  • Jul 13 2012: What the world needs now is a new political movement that is not influenced by big corporations. As long as there are political parties that are influenced by corporations that aim to make a profit by imposing their will on politicians there will be no hope, no peace, no openness and no unlimited innovation.

    So what the world needs is political reform. Reform and new ideas that suit this world and its needs better.

      • Jul 14 2012: Pirate party is a good start for instance :). Open policy, transparent government, reform of the patent and copyright system which are holding back innovation.

        Also why should I say "how" it should be done. The question was "what" does the world need right now. I answered his question.
        • Jul 16 2012: I must admit that that is a technicality that you got me on, good sir. But, I believe that with such an open-ended response that has to do with working and changing things, not just adding a certain element of humanity, I thought that a more in-depth answer was implied.
