In a country with the population of the US, don't you find the idea that there is only one burglary every 20 seconds incredibly heartening? The chances of it happening in a given household, at those rates, are pretty tiny.
I suppose my point was that every 20 seconds *sounds* awful, but the seriousness of the situation is entirely dependant on sample size. So if this was one house, and it was burgled every 20 seconds, that would denote an entirely lawless or anarchic society. If the sample was a single city, things would presumably be a pretty bad city to live in.
But if there was one burglary every 20 seconds in a pan galactic civilisation spanning tens of thousands of worlds, we would be describing a virtual utopia (at least with regards to breaking and entering). Therefore although the thought of a burglary every 20 seconds is emotive and unpleasant, it is meaningless in isolation. It might be (relatively) good or bad news about a society, depending.
And to expect a society without any burglary seems a herculean act of optimism, regardless of one's religious beliefs or expectations of human behaviour. Personally I think the number of burglaries that take place in a society reflects more on the society than the individual, but I'm guessing you would demur at this!
