    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...

    January 23, 2009 They were responsible for "five near-simultaneous bombings on December 30, 2000, which killed 22 people." On December 30, 2000, hardly anyone in the world understood the global threat of jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism. It wasn't until September 11, 2001, that large numbers of people woke up -- and seven and a half years after that, the new President of the United States promises to build relationships with the Islamic world based on "mutual respect," as if it has been on our side that the respect has been lacking. Well, in reality the respect is lacking from...

    Danone meets Muhammad Yunus Danone, one of the largest dairy food and water producers in the world, is forming a joint venture with Muhammad Yunus' Grameen Bank to form what Yunus calls a "social business enterprise."

Essentially, it is about creating a world where a companies performance is not only measured in terms of...
