11. For the same reasons people always do.

The ruling class throws us just enough bones to make obedience easier than revolution. Circuses, some bread, slathered in propaganda sauce. It'll keep most of us alive and indoors, and persuade us that those left out aren't really people.

It's a precarious position to rule from, so some of us are paid well to keep the others in line--and thugs can always find jobs as enforcers.
