Governments as antiquated organisations
If we look at governments their frontiers and laws are usually generated by historical reasons. the fundamental functions of a government are to distribute wealth from the rich to the poor, to provide an assurance against situations when you need lot of money or cant earn it anymore (childs, unemployment, old age, invalidity), to offer services to the community which arent useful immediately but in the future or which have a more basic need than wealth (education, care of elderly). this are all really useful functions, but with some problems which arise from different factors:
- population pyramid: this leads to the fact that more and more services are being privatized (invalidity insurance, private pension funds ...)
- nationality: this old historical grown concept of nations leads to the fact that i have to pay for debts cumulated by other people and represented by goverments i only share one thing: that i accidentely was born in the same region. fortunately, with globalisation, this can be compensated. well- educated people who dont find jobs anymore in their country simply change country. this migration of brains in crisis and immigration when its being cheap again for companies to start a business or subsidized by governments leads to fluctuating growth and contration of economical power of regions.
So we have governments with totally random, historical grown borders which social functions are privatized due to the population pyramid and which national character is undermined by globalisation and free movement of goods and manpower. why do we still need this national goverments which differing interests, in the best case lead to a massive overhead in bureaucracy for which we all pay, and in the worst case to war. why do we still have this dinosaur organisations where money is borrowed by banks. with interest, compound interest and his exponential character, exponentially growing debt and national bankruptcies are logical.
