    The Kochs, of course, will always be able to buy whatever they need to subsist, even water.
    Not sure of their exact age, but I think they're older than I, who just turned 60. So for their remaining years that's probably accurate.

    But for the class of people whom the Kochs are emblematic of, I think that's fallacious reasoning, especially for them who are used to luxurious living. If social order collapses, they will not be immune from the consequences indefinitely.

        They won't last that much longer, nor will they wholly escape a share of the worldwide misery.

        They'll merely have the comfort of knowing that they're slightly better off than everyone else., but how is that something to look forward to?
