Ah well you see that small difference causes all the difference in your question and yes I'm pretty sure there is a general rule to be grammatically
I suppose the conclusion is uncertain, but I think there is one thing that can be practically guaranteed and that is that it will not be good for the
majority of us.
I'm not necessarily asking which system is better as I am asking what system(s) you see a viable replacements of the nation based system. The time
that the old system of nations be less dominant than the new system of corporations may already be here. Look at the power of influence had by the
corporations on domestic and foreign policies.

what is the American currency based off of? Not gold, but trust.

I'm going to bring back a point ignored I made:
In fact, I'd like to present an argument. Man first began as a creature living in anarchy under the law of the jungle, but as man progressed from
violent anarchy to autocracies to the current semi-democratic systems (if that truly) then could the next step be true democracies with open knowledge
such as Project Venus would suggest? And assuming that is the next step, could it be assumed that man after that period of true democracy, peace and
upbringing in culture and knowledge could live in the greatest freedom of peaceful anarchy? To me that is a logical progression, though man is clearly
an irrational being. And that irrationality is presented by greed and corporation's power.
