By Jacques Attali

Dans cette vaste fresque historique et potential, Jacques Attali retrace l’histoire de l’humanité comme jamais on ne l’a fait jusqu’à présent.

Pour lui, l’homme est nomade depuis ses origines, il y a quelques thousands d’années ; il n’a été que très brièvement sédentaire, et il est en educate de redevenir, à travers los angeles mondialisation, un nomade d’un nouveau genre.

C’est en tant que nomade qu’il a inventé les éléments clés de toutes les civilisations : le feu, les langues, les religions, l’équitation, l’agriculture, l’élevage, l. a. métallurgie, los angeles navigation, los angeles roue, l. a. démocratie, le marché, l. a. musique, les arts, ne laissant aux sédentaires que l’invention des forteresses, de l’Etat et de l’impôt.

Loin d’avoir été des Barbares venus détruire des civilisations existantes, les hommes du voyage furent les véritables forces d’innovation et de création à l. a. resource de tous les empires, de l. a. Chine à Rome, de l’Egypte à l’empire américain d’aujourd’hui. Quand elles se ferment aux nomades, aux itinérants, aux étrangers, aux mouvements de toutes sortes, les sociétés déclinent et périclitent.

Aujourd’hui, disparaissent les derniers peuples nomades sous les coups de los angeles « globalisation » ; s’ouvrent, avec les nouvelles applied sciences du voyage, réel et/ou virtuel, des views radicalement neuves pour l’humanité ; s’achève l’hégémonie du dernier empire sédentaire, les Etats-Unis, et begin une bold lutte entre les trois forces nomades qui aspirent à le remplacer – le marché, los angeles démocratie, los angeles foi –, éclairant d’un jour inédit les enjeux éthiques, culturels, militaires et politiques de notre temps.
