More on the Death of the Nation State

I only mention these few examples of the limits
of the state as a prelude to my general claim.
It's my view that the gulf between accumulated
power and effective power is going to grow ever
wider in the coming years, to the point where the
nation state itself will grow effectively weaker,
more anachronistic, and finally irrelevant to the
course of social development.

See why Lew says so.
