Cartesian backdrop

Sure, if we could be confident that every human being understands Cartesian thinking, then I'd be cool with a stateless society. I'd also be out of a job, though, as I am currently a mapmaker.

It's important to understand why lines of demarcation ever amounted to possession--albeit there is no land unclaimed on Earth, a world without boundaries would lead to a quicker destruction of natural resources and peace.
