Anyone care to take a gander at how much wealth would be created by imposing Order (in the reactionary or Moldbuggian sense) on Detroit? I suspect that even were you to impose NYC policing norms (how the hell do they get away with that in NYC anyway), you'd be talking billions of dollars created virtually overnight, in a manner that'd make even Helicopter Ben envious.
How much wealth have we foregone in the US because we lack the will to impose Order? How would the number of people you'd have to kill to impose Order compare to the ordinary toll of homicide and aggravated assault imposed by the lack of Order?
Could an Imperial Governor from the old school---perhaps @1900 or so---make Detroit the envy of America?
Achieving a state of Order really wouldn't be that hard insofar as a technical or military problem. It is solely an issue of Will. Presently we lack the Will even to ask the question in public.
