Gated Community

You've got it pretty good, and you'd like to see things stay this way. But the way society is divided, with a growing gap between the comfortable winners and the grumbling losers, you think maybe more could be done to protect your privileges. Unfortunately, when the government protects your property, it tends to want to tell you what you should do with it. Therefore, you're inclined to protect your own investment by pooling your resources and implementing your own private security measures to keep the riff-raff at bay. As long as things are good for you inside, there's no need to worry about what's happening on the outside.
