Google Video the "Clash of Civilizations" or Moral Revolution?
Author Robert Wright gives a brilliant talk of "grim inspiration" about history's arrow - progress in the modern world toward moral truth and the unfolding apocalypse known as the "Clash of Civilization" between Islam and the West and the possible death-spiral of negativity.
Wright warns that our unwillingness to understand one another, as in
the clash between the Muslim world and the West, will lead to all of us
losing the "game."
Wright's most recent book, Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny, discusses morality by examining ways in which it is interwoven into the very pattern of evolutionary history.
