Malcolm Gladwell: The strange tale of the Norden bombsight
firstly, you're my hero for providing this beautifully concise take away that goes right to one major point in this talk which i also took away. another thing i took away was the financial aspect. this immediately made me think of how displaced the current "occupy wall street" mission is. the amount of money spent on military technologies is astounding. the misuse of that money more so. let's spend that money on being the change we want to see in the world. as an example, education. we would be amazed at the results we could achieve. there are more appropriate "institutions" to "occupy" and it begins with each and every one of us being the change we want to see in the world. which brings me to recall a shining example of one who is attempting to do just that: joe, the plumber. thank you.

If we could define democracy in a way that is as close to "true" for all of humanity, what would this mean for this world?
let's consider how similar we all are. despite how different we may appear we are all very similar at the genetic level, from an evolutionary viewpoint. this includes everything from how we raise our children to how we barter and trade. there is a better system of democracy. in fact, there is a yearning for this better system bearing its head presently in some places of our world. education is at the root of the pace, progression.

what qualifies as an authentic culture? are some cultures more authentic than others?
when you visit disney's epcot center you see relics of authentic cultures which have since evolved, largely due to technology and communication. this does not mean that current german culture is not authentic. nor does it mean that japanese and brazilian cultures are the same. relics exist in every current thing we use. our own DNA is rife with relics. culture is ever-growing, ever-changing while remaining authentic. no?
