We spend ages bitching, and getting stressed at the state of the economy in our countries, the lack of jobs, the lack of safety, the lack of care for the poorer people, the politicians getting fat and rich whilst we worry about where the next meal will come from, or panic at how we are going to pay for the next bill. Well the settlers left their countries and came to america, so why don't we all get together and go some where else and set up our own country? We could purchase an uninhabited island and start again. Let me know what your views are?
OK; so to start a new country today without leaving the planet, we have to turn to the high seas outside of any international boundary. In essence, a group would have to come up with the finances to build a floating island in the mid Pacific or Atlantic. It would have to be moored to an underwater mount to prevent drift into any sovereign territorial waters and the risk of being taken over. There are ideas out there concerning this, particularly by the Venus Project, which by the way, I do not support.
If enough people get together and build this floating island, it could then declare itself a sovereign and independent state, draft its own constitution, elect its own government if so choosing, create its own currency, grow its own food supply on the island in vertical farms, farm fish, desalinate water and provide its own power by a number of ways. We have the technology right now to do this. All that is needed is the resolve.
But the state of the world right now is one of power, conquest and imperialist adventurism and expansion, so another consideration might have to be some form of self defense. These are some of the solutions and some of the problems.
Starting a new country isn't all it is cracked up to be. Take the United States. They may have gained independance, but they have never had a leader who can carry off a hat in the same way as our queen. I could never trust a head of state who was a stranger to millinery.
I can carry off a hat Muldania. And I've had my colours done at Debenhams, so I know what is flattering. Calpol, Hollie is indeed a revolutionary, and like most revolutionaries, will wear a hat, even a lavender one.
I am a sixth generation, Canadian Born Canadian, which means that my (great great great grandfather) migrated here from Ireland along time ago. And just incase someone might think me intollerant of other nationalities...
I am a Male, Canadian born, English speaking, Anglo-saxon, Caucasian, Christian, Senior citizen,who today in a multi-cultural metropolitian society has become a visible minority in my own country. How is it possible...
Is Mexico incapable of correcting the corruption and it's own social issues. Is it time to seriously consider Mexico a true security issue in this hemisphere and take over what they obviously can't handle?
