3 Poverty Poverty

We can sympathise them, but not empathise. - Ananya

This should me miles higher than drug abuse.

4 Animal Abuse

I think no one should abuse animals under there anger and issues.

Torture and slaughter of animals is evil, yet no one seems to realize that. It needs to stop. The sooner the better

The answer to most of our world problems revolves around the USE of animal for our personal need.

5 Pollution

If we don't save the enviorment, there will be no drugs to abuse (some drugs are made from plants) we will have to deal with NO population, everyone will be in poverty, and all the other things on this list will get ten times worst. We will all die along with the other living things, and the earth will become uninhabitable. - ToptenPizza

I think the pollution in this world is appalling and it should be acted on fast as it could have an impact on so much stuff. Keep in note when your stuck in traffic turn your engine off! Simple things like that can change this problem! Seriously

I'll be dead B4 it matters - EliHbk

it is bad

6 Population Growth Population Growth

Well, we have enough food. We have more than enough food for all of the people on earth... If we gave the grains we grew to PEOPLE instead of to farm animals. And the water we spent on growing food for farm animals, the water problem would be solved also.

But yes its true, the more people there are, the less of everything else there is! And that's catastrophic! - keycha1n

But the farm animals provide food for us as well. Maybe an even balance? - Satire

This is really the main, and by far the biggest problem in the world today.
Many things like climate change, lack of food, polluted water, and resource depletion would vanish almost overnight.
Even many wars which are about resources would end immediately.
If the earth's population were 2 billion instead of 7 billion, the overwhelming majority of today's issues would not exist.

It's sad but I agree. There are too many people who don't and can't have enough and its detrimental to continue to add to the population so rapidly. Of course, if those who selfishly own so much for themselves or to save so future generations of their family will also be wealthy would just share with those who are here and In need...
He sounds like a socialist or communist or something! - Billyv

The picture says it all to be honest! This world is struggling and no offense to anyone but I don’t see why the main priority in this world is to have loads of children, fine go ahead have loads and loads of children but keep in mind it’s not good for the world.

7 Racism

The word carries less meaning than ever before, and at the same time, the most! - EliHbk

Mostly, the WORD racism! - EliHbk

Racism in 21st century...Pathetic. - Ananya

Racism is horrible!

It is getting better though, Black people used to be wiped for the complexion of there skin! I think enslaving black people, due to there skin complexion, is one of the worst things the human race has done to itself.

8 Unemployment

Very difficult problem, how you live without money - belarbi

I need a jon

9 Sexism

Sexism is not just being targeted to women, but men too. I have recently watched a social experiment consisting of a woman abusing a man & people just sitting there & laughing, but when the man stood up for himself, the same people previously laughing then got up & started yelling at him for standing up for himself. It sickened me. I do support equal rights for both genders but the feminazis have pushed it to far. They are pretty much a man-hating group at this point. There were videos of a woman accusing a man of sexual harassment because he said "hello". There was also another one of a woman yelling "rape" after a police officer arrested her after she refused to get out of a car. Sexism affects both genders. It must stop.

Sexism isn't just against women. Some feminists are so retarded that it reflects poorly on themselves. It goes both ways just like racism. So when people comment "girls rule" it just sounds retarded. - Merggy

Why are women being up down just because they are female. For a fact I know that females are the same as males they shouldn't be put down for their gender. people always say ohh you wouldn't manage to do that because you're too weak. I know that I am not weak its just loads of people have the audacity to bring one another down.

It is wrong and terrible

10 Climate Change

Ok, everything on this list deserves to be here; but in terms of an all encompassing, long term, might destroy the entire human race type of problem, climate change is the worst. Poverty, drug abuse, and war are devastating to individuals, families, and nations, but this could end the world as we know it. Climate change won't kill us all soon, but a few generations from now, our decedents will be cursing the fact that we did nothing.

Should be number 1 no doubt. I'd rather be called a racist/sexist than called someone who doesn't care about the environment. It is so important. People don't realize it. WE NEED TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AT ALL COSTS FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS AND FOR THE WELL BEING OF THE PLANET! GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEADS!

Why don't people realise that this is a huge scam made to tax the life out of people? NONE of the ludicrous predictions have come true, the people behind this have been revealed to be the biggest hypocrites ever and they were also caught tampering data! Also, stuff is being done. That's why funding is being pumped into renewables. - AGK

This is something we need to change now! the world needs us to change and climate change is something some people do not care about but its happening and we need to stop it not soon but now.This is our future don't let our future down

The Contenders

11 Feminism

Modern feminism is just a problem now, not a solution

Pfft, get over it (jk, don't stab me) - EliHbk



13 Secret Organizations

I think that is fair

14 Liberalism

I am part liberal, but some people have just pushed it. All I want is peace across America, which of course is not possible.

Liberalism is the cause of most of the other issues listed on here

15 Globalism

Globalism is all about protecting the world we live in. If we don't protect it, then why bother with all of those other things. This should be #1, before Climate Change, or Pulverize, because the World, the Earth, the Globe, is the place we live in and should be our main priority.

16 Refugees

Refugees around the world need help.

17 Cultural Marxism

The gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. - StealthRUSH

18 Severe Income Disparity

Causing homelessness and suffering in the USA while so many shower themselves with unneccessary luxuries. Indulging in a little pleasure is fine and healthy but excess is more the norm even among those who consider themselves righteous. - Billyv

19 Political Correctness


Political correctness is so extreme that it’s taken over society. We can’t say anything without anyone thinking of us as horrible people. In my opinion it’s one of the worst aspects of the world. What’s next, are they going to control the way we think too?

20 Zionism
