the broken windows broken republic hypothesis

I pass this luxury building every morning. Its maintenance men used to put the diesel hose away after each visit by the fuel truck, but last month they stopped. Apparently they no longer think it worth their while to take the hose out every morning – and apparently the residents do not complain about having an ugly black hose littering the entrance.
To me this is one of the more depressing signs of how low things have become here. Settling on a president is this week’s big issue, but it is not the only one.
