If these policy makers are determining how poverty is affecting Canadians than a world standard is ineffective since Canada is a wealthy, highly advanced capitalist country....
Honestly, since we live in a country where there is poverty, people living in the streets, or with people barely getting by, there will always be crime.

At the same time it is also obviously not true that states necessarily do this. The powerful state that England built after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 did not systematically harass or murder its citizens and neither did the central state that was constructed in the United States after the ratification of the Constitution. The obvious point is that it matters how and by who the state is governed. Scott recognizes in that the governance of the state, who controls it and in whose interests, is critical in the sense that authoritarianism is necessary to create a really big disaster, but this receives scant attention in .

It is much like confusing a highway exit sign that says "RICHMOND NEXT3 EXITS" with the city itself; the sign points to the destination, butit is by no means itself the destination, and to pull to a stop and chainoneself to the sign is in fact to miss the destination. And, Paulwould say, the ultimate tragedy is that the people who have chained themselvesto the sign (and who are thereby blocking the road for others) aren't evenaware that they have missed the whole point of the journey, which is themain reason why he grieves so earnestly for his fellow Jews in 9:1 andwishes that somehow he could take their place so that they might know thejustification which God had always intended for them.
