My hometown and most favorite city on the planet….
Chicago is on the forefront of the “Makers” movement. John Carpenter from the Chicago Tribune’s Blue Sky Innovation section joined Patti Vasquez to talk about the “Makers” culture in Chicago:[audio http://cdn.tribtv.com/wgnam/podcasts/pattivasquez/PV-JohnCarpenter-051214.mp3]
In 1981, I met a graduate student at Kansas State University sponsored by the government of Pakistan for advanced studies in agriculture. How do you feel about the culture, society, freedom of press and diversity in the United States? I asked. Without hesitation, he replied, it is like living in Ocean vs. well.
Since then, it has not changed much in Pakistan, Middle East, Africa and other parts of world. Off course, few more humans have become billionaires but billions people have not able to break the thick layers of brick walls of wells to join the progressive societies. Actually, ruling and religious classes with their dominant ideology, are even building thicker walls with manifestation of false ideology around them, so, becoming more isolated and lost in the outdated rituals.
People within these societies are truly fed up and frustrated with their never ending struggle to be free from false ideological conception, so, there emotions are being ignited by any type of external assault or threat to burn their own frustration through protests which are not logically coherent. It only provides a greater opportunity for exploitation, violence and riots to extremist, fundamentalist and crime lords.
