“Meet Allan Hill, the man who lives In Detroit’s abandoned Packard Auto Plant”

Depressing but… Could we see a lot more of this in the near future? He has a roof, electricity, a computer, and something to do. No running water or other amenities. I suspect it gets cold in there during the winter.

Thanks to Kate at SDA who calls it ‘Great moments in socialism’.

    I am not really sure what to make of this romantic video, other than a man have managed to survive in an “abandoned” building in Detriot for 7 years, without being killed and still looking out at the dereliction, have optimism that Detriot shall rise again.

    I have no sympathy for this man. Not only does he live rent free, he has electricity & internet. He has chosen this lifestyle. He’s more free than either one of us.

    I spent a lot of time talking to the homeless in my younger days. Most that I talked to chose that life. Many for drugs or alcohol, but mnay for the non-conformance it allowed.

    That title “Great Moments In Socialism” was a jab at socialism, by the way. The original post was from Pajamas Media, courtesy of Richard Fernandez: http://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/2013/03/02/oblivion/

      He doesn’t want your sympathy. He may have chosen this life but he states he was urged by the owner to stay there, certainly not for drugs or alcohol. He’s not homeless, he is not begging for money on the side of the southfield freeway. He is an honest, hardworking man and you should respect him as he would respect you.
