Out of the strict decolonization context, we could examine the cases of regions which are called non-autonomous with a topostrategic vision.
In actual fact, the classic approach comprises of a tendency to consider the notion of distance as a key element.
However it is quite clear and mostly this is mainly correct for the islands which represent the vast majority of cases, that the nature of the physical border is not impeded.
This in actual fact means that, the islands have the right to decide
re: their annexation to anybody they see fit, or even to be independent if that is posible without them at all dealing with the concept of distance, because what’s most important is the concept of relationship, and this of course has no other meaning but via the sea or the ocean.
If additionally this relationship with a certain State is intertemporal, then we can talk about a real bond even throughout the space of Chronostrategy.
The islands are observing the world through their relationships and not through the lands which are near them.
It is therefore for this reason that we think that the people of the islands have the inalienable right to choose their annexation according to their strategic interests.
