As governments fail, gated communities become alluring

Nothing illustrates the failure of government like the recent wildfire casualties in northern California.

Residents fled helplessly while overpaid government bureaucrats failed–or refused–to protect their lives and property.

Meanwhile some very wealthy individuals paid for private fire protection.

Now The Hollywood Reporter is out with an interesting article about the allure of gated communities.

More and more housing developments are opting for gated access–with private patrol, security and fire protection.

While many ultra-rich are seeking the protection of gated communities, even poor people are able to afford various levels of private fire and security protection if they look hard enough.
