Academy Award-winner Richard Dreyfuss asks his young audience to consider what it means to be revolutionary. By reminding us that America, at its inception, was an idea -- and a revolutionary one at that -- Dreyfuss makes an impassioned plea to young people to learn all they can about the democratic system -- and ultimately improve upon it.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
