    I support the establishment of a techno-communistic one world government with a democratic foundation.

    The idea of sovereign nation states is outmoded: issues such as terrorism, poverty, global warming do not care about your artificially constructed boundaries.
    Yet Western nation states have the lowest amounts of poverty and terrorism, such horror. :rolleyes:

    Yes and that is good. It is one step closer to my ideal system. It would have to build from organisations like UN, NATO, etc.

    But if that was intended to be a sly criticism of communism I am sorry to inform you there are no Communist countries in the world, only ones which say they are.

    North Korea is a monarchy; China is capitalist with some social restrictions; countries like Cuba are failed socialist nations.

    It was nothing of the sort. I don't understand the hate the far-left gives to nation states given the nation state's sold track record of sheltering the most vulnerable from exploitation.

    I consider China to be a great country personally, bad for the poor, but so is America, India, Russia and so on.

    I apologize for misinterpreting your comment. I think nation states have done very well to get us to our current society but I also think if we want to prevent global warming, colonize Mars or any other big projects we need fewer, larger countries, if not one world government.

    Dress it up how you how you want, but accept your globalist leanings.

    I'm not so sure that's always true and it implies you believe that all cultures are equal. I don't consider most of the Arab World capable of self governance for example.
    I believe that for all its faults western liberal culture is superior to other, traditionalist ones notably Islamic.

    Certainly much of the Middle East at the moment is a choice between secular authoritarianism or theocracy at the moment but I am hopeful. Although slow, there does appear to be a level of progress particularly amongst the affluent middle classes in Iran and Saufi Arabia.

    The level of influence from lobbyists largely depends on how powerful the state is in combating corruption.
    Yes but I would say that the threat is growing and at risk with economic fallout. Even in Scandinavian countries lobbying is reaching greater prominence. My point wasn't really about corruption but more about how borders would not be much of an issue )indeed might help mask) a supposed NWO elite implementing a particular agenda.

    States do not do anything! They rely on people for agency! Gah!
