How do you think a person can contribute to society through his own ways?
Volunteering at a hospital, the Va, doing one kind act a day, any and all of that contributes to more peaceful society. I can forget, because I am one of the lucky ones who is educated, had a great career, traveled, and live comfortably, that by definition society is comprised of: Websters definition. 1 : companionship or association with one's fellows : friendly or intimate intercourse : company 2 : a voluntary association of individuals for common ends; especially : an organized group working together or periodically meeting because of common interests, beliefs, or profession 3 a : an enduring and cooperating social group whose members have developed organized patterns of relationships through interaction with one another b : a community, nation, or broad grouping of people having common traditions, institutions, and collective activities and interests 4 a : a part of a community that is a unit distinguishable by particular aims or standards of living or conduct : a social circle or a group of social circles having a clearly marked identity b : a part of the community that sets itself apart as a leisure class and that regards itself as the arbiter of fashion and manners and an online community, such as this, is the deviant social group.

What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?
How do we better communicate to the average person, that we are all a part of the Global community of mankind? and as such are all equally responsible to insure peace here on our world. Most people I talk to have a difficult time relating their actions into the global community. For Example: each time they purchase a tank of gas, they are contributing to the loss of a natural resource, or choosing to shop at Walmart and the increase in using child labor and slave wages to keep costs in check.

What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?
I find this statement incredibly self-serving,and pompous. But other than that I don't see what other filter you can use. Many people think they have great ideas but just very few do... and the ones that do are wealthy enough to go to a converence. The ones that think they do however.... well they should be held as far away from these converences as possible ;) what you Must remember is that you would exclude Albert Einstein early in his career, Steve Job, Bill Gates and Michael Dell, if they were young also. and What a shame it would have been if those voices were silenced because they did not have 7500.00
