Do you think all countries will cease to exist?

As a result of rapid globalization and multiculturalism, do you think that all countries will cease to exist?

Spoiler:
After a World War III, I personally think that the United Nations will cause a type of New World Order. All of the world's countries would be able come together and bring about a better world.

Countries change, borders change and names change. The USA didn't always exist, the US took a piece of Mexico and expanded its border during its was with Mexico. African countries are mainly a result of Europeans dividing land among themselves and Norway used to be a group of chiefdom until united into one kingdom.

It's kinda ridiculous to think one's country will remain the same or even exist at all After thousand years or more.

Because of "globalization and multiculturalism"? No... Countries and cultures are not the same. Cultures could be affected by just becoming a mish mash if people don't take pride in their own family heritage and preserve the parts that are important to them.

Countries will only cease to exist when they fail sooner or later. None can last forever. But others will eventually rebuild their own. (Unless, of course, the cause was apocalyptic.) Diversity is not going to make them fail.

Who cares? Even if it does happen, most of us will probably be dead by then and I can only see it happening in the event of a huge natural disaster or something like that.

Borders will always exist. Physical and metal. If anything WWIII would create more countries not less. There is always talk in the USA of certain states becoming a country.

I might not share the same views as mrmaczaps but some people really need to quit picking on him everytime he states his views.

No need for any of this. Sharing views, dissecting views, defending views.

It's like you people forget this is a ninja turtles forum sometimes.

Eh, the guy's an insufferable dick and legitimately crazy. That's the sole reason I'm breaking his balls. I have no problem with religious people, 90 percent of my family is.

There is a difference between devotion to faith and zealotry. Some people just like to straddle the line....
