The amazing book of Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens. A Brief History of Humanity, could be summed up in two images: the one that reminds us, from the very first pages, of our not-so-noble origins:
Just 6 million years ago, a single female ape had two daughters. One became the ancestor of all chimpanzees, the other is our own grandmother.
And the one that ends the book with the not-so-flattering description of a petulant, overbearing humanity:
Is there anything more dangerous than dissatisfied and irresponsible gods who don’t know what they want?
In between, our not-so-glorious (hi)story, built solely on cruelty and destruction.
