Yes, the Wall. My point, gg, is that few saw that coming... Remember how permanently entrenched that divide seemed to be?

So, maybe the current threats will somehow also dissipate, despite present appearances.

That said, if your interpretation of Susan's wider point about preserving communication system involves the preservation of infrastructure in general, I would most certainly agree with Susan.

If I were the king of the world, one decree I might issue would go like the following:

"In exchange for free advanced education, or the total exoneration of student debt, recipients shall first serve for two years becoming expert in things like water supply management, sewer systems, firefighting, macro emergency food services, communications, civic defense and do on, yadda yadda.

"In addition I, King Poster Boy, decree that those who excel, either through their relative mastery, or through their noted dedication, (in order to accommodate the less brilliant), shall be gifted with fully paid 3d printed house and a fossil free vehicle, to be provided no less than one week after completion of the two year civic training.

"I King Poster Boy, have spoken!! "

Consider the sewage system alone...

How many people in a city of one million even know what the real requirements are here?

5?

10?

What if the economic system breaks down and theses individuals decide to move elsewhere, if economic-capitalist necessity???

Who's going to be able to manage this vital system, which must be managed immediately??

Why not ensure that no less than 5k local citizens know exactly what's involved and how to respond in this and other vital contexts?

Next, what if some of those graduates were to voluntarily sign up with excellent capitalist-related agencies like the Gates Foundation, taking their skills to poorer countries in order to build state if the art sewer systems there?

These are things that we don't even BEGIN to think about nowadays, and that myopic mass inertia is just plain stupid, totally retarded, really given what we KNOW regarding how vulnerable our infrastructure is, if were incur a major hit.

We are totally exposed, when it comes to our ability to cope with sudden macro emergencies.

If you think this through, you may also agree that the general idea makes sense. It's what I think of as enlightened civil self defense.

Susan, I'd be interested to hear you thoughts on this general idea... the King Poster Boy business notwithstanding, of course. :)
