Sounds like it is time to wall off Detroit and make movies the reality.
Detroit was the City of the Future in Democratic Party promotions. They don't talk about it that way now do they? They own the total failure, just like Oakland, CA and Tacoma, Wa.
I agree: wall it off and make a reality show. A true “Survivor.”
You should e-mail John Carpenter and Kurt Russell; see if they’re up for it.
Write a screenplay; not much original research needed, just turn on the news!
Reminds of the original “RoboCop” (the sequels sucked), where Detroit was portrayed as pretty much Hell on Earth. Good film, and one of my favorite dark satires as well.
