I think this phrase from Doctor Who really sums up the discussion/concept elegantly: Y.A.N.A. (You Are Not Alone)


Expanding upon this concept are TEDtalkers who have spoken more elegantly the points I would like to emphasize:

-Individual choices are fine and dandy; however, this obsession can hinder progress (Renata Salecl):


-Government made of politicians can be less expensive and more efficient with collective action; people are resources, if you are willing to interact with them (Jennifer Pahlka):


-Collective action is easier than ever now, so can people do anything now? (Gordon Brown):


-So, will things happen now?(Joi Ito):
