No social support system or market regulation,
Above us only the ruthless exploitation of global corporations.
Nation states are pretty awful, but we don't seem have anything to replace them with yet and the rule of law is pretty useful most of the time.

Left anarchists have their heads in the clouds. The heads of right anarchists are somewhere else entirely.
But in the actual anarchistic societies, while they're not complete utopias; warlords, gangs and corporations don't seem to take over. It's more often totalitarian states that destroy them: the fascists with 1930s Catalonia, the Leninists in 1920s Ukraine.--It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

When I was at Mega Corp, I remember throwing the idea at our team leader - who was Slovak. He was able to go quite a way back in history on what did or didn't constitute Slovakia other the years. Even nations like Italy and Spain are fairly recent inventions.
I realise this is a bit tangential to the argument over whether nation states are a good thing. Personally, I think you have to have some sort of democratic control which is superior to business interests. This is what makes Investor-State Dispute Settlement type agreements feel so dodgy to a lot of people.You can't inspire people with facts- Small Gods
I mean, who's going to cover all the Polish papers pushing "Poland for the Polish!" bullshit?
