How can people live this way/let this happen?! I wonder how long it'll be before vigilante justice takes over.

Hmm, on the other hand... I've always wanted my own private island. The way it looks me and a few of us here could rule Britania. Hey Ironraven, do you want to be Dravot or Carnehan? Anyone else want in?

Even Arthur, King of the Britons had a difficult time making the peasants understand that he was king.

Don't forget "Tunnel in the Sky"!! Throw some L. Niven and A.C. Clarke in too.

If you have the time read this series and let me know what you think.
