Valerie I would say it's more of a micro-world. There was a reporter once who warned us to beware of countries with high walls and tinted windows. The exclusive communities created by the 'rich and powerful' are effectively highly upholstered prisons: the rich can't escape them any more than those outside can get in.

Of course, the rich and powerful aren't immune to the miasma of the pollution theyre creating. When the cholera epidemics hit because they aren't maintaining the water supply, cholera will strike them, as well. But in the meantime, they're still able to fool themselves that they're doing well--even as they drop off from karoshi and other stress-related conditions.
