decline for the majority. Nation states still exist, despite the globalists dreams otherwise. Cities exist. Streets exist. Therefore if others within the society you live in become desperate enough, your life also becomes affected in many ways and becomes that bit less pleasant. You might have to pay more for security, take different routes to work, hell if it gets bad enough you end up living like the wealthy in parts of South Africa, fenced in and having to drive armored vehicles. None of which is actually a very nice way to live and all of which increases the chances that you'll end up dying by the sword you so eagerly profess to live by. The fact is it doesn't matter what you believe ideologically - history shows us that if the lives of the many get bad enough then even the very wealthy are no longer protected, in fact they often become actual targets. This has happened over and over and over again in history. You sneer at the 'plebs' but those plebs will eventually do something about their situation - if and when their situation gets bad enough. What they do no one can know. Sometimes there is revolution, others there is massive social unrest, in places civil war breaks out, often extremist politics takes a hold. None of which is particlularly pleasant for anyone. So it kind of doesn't pay to screw people over too much, for anyone. And I'd have a lot more respect for you Randian types if you weren't utter hypocrites when it comes down to it. Unless you go and voluntarily live in some stateless society such as Somalia, then I can't really take anything you say seriously. And I imagine that most of you will be the first to scream for state protection if things do get really ugly and people just start to take what they want. floundering 28 May 2012 2:17PM Response to englishhermit, 28 May 2012 11:28AM Fleets of minibuses are hooked up to GPS and mobile phones via a server.
