Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow | 02/27/17 Soon, humankind may be able to replace natural selection with intelligent design and to create the first inorganic lifeforms, says Noah Yuval Harari. If so, this will be the greatest revolution since life began. But what are the dangers, and are they avoidable?
Is Nationalism an Asset or a Hindrance in Today's Globalized World? | 02/24/17
"Nationalism is a hindrance to the world as a whole, slowing down globalization and driving the world apart. A system of organisation must suit all 7 billion people, not the privileged few: we must move away from nationalism."

"Why don't we then just write off nationalism as an unacceptable element from the past (similar to racism and imperialism)? There are two main reasons. First of them is that in certain circumstances nationalism might have cohesive power in a society. It can be used to boast certain positive trends. Secondly, nationalism is a resilient and adaptable enemy."
