"While law enforcers have existed in one form or another for centuries, the
modern police have their roots in the relatively recent rise of modern property
relations 200 years ago, and the "disorderly conduct" of the urban poor. Like
every structure we've known all our lives, it seems that the policing paradigm
is inescapable and everlasting, and the only thing keeping us from the
precipice of a dystopic Wild West scenario. It's not."
Some interesting thoughts. Via Skitz O'Fuel and Woozle Hypertwin.
