But the truth is that multiculturalism increasingly became an operative mode for establishing fiefdoms.
The problem is not technology but the management of business systems and information technology as a whole, not as two competing fiefdoms.
When their reputations are all-important, corporations can't carry on as private fiefdoms with no obligations other than to the capital markets.
Europe is fragmented into petty fiefdoms and is in turmoil after the Viking raids.
The possibility therefore exists of a new patchwork of local fiefdoms growing up, each imposing their own, unrelated, rationing criteria.
