Yuval Noah Harari warns Trump that patriotism cannot solve global threats
Sapiens author has criticised the US president’s rejection of international cooperation, as well as admonishing Brexiters’ ‘fantasy’ of independence

Sapiens author Yuval Noah Harari has warned Donald Trump that global cooperation is crucial if humanity is to face its “existential crisis”, after the US president publicly rejected the approach at the UN this week.

The Israeli academic, whose books about the past and future of humanity, Sapiens and Homo Deus, have sold in their millions, said Trump’s speech embracing “the doctrine of patriotism” was very disturbing.

Speaking on Thursday, Harari said that humankind faced an existential crisis due to three overlapping problems: nuclear war, climate change and technological disruption.

“All these problems are global problems in essence, and it should be clear to everybody – especially to politicians – that there is no national solution to nuclear war, climate change or technological disruption,” Harari said. “You can’t build a wall against nuclear winter or against global warming and you can’t regulate artificial intelligence or biotechnology on a national basis. Because nobody would like to be behind, nobody would like to limit their own research and development if other countries are not adopting similar regulations. Global cooperation is the first and necessary step to successfully facing our challenges as a species.”

Harari also took a dim view of Brexit, which he described as “basically a distraction. I don’t think inherently it’s a bad idea … but the timing is terrible… If the EU breaks up into 28 different countries, it’s going to be much more difficult to negotiate climate agreements, to have a common front against the hi-tech giants. Every minute the UK and EU institutes are spending on Brexit is a minute they don’t spend on climate change. And they spend a lot of minutes on it.

“Also it’s all just a fantasy about being independent. But there are no longer any independent countries in the world. It doesn’t matter what’s written on some document.”

See, on one hand, the Cult of Climastrology pushes for globalism, no borders, etc. On the other, they complain about road miles from shipping food, clothes, and other products from around the world. Don’t ask for consistency.

    Donald Trump is President of the United States; his duty is to worry about Americans, and not foreigners.

    The European Union is 28 different countries, no matter how much Reichskanzlerin und Führerin Angela Merkel believes she should rule it.
