"If you can't win, change the rules." this is what we should do with financial crisis.

Peter Diamandis in the one of his talks said "If you can't win, change the rules" and this is what we should do with financial crisis. We have got now much better technology and ideas so we should use these all of things to make better future. We should stop listen politicians and we should just take care about ourself. In this way we can use the Internet as a tool for direct democracy which could change the rules and could let us win.

  • Apr 16 2012: I am in agreement here. Old outdated rules are still running the asylum. Shock everyone into submission.
    Guided by religious beliefs(read guilt) we have accepted that people should die of starvation, economies should collapse, before we step on our grandfathers outdated moral boundaries.
    Fact, we are flying on a rock through space around a gigantic nuclear fireball. We all could parish in the next second by an incoming comet.
    Do not waste time. Use TED as a forum for world economic change, now.
    How? Well that is the question isn't it? Let's get on with finding the answer.
