Government is elected. Government at least pretend to have citizens interest as priority. Government have no stakeholders. I don’t believe that he real selling corporate new order publicly like that.

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.

Yemen, Syria, and Libya were all the result of the US intervention, and Zomia is stateless to this day

I’m from Yemen & that didn’t happen it was a uprising in 2011 then another civil war 2015 & ended with endless war between powers from in and out the country to control it. I will read about Zomia I lack knowledge about it.

You're right, the Saudi led coalition (which was backed by the US) intervening during the civil war is what led to the country being in the state it is today, but again that's not a critique of stateless societies just examples of the evils of governments
