Do you ever wonder what human society would look like if we would not protect our innovations and instead make available all knowledge for free?
I venture to say that it would lead to a world without greed; a world were everyone’s needs are met; a world where the working folks are not squeezed to make the rich richer — as is happening right now all across our land were the drumbeat of cut, cut, cut is threatening to eviscerate education and healthcare. The very services which should be considered a basic right for all, not just for the ones with the big pocket books.
If you are wondering how it would be possible to create an alternative to our screwed up “free market” system I’d like to share with you three TED talks of young people who are trying to do precisely that.
Lets start with Marcin Jakubowski’s ‘Open Sourced Blueprints for Civilisation’:
His website is http://opensourceecology.org
Next, meet Mick Ebeling who started the ‘Not Impossible Foundation’:
His website is http://www.notimpossiblefoundation.org
And last, but certainly not least, meet Ann-Marie Thomas and her ‘Hands-on Science for Little Hands:
I hope that meeting these wonderful people will make your day.
