Geography has been digitized into celestial oblivion, a matter of satellite imagery and sensors. The Earth cybernates.
Capital busies itself exhausting colonial expropriation. States honor alliances that better serve the effort to extract resources from weaker nations over the sanctity of borders and sovereignty; unless it's a matter of keeping undesirables away or securing the wealth of an insulated elite.
Geography disposes. Its value is in the exchange of data points to augment market hegemony. Surveillance, Security and GPS targeting by high tech weapons are Geography's Golgotha.
When colonial epochs peak, geography's end pens the epitaph.
