Replace existing nation-states with ones based upon watershed boundaries
I like the idea, but too many questions come to mind. 1.Cost readjustment of administrative and political boundaries and government, 2. How to choose who runs what over such vast regions and also ensuring that all get their fair share.I'm African there is corruption to consider as well. 3. Disparities in culture and religious faiths that have come in because of the political boundaries imposed on everyone by the colonial masters, 4.Ethnic integrity, where would the traditional rulers of Africa fit in,how about their land and jurisdiction. 5.Migration,some parts of these regions will always be more attractive than others well you know the whole process. 6.Education You don't really have to answer all these questions, there is always a solution. But how do you expect people to even consider this marvel idea?

Religion in third world development.
When i speak of development I want to narrow it down to Zambian solutions for Zambian problems.Religious organisations have everybody under their roofs from civil servants to politicians,from street vendors to engineers,teachers to nurses, all under one roof "The Church", I guess they should be worried about heaven rather this "stop over" country of ours. The problem with The Church is that nobody is the leader, I guess it makes sense the power the catholic church held in Europe, everybody had to listen otherwise blah blah.But here we are in a country where the vast majority of people (me included) are extreme financial handicaps and a mighty large proportion of this population has to look to the church for solace, and on any given Sunday, and at least a million of us will go and put USD $1 and pray for a better life(That's a lot of money down here). My conclusion: They simply don't care. They know they have the keys to unlock most of the unenlightened minds and yet this has been the status for I have no idea how long but I'm guessing too long I agree with those that say religion is what has made development so slow because it will always fragment the people further and further because of constantly diverging beliefs and convictions.Whereas if they all said "God said that the way you lead your nations is the very bench mark used to which part of heaven or hell you get." and make it as believable as the rest of the bible, we'll have a nicer world for it. I want them to come together not to hold seminars on what is wrong but to create solutions,lobby for them wherever, probably have a nice policy in place all the while preconditioning the minds masses that for a new focus a new need, a new nation and a new life and an easier path to heaven for those heading that way....Something like that. And thank you all for your contributions, they are very enlightening.
