Dr. Yuval Noah Harari, who earned a doctorate from Oxford, is a  42-year old Israeli philosopher and a history professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The futurist philosopher Yuval Noah Harari worries about a lot. He worries that Silicon Valley is  undermining democracy and ushering a dystopian hellscape in which voting is obsolete.

He worries that by creating powerful machines to control billions of minds, tech companies are destroying the idea of an individual with a free will.

He worries that because the technological revolution's work requires so few laborers, Silicon Valley is creating a tiny ruling class and a teeming, furious ''useless class.''

But lately, Mr. Harari is anxious bout something much more personal. If this is harrowing warning, then why do Silicon Valley chief executives love him so?

''One possibility is that my message is not threatening to them, and so they embrace it?'' a puzzled Mr. Harari said one afternoon in October. ''For me, that's more worrying. Maybe I'm missing something?''

When Mr. Harari toured the San Francisco Bay area this fall to promote his latest book, the reception was incongruously joyful.

Reed Hastings, the chief executive of Netflix, threw him a dinner party. The leaders of X, Alphabet's secretive research division, invited Mr. Harari over.

Bill Gates reviewed the book ''Fascinating'' and ''such a stimulating writer'' in The New York Times.

''I'm interest in how Silicon Valley can be infatuated with Yuval, which they are - it's insane he's so popular, they're all inviting him to campus - yet what Yuvral is saying undermines the premise of the advertising and engagement-based model of their products,'' said Tristan Harris, Google's former in house design ethicist and the co-founder of the Center for Humane Technology.

Part of the reason might be that Silicon Valley, at a certain level, is not optimistic on the future of democracy.

The more of a mess Washington becomes, the more interested the tech world is in creating something else, and it might not look like elected representation.

Rank-and-file coders have long been wary of regulation and curious about alternative forms of government. A separatist streak runs through the place:

Venture capitalists periodically call for California to scede and or shatter, or for the creation of  corporate nation states. And this summer, Mark Zuckerberg, who has recommended Mr. Harari to his book club, acknowledged a fixation with the autocrat Caesar Agustus.

''Basically,'' Mr. Zuckerberg told The New Yorker, ''through a really harsh approach, he established  200 years of world peace.''

Mr. Harari, thinking about all this, puts it this way : Utopia and dystopia depend on your values.''

The story of his fame begins in 2011, when he published a book of notable ambition : to survey the whole of human existence.

Futuristic philosopher calls  Silicon Valley a dystopian ruin. So why is he adorned?
