The Totally Managed Universal Order has its problems. Perfect uniform central control of everything takes an infinite amount of time and effort, and is never carried out even tolerably well by those on the scene. Here is a field report from the new England, where a drunk on a train or child who bumps his head can now take up the better part of a day for everyone connected, because of the standards and process any mildly out-of-the-ordinary event now invokes. The natural outcome of the trend is infinite inefficiency made bearable only by limitless corruption and hypocrisy. The old Soviet Union may be dead, but it is still the future!
