This period saw the transition from a relatively rigid system of legal proofs which predetermined when there was sufficient evidence for a condemnation, to a system based on the free evaluation of the evidence by either professional judges or lay jurors.

We should be working far less by now, with no wage-slaves, poverty or illusions of democracy. We should be living in a kind of Frescoesque Venus Project World by now, no?

But I think there will be enough resources, technology, and intelligence to support a much smaller, smarter, and enhanced group of humans or human-machine hybrids. And this is what Yuval Noah Harari says in that article you linked to.
Money is the most successful story ever. You have the master storytellers, the bankers, the finance ministers telling you that money is worth something. Try giving money to a chimp. I would consider that an enlightened objective under the emerging circumstances and worthy of evolutionary survival, adaptation, and some form of reproduction cloning, sexual, Transhumanist immortality, or otherwise.
There will be more walled cities with those inside tuning out what happens outside. Do I think humans can be ethical and compassionate? But we are also capable of dehumanizing the enemy in order to kill them.民間普遍有一種說法：「年關難過」，似乎有些道理。新年伊始、季節更替之際，面對許多生死大事，尤其過年之前看到幾個.
