A Single World Currency and a World Central Bank - For or Against?
It would indeed be the death of nation states as we know them. Just as the Euro is struggling to manage a central currency without a central government so too would the world. Star Ship Troopers here we come! I fear a single currency would lead inevitably to a world government. Values, culture, etc would all mold into one. I guess we are already doing all of this, I don't like it. I think diversity is important.

Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation
If 21st century schools are teaching kids to be 20th century workers I guess to bolster my kid's chances of succeeding in the 21st century workplace I'll home school them the basics with an emphasis on creativity, problem solving, etc. Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose of course being my motivational tools

Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius
Martin Luther King believed in two laws. The law of man and the law of God. This concept birthed the civil liberties we hold so valuable (or did at one point) today. If God is applicable so is Satan. If good can influence us so can evil....But as liz talks about we still have to show up and do our job. Can an artist who is inspired create a masterpiece if they don't pick up the paint brush? Can a soul tempted hurt people if they don't pick up the gun? I will take this one step further. I believe my self worth is in no way changed by my actions. Bold right? Bear with me, imagine your self worth was an indestructible bar gold. Nothing you can do will ever change the value of this tangible, but what if you painted it blue? Is it still valuable? Sure, but not many people are going to jump out of their seats when you pull out a blue block that isn't easily identifiable as a bar of gold. What if you drop it in some dog who ha? Is it still gold? Sure but who is going to know that....all they see is a blue block cover in dog excrement. My point is, our choices can hide our worth but they can't change it. This is why God can love everyone, he knows that no matter what we do to our brick of gold, its still gold. Killers, rapist, people who work on wall street.....they have all done a pretty good job at coating their bar with unmentionables, but it doesn't change their true worth.

I think this is the key to most of our generations mental health issues. Its vital that as human beings we look to a great power for strength. Whether its determining "why am I worthy" or managing the emotional complexities of being an artist, I believe its always applicable. Does the idea of "societies who are lead by God thrive and those that forget him fail" ring any bells out there? Lets skip the God argument and rather think of simply the physiological and sociological benefits of a society that believe in something greater than their own flesh.
