Someone is shy

Blade hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

Does anyone think that we can have an efficient, peaceful world?
Well Michael I suggest it still begs the question of who is best suited to perform certain functions as noted here: http://boingboing.net/2012/12/31/which-professions-have-the-mos.html Ala: Most of the professions on the right require human connection, dealing with feelings and most of them don’t offer much power. Psychopaths, by their very nature, would not be drawn to or very good at these things. On the other hand, most of the roles on the left do offer power and many require an ability to make objective, clinical decisions divorced from feelings. Psychopaths would be drawn to these roles and thrive there. Which in turn begs the question would you (as a shareholder in your country and a share portfolio holder) prefer it to be run/managed by an objective rationalist or an indecisive emotive bleeding heart that can't/won't make/take the hard decisions sometimes required? Just curious, just asking.

Well Michael.........................suggest that if a study was done covering all demographics of social strata it would show per the usual 1000 population that there are more psychopaths per 1000 population in the lower social strata of society than in the higher social strata of society. But Hey I could be wrong. And then there is this to have a ponder......... :) http://boingboing.net/2012/12/31/which-professions-have-the-mos.html

Well Pabitra with your statement...............'There will be no countries or geo-political boundaries.' would one be correct to assume you are an advocate of the 'New World Order' that many fear? Btw I can't see any 'One World' without the destruction/removal of most of the existing third world cultural practices and all the planets religions. Somewhat like in Lennon;s drug stupor inspired 'Imagine'. And I can't see that happening anytime soon. Show me a politician that is going to advocate giving up his countries sovereignty and you have a ousted politician. ie: after the fall of the USSR every country fought to have their own identity back and then look what happened after Tito died in Yugoslavia. How many of you Guys still have the 'Free Tibet' stickers on your Suby?

Well David ..........suggest Microsoft was a dream based/started on a 'self serving capitalistic gain' ideology! Btw. I do not have a problem with that ideology/concept! :) Further suggest that your 'by the people, for the people' concept has been tried and found guilty of Fail, ala the USSR and Mr Marx. cheers..................

What does it mean to be globally aware and why is it important?
Quite so Fritzie.............. but they have asked me to rephrase it so, 'quote' it is not a 'generalization I am making of the 3rd world and accordingly I have re submitted an amended version which may yet see the light of TED. :) And Daniel................does that make it clearer for you? And may I also suggest that Miyamoto Musashi (who I hadn't heard of until now) was one that spent his/her life turning the other cheek if they lived with that philosophy.
