Decolonization of the world

The world in which we currently live is the product of societies warring, conquering, and colonizing one another for millennia. As such, there are thousands of nations and ethnic groups that are under the rule and domination of other groups, pressed into societies to which they do not wish to belong.
     To correct for this injustice, we must recognize that all nations of people are entitled to self-determination and sovereignty over their own lands, regardless of their oppressor’s overwhelming size. Therefore, we must release from our modern empire-states the lands owned by the members of any nation numbering at least 4,600 people for their own self-rule. However, in order to prevent the creation of inefficient borders, the lands to be released must be contiguous and not create any enclaves.
