We’re at a unique moment in history, says UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown: we can use today’s interconnectedness to develop our shared global ethic — and work together to confront the challenges of poverty, security, climate change and the economy.
Yesterday, Gordon Brown made an incredible speech at TEDGlobal 2009. For a world leader to talk about technology, global consciousness and global ethics in the way that he did, was truly an impressive sight and completely out of the realm of standard political rhetoric. I am truly in awe of his intelligence, understanding and compassion and am very hopeful for the vision that he illustrates in this speech. Please watch it and pass it on.
