It’s Time We Take a Closer Look at America’s Three Favorite Words: Freedom, Liberty, and Democracy

It’s Time We Take a Closer Look at America’s Three Favorite Words: Freedom, Liberty, and Democracy Freedom, liberty, democracy… these words are used so often that we give them little real thought, rarely holding them up to the realities of what we see around us. What do these words really mean? Do they currently exist for us to celebrate as we appear to think they do? And if not, is there anything we can do about it? Let’s take a…

Chile National Festival

Chile National Festival

For me the festival has been an enriching experience – an opportunity arisen through the teachings of the teachers. An opportunity wrapped up as a present that I hope to be able to share with people to continue promoting the Dharma. The festival has been very, very deep. I am impressed by how Gen-la can touch our hearts even though these are teachings we may have heard many times before. So taken with lots of blessings, but principally with how…

Malta – A Thriving Nation

Malta – A Thriving Nation

7,000 years of history make Malta what it is today. It’s a proud past, a past of rich treasures, but not a hidden past. Malta is a place that likes to welcome people and show off its glories; and what a spectacle they are. The legacy of the Knights of St. John is everywhere. The Knights came from the wealthiest families across Europe, and their heritage shines brightly today, from Baroque palaces to herculean fortifications. The capital, Valletta, is deservedly…

TEDxXavierSchool – Tony Meloto – Building homes, building lives, building nations

Today, we talk about innovation and tradition. But I am more innovation than tradition especially in a country like the Philippines where we don’t really know who we are because we are just in the process of defining ourselves. Three hundred years in the convent as people say and 50 years in Hollywood, we are the most confused people in the planet. And now, we’re seeing that together with other emerging countries in the world, we’re starting to define ourselves….

CAPITALISM Provides More OPPORTUNITY than SOCIALISM

CAPITALISM Provides More OPPORTUNITY than SOCIALISM

– Hello there and welcome to the Unleash Your Greatness Within podcast. I’m TJ Hoisington, and I have a message for you today around the concept of CAPITALISM. Yes, the “free enterprise system,” and I know that probably sounds a little different than some of the podcast episodes I’ve done in the past, but I think it’s timely today. And you know what? I actually have a speech that I gave in a competition in high school where I spoke…

Meritocracy | Very Important Docs¹⁵

Meritocracy | Very Important Docs¹⁵

OBAMA: The premise that we’re all created equal is the opening line in the American story. And while we don’t promise equal outcomes, we have strived to deliver equal opportunity — the idea that success doesn’t depend on being born into wealth or privilege, it depends on effort and merit. And with every chapter we’ve added to that story, we’ve worked hard to put those words into practice. PETER: And the award for most simultaneously naive yet vaguely sinister statement…
