Imagine That There Is No Country
There Is Only One ...
What used to be the outer World is becoming our Country.
We are the children of the first wave of globalization.
We love the place where we grew up as much as the one where we now live.
We are starting to call Earth home ... Earth Our Country
Borders are vanishing, and the Planet now turns into our finite geographic, economic and cultural setting. The economy is already global, so is the Internet.
However, our fragmented political models are lagging far behind. Our historic legacy of fully sovereign countries prevents us from reaching global coherence.
We need unification.
To build a sustainable society, we miss a political system that can pool and leverage our resources and build a vision for Mankind.
We must execute global solutions to resolve global problems.
The anarchy of our independent countries ruling everything on Earth leaves us all without a pilot.
We believe that our generation is living through another revolution.
When the hunter-gatherers discovered agriculture, they made the Neolithic revolution, and became the Homo Sapiens Sapiens, giving birth to 10,000 years of history. The discovery of the magic seed has enabled sedentism, civilizations, and technologies of domestication which culminate with our undisputed conquest and domination of the Planet.
We are the first generation to discover the impact of our victory on the ecosystem.
At the same time, we - citizens of the nations - are starting to realize that we are all the same people as we travel, migrate, communicate and work together across the globe.
We are becoming the first Homo Sapiens Universalis. We are making the second revolution of Mankind: the Global revolution.
We have the chance of being the first generation of these new people. We are opening to "posthistory", a new chapter in Mankind's evolution.
The barrier we now all face is political. We remain totally fragmented and disjointed.
If we are now global at least economically and connected through the Internet, all the laws are local and borders still rule everything else.
Our nations can take us backwards. They can prevent us from unifying. They can prevent the resolution of our ecologic Great Wall.
We have a solution.
We propose to build together The United Democratic States.
Our World is now circular and finite, but our horizon is the one of our dreams.
Earth is our Country.
Come and join the journey.
