Is the present era of unrest and war, a clash of civilization or a clash of ignorance? Is TEDcommunity able to play any role in this regard?
The so called, 'war against terrorism' and 'war for the survival of freedom in the west', which is now destroying and has set on fire many nations of the Globe including, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan etc. Which if not soon looked at will be destructive to the whole world. Intentionally or unintentionally this war is sometimes given a meaning of clash between Religions or civilizations. And to a major extent, some specific Religions are believed to be responsible for this(which I'd never agree to)...
1- Does the TED community agree with any such slogans?
2- What vital roles can an enlightened and powerful community like TED, play in this regard, in order to minimize the human sufferings, losses of lives and in preaching peace and harmony?
In my opinion, this is not more than a clash of ignorance and indeed results of unresolved economic and Political conflicts...
