I would love to get inspired but my office computer lacks the technology to access the video. So, in a few sentences, what is he telling us?

well its a TED lecture a therefore worth watching anyways but heres the blurb from the site

"Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for "practical wisdom" as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world"

basically he argues for a return to common sense
