Top Ten Problems In the World Today


The Top Ten

1 Poverty Poverty

The homeless people can't just get up and get a job, most jobs have standards that they aren't able to reach, like a home, experience, and sometimes, even, a car...

Individual situation all need complete investigation and help to get better!

Those homeless people and homeless animals deserve a better home!

Come on get a job your just lazy

2 War and Terrorism War and Terrorism

I think that wars shouldn't keep going om becouse I think everyone should live life and everyone should do what they want to do

Countries start wars and people die and more people are in poverty

This Sucks man

Not as big of a deal now Isis is nearly wiped out - Randomator

Nearly? I have the feeling that they are only getting stronger. - Userguy44

3 Drug Abuse Drug Abuse

Nothing wrong with taking. It's your own choice. Taking alcohol is just as worse and yet its sold everywhere. Taking sugar is also just as harmful and addictive yet it's marketed towards children which could very well be responsible to the high obesity rate in the US. Do your research about drugs, they aren't that harmful. Cheese is responsible for causing heart problems and diabetes, yet you don't see any ads telling you you should avoid eating it.

Who cares! If people wanna kill themselves with drugs, let them. It doesn't affect me. - Smash64

It is bad if you do it you are stooped and sick

A VERY terrible problem - Ananya

4 Climate Change Climate Change

This Is a very real issue

True I am going to do a project about it

True the weather sure changed lots the weather was probably better in like the 1980s or earlier - trains45

Unfortunately, people think this fake. - Userguy44

5 Animal Abuse

Animals WEREN'T created for torturing and all of the other abusive things that are inflicted on them. Animals are here to comfort us, to be there for us when no one else is, to help us through our hardships, to help us know what an honor it is to be able to enjoy the life that has been given to us, to appreciate the world around us. Instead of abusing and killing animals including wild animals, we should appreciate them and thank god for creating them because without animals this world would not be worth living in. Animals are understanding, kind, gentle, beautiful, and loving creatures. They do what they need to in order to survive just like people do. That's also why we need to stop cutting down the rain forests, killing endangered animals, killing any kind of animal for that matter. Because if animals start going extinct then there will be no home, no world for us to live in because all of the beauty will be gone. So WE ALL NEED TO STOP ABUSING ANIMALS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD ...more

People who abuse their pets for fun SHALL ROT IN HELL

This is completely wrong!

Stop PETA!

6 Disease

Is having the flu a dieses?

Even simple bacterial infections will soon become deadly again...we are down to only a handful of antibiotics that still be honest I'd be less scared of nuclear war. - emraldYE

This is worse than racism, sexism and dabbing. - Userguy44

Especially cancer - Randomator

7 Racism

This is one of the bad things happening around us, if we do not stop racism, we would have a big problem to our world, I certainly hope that everyone could just please accept people for who they are and what their beliefs are.

This is the saddest reality of world - sissy

Everyone is the same if they aren't hurting, killing, stealing, bullying then there's nothing wrong we all are human.

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

8 Population Growth Population Growth

Virtually every other problem listed would be lessened or totally solved if the population drops by 2/3. If the population keeps growing, none of them will be solved no matter what we do.

The emphasis on the "problem" of decreasing fertility is scary. We don't need more people in the world. Even national parks are already noisy and crowded. - emraldYE


Well in the age of vaccines and better medicine, people are having fewer babies so this should eventually even out, hopefully. - Stalin

9 Pollution

The world is basically getting murdered slowly by us humans! Do something! Don't just stand there and do nothing! We will be low on resources, that means, barely even food, etc. SAVE EARTH!

Pollution is basically what caused global warming. That's why we need to save the planet. For everyone who thinks global warming is fake, learn more about pollution. - Userguy44

Don't litter its that simple smh

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

10 Murder

If you manage to get away from this, there is god still watching, one thought I was crazy, I'm telling what my mind tells me

Sexism hurts people verbally. Murder literally kills people, so murder should be above sexism. - Userguy44

Why is dabbing higher than this? - DrayTopTens

Here are the examples:

December 10, 2019: 6 people were killed in a hate crime involved shooting in Jersey City, New Jersey.

