We don't have to wait for $trillion dollar "stimulus" packages to cause a complete economic collapse to have cool postapocalyptic adventures like Mad Max. Thanks to having been run exclusively by lefties for decades, America's most liberal city has already crossed into the bleak future moonbattery has in store for us, making it an ideal destination for urban explorers. Recently, someone called a reporter with a tip on a dead guy found in the elevator shaft of an abandoned building on Detroit's west side:
"He's encased in ice, except his legs, which are sticking out like Popsicle sticks," the caller phoned to tell this reporter.
"Why didn't your friend call the police?"
"He was trespassing and didn't want to get in trouble," the caller replied. As it happens, the caller's friend is an urban explorer who gets thrills rummaging through and photographing the ruins of Detroit. It turns out that this explorer last week was playing hockey with a group of other explorers on the frozen waters that had collected in the basement of the building. None of the men called the police, the explorer said. They, in fact, continued their hockey game.
According to a derelict who lives in the building, the corpse had "been down there since last month at least." No one had bothered to call the police. After several calls to 911, the reporter managed to get the Fire Department to come haul the corpse away.
According to liberal ideology, human life is a random accident, devoid of meaning. This is why progressives have no qualms about abortion. It's also why stories like this one will become all the more common if our culture continues to go off the rails to the left.
