Maria Birdsong. It’s a TED Talk. Fifteen minutes.
Our search for the cure for poverty ignores the simple fact that bosses, for the most part, are full of themselves. They think their role is to “fix” the people who are capable of being fixed. It is a sad and limiting view of human potential.
Masculinity is in the worst state of decline I have seen in my life, and I’m old. Men are, for the most part, not men these days. They are silent and obedient.
I admire people who have been killed for their courage. Consider Mahatma Gandhi, John Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King. I fear simply being ignored. I have a lot to learn.
This talk summarizes my message to the world.
