    This is a really good post.  Thank God for that last sentence; I can't bear to think we're powerless to prevent this.  Event Horizon's scenario can be described as high-tech feudalism, and the serfs in the Dark Ages were definitely powerless.  (Try imagining living that life.)  Global thinking by the plutocrats is a plausible explanation for their complacency in the face of the disappearing middle class and resulting loss of consumer spending.
