I have a vision of the world as a global village, a world without boundaries. Imagine a history teacher making history!
Global military spending levels constitute an unconscionable use of resources and remain at an all-time high, reaching a total of USD 1.75 trillion in 2012, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.alfred de zayas
Global poverty is an "input" on the supply side; the Global economic system feeds on cheap labor.
Megalomania is the occupational disease of Global victors, unless controlled by fear.Eric (John Ernest) Hobsbawm
I accept that climate change is a challenge, I accept the broad theory about Global warming. I am sceptical about a lot of the more gloomy predictions.john howard
We simply must do everything we can in our power to slow down Global warming before it is too late... The science is clear. The Global warming debate is over.Arnold Schwarzenegger
Global warming. every day i leave my house and think, "was it this hot last year?" the heat this summer here in LA and in most of the US has been unbearable. i can't remember another time when it was 105 degrees fahrenheit out here (40.5 celsius), and that's the kind of weather we've been having pretty much every day.mike shinoda
His fiction – radical, satirical, polyvalent, sexually courageous, Global – extended the mainstream novel, and led it somewhere else. Still not fully recognized, he was one of Britain's greatest late-twentieth-century writers.angus wilson
Truth has been relegated to subjectivity; beauty has been subjugated to the beholder; and as millions are idiotized night after night, a Global commune has been constructed with the arts enjoying a totalitarian rule.ravi zacharias
"[American exceptionalism] is a reaction to the inability of people to understand Global complexity or important issues like American energy dependency. Therefore, they search for simplistic sources of comfort and clarity. And the people that they are now selecting to be, so to speak, the spokespersons of their anxieties are, in most cases, stunningly ignorant."zbigniew brzezinski
The Soviet Union has long been proposing to outlaw chemical weapons, to remove them from the arsenals of states. We are prepared for resolution of this problem either on a Global basis or piece by piece. As one of the first steps the USSR and the other socialist countries proposed in January 1984 that agreement be reached on ridding Europe of all types of chemical weapons.konstantin chernenko
Geographically, the Global economy is now multi-polar , as new centres of production have emerged in parts of what had been, historically, the periphery of the world economy. The world is now more accurately described as a 'mosaic of unevenness in a continual state of flux'.peter dicken
Gore Vidal, the American writer, once described the American economic system as ‘free enterprise for the poor and socialism for the rich’. Macroeconomic policy on the Global scale is a bit like that. It is Keynesianism for the rich countries and monetarism for the poor.ha-joon chang
We should have been there shoulder to shoulder with our allies. Our concern is the instability of our government as an ally. We are playing again with national and Global security matters.stephen harper
The world is a complex, interconnected, finite, ecological–social–psychological–economic system . We treat it as if it were not, as if it were divisible, separable, simple, and infinite. Our persistent, intractable Global problems arise directly from this mismatch.donella meadows
On the unfalsifiable theory of Global warming:"Evidence that contradicts the Global warming theory, climate kooks enlist as evidence for the correctness of their theory; every permutation in weather patterns warm or cold is said to be a consequence of that warming or proof of it.ilana mercer
This test has much in common with the other great challenges that are defining this young century -- from weapons proliferation, to the spread of disease, to transnational terrorism. These are truly Global problems, and no one nation, no matter how much power or political will it possesses, can succeed alone. We all need partners, and we all need to work in concert.condoleezza rice
In the 1990's, a time of corporate capital's Global ascendancy, the mildest restraints on its prerogatives have been peremptorily rejected. Automatically, under this designation, measures to protect national cultural industries, for example, have been ruled unacceptable infringements of "free trade".herbert schiller
Recent researchers in artificial intelligence and computational methods use the term swarm intelligence to name collective and distributed techniques of problem solving without centralized control or provision of a Global model. ... the intelligence of the swarm is based fundamentally on communication. ... the member of the multitude do not have to become the same or renounce their creativity in order to communicate and cooperate with each other. They remain different in terms of race, sex, sexuality and so forth. We need to understand, then, is the collective intelligence that can emerge from the communication and cooperation of such varied multiplicity.
With the market so much more in control of the Global economy now than fifty years ago, then if economists are right, the world should be a manifestly better place: it should be growing faster, with more stability, and income should go to those who deserve it.
The collapse of the Global marketplace would be a traumatic event with unimaginable consequences. Yet I find it easier to imagine than the continuation of the present regime.
Instead of increasing intra-European harmony and Global peace, the shift to EMU and the political integration that would follow it would be more likely to lead to increased conflicts within Europe.
The level and extent of Global interest in Gross National Happiness in the wake of the General Assembly resolution and the Bhutan-sponsored High Level Meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York on April 2, 2012 have been truly astounding and inspiring as well as deeply humbling. Some of the finest minds in the world today are engaged in exploring and understanding the scope and sweep of this revolutionary ideal of human well-being and societal progress.
When the responses elicited by the Epic of Evolution are gathered together several religious principles emerge that I can believe, serve as a framework for a Global Ethos
Canada is today the most successful pluralist society on the face of our globe, without any doubt in my mind.... That is something unique to Canada. It is an amazing Global human asset.
Uh... Global warming... and corporate America...
Well, I'm going Global! Local service may be fine for timid creatures like yourself, but I'm challenging the big guys! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm due to be on a panel!
