Sure, Detroit was a testing ground for a lot of terrible policies and great example of the consequences of delegating significant responsibilities to government. What libertarians( or whatever) fail to understand is that the collapse stage has been occurring for decades. Currently, Detroit is a better example of a voluntaryist society than a statist one. We hear about the corruption of the local government all the time. The great thing is; they've lost pretty much all credibility in the eyes of Detroiters. Over the past 10 years or so, the city has become a hotbed for young entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, etc. city services suck, so people take things into their own hands in a voluntary way. We have anarcho-security companies, bus services, skate parks, bmx parks, art galleries and studios, street art, pop-up restaurants, theaters, food trucks, etc. People here live like they're free. Half of residents don't even pay their property taxes. There is always something new happening. As inexpensive as housing is, it's nearly impossible to buy a house/loft in the desirable areas. They have multiple offers above the list price, by people who know someone, before they officially hit the market. The ignorant people who keep harping on the decline of Detroit are missing out on the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an amazing, more voluntary revival of a great city.
