    They will get all the food they need; so will their kids, especially if they become a hereditary caste since they'll be the only ones eating enough to grow that big.  The system will think nothing of starving that many more people to death in order to protect the revenue off those assets.

    Much the same will be true of the military: more big and active men who are indispensable for keeping the plutocrats in the black as well as politicians in power.

    Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.

      We have guns and drones and other such things.

      Maybe there will be a videogame playing drone driving caste.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

      I think such a view is simplistic at best.  Global breakdown of systems, if that's what events come to, won't be manageable via gated community.
