Globalism or Each Nation for itself?

Now I am sure it's not clear from the title what I am asking, so let me explain.
Would you rather have a global politic system, where everyone is under the rule of a few people like a council or something, but there are open borders and stuff like that, or rather keep it the way it is with borders?

I choose for independant nations and borders anytime. If you create a world government with a few leaders, you get a system that resembles that of communism, a system like in China, or in the old Sovjet Russia. A sort of central politbureau that decides for the whole world and where normal people have no influence whatsoever.

With a world government there can be no such thing as freedom, for me it would amount to slavery.

Yeah I see it that way too, and I would not want to live under a communist regime ever again, unless it's the Vietnam one lol that one is chill.

Tell us about Vietnam. Have you lived there? I did not know they had a communist system now?

Nah I went on vacation there, it is so chill and so many people are happy there. Some of my friends work there, in their words "We make less money than in China, but it's way more chill than in China, the life is easier and healthier because there is no pressure or stress."
I loved my time there and the possibilities are endless as long as you have money.

I honestly think both have their advantages and disadvantages. It seems like it's only a matter of time before we're united under a single global system, even though I think it sounds pretty scary on the surface. My gut feeling is that people and countries are also way too different to be able to coexist under one roof. Having said that, we are all becoming so interconnected that it does also feel somewhat inevitable.

Exactly how this would all look and pan out in practice though, I couldn't say.

I am 100% for countries cooperating and making certain agreements (like trade agreements) with each other, but globalism as a whole is just a terrible ideology. I believe every nation should look out for their own interests and govern themselves according to their own cultures and needs. Aside from human rights issues or responding to military attacks, countries should just stay out of other countries' business. That's why we have individual nations in the first place.

I don't want a one-world system. It just won't work. We should be able to remain independent nations who have our own ideas and growth changes. Not everyone will agree on politics, religion, or lifestyle choices. Putting us all under one government will mean we all lose freedom, instead of only some countries not having freedoms for their people.
