The Ethnic Nation State Is The Most Likely Means Of Preserving Individual Freedom.

Great panel discussion today, with speakers on China, Turkey, Islam, Europe, and the Anglosphere.

The closing questions were largely to do with the changing world boundaries, and nationalism.

Summary by, I think, John O’Sullivan, was that, it certainly appears, that the small ethnic nation state is the most likely means of preserving individual freedom.

And the consensus was that neither China nor the USA had strong chances of maintaining political unity over the long term.

That is, the USA only has such chances if we return to federalism, devolving power to the states, rather than central authority.

We can only hope.
