11/15/2016

Waldog

"Until the late modern era, more than 90 percent of humans were peasants who rose each morning to till the land by the sweat of their brows. The extra they pro- duced fed the tiny minority of elites – kings, government offic- ials, soldiers, priests, artists and thinkers – who fill the history books.

History is something that very few people have been doing while everyone else was ploughing fields and carrying water buckets."


- Yuval Noah Harari
