Like you, we know the world can be better, and we invite you to join the conversation.
I'm willing to join this conversation as I believe there is a lot of change needed and that as a race we cannot carry on the way we are.
I've started a couple of threads now about how change could be practially achieved as I prefer the idea of gradual change coming from the inside (of the existing systems) as opposed to some cataclysmic event or series of events be they natural of some kind of uprising. Threads here: Enlightened Business Socially Responsible Finance 2.0
My approach is from a very practical angle as I know for a fact that the effective running of governments and financial institutions (I've worked in both) is not some elite art that takes 1% of the population to know how to do.
I see education and empowerment and the Internet as key tools in this change.
If you don't like the way big business has so much power - start your own business and build it into a better big business and take their market share
Don't like the fact that so few people hoard all the money - learn how to trade/invest and take that money off of them
Don't like the way that governments run your country? Use the web to get your message across to enough people and force them to change
I'm optimistic that change is happening, it's gradual but it is. We all have to change and adapt to make it happen though.
