Yeah, sorry, I didn't see this reply initially (sorry blind). I don't want to go on too much more, so I'll say that I can see why it might be the case that people need leaders and nations provide a firm basis for creating leaders, but I think that other systems might do it better. National leaders will follow the national interest and this will harm the interests of others. What I want is leadership which deals with individuals and with all rational beings. No ignoring the plight of Africa because they are poor, no hatred of the French because history tells us to and no "My country right or wrong". I t is hard to see some times that most of what we have is of our own human weaknesses i. e nations. Do we have to have them? No if we as people were perfect then no. We are not perfect so we need cumbersome things like the government and nations. view post
