Mages of 20th Century

With early industrial era the world that until then existed had disappeared. First gas lamps, then the electric and then the neon lights illuminate the planet and permanently expelled from it all shadows and secret places where the demons, fairies and elves were hiding. In this global inclusion of artificial light we tragically lost the world of fairy tales, myths and legends, that eternal childhood of human species. But, as always, things are not as definitive and as simple as they seems at first look. Still, among us are the same as those medieval magicians and alchemists of the Renaissance, as well as at the time we got up and went to sleep with sunsets. These modern magicians are cleverly disguised as an ordinary profession: some of them are painters, others, again – a prominent philosophers or professors of psychology, the third – writers, actors .. and among them there is even a real football coach. Just like their ancient predecessors, these magicians of our time running with the ease with their impossible missions, take down all the records, shock the public and defy all odds and every logic. Now, we will recall only some of them…

      Technically, he was born in Austria Empire (Croatia didn’t exist in this time), and lived in US most of his life.
      I believe people choose by themselves who or what they are. He always spoke of himself as a Serb. So, there is no any possible chance he is Croiatian.

    I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg has any place at all on this list, and to be picky, he would be a mage of the 21st century not the 20th.
