How would you take over the world?

This is meant to be a fun and creative forum where you can tell the TED community how you would take over the world or die trying! To start off let's say you are from an upper middle class family in the United States of America. Obviously intelligence and leadership skills are given. What would be your path to world domination without destroying the whole planet in the process?

  • Dec 28 2012: How would you take over the world?
    Well, 1st we all have to be on the same page. That means we all have to agree the world is NOT working at its current state of affairs. Then we have to recognize what the CAUSE may be.

    Ideologies, religion, governments, borders, race, political parties & hardline opinions is what divides us.

    So if I were POTUS (president of the US) I would start with an APOLOGY to the world and ask for a another chance.

    We (America) have gone astray from being an example to the rest of the world AND instead have become a CONQUEROR.

    With our foreign policy driven by paranoia from fear of being TERRORIZED thus becoming that which we fear the most "terrorists".

    The world has been watching for decades as we've used the CIA in manipulating foreign governments to the point of dissolving those governments so we could employ the IMF to loan $$ to fallen governments so they can rebuild with secret agreements to capture their resources and infuse financial institutions to direct their economies.

    Its no secret any longer most of the world knows and most Americans are oblivious thus could care less as long as they are entertained to have a good time. Cluelessness is no longer an excuse as the world continues to socially and ecologically decay now at an ever increasing speed.

    WE have to acknowledge this NOW or the whole world will implode into chaos further dividing us because we failed to agree of those key issues mention above which divide us.

    WE need to recognize the IDEA that diversity is a good thing otherwise a one world government will have us "conform" into "one synthetic product" a complete opposite of what humanity is all about.

    Common sense tells us that even one human being has multiple senses to help navigate each "individual" through life. We have to recognize each culture has something positive to offer to the world.

    So the start to take over the world is with a sincere apology followed with an ALL inclusive agenda of EQUALITY!
