What wrong(s) would you right?

Hi there everyone,

I'd like to ask, what wrongs you believe there are in the world, that you would make right, if you could.

I posted a related question, asking "What would you tell children about following their dreams?" over here:
https://www.ted.com/conversations/7268/what_would_you_tell_children_a.html
& another asking "How will you strive to change the world?"
https://www.ted.com/conversations/7567/how_will_you_strive_to_change.html


I'm asking these questions as part of a video project of mine related to inspiring people to follow their dreams, right wrongs, and strive to change the world. Its all part of a web and real world project dedicated to enabling and empowering people, which we're starting called Utopian.

I'd love to quote the answers that some of you provide to this question and the other questions, and use them in the video. We'll be constructing a kind of 'visual wall' featuring everyone's statements.

We'll credit each person by placing their name next to their statement on the wall, which we'll be filming as an important part of the video.

I think these are deeply important subjects, and I'd love to hear what everyone has to say.

Thanks a lot,
Medfa

        Dec 11 2011: "There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so" - Though I would argue one must take into account the context of Hamlet saying that... ;)
        • Dec 12 2011: I would too Mohammed. There is right and there is wrong as much as people wish it not so. It does not come only from "my perception."

          In a world where there is no right or wrong, wrong seems somtimes ok, and right never gets its due.

          Misplaced Enlightenment views get us nowhere.
