191. It's 'cheaper' than the alternative: a society where everyone is cherished.
Expense of creating a just society, to the monied class, is unacceptable burden -- meaning it would cost them a percentage of their loot.

Fixing society's ills -- from unemployment to education to homelessness to hunger to illness -- is expensive.

That's why they prefer spending money to keep a man incarcerated for year -- still more expensive than sending him to Harvard for a year.

It's important for the Order to demonstrate the pyramid, the hierarchical nature of society with themselves positioned as near the top as possible: it enables them to divide, conquer and control the populace better.

Next thing is they'll realize it's too expensive to run the prisons. Then they'll just do away with them altogether.

Then it's their war-war-war and a much more habitable, if lonely, world.
