This TED Talk, "Did the Global Response to 9/11 Make Us Safer?" by Benedetta Berti examines her thoughts on how we provide sustainable security in our country. This is a great talk to use when looking at our national security, steps that we need to take in the name of safety, and how we have changed since the events of September 11th.
Fron TED: "If we want sustainable, long-term security to be the norm in the world, it's time to radically rethink how we can achieve it, says TED Fellow and conflict researcher Benedetta Berti. In an eye-opening talk, Berti explains how building a safer world has a lot less to do with crushing enemies on the battlefield and a lot more to do with protecting civilians -- no matter where they're from or where they live."
This is a talk that I use as an opener in my class. The talk is just under 8 minutes in length and the worksheet has 8 questions. An answer key has been provided for your convenience. It would be great to use in a U.S. History, Government, or Civics course.
