Some Things Never Made Sense: Qward
How would such a universe would work, and why anybody would care if somebody else was not a criminal? How exactly do you get reported for not being a criminal; if you fail to shoplift in stores or rob the cashier on your way out?
Wouldn't such a society quickly stagnate and decay? I mean, if everybody's trying to steal from everybody else, doesn't that mean that nobody's actually doing any productive work? And if everybody's a thief and indeed expected to be, doesn't that imply that the people getting robbed don't mind it?
