In the course of the presentation, Korten touches on a diverse range of interrelated issues such as peak oil, climate change, green economics and democracy.
"Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States, the administration in power in Washington, DC invaded Afghanistan, began a campaign to build support for an invasion of Iraq, and spoke openly of a U.S. policy of using the full power of U.S. military forces to impose imperial order on the world. These actions made overt a larger imperial agenda and triggered recognition of the extent to which contemporary relationships between people and nations are shaped by the same dominator patterns that became established with the rise of the first empires in the Tigris Euphrates and Nile river valleys some 5,000 years ago."
