@khurtwilliams Right, yes. The party is being run in a building; around back the mobsters — who own and run everything — are beating people up, torturing people, running drugs, corrupting the various levels of government, and likely many more terrible things we have not yet discovered. Also, the building is rotting, likely to catch fire at any time, and is probably infecting you with some sort of devastating health issue.

But hey; we all need to be at the party even if there are alternative ways of doing that so we… tolerate the awful side of things?
