Are national capitals becoming obsolete?
Given that the vast majority of the world's population live in urban areas, is the concept of having a single city as a nation's capital obsolete? Could a country not have multiple "capital cities" or is it still necessary to have national power centralized in one city? Plus with technology allowing us to stay connected over such large distances 24 hours a day 7 days a week, can a de-centralized nation be as effective in governing itself as compared to a centralized government?
