I have made several references to one of my favourite intellectuals Yuval Noah Harari in my intellectual work and opinion-making. For example, I have written about Harari’s recent book “21 lessons for 21st century” via the Swedish cultural magazine Opulens.
There are several reasons why I admire Harari’s work, including his writings about nationalism - a term that I have been trying to understand since my war-time childhood experiences in Bosnia.
Harari is one of my absolute favourite intellectuals. At the moment, when I am focusing on promoting ideas of liquid democracy, I have been trying to understand Harari’s position regarding global development and politics concerning democracy. From reading his latest book, I understood that Harari is:
a) against global government
b) in favour of global politics, democracy and institutional order
