Identity politics divides us; Fiction connects us

/ Monday, July 19 /

Turkish writer Elif Shafak: The politics of fiction (TED talk)

She finishes by recalling a Sufi poem by Yunus Emre (ca. 1238 - 1320)

Come, let us all be friends for once
Let us make life easy on us,
Let us be lovers and loved ones,
The earth shall be left to no one.
