So taking these to longish thought experiments leads to a conclusion I shied away from which is basically this, globalism is going to fragment. We’re going to be squabbling with smaller sets of ourselves and there aren’t going to be constructive unifying theories and concepts that will unite our societies and polities. It’s going to have to stay broken that way for a long time, until such time that the amount of information needed to create, sustain and defend sovereignty can be worked out for entities smaller than nation-states as we know them. Either that, or we face complications in law and policy that supremely frustrate ambition and liberty. Federations suck.
I look most expectantly as the Republic of Texas as something of a model going forward for the right sized sovereign. California is a fair sized model too, I just don’t like the way it operates. My work is going to keep me focused on the West & Mountain States, so I’ll learn something from that as well.
