“The Fourth Estate is a recognition of human identity in the face of global connectivity and the responsibility that flows from it. It is a blueprint for the future founded on humanity’s bold endeavor to seek a more perfect peace, a more perfect unity, and a more honest expression of success.”

2011 marked a change in our world. Discontent with current systems and government inadequacies, there have been distinct worldwide advancements toward equality. Of course it still remains early in the establishment of these changes, but the idealism that comes with youth has us all hoping for a better future. The efforts of the Occupy movement were aided and organized through this newly connected world. The demonstrations and protests in the Arab nations were initiated and sustained because of technical connectivity, and the support of world that knew and cared.
This is my question to you: Because we live on the same planet, in an interconnected world, are we responsible for the mistreated and abused? Or is it more important and logical to focus on national interest? Are their problems ours? Should we not just focus on ourselves? Why or why not? Will an equal social and economic standing even make people happy?
Discuss. Be respectful, be honest, and be friends.
