A Vision Of Our Future

I want to urgently encourage you to look at this collection of photos of the now-demolished Kowloon Walled City.  It is a view of the future that the Republican party has in store for the 99.99% of Americans who cannot self-finance political campaigns.  Here are a couple of examples:


I am not kidding here.  These things are not sets from Blade Runner or some other dystopian movie about the future.  It is a place where over a million people once lived, and it is exactly the sort of environment which sociopathic billionaires like the Koch brothers think is a suitable home for the rest of us. I have said for a long time that one of two fates await the workers of this country: either they bring the incomes of foreign workers closer to their own, or they are going to see their lives descend into the plight of foreign workers.  Well, here are some great pictures of what that looks like.  Please take a look and decide if this is a good enough life for your children and grandchildren.
