Reverting to city states wont work for 1 reasons: population.
Too large cities.
Anyway, classic city states were huge, they had a catchment area, so getting stuff not a problem.
City states is 1 idea.
I feel we need a purge.
Get rid of 90%. But thats just my idea.
IMO yes, but! What's your definition? And then what is NASA and the Russian and Chinese equivalents saying? plus or minus some years/decades.
When are we going to be a space race?
IMO yes, but! Same as above.
Are we going travel far and wide in space?
[...] i think that although no one can be planned, it is 2 things that can be blamed:
1. Faulty brain sofware. Inability to think ex extremes.
I think most os these people are lost.
They are of no merit.
They cannot be reformed.
They are stuck in their idioticity.
2. History has showned that idiots can rule over and kill, anihlate a far superior "race" by their sheer stupidity.
This is worrisome, and an obstacle to gradual change.
It is my feeling that the neaderthal gene is responsible for the top 3-5 %, whereas another 3-5% pure huamnoid adapted to systems thinking.
The rest is slack, garbage, free loaders.
This shows, that graduality will not work.
No one will start the purge.
I personally hope you are right,
However i also in passing wait for the comet or next cataclysm.

I dont undestand how creating more states is a answer to wether we need countries at all...?
You write that more states more war, so in essence you are saying we need less or no states?
