HOW CHICAGO MADE ITSELF VIOLENT

FACT IS, DIGITAL-AGE CHICAGO HAS NEVER SOUGHT TO ADDRESS PUBLIC VIOLENCE IN ITS TOTALITY. IT'S NEVER USED ITS DIGITAL- AGE PUBLIC COMMUNICATION SYSTEM (ITS MEDIA) TO SECURE THE  PUBLIC INPUT, INVOLVEMENT and trust NEEDED TO MAKE chicago SAFE. INSTEAD, IT'S RELIED ON INDUSTRIAL-AGE RESOURCES (MAINLY ITS POLICE FORCE) MERELY to REDUCE VIOLENCE.

AND IT'S FAILED
DISASTROUSLY
TO DO EVEN THAT!

BOTTOM LINE,
DIGITAL-AGE chicago 
HAS
BEEN ADDRESSING VIOLENCE IN
AN INDUSTRIAL-AGE WAY.

AS A RESULT, IT is
now USING 
all SIX of
its ANTi-VIOLENCE RESOURCES
INEFFECTIVELY (and at times
COUNTERPRODUCTIVELY).


THINK ABOUT IT:

  • Nearly six decades of failure to make Chicago less violent than it is today

  • Violence now a CITYWIDE problem

  • Three generations of Chicago youth lost to violence, counting fast to four​​

  • Billions of taxpayer dollars spent annually on failed attempts to reduce violence

  • Zero attempts ever to make Chicago  SAFE

  • No anti-violence plan prepared with the input of all Chicagoans

  • No attempt ever to make use of Chicago's powerful media to reduce violence

  • City leaders Chicago's violence
