Mad Max Society

With a collapsed state, the rulers lose control; with a privatized state, they can increase consolidation. In such a Mad Max society, people are utterly disenfranchised. This in turn leads to generalized impunity.

It is a fundamentally criminal structure.

[ paraphrased from Poisoned Wells by Nicholas Shaxson ]
