Crawl Across the Ocean

Saturday, July 31, 2010


The last time the global economic scorekeeping system ran into trouble because a few players were hoarding all the poker chips (the 1930's) so nobody else could bet, the only thing the folks in charge could come up with as a high enough priority to merit redistributing the chips more equitably was a World War.

This time around, our weapons are advanced enough that a war fought with the same intensity as World War II would probably bring about the collapse of our civilization - so the folks in charge will have to come up with some other solution. Or we could just have a feeble global economy indefinitely, I suppose.
