Martin Van Creveld
Keep him in mind. In 1999, he published the book "The Rise and Decline of the State". At that time, he produced several articles that summarized the main points of the book, generally entitled: "The Fate of the State". Quote:
"The State, which during the three and a half centuries since the Treaty of Westphalia (1648) has been the most important and the most characteristic of all modern institutions, appears to be declining or dying."
His main point in 1999 was that the old-fashioned "state" was being overtaken by newer models. Not all good for us now as we experience the results of his primary predictions:
1) NGO's everywhere. He saw them as becoming governments unto themselves. Today we have a couple of particularly scary NGO's: Soros running his NGO flooding Europe with so-called "refugees". Then, there is Gates telling us how to run our lives, and making $$$ from vaccines being pushed on governments. They war-gamed the virus outbreak in late 2019. They have a plan....
2) Multi-national corporations. When Van Creveld was writing, it was clear that large corporations were governments unto themselves, and "states" were becoming subservient. Today it is far worse, especially because the flow of information has become highly concentrated.
Remember that "failed state" has become quite a popular phrase in recent decades. We see many examples, including Venezuela (communism), Lebanon (artificial battleground, destruction of true multi-cultural society by "Palestinians" led by Arafat), Libya (U. S.-led revolution), etc.
Keep his points in mind. Read his material if you can get your hands on it.

I've posted several items there. (So many people are being kicked off of social media, this is one of the few that allows dissenting opinions.)
No tracking, safer to us, etc, etc.
