    I think you’re referring to Australia around the late 18th century.

    No, she’s referring to America in the late 21st.

    It’s a Bradbury thing.

    Sounds like the parody “Prison Prison Break” on VH-1 a few years ago:

    At least in prison we can have Pussy Riot concerts.

    This was precisely the premise of a Kilgore Trout novel. I think it’s in Venus On The Half-Shell.

    Ah, the joys of extrapolation beyond the region of validity. Lies, damn lies, and straight-line fits to exponential decay plots.

    That one last policeman is going to have an appalling tax burden.

    Sending a link to The Prison Book Program in Quincy, MA right now. Need to print-out copies for a few other organizations/meetings.

    But what if that one guy outside prison commits a crime?

    He should turn himself in.

    Reminiscent of the taxation system in late Antiquity in Rome!

    Sounds like the Jews in the Holocaust guarding other Jews.

    And of course, prison inside prison is solitary confinement.

    This is closer to reality than it should be.

    And then that last police is killed by wild dogs…

    Visited by many authors, the best was “Outside the Asylum” where the last sane man on the planet lived in his own walled enclosure.
