Global?

i am attending TEDglobal at oxford

first thoughts are that the world is not so global

gordon brown claims we are at the beginning of an age where we care about a person around the world as much as a person in our own country

i find that difficult to believe

‘the poor of your own city first’ seems like a universal value to me

on the lighter side, if the world is so global, how come the faucets here still have 2 taps, one for hot water and one for cold?

One Response to “Global?”

  1. JJK Says:

    the difference between you and Gordon Brown is that you live in a country with a strong sense of identity (Israel) and he lives in a country that has lost its identity.
    will be interested to hear whether TED is worth attending.
