  • Sep 5 2013: I feel there are 2 parts to your question:

    1. Yes TED is international but not totally until all people have access to the internet free of government control of the access.

    2. The other side of the question is can we discuss anything logically and politely without rancor and hostility? NO. There are too many with strong opinions who are unwilling to admit there could be different sides of a topic.
    • Sep 9 2013: Do you have examples of #2 that you could link me to? I am new to TED Conversations and doing a research project on the writing found here, so I am curious to see an interaction as you described. If you have an example readily available I would greatly appreciate you posting the link or sending me an email.
      Thank you very much!
      • Sep 10 2013: Forgot the conversation but someone could not accept the fact that not everyone is a conservative christian. The last comment was I should accept his god and go to church. He could not accept that there was a different point of view.
