The other day in class Prof. Mckinney said the word "Paradigm Shift" pertaining to people and cities. my freshman seminar was all about paradigm shifts and what they are. so this really go me thinking about the paradigm shifts that we need to have in today's society. no longer can we rely on industrialization and things like the auto industry or textile industries to supply us with jobs and money. no longer can we see ourselves as the victims of the worlds problems but as a part of the problem. things need to change fast in order to fix all of the problems that we face today. economies need to shift into a new style to conform with our changing world. the urban agricultural movement is one of the fastest growing movements today and it is a huge movement in Detroit. could we see Detroit become a farming city in the near future? anything could happen but the thing we all need to realize is that a "paradigm shift" is needed and we need to be a part of it.
