Kinja is not allowing me to embed the comment by commenter Draw it, but they want to bring attention to the fight of the Kurds in the city of Kobane, and the amazingly unique story of non-nation building that they have been doing there. It is a political entity that is based on ecology, egalitariasm and feminism. And it was working! At least before the Islamic State started acquiring territory, but they have been holding firm apparently.

Below is an article that Draw it linked to in their comment. It really is an amazing story of how the Kurds of Kobane have thrown the old paradigm of a nation-state out the window.
