I feel as though Africa's borders are underrrated Historian 16/12/01(Thu)02:00 No. 14956

Yeah some shit exist like the DRC, but I've grown to appreciate the shape of nations like Chad or Tanzania.

Anyone else with me? Or just hate for Africa's modern borders all around?

I think so. What is it that bothers you about them? It might bother me too, i just don't know.

Modern african politics is really interesting to be honest, the different countries forming coming out of the colonial era, different dictators and governmental styles coming and going etc

If it were up to most Africans, I'd wager they'd rather live in a city-state sort of deal.

If it were up to many United States Citizens, I think the same is true.

Historian 17/01/18(Wed)01:30 No. 14966

City-state as an actual contemporary urban environment, or more as a smaller polity?

Historian 17/02/26(Sun)19:47 No. 14976

I'm beginning to wonder if it wouldn't be better for a lot of people around the world to live in city-state type environments at the rate things are going

Historian 17/03/04(Sat)01:34 No. 14978

Theoretically, city-state type environments might not be too bad if they weren't designed to be exclusively urban, and if free movement between locations was a fundamental right.

Historian 17/03/12(Sun)13:54 No. 14979

>free movement
So in other words if they weren't actually city states.

How about a bunch of city states bond together to form states? Then those states can unite into a common country.

But I doubt that would suit the tenets of your quasi-religion, no matter how much goddamn sense it makes.

Historian 17/03/19(Sun)04:40 No. 14982

when is preferring freedom of travel promoting a quasi-religion?

Because when you have freedom of travel between city states then you don't actually have city states. Citizens aren't members of the individual city state but the region they're in, which is semantically little different from the world you're living in right now.

Then I'll take smaller polities without the constraints of statism, or travel restrictions.
