The Art of the State
No, not government owned sculpture & statues.
Once contact with ET becomes 'fact-of-life', like accepting the world is round and not flat, people will identify themselves more as Earthlings, rather than their own nationality.
@Stephen the way I read it does sound like ets are past using borders.
What if my world is flat, our universe, the milky way... The Earth is round. What if every human should enjoy equal rights, not just every citizen of a country...
@tv it sounds great but the challenge is balancing the needs of everyone and trying to keep things fair and free of fraudulent behavior of any would be trouble makers.
@ TV: For every human to enjoy equal rights means somebody has to tolerate something they dislike. For example, the USA is loaded with people who love to exercise free speech & press rights and get rich doing it (e.g. Jack Dorsey & Mark Zuckerberg) but deny to others what they utilize. (President Trump). Equal rights for everybody are opposed by influential, powerful people.
@Patrick: I did not write "Equal rights". I wrote "Equal opportunity" and "Human rights", meaning basic human rights...
As far as I see it, a concept of "Equal rights" does not exist in 3D. If Mr. Zuck has a company which he controls, he can legally cut DJT off, as long as he treats others the same way. Who is to control and enforce that, most likely nobody.
My mental lapse, sorry. I now see that I wrote above "equal rights" when I thought and meant "human rights"...
@Patrick no doubt it wouldn't be easy but I guess the alternative is to maintain the status quo though it sounds like this shift is going to flush the status quo down the toilet.
I can already hear the water gurgling down the drainpipe.
Interesting side note Status Quo ( the band) had a song Down the dustpipe 😁
Across the pond, Boris Johnson seems utterly determined to introduce domestic vaccine passports, without which you will be unable to enter a bar, sport stadium, cinema, supermarket etc. This is very sinister and Draconian. Will be interesting to see if the people allow this to transpire.

Folks will largely comply, sayeth The Committee.
@Patrick after a few yrs have gone by and nobody is really worrying about covid these passports will probably go away won't they because they seem rather asinine and foolish since these vaccines are supposedly going to be giving us protection.
Proof of vaccination of visitors will be required by national governments for admission into the country, in order to prevent infection by foreigners. That's understandable.
Egypt asks a refund of one billion $ to the company that own the cargo responsible of the recent blockage of Suez channel.

This will not be a large enough insurance claim to affect anything except Evergreen. Costs to free a grounded ship then repair it are covered, but in excess of 1% of hull value.
If borders become irrelevant, is there value in secession or is a borderless wold so far out it won’t matter?
