jimmy carterGlobal X was in Atlanta recently, where he interviewed Jimmy Carter, who likes to describe himself as “a husband, the father of four children, grandfather of 11 and now great grandfather of one, head of the Carter Center for the past 25 years. And yes, former President of the United States!”

President Carter tells us what he saw in a small village in Ghana, and why he made the decision to eradicate the Guinea worm from our planet. Results so far: 99.7% accomplished!

He hopes that the US will become again the champion of peace (not of pre-emptive wars), the champion of human rights and preeminent in its dedication to justice. And he thinks that each of us can exemplify peace, justice, truth and humanity: “The most powerful people in a democracy are individuals.”
