"We should be marching towards a global society."

Although it seems to be going in that direction whether we want it to or not, it certainly can't hurt to get a little push in the direction of thinking about our big problems on a global scale and to work together to solve them. That's basically the point of a recent talk UK prime minister Gordon Brown made at the always-fascinating TED conference. He starts out talking about the power of the Internet, connecting us all with communication, enabling us to develop a global ethic, then listing some of the major problems we have had to deal with and those we still are, and the tools needed to solve them.

Do you think that global institutions will save the day? Do you think we can manage to work together in the way that it looks like we must? Add you comments, please.
