Even a diamond is flawed.When the rough diamond is cut by the dealer it takes into account the natural flaws in the diamond.This is to maximise the reflection and refraction light in the diamond for optimum color to the eye for the buyer.

I say this because I believe that nothing can exist without flaws including social structures.We as a species are drawn towards mediocrity in my observations. The fuckwit drunk doing a "streak" at a sporting event becomes the focus of great hilarity amongst the crowd.More often than not a front page photograph in the following days tabloid newspaper as well.The majority of drunken behaviour at a social event is laughed off as "the alcohol talking".This sometimes includes both men and women aggravating another partygoer, who has to play it all down to the cheers of the group, who often know each other.Lets face it  many folks need alcohol to "come out of their shell" and everyone knows it.

The vast number of liquor outlets in any sizeable city in the world would I think be staggering and creates employment for many folks.The ubiquitous drunk driver is a product of the weaknesses of ordinary folk needing a "crutch" outlet and thus creating lots of employment for the workforce.

I personally think that the plethora of social problems facing every city in the world have a need not to be easily solvable.If they were then we would have "the perfect diamond" so to speak.This is not possible in nature and then by comparison not possible in everyday life.

For instance if everyone was a law abiding citizen then we would not need a police force.If this was extended internationally then we would not need an army either.Think of the countless billions of dollars spent on the "arms race" between powerful nations and the millions of personnel needed to manage it all.On and on it goes to include courts of law and counsellors to name but a few more areas of massive employment.We are probably all flawed in some way and are part of the problem that cannot tolerate a quick and lasting solution that would put millions of us folks out of work.

So in summing up my exercise in lateral thinking,the humble uncut diamond produced by the forces of nature, reflects most of what we find in human society.Just as a perfect diamond cannot exist in nature, then a perfect society would have no need of many of those institutions that create jobs for the masses.
