Kwanstainia, Land of Innovation

Most people don't realize you can actually just crap in the street if you want to.

Just like you can steal anything made of metal and sell it for scrap.

There aren't enough security guards on the planet to maintain every inch of a civilization.

All societies depend on a goodwill system where people choose freely not to crap in driveways or dismantle highway overpasses or tear up train rails. There is no other system that works. It is all running on the honor system around the clock whether the inhabitants realize it or not.

I've seen as little as 1% of the population decide to misbehave a little and the police actually pulled out and abandoned the city I was in. The reason is that 1% is enough to do it. That's what a thin veneer a civilization really is.
