FutureHistorian.tv Ironically, for 108 years now Hindus and Muslim have faced the same systemic challenge and networked round the same solution ideas. So have friends of Nelson Mandela,: Consider Japan , Next Capitalism, Beyond Capitalism, Inclusive Capitalism , Entrepreneurial Revolution of Net Generation's Millennial Goals ... Jim Kim #2030now and world bank 28 may exposing phony capitalism
Back in 1906, Gandhi who found no market for a Bar of London Barrister in Mumbai was working in South Africa when he got thrown out of a first class train carriage for having the wrong colored skin. His Aha - the profession British Barristers rule top-down with is accidentally destroying the sustainability of communities and peoples with the least. A whole new education system will need to be built if youth are ever to free themselves from the impacts of compounding such dis-trust and unsustainable society. This he was to build with maria Montessori (before spending 20 years challenging my grandfather as chief justice of Mumbai to help write up the legalese of India's Independence). Unfortunately, Gandhi did not get his wish to see this constitution freed across the whole continent. It would take another quarter of a century before Bangladesh finally freed its own people to start up the poorest nation and 100 million populace on the planet.
Fortunately the bureaucratic government had so littel resources that it left schooling of villagers to grassroots mothers networks. They invested their whole lives in their childrens upbringing celebrating village schools that would have made Gandhi and Montessori proud.Unfortunately by 2000, higher education everywhere had lost the freedom to help students create jobs entrepreneurially. So that's why #2030now youth everywhere face the same challenges as 168 years of Gandhi's , Mandela's and Yunus's -

Jim Kim, President of The World Bank, raises his voice and the temperature
on structural discrimination in Uganda targeting homosexuals through
opinion pieces in the Washington Post. Thanks to those for sharing offline.
"These recent anti-gay laws, and many others that have been on the books
for years, are acutely ironic. Just 15 years ago, a small band of gay men
and women -- largely in the United States but also in Europe and parts of
Africa -- fought with all their intellect, energy and creativity to expand
access to treatment for all people with HIV/AIDS. In 2000, just 50,000
people in the developing world received AIDS treatment. Today, largely
thanks to the work of these gay activists and others, more than 10 million
people are being treated with AIDS drugs -- most of them African.
At the World Bank Group, we will have a full internal discussion over the
coming months about discrimination more broadly and how it would affect our
projects and our gay and lesbian staff members. My view is that the fight
to eliminate all institutionalized discrimination is an urgent task.
After all, the bottom line is clear: Eliminating discrimination is not only
the right thing to do; it's also critical to ensure that we have sustained,
balanced and inclusive economic growth in all societies -- whether in
developed or developing nations, the North or the South, America or
Munk has written a book on the subject called The Idealist. Its the story of the brightest young man's conflict. In 4 countries he applied what harvard macroeconomcs had taught him starting with 100% belief in perfection of the rules- and then wildly zig-zagging round his own errors - If you live in Bolivia, Poland, Russia or one of Sach's (120 million dollar funded) millennium villages you may want to read what happens when someone applies academic certainty instead of entrepreneurial exploration.
