Have you read this book, what are your thoughts?
I've just finished this audiobook and I can't remember reading such a negative perception of the world. Unless reading the news, of course, which I've given up a while now.
The author is a journalist and this could explain the tone of the book.
The all thing is about how nations, empires and people play a game of power between them aiming at controlling resources , stealing wealth, be vigilant from each other, influence and fears leading to wars and catastrophes.
I can't be naive nor have the knowledge of the international policy to say these are not true but one is true. The international policies are based on fear.
The human race is far, far away from consciousness and come to grasp that we're all connected in a way that make all these wars, fights and fears pointless. Would you agree?