2/14/2018: 17 people shot dead by Nikolas Cruz in Parkland, Florida

June 12, 2016: Omar Mateen shoots down 49 individuals at a Florida LGBT nightclub before the police shot him dead.

January 8, 2011: 6 victims dead including the judge at a Safeway store in Tuscon, Arizona.


The Newcomers

? Immaturity
? Pseudo-Maturity

The Contenders

11 Sexism

It's horrible! Should NOT be allowed in the first place!

This should be higher than racism. In some places women don't have even the most basic rights. - emraldYE

Very very rude

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.

12 Raping

Carry pepper spray

I had to deal with this..

It's one of the hardest things to have to live with after it happens to you, and knowing that the person who ruined your life is living like nothing happened while you try to figure out how to feel normal again.

It is wrong

13 Unemployment Unemployment

Id know all about that youtube was not nice to me and it took many moons of hard work to reach those high note lets just says I was that guy in the barrel a couple of times too many. go check out my youtube videos please @burtothebestoutube- russel

Very difficult problem, how you live without money - belarbi

I need a jon

14 Liberalism

No not a problem, to what Randomator said - Luckys

At least liberals aren't climate denying moneyholics. - Smash64

Looks like you guys watch too much Fox News... - ----------

"libtards" -Ben shapiro

15 Feminism

Not to be rude but most feminist are like "Oh we want the advantages men have but not the disadvantages" that itself is stupid.

Not all working women will become pregnant.
There is a pay gap you just want women to be lower class.

Depends. Only extreme feminists are bad. - Userguy44

The Wage Gap is as fake as Kim Kardashian's butt - Maddox121

16 Technology

Technology getting better or worst depends what it is - trains45

I believe that technology is very helpful in many ways~ it entertains us, makes things more convenient (buying things online), and you are able to get calculations quicker as well as getting some important information from the internet on search engines such as Google.

It's benefited the World and it scrambled the World! As well - JohnPierre88

It changes the way that people think. our kids are addicted to their screens playing murderous video games for hours on end.

17 Global Warming

Yeah I remember hearing about the ice melting in the north pole area in science class probably gets smaller every year - trains45

People don't believe in it, there was this poll on this website asking if you believe in global warming and 24 percent said no and comments were saying how global warming is bs - Luckys

This is affecting the whole world. - Userguy44

It is affect ing the animals

18 Religious Fundamentalists

They are the profound evil of our times

19 Zionism

USrael is the main reason (maybe only) for all the wars in the world right now...! - Xenothor

Zionism? you mean the only country in the whole area with actual democracy? , you mean the one constantly attacked by all neighboring country's and has to constantly defend its citizens and then answer back to all the garbage they get from the media? I'm muslim and I think israel is the only civil country in the middle east.

China Bangla Business Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Yiwu

USrael is the biggest problem on earth

20 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

21 Violence


Why is dabbing above this?

Can't imagine that people like violence. - Userguy44

22 Refugees

Refugess should be aloud in the United States, especially if there is a disease or war going on in their country.

Refugees around the world need help.

23 Totalitarianism
24 Youth Oppression

I don't know what that means

This is important

25 Secret Organizations


About what?

Delicious illuminati

I think that is fair

26 Political Correctness

Let us not forget 'manspreading' the heinous act of men sitting with their legs slightly open. - Stalin

It needs to die - Randomator


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?

27 Existentialism
28 Government Power

It is

29 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


They the worst, hopefully they never attack usa or canada, or other good countries they haven't attacked - trains45

Pretty much wiped out now - Randomator

ISIS that horrible terrorist group has been terrorising places like Syria. Let's hope ISIS can be defeated

Wish they would dissapear forever. - Userguy44

31 Globalism

Without the ecosystems we wouldn’t survive period point blank, this should be #1

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.

32 Teen Depression

Talk to your children more often

No one, as well as teens, deserve to be depressed!

Very good Kanye

I mean it will at least help bring population down.

