Good book. It seems a MM programme will have to utilize entrepreneurial principles to develop MM, then transition to guardian principles to see it safely implemented, and then back to entrepreneurial to avoid a nano-tyranny and see MM benefits acrue.

Hm... I think "securing" is closer than "taking." A Guardian system doesn't have to expand indefinitely. It keeps the resources it needs. Of course, it exploits failures of neighboring Guardian systems.

In the Foreward to Systems of Survival, Jacobs says something like: She originally called the systems "Traders" and "Raiders," but as she studied more she came to see that the Guardian system is positive in its own way.
