Dan Ariely: How equal do we want the world to be? You'd be surprised
I don't see it in any of these ways. To me, you EARN what you have in life via hard work. Poorer people often have harder access to training courses etc so in certain circumstances they should be aided but if people don't want to contribute to the improvement of themselves or society why the heck should they just be given equality? Makes no sense.

Anne-Marie Slaughter: Can we all "have it all"?
hmmm :) you will NOT be able to socialise males into becoming caregivers. I'm afraid you are attempting to mess with evolution. This is where her insights have led her only half way. Its a good talk though. One thing i totally agree with is that government must provide a lot more for caregivers. Its so bad currently that caregivers get very little aid to do probably the most important job on earth...successfully raise a child.

David Puttnam: Does the media have a "duty of care"?
Robert, the medias role is to inform its public. To say they are not obligated to do so is a bit like saying a tennis players role is to not hit tennis balls or a court judge not to make judgements. What do you believe the medias role is? And to say "The danger in relying on someone/something else to make you informed is the real threat." equally makes no sense. Whether we like it or not we learn from OTHERS one way or another.

Stefan Larsson: What doctors can learn from each other
No, you're not understanding my question. If we (humans) have to be or become cynical as a result of everyone around us (the world) being selfish, non-trustable exploiters then what makes that person who experienced those injustices the exception to the rule? This genuinely puzzles me. I'm proof of this. I know I'm a trustable person, not selfish to any harmful degree, and would not exploit others, yet the world around me seems that very way (for the most part). What makes me the exception or you the exception? Everyone thinks they are the exception, right. So how do you explain that because it CAN NOT be both ways.

Michael Sandel: Why we shouldn't trust markets with our civic life
Good talk, but lets be honest it's never going to change the way things are. The momentum of the current movement to flying faster than ever towards inequality and divide which is having a profound effect on how people behave (as illustrated by this video and even better illustrated in Mr. Pinks book Drive), people will go to some shady lengths when money is the incentive. Which is made even worse by the fact that the consequences of not having much money in these times are pretty bad and unfair.
