Yuval Noah Harari on Why Technology Favors Tyranny - The Atlantic

'In the 21st century, data will eclipse both land and machinery as the most important asset, so politics will be a struggle to control data’s flow. '

'Hence as computers take over more routine cognitive jobs, new creative jobs for humans will continue to appear. '

'Together, infotech and biotech will create unprecedented upheavals in human society, eroding human agency and, possibly, subverting human desires. '

' This article has been adapted from Yuval Noah Harari’s book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. '

'Given 20th-century technology, it was inefficient to concentrate too much information and power in one place. '
