Post the Income Inequality TED talk already

      The Other 98%

We can't believe we even have to say this: deciding not to post this talk is infinitely more political an act than posting it would have been.

Stop reinforcing plutocracy by default and post the talk, or lose all your credibility as an open space for bold ideas.

Need context for what we're talking about? Check this out.

    2. Halfways Towards Victory - Watch the vid that was too hot for TED to handle

      After a firestorm of online pressure -- including 15,000 of your signatures - TED has partially relented, and dumped onto a non-TED YouTube account Nick Hanauer's talk on how to fix the economy by taxing the rich.

      Though they have yet to give it full TED honors and post it to their own site, now we can at least see it for ourselves, and ask: this is the video TED called too "explicitly partisan" and "unconvincing"?

      Do YOU find it "explicitly partisan" and "unconvincing"? Tell us what you think.

      Justice before peace. Ted, you just shot the chance for peace and justice IN THE BACK. If you have no guts, I had thought you might have a heart.,

      The fact that many rich persons don't like to be taxed is not sufficient reason for censorship. Or is it blackmail?
