On National Sovereignty

"National Sovereignty" as we've enjoyed it is impossible now.
Unfortunately, modern information technology and media, which have already annihilated individual liberty and dignity, and their derivatives, privacy and good judgment, have made national borders a mere formality. Likewise all traditional hierarchical structures. Authority once again derives from sheer power, not merit, tradition or elected representation.
This combination and its proven ability to control masses at a time when nothing else will portends (indeed, spawns) global government devoid of any values beneficial to mankind that is as inevitable as it will be disastrous. It is happening right before our eyes.
See McLuhan.
