Yes, we are part of a global economic system... and have been for several decades.

No, the concept of nations and states is not obsolete. The concept of global government is the opposite of what we need.

Imagine being governed by the UN ?

You could still have those things. People who live within a jurisdiction can provide a system to provide those public necessities.

Guys, this has nothing to do with one world government. lol


You guys have to note that the concept of nations is new. In fact, men have been living on earth for millions of years without any boundaries.

High population states like California and New York are far more of a police state then states like Nebraska or South Dakota so it is nice to have states to move to with more freedom in times like this.
