Class war and repression are said to have driven the Los Angeles Socialists into the desert Pg 9 Why would anyone want to live in the desert The once militarized desert created a place for people to have homes With the population growing in such large numbers and the land growing scarce they had to begin developing the vacant land The population needed a place to live Pg 4 Dirt and dollar signs and advertising homes with lush names appealed to the middle and upper classes The fact that they could live in the fastest growing metropolis in the advanced industrial world made them excited The city of Los Angeles was new and still developing In the meantime the economic state was changing The rich got richer the poor were even more poor and the middle class was cut in half Everything about the growing city seemed perfect and I suppose for some it was However along with growth and change there comes crime Several incidents took place in Los Angeles against people of color involving the police Anglos became a minority in the city and county of Los Angeles during the 1980s Pg 7 The city of Los Angeles was created for the white urbanized higher middle and upper classes I think Davis primary thesis or point in the book is just that Los Angeles was being developed into a city for the wealthy by the wealthy He describes all the hardships that the poor and middle classes go through to survive in the city The middle and lower classes are completely separated from the wealthy society as Los Angeles is built and after it exists It is amazing how the wealthy can create such a perfect utopia for themselves especially being the minority and with all the people fighting against them I guess things worked out for them because they fought so hard for all of the changes and ways they wanted
