GeekSpeak – The Future of National Borders Join the discussion March 25th at 12pm slt

How will the lines and colours of the world map change in the next 100 years?  Will Europe still exist?  If it falls apart will there be more European nations than before?   Will England, Scotland and Wales separate?  Will Catalonia leave Spain?  Will China fall apart?  Will California split from the USA?

Or will all borders disappear in the next century?  If that happens will it be because great empires become established?  Or because we will all want to join hands and sing together?

In 1977 President Carter sent a message into space that said “We human beings are still divided into nation states, but these states are rapidly becoming a single global civilization.”  Is that still true?  Was it true then?  Was President Carter insane?

100 years is a long time.  Come and tell us what you think will happen in that time.  And what you hope will happen.
