The End of the Nation-State?

The End of the Nation-State? | Building our Future | Scoop.it
With rapid urbanization under way, cities want to call their own shots. Increasingly, they can.

Dovid's insight:

Citizens of the world, worldwide currencies and descentralized power being transformed! Far behind will linger the memory of old nationalism and patriotism. Communities will take over what's rightfully theirs and will make decisions for everybody's benefit!

The end of Soverign nation states has alot to do with how interact with other states into a more integrated regional economy. The global community is realizing its importance of woking together to mazimize on trade and technology building as an economic world effort. This would blur the lines of independent soverign countires and bring regions together for economic puprposes even redrawing regional lines. Cities want more autonomy on responding to urbanization and move more away from being identified as a nation state. It is the desire to listen less to what washington has to say and act more as an independent state which makes more decisons with the regions around it to mazimize on rapid city growth and the money making opportunities that a re created from a rapidly changing global community.

Just end reading a book: the end of the nation state, but than in mind a non-democratic eu government.

Parag Khanna maps the future of countries

Dovid's insight:

Move on from border conflicts by using infrastructure that allows for the economic independence of every region.

This TED talk focuses on political geography, specifically, borders of the past and the present.  Parag Khanna proves that borders matter because they explain conflicts between spaces that made these spaces sovereign nation-states and countries.  Borders explain who was in power at certain times in history and what resources and materials were sought after at that particular time.  With 200 countries represented on a political map today, the borders separating all of these countries were formed for particular reasons.
