Why do some states enjoy wealth, security, health and nutrition while others face poverty, unemployment, lack of health care and safety?

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. Corporations are dictatorships, when they have the income of a small country they can manipulate those and even bigger countries. The result is democracy is just a façade. The financial position of the corporation becomes more important, the starving poor don’t matter. There are times when the American Government has stepped in to protect

  2. The reality we create is a reflection of our consciousness. When the collective consciousness of a country is egocentric, people only care about their own self, see themselves as separate from others, and create systems (political, economic, education, healthcare, etc) that are exclusive. What is important for each individual is that they have access to stuff and nobody else does, because they want it all for themselves.

  3. That creates dictatorships, corruption, poverty, exploitation, discrimination, lack of access to education, lack of access to healthcare, disease, lack of infrastructure, wars, environmental devastation, etc.

  4. If you want to live a better life, if you want to live in a better world, raise your consciousness to cosmocentric consciousness. It starts with the man in the mirror. I did it and you can too. Start today!

  5. Carlos Slim made his fourtune by holding a monopoly (which i do not doubt) but Bill Gates with Microsoft, that has been found guilty of antitrust behavior by the FTC in several ocassions, didnt?