33 Postmodernism

Boo- Jordan Peterson

34 Obesity

Obesity isn't something you can control some people gain weight and can't lose it. Don't make there self-esteem lower, they are still people just like us. Learn to accept the fact that some people are different no one is the same people who suffer from obesity don't ask for it, show respect for the people who are out there working hard trying to lose weight, some people can't lose the weight but they try so hard just to make people who talk about them or say mean things about them stop saying them. People have feelings it genuinely hurts people to the point where they self harm and can actually kill themselves because of what people are saying about them. Just be kind because you don't know what people are going through. Words hurt and can't be forgotten remember that next time.

I'm a skinny legend - Luckys

Want an easy solution? Eat healthy and exercise - Randomator

But on a positive note, they will die sooner

35 Black Lives Matter

What about the rest? - Misfire

Not all of them are bad. - RoseWeasley

All lives matter - sissy

All lives matter, not just the African Americans. Caucasian, Asian, Hispanic, African, every life matters.

36 Bad Music

Yeah some songs today aren't the best in my opinion - trains45

It's not a problem, my gosh. People should be able to listen to what they want. - Luckys

Not a big problem. Why do people act like music is the most important thing ever? Okay I really like music too, but is todays rap and pop music that big of a problem. A good advice that you ignore it and listen to the music you like. Much bigger problems are war, diseases, drunk driving, drugs, extreme feminists, SJWS, terrorism etc. - Userguy44


37 Teenage Pregnancy

Get pregnant after marriage - Luckys

I'm a girl and I'm not pregnant so shut it we aren't that bad

I always have wondered how this can happen. Anyway, this isn't a world problem! - Userguy44

Yeah it’s bad because it leads to abortion which is one of the worst crimes humans can do - Randomator

38 Stupidity

No, we just need to educate them so that there a less stupid people in the world, you can't raise a person's ability to learn but you can raise their understanding of the learning.

I agree

We need to obliterate stupid people.

39 Pornography

It's great and an amazing stress reliever and contrary to others beliefs it doesn't raise expectations of sex however it can help to educate and make sexual encounters more enjoyable for both parties

No it's a hobby and a great thing and it helps against prostate cancer

This distracts so many teenagers today as a form of escape from their daily chores and makes them unproductive. I don't know why people don't categorize this as addiction because it is a big addiction they have.

Porn makes so many expectations for women..

40 Mass Shootings

Stop selling guns period

So many shootings I heard about in the 2010s it really heartbreaking every time - trains45

41 Gun Control

Don't sell guns periodt

This is a US problem - Randomator

Who added this? - MrCoolC

42 Facism

Trump is Honeyspotting the Dumb Ones

your silly

43 Drunk Driving

This a bad idea I once had a sad school assembly movie showing what could happen when drinking and driving was sad, I remember it made me cry after it was over, it was a really depressing movie - trains45

Don't drink and drive youll spill your drink

These people have caused thousands of deaths - Randomator

44 Video Game Fanbases
45 Social Justice Warriors

Terrible people - Randomator

46 Earthquakes

Earthquakes are the worst I remember a few bad ones that happened in 2010s with japan in 2011, nepal in 2015 and others - trains45

Yes, but we can't ask mother nature to stop. - Userguy44

47 Ungrateful People
48 Muslim Population Growth

So what if people dislike other race and religion. It's their opinion!

Who the hell put this here? I''m guessing that you think it's because of terrorism? Wow, such dumb people you are. Terrorism doesn't define any muslim at all! Not one single muslim would agree to terrorism! You need to get some facts before you start to say some false things

49 Illegal Immigration

They are okay if they are refugees. - XxembermasterxX

Get this higher! #buildthewall - Randomator

50 Child Abuse Child Abuse

You abusing a child verbally and physically is wrong and is affecting their lives on a daily. Plus what is the point of abusing a child?

Child abuse is the worst it was the worst when daddyofive was on youtube abusing his kids - trains45


Kids are to cute and important to the world for child abuse if you can't take care of a kid than do ahve a kid. And dint take you agner off you kid
