doing yet another reread and this caught my eye.


But for every juvenile criminal there are always one or more adult delinquents— people of mature years who either do not know their duty, or who, knowing it, fail. “And that was the soft spot which destroyed what was in many ways an admirable culture. The junior hoodlums who roamed their streets were symptoms of a greater sickness; their citizens (all of them counted as such) glorified their mythology of ‘rights’ . . . and lost track of their duties. No nation, so constituted, can endure.”

The entire dialogue on the fall of the United States and inner city problems and crime and punishment and discipline is fantastic.

Jerry Pournelle was a prophet

The United States of the CoDominium Era is a welfare state divided into two classes: Citizens and Taxpayers. "Citizens" are welfare dependents who are required to live in walled sections of cities called "Welfare Islands." People are given whatever they need, including the drugs like Borloi to keep them pacified. There are no limits to how long they can stay on welfare, except that they must live in a Welfare Island. Although people are free to gain an education and work or become a colonist, many citizens did not, preferring to live their whole lives supported by the government. Generally citizens are uneducated and illiterate. Some BuReLoc involuntary colonists are Citizens. By the late CD era, the Welfare Islands were three generations old. "Taxpayers" are the working, educated, and privileged upper class. They carry identification cards to separate them from Citizens.

No you didn't. "You're" is a contraction of "You Are" so "You Talk like a fag and you are shits all retarded" is how your correction would make the sentence appear.

"Your" is indicative of ownership; Ex: "YOUR SHITS ALL RETARDED" as in: the shit of which you are in ownership of, is all retarded.

No, it should be "You talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded" because "shit's" is a contraction of "shit is". I saw that right away in the first post.

we definitely need to distinguish between citizens and residents....citizens recognize their duty and give back/serve while residents are just here for the benefits and sometimes pay taxes

Except shit is not plural in this context, it's an incorrect contraction of "shit is", so it is a double fail. It should be "shit's".

People who inherit large amounts of wealth, typically hire people to manage that money and grow it. They may not be working 9 to 5, but they create more wealth than the average American.

Then they still aren't doing anything. In their own way, they are also moochers except in their case it's mooching off the accomplishments of their family, which is better than mooching off the taxpayer, I suppose. Paris Hilton being a good example. She contributes nothing, and her sole money making ability is through her name and nest egg.

Who cares? They employ people who take that money and invest it where it gives the money's owner a good return and gives others the capital they need to get their projects going. I hope one day I have enough money that no one in my lineage ever has to work a day in their life.

"Your" is indicative of ownership; Ex: "YOUR SHITS ALL RETARDED" as in: the shit of which you are in ownership of, is all retarded.


And fuck my life, I'm going to bed now

Although people are free to gain an education and work or become a colonist, many citizens did not, preferring to live their whole lives supported by the government. Generally citizens are uneducated and illiterate. Some BuReLoc involuntary colonists are Citizens. By the late CD era, the Welfare Islands were three generations old. "Taxpayers" are the working, educated, and privileged upper class. They carry identification cards to separate them from Citizens.


What about inherited wealth? They are neither working or poor, so where do they fit in?




People who inherit large amounts of wealth, typically hire people to manage that money and grow it. They may not be working 9 to 5, but they create more wealth than the average American.


Then they still aren't doing anything. In their own way, they are also moochers except in their case it's mooching off the accomplishments of their family, which is better than mooching off the taxpayer, I suppose. Paris Hilton being a good example. She contributes nothing, and her sole money making ability is through her name and nest egg.

No one who has played Paris Hilton's video over and over again can say "she contributes nothing."

Actually, where do you think millions of dollars borrowed to build a new factory that hires thousands of people comes from?
