Protecting the status quo? Dictating conformity? Why does Ted bring all these people together for these talks, then ban some of them?
TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today
shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independent TEDx events
help share ideas in communities around the world.
"Ideas worth spreading" and seems like some ideas that are not worth spreading. This thread is to enlighten those who have never heard of TED
talks or Tedx and a view of 3 ted talks that were banned or not listed on there list of speeches.
On the surface Ted seems like a great idea, but is it just another system of control?
TED is a powerful and paradigm shattering initiative that brands itself with the slogan “Ideas worth spreading.” At this point, we have
probably all heard of TED and the short talks given by inspiring people from all around the world to audiences at different conferences. These talks
can range in subject and have included science, politics, entrepreneurship, consciousness, cosmology, inventions and more. As TED’s popularity grew,
TEDx talks sprung up around the globe which gave a less moderated voice to inspiring people. As a result, TED has been involved in controversy as they
chose to censor various talks they deemed worthy of their censorship. The issue is, these talks are of great importance and TED’s decision to censor
them reveals their interest in preserving their own brand while not getting in trouble with the ‘big wigs.’ Here are the talks TED felt were
‘Ideas not worth spreading.’
I'm not posting the third video as it could violate the t&c of ATS but if you wish its easy enough to find and look at and I urge you to see it, but
as in most things censorship is yet another way of stifling discussions that should be had... if your concerned about truth that is.
I have watched countless Ted Talks videos and I'd be interested in checking these out but it would help tons if you could provide a summery of each
video so readers can decide which video(s) to spend our time on. Thanks in advance.
I'm about half way through the second video and I would recommend it personally. It speaks about science and how it relates to belief systems. He goes
on to talk at depth at what he considers the 10 dogmas of science. Thanks for sharing.

Ok, first one the gentleman is telling the relation between consumers and business owners. His point is to tax the rich to invest in the middle and
lower classes to benefit everyone.
The second is a research scientist talking about the overall flaws in the scientific dogma of the currant times. His point is that the questioning of
these dogmas will open up science again and a new scientific age will begin.
I found the both of these videos enlightening, and I have no idea why these would be censored. It's really nothing new, but comes from intellectuals
and is very simply put.
