  •  The didn't mention property taxes (1+ / 0-)

    Although, if they allow individuals to own property, then they can't throw them out if they fall below "minimum thresholds".   Property taxes are how cities throw non-productive people off their land.    I wonder how they intend to throw imperfect people out of their utopian paradise.

    It's easy to start out with the ideal population, but it's hard to maintain one.  What do they do with shiftless kids of their Randian Heroes (the ones who were neglected by their work-obsessed parents glued to their crackberries)  who refuse to get a job?   March them down to the city gates, and toss them out?     I think I read that novel.  It was called "Brave New World".
