Street Fighting Man: A Detroit Documentary

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Street Fighting Man is a documentary about three generations of men living on the east side of Detroit. It shows what happens to communities who have been left with no option but to fend for themselves and their families. Celeste Headlee had the opportunity to screen the film last week in Detroit and shares her reaction.

This is a small but tragic example of what happens when a society collapses and if it can happen to this American city it can happen to the nation as a whole. Sixty years of "progressive" good intentions and ruinous corruption have led to the decline of this once prosperous industrial and artistic city.

This nation now is heading to $20 trillion dollars in debt with a popular President who tells us what we want to hear but offers nothing but more of the same failed policies.

Are we going to ignore the lessons of Detroit and will it become the rule rather than the exception in this nation by mid-century? It's not too late to change course.
