Fascinated by two questions:
1) In a world in which almost all societies and cultures have been designed and managed by men to suppress the powers and talents of women so men won't be threatened, why and how are some men completely comfortahble with powerful women -- even married to women with more wealth and power than themselves.
2) In a world in which multinational corporations regulate sovereign nations, rather than the other way around, how can NGO's solidify their ad hoc status as corporate regulators.
I am also fascinated by religion. More on that in the posts.
