It just reminded me of that activity we did at NSLC, the first day. We were divided into four groups, given a taped-off area to work in, and tasks to complete - one group was small, had a lot of space and resources; one was medium sized all across; one had few resources, a small space, but a small number of people; and the final one (my group) had tons of people, few resources, and a small space.
When the game started, I immediately stood outside the taped area because there was no room. That, apparently, was against the rules, and I was hauled off to 'jail'. Eventually I was paroled, and sent back to my tiny area, where I attempted to get things organized but no one would listen. Eventually I got fed up and just stood outside the tape until I was hauled off back to jail, where I proceeded to act up enough to not get paroled again - although I eventually was, and I immediately sneaked back into prison because it was just more fun.
You might've been able to guess that it was a representation of society (upper class, middle class, rural lower class, urban lower class). It always amused me that the only people in the entire group that I liked wound up in jail with me (or were lucky enough to be upper class and therefore didn't have issues). Somehow, though, I don't think the moral they wanted was that only criminals have a sense of humor.
