political ideas

borders are down

“I see a whole generation/ freefalling toward a borderless future/ incredible mixtures beyond science fiction cholo punks, irish concheros, high tech mariarchies, indian rockers and anglosandanistas. i see them all wandering around a continent with no name…” Guillermo Gomez-Pena [1]

city states

"As cities grow, they obey certain rules. Urban, social and economic phenomena become more intensive with city size. And most importantly, as West and his colleague Luis Bettencourt have argued, cities are social reactors. The more people who live in one place, the easier it is to facilitate human interactions, the exchange of ideas and creative collaborations."... brexit and the rise of the city [2]

Taking the long view, nation-states are a recent invention in human history. To summarize the bulk of an undergraduate politics module in a sentence or two, nation-states as we know them were directly preceded by kingdoms and empires that spanned large geographic territories and encompassed various cultural and ethnic groups who, while recognizing themselves as subjects of the empire, did not share a sense of collective identity. With the nation-state came formal borders, centralized administration, a unified economy, and in cultural terms a sense of “nationhood.” The idea — albeit contested, even today — was that the citizens of the state constituted one people...[3]

environment ideas

mining asteroids for minerals

Near-Earth asteroids are much closer energetically to Earth, than even our own moon, making them the perfect targets for our asteroid prospecting and minings missions. Asteroids are primordial material left over from the formation of the Solar System. They are scattered throughout it: some pass close to the Sun, and others are found out beyond the orbit of Neptune. A vast majority have been collected by Jupiter’s gravity into a belt between it and Mars – an area known as the Main Belt. As it turns out, astronomers have been discovering thousands of asteroids that do not belong to the Main Belt, but instead pass near Earth’s orbit – more than 11,000 to date, with over a thousand more discovered every year.
