As the Globalist empire in America goes into its death throes, Joe Jarvis at the Daily Bell is developing strategies to survive this ephocal storm.
Many believe that China has been set up to take its place as the dominant superpower but Jarvis believes that what we will more likely see is the death of ALL nation states, while humanity transitions out of the Industrial Age and into the Information Age.
Jarvis predicts the rise of “virtual governments”, with whom consumers can contract for their services and which behave more like insurance companies; “distributed governments which do not require their citizens to all be located in the same geographic area, and so much more innovation in how societies will be governed…”
Moreover, he says, “Smaller countries and city-states are actually better positioned than nation states to take advantage of this – without the need for massive military and government spending, they can offer government services as a product, based on the actual cost.
“There are already a number of signs of the transition to government as a service provider, such as Caribbean nations selling citizenship through investment, Estonia selling e-citizenship, places like the countries of Georgia, Panama, Portugal and so many others offering competitive tax rates to attract residents and business…
“And competition among a hopefully growing number of countries will make it so that no government can charge more than a market rate for their services.
“No more paying 50% of your income to receive some basic subpar services – the price will be based on product, with plenty of jurisdictions offering a la carte government services.
“New models of governance will mean government is no longer characterized by involuntary monopolization on land and force.”
Is this the Anarcho-Capitalist answer to Klaus Schwab’s “You will have nothing [no country] and you will be happy”?
I’m not sure that I agree with everything this young man says, but he has a lot of interesting projections that, as with Anarcho-Capitalism, overall would make sense in an ideal world, where humans were less treacherous.
He acknowledges this when he says, “We have to at the same time make sure we do not become targets of the dying nation state’s wrath, without letting its rules hold us back from participating in the dawning of a new age.”
