In this video IE University International Relations Prof. Mira Milosevic argues that people’s secret lives have exactly the same function as espionage in the field of international relations. Moreover, she says that everyone needs a secret life because it assures a certain level of protection.
In her view social networks make it extremely tempting to overshare our public and family lives, leaving us vulnerable.
Don t miss what she says about espionage and prostitution, citing what Vernon Walters, former Deputy Director of the CIA, once said to her!
Prof. Milosevic was born in Serbia, is extremely well read, conversant in several languages, and a very inspiring character, who of course likes to keep her secret life, secret!!!
P.S. She recommended a Croatian author you might want to check out – Dubravka Ugresic. I really like her work!
