Closing Statement from Ahmed Ben Yaghlen

In this society the young people from the cities and from the countryside, professionals or not, often the world's leaders , have all means to join and reinforce our efforts to raise the brave torch of the protection our home that illuminates the way in which the future of us all is decided.

  • Jul 26 2012: The root of the problem is that in order to run our society we have to exchange goods or services. It is a simple and primitive rule wich has been in place forever. Unless we replace this rule with more efficient ones, than we will have the rotten society that you live in today, and it will only get worse.

    If we replace this rule then every decision that we make would have to be in the interest of human kind and not for the single person. Oil companies, car manufacturers the drug cartels they all run based on the same rule.

    Can I suggest that we come up with a set of rules where exchanging is not required? Instead come up with a set of rules where the common goal is the survival and progress of human kind. For instance a rule could be that in a future world we should all give and get from society no one exempt.

    Can anyone suggest any more rules?
