Down And Out

Oh, yes.

As always, by the light of day it's neither as original nor as interesting as it was at 4 A.M. But here goes:

When you are designing your Utopia, remember this: People will be people, and to make things work, somewhere there will have to be men with guns. And it does not necessarily make things better for them to be hidden from view.

What brought this on? Last night I was reading Cory Doctorow's new book Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. It's not a bad book, and you can download it for free, which is always a plus.

But the society described in the book simply wouldn't work - unless there are, somewhere behind the scenes, men with guns.

Read it anyway.
