Regional Organization of the World.

It’s a hell of a thing, travelling the world with a dream. And wow, I travelled with a great dream. A dream that felt real and present, like a companion, or a memory but from the future. The Great Dream that the human race will find a way of organizing itself into a more cooperative whole, an enduring structure that will lessen the twin sorrows of war and poverty. From roaming tribes we’ve grown into complex cities and industrious nations. The question is where does this tendency toward complexity lead? What is the next level of human organization? And further out: what does the final design of humanity look like? In the following chapters, I’d like to share with you the answers that I found on my little mission across our planet, intermixed with a variety of entertaining drinking stories.page-start
