Our current system no longer caters to 19th and 20th century concepts of nations and states. We are part of a global economic system now.


Do you agree?

No I don't, people still have unique cultures, languages and traditions around the world and they are very proud of them. I don't see people abandoning their desire to practice they culture, language, traditions and historical legacies by giving up their sovereignty.

I do not agree. Maybe business is but not our personal lives and the rules under which we live.

I agree that it is becoming a global economy and that political boundaries are becoming less influential. But, at the same time, these concepts of nations and states still have great meaning to the people who reside in them.

There will always be boundaries, but not always meaningful or productive ones.

One world order?
That's a centrally planned nightmare I don't want to be part of.

But do states define cultures? No

States and nations with borders having their own laws. Geez, what an outdated concept. We need a George Soros 'one world order' system with open borders, communists, socialists, 'the workers' in charge of everything. Throw in a little sharia law. That would fix all our problems, I'm sure.

Why stop there.. why dont we abolish counties, cities, municipalities.. I mean hey.. we're a global economy now.. We could have national trash service, national water service, federal police everywhere with the army as a backup instead of local and state police. Is this something you really want?
