Personally I enjoy these thought experiments because I am interested in ideas of how to improve the quality of political representation in America. Maybe it would be good to organize states with similar cultural values, or maybe it would be good to organize around conflict-prone resources like rivers, or maybe the best we can do is redraw states more equally proportioned to their populations. Anything would be better than what we've done, which was driven by the forces of land grabs and slavery preservation.
