Excerpt: 

Colonial society is like a ladder. Two ladders, actually, lashed together by miserable circumstance. On one side is Authority—the power of the distant government and her not-so-distant marines. The other represents the vast constellation of criminal enterprise, in opposition and concordance. They are lashed together so tightly that, at times, one cannot be distinguished from the other. One is right and one is, well, wrong, but if you are at the top that hardly matters. And the boldest men do hop to and fro, don’t they? Climbing the Ladder means safety, comfort and a full belly. Getting kicked down a rung means the opposite, to put it mildly.
