A good topic

Rather than leave it up to political leaders to set the tone on how we want our society to be run, it is the people within the society who really run the show. The problem is that most people don't think that they can make a difference. Most businesses focus on profit rather then community involvement. Tying business into developing our children and delivering positive experiences at an early age can offset many negative ideas that spring up when young people are neglected, abused or feel that there is no hope. This would have a positive impact on our future as freedom, democracy and a true spirit of a world community of practice would eliminate the forces of terror that have gripped the world today. On one hand, never have so few had such a great impact than the ability of a group of individuals to collectively murder 4,000 people as on 9/11. Why can't so many have more of an impact on the greater good? The motivation is to not allow a climate of hate prevail in a world where the overwhelming majority of people want to live in peace with each other. Thomas L. Friedman correctlyt focuses on the importance of winning in Irag, not a military victory, but an ideological victory based on principles that are not owned by the U.S. but by all of...us.

If there is one person out there who truly gets the importance in focusing on our future, it is Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times. Before I go any further with this site and go into detail about the impact that a world community of practice can have on the world, I would like to know if there are others who agree with Mr. Friedman's premise that the world is flat and that the U.S. needs to adjust our focus before we are passed as an economic force by countries like India and China?
