Bestselling author Thomas Friedman discusses what September 11th means for the world in this streaming video lecture provided by FORA.tv. First outlining who the 9/11 hijackers were, Friedman argues that many of these educated young men were disillusioned by the incongruity between Mideast poverty and the West's rampant affluence. Friedman feels that as a religion, Islam is now at a turning point where it can either follow Osama Bin Laden's lead and stay aggressively static, or evolve to meet the reality of a world where belief systems must reside together in a global community. Though recorded just a year after 9/11, Friedman accurately predicts the pitfalls the U.S. would later face when conducting their war on terror, and the massive influence the internet has had in democratizing the Middle East.
