Edward de Bono's weekly message: Positive Gangs

There is a real need to design a framework for 'positive gangs'. Youngsters joining such gangs would get the same significance and achievement satisfaction of the usual negative gangs (crime etc). The effect on society would, however, be positive rather than negative.

I would therefore welcome a list of practical suggestions as to what such positive gangs could do. How could members of the gang get a real sense of achievement while their actions benefitted society?

Interview with Edward de Bono

The Times of Malta has a lengthy interview with Edward de Bono in which he suggests some novel solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, illegal immigration, and the worldwide economic crisis. The piece is really quite good.
