Watch this home interview of Prof Harari.
Find a Hebrew knowing person to translate it for you. 

The video is in this link. You can also read a little bit of the interview here.  

Or interview him yourselves. Or, better yet, ask Ilana Dayan to interview him again, in English. 

He is interviews at home, two days ago. Good example to stay home. 

Prof Harari is respected and read by so many millions, globally, he’s one of the few globally that has a deep view of humanity past and future, ahd he’s got a message that puts the situation into proportions. Comparing with the Black Plague, where nobody understood why so many die, in our case, it took only two weeks to find the cause for the disease, map it’s DNA, and work on vaccine based on lots of science to direct the oath to its finding.

And he’s projecting a sense of control and calmness in a good way, while he’s also critiquing irresponsible world leaders and inspiring a change in election patterns. Mind you, on last DAVOS World Economic Forum convention, they all listened to him:

To hear about what’s happening in Africa and Arab countries. Seems ignored.

Exactly what I wrote above: Africa and Arab counties.  Can’t believe everything is so clean of virus there. So worried if neglect and misinformation.

Also missing info on how I and others could help. Even missing fund raisers to relevant projects.

Impact investor

Tel Aviv

In what country are you located?
