People on Mars, beggars in the streets

Beggar in Rome / I.A. Daglis
Beggars slumped in the doorways. There were people on Mars and there were beggars in the streets of the nation’s capital, and all the lawyers walked by them every day, their freedom-and-justice talk no more than a cover for greed. “We’re gonna do it differently on Mars”, Frank said...
Kim Stanley Robinson [Red Mars, 1993]
