MY BIGGEST TAKEAWAY WAS THIS…..
The way @elonmusk phrased this statement has got me seriously thinking… especially what’s been happening around the world recently.
Government and it’s monopoly on Violence… damnnn
Ancient countries nothing I’m interested in. Failed states after uprising that destabilize the government & overthrow them. at least it’s a recent events we can discuss, not some poorly documented & exaggerated stories from history books.
I agree that an emergent loosely organized, stable society is pretty different from a country in flux shortly after a revolution with warlords de facto in charge. Your examples aren’t that relevant to a discussion about governments in general.
