    1. We learned that unless there's an *individual* incentive for collusion (as opposed to a less-motivating group incentive), it's not a stable equilibrium and therefore doesn't stand a chance of working. In other words, people are self-absorbed jerkfaces that don't give a crap about anyone else (or at least, teenagers baited with candy are!)
