– people riding bikes…cheap ones, not 10K hipster style ones with spandex.
Nothing is solved. We’ve got drunks, crack addicts, heroin addicts, pushers, whores, young tuffs, robbers all on the streets. It has been pushed out of view, which for Americans, means it does not exist.
This is how it is in the third world also. Poverty scares the capitalists and tourists. It’s not good for business. The deal is, the poor stay out of the rich areas and the rich stay out of the poor areas. The cops enforce the first and the robbers enforce the second.
