Thoughts about the responsibilities of governments?
As Simon said (I'm largely paraphrasing him here), its only when we the people gently and knowingly let our politicians and governments know that the times are changing, that we are moving into a closer, more connected and well knit fabric of society, that we can hope to see them change. Good politicians come from good people and its up to us, the people to help bring the future closer into the present, and build a better future for ourselves and thenceforth our children. - http://yieldmore.org/goodcountry-ppt
Thoughts about globalization?
I have dreamed of it for a long time, ever since I read this as a teenager - http://yieldmore.org/india I feel it more and more in my bones thats its not just the ramblings of some few dreamers, but an actual reality. I've always held that "every decade since the worldwide revolution of the 60s has shown us increase in our capacity to love and think of the well being of one another" (http://yieldmore.org/video-ppt slide 3)
Thoughts about belonging?
To quote from wikiquote - "I belong to the Great Church which holds the world within its starlit aisles; that claims the great and good of every race and clime; that finds with joy the grain of gold in every creed, and floods with light and love the germs of good in every soul." as reposted here - http://yieldmore.org/topics/religion/
Thoughts about music and the arts?
The power of art to heal, inspire and bring about change is perhaps the most powerful force because it, at once, harnesses the powers of love, intuition, reason and FEELING. If books are a window into the world, I do argue that music is a window into the soul - as evinced in this humble curation here - http://yieldmore.org/songs/
Thoughts about technology?
"We live in blessed, magical times... but look beyond the technology to see the people behind it..." - http://yieldmore.org/express/imran/keep-smiling/
and this old one - http://yieldmore.org/brother about how tomorrow, we shall BE AS ONE
Thoughts about aid?
