[Nettime-bold] Re: <nettime> Palestinians as Myth


All nation states are historically recent inventions. Even the oldest
states, such as England or the USA, are only a few centuries old. In recent
years, Palestinians, Kosovars, Bosniaks, Kurds, East Timorese and many
other peoples have been struggling to achieve the national
self-determination which most of us on nettime take for granted. For it is
only those who live under of the protection of stable and independent
republics who have the privilege of dreaming about a world without states...
