we already do that on a larger scale. is war somehow justifiable becuase it's bigger?
modi: a confederation of sorts would allow larger projects to be accomplished; multiple "villages"(I was thinking more along the lines of county to multiple county sized states) can still work togethor. That is adding more government but I think free trade and passage should exist on a larger scale. You don't have similar political views to work together; one of Bush Senoir's campaign advisers is married to one of Bill Clinton's campaign advisers(forgot their names, "Raggin' Cajun" I think he was nick named).
O and modi I've never read that book but the whole shaping peoples ideas things is a bit strange...parents do a fine job of brainwashing kids already
a confederation could also stop petty wars between states and allow for a unified national guard for defense from invasion. that's approaching the upper limits of what I feel a federal government should do however.
