Holyoke, Massachusetts - Spectacular urban/industrial/environmental city planning. We've totally lost it today....

A few weeks ago I took a wrong turn and ended up seeing the future.

Holyoke, Massachusetts - way back when, had their act totally together.

Dam the Connecticut River, and use water and gravity to create 1,000's of mill "jobs".

I will get a Google earth image inserted here which shows  the canal system in Holyoke.   The canals are still there today, and there is still power generated.

Today, we are such a fraud. And most of us don't know we are a fraud.  I didn't know until I took that wrong turn.

But now I know.   In America we are feeding ourselves total hypocrisy.   

We are going so backwards. 

The Holyoke mill area today is pretty much Latin, but I don't think they get it either.
