‘Urban Hellscape’: Seneca Scott Breaks Down How Elites in America Are Systematically Destroying Cities | TEASER
American Thought Leaders
“They want systemic lawlessness. They want high retail theft," says Seneca Scott, founder of Neighbors Together Oakland. It's "managed decline from eviction moratoriums, managed decline from defunding police, managed decline from $950 you can steal from stores, not being able to catch people." “Mega billionaires are giving money to defend the police movements. The same individuals are the largest investors in AI autonomous security,” Mr. Scott said. He has been documenting how Oakland, California became, as he describes it, an “urban hellscape.” Once a progressive Democrat and labor organizer who represented thousands of union workers in California, he says woke ideology took over the labor movement and it stopped representing the actual needs of workers. “That’s when I saw that we were being used by the mega-billionaire class as very useful idiots for a very nefarious agenda of control,” Mr. Scott said. He argues the elites are pitting the upper middle class against the lower class and promoting class warfare. Now, Mr. Scott is the founder of Neighbors Together Oakland and sees himself as a “post-partisan solutionary.”
