TED: Bhutan’s Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay

This is an inspirational 19 minutes. Politicians are not all cut from the same cloth…. No matter who we are, how big or small, we have choices about the values we live by and we can make a difference.

This is also a useful rebuttal for those who say these values are unrealistic or unachievable (an odd viewpoint, with the underlying message that it is somehow realistic/needful to use several planet’s worth of resources each year, like a person sawing through the plank that is supporting their weight). The truth is our realities are calling upon us to make radical changes, and change of that nature is frightening – although seldom as frightening as the consequences of not making it.
