THE BIG QUESTIONS

  • CHALLENGES challenges

    There are corporations in this world that are bigger than most governments, and they are very powerful and they run the world.

  • GLOBAL ETHICS ethics

    I think that what's happening is a global ethic that is shifting from population's self-interest to upper levels of capitalization self-interest.

  • PEACE peace

    Human nature is what it is. If we go with the Biblical mythology of Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel, Cain killed Abel. That meant at the very start 25 percent of the human race was homicidal. That's not very promising.

  • LEADERSHIP leadership

    In a population that is allowed to vote, a democratic representative society, you must have people that vote that have a sense of what they're voting for, in other words an informed populace.
