Rise of the Edge: The Social

A great article and a great idea - do not miss.

What I find interesting is that the States has been so hypperrationalized that simple, obvious ideas like this were completely outside and contradictory to the dominant logic of our culture - it was only bureaucratic, machinelike ideas grounded in the naively simple language of physics and economics that were considered legitimate.

This is an old idea, which has taken literally a century to come back to the fore - policing originally was less about guns-->control than social-->control. Fascinating, if tragic.
