You may have heard me say it before: stop nationalism, and you stop wars. This is the post in which I try and go a bit further into that idea.
I’m assuming that if you can put a complete stop to nationalism, war rates will inevitably lower, because people no longer have a strong, large group to identify with. But eh, this still leaves separation between people, right? They still belong in a country, and that automatically gives a feeling of nationalism and unification with just one group.
What if we were to unify most/all nations? I know, this seems pretty damn impossible, but if we can put aside cultural differences, maybe we could agree on terms that are beneficial for all parties involved? We could share resources way more easily, for example. Now I’m not saying any of the current leaders would be willing to just share like that, but it’s an idea, right?
It just all seems so stupid, the way we’re separated and sometimes try to conquer each other’s territories. The world was given to us as a species (metaphorically speaking?), so shouldn’t we all be nice and share it equally with each other? Just because a ton of years back some asshole said “this piece of land is mine” doesn’t mean it really was his, or that it really belongs to the US right now.
Looking back there’s a lot of flaws in my logic, but I honestly can’t be bothered rewriting and adding to this all right now.
Opinions on this would be nice, if you’re willing to share. (in before communism hurr durr)
