TED talks like the one you posted definitely helps to make us more aware and therefore allowing us to pay more attention to what we're doing and what we're allowing into our heads, but let's be honest, is there really any escape or way to stop this ?!
I also suppose we're a self-selecting sample because who else watches TED talks? The message in the lecture won't be seen by anyone who isn't already sympathetic to the message. Ironic.
