Synopsis of LaMBs
The Inhabitants of a harsh deserts planet called Cerra have perfected a system of imprisonment without walls. Called "Lamination", this system of virtual slavery ensures that those convivted of serious crimes remain productive, if not free, members of society. Prisoners are hence called LaMBs.
The system has made both jails and the death penalty unnecessary in a world where human ingenuity, creativity and labor continue to be precious commodities that cannot be replaced by robots or any form of "artificial" intelligence. This system has sparked off philosophical debate among the citizens of Cerra on whether lamination is ethical.
