Civilisations, culture, and the cloud: Will we still need nations on Mars?
Saying that the nation-state is dying is a lofty, hard-to-imagine statement. But wondering what the structure of human society will look like in a completely new setting millions of kilometres away, with limited resources and a need for a new hierarchy? Suddenly, you start thinking about the evolution of social structure in a whole new light. This talk isn’t about making futuristic deductions about Mars, it’s about looking at the anatomy of civilisation, the lowest common denominator of ethics, law, and governance, and what that tells us about the future of humanity.
