57. Peer pressure has its own sort of mechanism for perpetuating a power structure.

If you're a Host and another Host does something that you may be opposed to, you might overlook it because it gives you a future opportunity to do something that other Hosts will overlook. It's basic politics on a more general level. Tit for tat. Random peers are not subject to this behavior, because they don't know each other and the overall best solution is to be completely honest and fair.

Peer to peer file sharing gives us a lot of advice toward 'appropriate' and 'just' behavior.
