Part One | Nations and Cultures

Nations and Peoples
Part One | The World's Nations and Peoples
We live in times when globalisation is penetrating every corner of the world - even during times of relative de-globalisation.

Some aspects of this, people welcome: travel, exotic ideas, foods and products, and relative freedom from the stiffened clamps of tradition and established ways.

Some aspects are regrettable: standardisation, imposition of Northern ways on the Global South (called 'development'), loss of cultures, debt accumulation, languages and local characteristics... and bulldozers, weapons and pollution, everywhere.

Sometimes one wonders whether the world is becoming unfit for human habitation.
That's Earth


This first section looks into the question of nations, the basis by which human life has thus far been organised.

What do nations do for us?
How much are they necessary?
What would we lose if we didn't have nations?
What are the alternatives?
