Snow Crash is an interesting novel in its approach to covering numerous themes. One such them is corruption. While the federal government is virtually non-existent, numerous private corporations have taken over control to form city states. The world presented in Snow Crash is essentially an extreme version of capitalism. Now, because the government cannot regulate these private industries, the amount of corruption is obscene. For instance, the private police force known as the Enforcers stated that they weren’t interested in bringing perpetrators to justice, they were merely being paid to keep order. This is seen when Hiro is chasing after Raven. The Enforcer was actually chasing down the Crip that was in pursuit of Raven because despite Raven being a criminal, the Enforcer’s apparently have a strict no-involvement policy when it comes to interacting with Raven, the stories antagonist. This recurring theme is seen again when Y.T. makes a delivery to a church’s minister. This minister that is supposedly an ethical leader was delivered a package containing drugs that were essentially cocaine. This is an example of a leader taking advantage of the power that they have.
