This assault on choice is taking place on several different fronts at once. It is happening structurally, with mergers, byouts and corporate synergies. It is happening locally, with a handful of superbrands using their huge cash reserves to force out small independent businesses.

And so we live in a double world: carnival on the surface, consolidation underneath, where it counts.
The island has fifty-four cities all of them large and splendid and having exactly the same language, customs, institutions and laws. They have the same layout and they look the same, insofar as the terrrain allows.
