“The problem is that given the kind of challenges we face today, the opportunity costs of being very self absorbed are becoming higher and higher all the time.

We have a global ecology, a global economy and a global science – but we are still stuck with only national politics. To have effective politics we must either deglobalise the ecology, the economy or the march of science – or we must globalise our politics.” culture/2018/may/21/yuval-noah-harari-brexit-will-not-halt-drive-to-humanunifi cation
