No country, as of today exist, on any other ground other than:
-Being accepted as a country by the big boys. (i.e. already existing countries).
-Just because its military might is too great, so nobody wants to fight its existence...
What if a tools/ways existed that all people on this planet can vote on:
-The constitution of the planet;
I think people are too divided in their views (at least for now) to come to a consensus on a single constitution to rule over all people of the planet. Maybe the global constitution would be: hey let's all be good
to our fellow citizens
. But now you have disagreement on what it means to be good
and which human beings meet the definition of a citizen
. At the end, it all leads back to which entities control the power to enforce the rules. So we likely end up with something like what we have today with different-minded people separated by geographic location, having their own particular ways of organizing themselves and their resources, and defending their way of life from the others
using hard and soft power.
Blockchain technology is great, but it is not a panacea for all the problems of the world. Ultimately, the solution requires humans improving themselves and their state of mind over time. However, I do think that the fast, easy, and free exchange of ideas over the internet does help humans reach a better understanding of each other, which then allows us to come together and be more effective as a united group than we ever could be while divided and isolated. And certainly consensus tools can help people accurately verify other people's views in a more precise manner than trying to absorb the consensus through natural language on message boards and forums (which is what really excites me about BitShares Vote).
