the structure that is modern society

watching the events unravel in new orleans should really push home to people how close society -- no matter how sophisticated, genteel, refined, complex, proud, humane, whatever -- is to the edge of complete chaotic disintegration. i think it is important to really comprehend how easy it would be for the world around you -- all the things you take for granted and assume will always be there -- to come crashing down, and for you to find yourself in a world you don't recognize. a world where you survive on wits, brute force, negotiating skills, and/or luck.

it took two to three days in new orleans.
