More on the folly of nationalism

I think I need to flag this Evolve Politics up. It is spot on, echoing what I've been thinking for quite some time. In it, Mark Turley argues that humanity needs to get beyond the idea of the nation-state. We now face certain problems which can only be addressed if we leave aside our petty differences and come together. ''When you actually break things down, the notion of 'Nationalism' really is incredibly stupid.'' I could hardly agree more. While he rightly states that organisations like the EU have their faults, and problems such as finding a way to maintain democracy in such a United Earth would need to be resolved, transnational cooperation must surely be better than continuing to squabble as nation-states.
