Does anyone else agree that the world would be more peaceful without countries? These unnecessary boundaries that not only define us, but confine us. They create an identity for us - one that defines us, shapes our experiences, limits our dreams, makes us love our "brothers" and hate complete strangers, simply because of the country we and they belong to. Without countries, it wouldn't be us vs them, it would be us vs us. And people are less likely to hurt each other if they know and really believe we all bleed the same. If there were no countries, we would truly see each other as humans. The whole world would be a different place. My entire life would have been different, if I was not defined by the country that gave me my passport, but rather if I could just claim to be a human being, from earth. I identify much more with the latter.
