Ted Turner: A Radical Recommendation

December 7, 2010 at 4:49 pm Leave a comment

The next speaker, Ted Turner, is also no stranger to controversy.  In typical no-holds-barred style, Ted made a radical recommendation for getting rid of war: “Let women run the planet for the next 100 years”.

He says:

“If only women could serve in public office for 100 years, we would very quickly have a society that wasn’t buying aircraft carriers and submarines and instead was putting money toward health and education.  We’d have a safer, better society in short order.”

Another bold prediction: “We will get rid of nuclear weapons in my lifetime.”

Finally, he drew a big laugh from the crowd in addressing his views of men vs. women: “I’m kinda pro-people… I am one.”
