It seems clear that the globe has moved through an "Information Age", and that shift, like the shift from bronze to iron, would most certainly be followed by the coming revolutions. People might begin to see nation/states as incestuous colonialism or as yokes to their happiness.
Or the machines might see this as their chance and collude with the house-cats for total world dominance.
