If anybody wants some positive news, here it is. Trump and his billionaire cabinet will dismantle the nation-state thereby preventing the next Trump from having much influence. The really funny thing is that his supporters voted for him because they thought he’d strengthen the nation-state, and he’ll do the exact opposite.
The thing to remember is that fabulously wealthy people are by nature opposed to the nation-state at this point in time. To them, it’s nothing but an onerous restriction on the freedom of their money. There’s no benefit it can give them since the manufacturing model of capitalism withered and died back in the 1970s. Since then, capital has done nothing but try to liquefy borders and national institutions. The time to deliver the final blow to the nation-state has come.
