If you don't, consider these headlines from the past 24 hours:
A FedEx tractor-trailer was blocked by several cars in a Memphis, Tennessee, intersection before dozens of people pillaged the back of the truck for packages, leaving boxes discarded all over the road during the brazen weekend theft.
Video from the scene shows multiple people running through parked cars in the road toward the FedEx truck as the driver attempts to escape the ravagers who are carrying their loot.
Video captured from a nearby apartment shows the thieves jumping out of the front of the van and running to the back where the door is already opened, before hopping back in and filling their arms with packages.
The camera then turned to the driver, who was in the middle of her delivery route, abruptly stopped walking and watched as her truck was ransacked.
This sort of thing has become commonplace in parts of many large US cities. It's not limited to trucks, either: in some places, even trains are being looted almost at will.
Our cities are becoming worse and worse by the day. They contain sizeable underclasses of residents who care nothing for honesty or the rule of law, and who don't fear the police or the justice system at all. They know they can get away with almost anything, even murder, and therefore they do as they please. Left-wing progressive District Attorneys no longer bother to enforce many laws, and when they do it's in a slap-on-the-wrist fashion rather than seeking genuinely deterrent punishment - a clear signal to the lawless that there are no limits restraining them.
I sometimes get the feeling I'm talking to a brick wall when I keep warning about the dangers of living in "big blue" cities, because few people appear to take my warnings seriously. Nevertheless, I'll keep providing evidence, in the hope that at least some of my readers may see the light in time, and get the hell out of them before it's too late.

Folks, if you can't read the writing on the wall by this point, I don't know how to reach you. Too many people are judging the cities they live in by the conditions around their suburban homes, where everything looks just peachy and hunky-dory. However, that ignores the festering plague spots of low-income, low-education, overcrowded, urban-decay, crime-infested areas where the people live largely on government benefits and have little to no hope of ever breaking free from that cycle of dependency. They're part of the same cities as those suburbs. When the stresses in those areas stretch too tight, or the benefits they depend on are no longer available (or are reduced in value thanks to inflation and rising prices), they display their displeasure by becoming more violent and anti-social.
. . .
Friends, our cities have fallen so far that I seriously doubt they can be rescued. They'll have to hit rock bottom, and realize it, and take steps to cut away the deadwood that's crippling them, before they can rise again. If you stay, hoping for the best, I fear greatly that you may end up as part of the deadwood that's cut away.
I hope I'm wrong . . . but I doubt it. The evidence of what's coming is overwhelming. It won't happen overnight, or even in a year or two, but the overall trend is unmistakeable, and probably irreversible.
Leave our "big blue" cities while you still can, even if it means taking a financial loss in the process. Some things - your family, your and their lives, your security - are worth more than money.

Welcome to Robert A. Heinlein's "crazy years". If you want to avoid them as far as possible, don't be where they're in full swing. Get out of our big cities. Now.
