I just figured it out. how could I have been so dense? America is being turned into a 3rd-world country deliberately, using the same ghettofication/gentrification tactics used in cities and neighborhoods forever. it's one of the easiest strategies for the rich getting richer, now that there's no more land to steal: make things intolerable so the middle-class people move out, driving down prices. over the next generation or 3, slowly buy it back and gentrify it, make it the next "big thing". rinse and repeat. buckle your seat belt, Dorothy.
