What Harari has done here is quite a feat. He has squeezed what could easily been a series of books into one volume, covering topics like:
▪️The resurrection of nationalism.
▫️What to do in a post-jobs world.
▪️The opportunity cost of fighting terrorism.
▫️Why we need a deep understanding of suffering and how to attain it.
▪️What should we teach our kids in school to prepare the for the future?
▫️How to live in the age of biotech, algorithms and AI.
▪️Is religion still relevant?
▫️Do we need a whole new ideology to deal with the problems of the 21st century when liberalism just wont cut it anymore?
▪️Culturism vs. Rasism.
The book is relevant, nuanced and sometimes frightening.
How do I plan do dig deeper into the themes covered in this book in 2019?
I will read ‘Future Presence’ early next year. It’s about human connection in a future of virtual reality.
