You're asking how we achieve all those things without violence? Without a state system? Empower the proletariat, in other words help them acquire freedom. States arbitrarily annexes, commit violence , there is permanent dislocations with culture, shared community & often it is never fixed because of state building. Diversity of language is dying because of the centralising force of state systems. Just take China for example with the Uyegar (is that you spell it?) Muslims being genocided in their east. What about the United States? You guys love to go on about your freedom of speech all the time (lol) It was banned in the United States to speak Hawaiian. It was nearly entirely destroyed & has only just managed to survive. There are endless examples. States are institutions of tyranny. Dismantling them is the solution. Which requires effort from effectively everyone to resist domination.
