I liked the way in which this guy discusses the issue - RSA - Crises Of Capitalism. BTW I'm not saying I agree with his opinions, I don't (and don't wish to) know enough about politics and economics!!!

Oh, and for another example of the use of razor wire, my boss recently took a trip to India to visit our new outsourcing partners. They have very high-tech facilities and infrastructure to ensure connectivity on the work campus, though not so much in the surrounding city. The work campus, he said, is surrounded by barbed wire and protected by guards with machine guns.


I am sorry. As an Indian I find the machine guns a bit hard to swallow. Hell the Mumbai police were equipped with 303 rifles from WWII when the terrorists struck there. If possible, can you share the details like name, location?

Either private guards with western private cash are better equipped -- or else my boss is no gun expert, saw a magazine sticking out the bottom of the gun and assumed. (Most hunting rifles traditionally used in the U.S. are functionally no different from those .303 Enfields of WWII, but they're "sporterized" with a prettier stock and a 4- or 5-round internal magazine that does not protrude from the bottom.)
