Do we really need countries any more?


People are constantly moaning about the state of the country they live in and the government, believing that the party they support could do a much better job than the one currently doing it.

Then there’s an election and the government is replaced and they’re usually just as shit as the one previously but their supporters are happy because they got the government they voted for.

On top of that, countries often have massive debts and continue to accrue even more debts.

Now, if this country was run by one or more corporations, would this be better for the country? Would they allow themselves to run at a constant loss when faced with the ire of shareholders?

Would they enter into costly wars? Would they even need to enter into wars? Would we – finally – get to see a real robocop on our streets?

Who knows, but wouldn’t it be fun writing about a world that was like this? That’s right, this isn’t about me being all political, it’s about me planting a brain seed.

Have fun writing!
