Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Modern feudalism can only be a highly unequal society with non universal law but relations written in personal contracts. My only point is that we did have these kind of countries in the past in South-America, and all of them became more equal over time.

When chinese and Indian and Indonesian modern feudal lords appear the same thing will happen again, there.

Actually, one could argue that Mexico fifteen years ago was a perfect example of the modern feudal system (and it is has large areas with pure classical feudal system), and it was less unequal that any classical feudal system that it ever existed.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
