Top Ten Problems In the World Today


The Top Ten

1 Poverty Poverty

This should me miles higher than drug abuse.

Environmental problems and endangered species are way worse than this.

We need to educate, assist, train.

Ayo, poverty shall be removed. - BorisRule

2 War and Terrorism War and Terrorism

This item should be replaced by " War on terrorism" - yatharthb

Politicians are the cause of all the problems. - Ananya

No. Terrorists are. Religious radicals are. Politicians just find a way to make it worse. But they are not the sole instigators of this problem. Get your facts right - ObscuredBeauty

I am scared there is going to be a huge war in our time - B0S5J4M3S

I don't want terrorists - BorisRule

3 Drug Abuse Drug Abuse

A VERY terrible problem - Ananya

People are dying from this and it has to stop

Drug abuse is horrible

Horrible mistake - BorisRule

4 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

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

This the oly prblem of this world. Terrorists are not existng - ihatetrump

5 Racism

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

Mostly, the WORD racism! - EliHbk

Really not an issue in America, but as Professor Filthy Frank, PhD in Internet Retardation, said: people think that their opinions matter on the internet.

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

6 Climate Change 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

Climate change should be number 1 on this list it has a major effect on the environment for every living thing in this world including plants.

7 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 think pollution is a bad thing that people shouldn't do anymore

Clean up behind you.

8 Disease
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.

To all third wave feminists:
Sexism targets men too! - BorisRule

10 Population Growth Population Growth

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.

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

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

Very difficult problem, how you live without money - belarbi

I need a jon

12 Murder



uncontrollable issue of the world

13 Dabbing Dabbing

Really? Dabbing is considered to be on the same tier of problems plaguing our world today as a stupid trend compared to more major issues like war and terrorism and drug abuse? Give me a break, people. Don't get me wrong, I hate dabbing (and how Squidward was ruined by it), but shouldn't we complain about dabbing on a list about trends and not global problems? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Effects teachers effectively with the effect of an effect that effects.

Big world problem

Dabbing is legit (Jk kill it)

14 Feminism

Modern feminism is just a problem now, not a solution

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

Don't listen to the idiot that said there is a pay gap, the pay gap isn't real and women being "sexualised" is just a stupid thing to say because there is nothing you can do about a man hitting on a women.

Imagine being so misinformed you think that females haven't been and still are disadvantaged? lmao!

15 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.

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

16 Religious Fundamentalists

They are the profound evil of our times

17 Zionism

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.

Stealing others homes and killing them? never mind.

Me when I read the lord's scripture, nnut

USrael is the biggest problem on earth

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 Refugees

Refugees around the world need help.

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

20 Technology

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

21 Raping

Completely sick at the thought of this horrible crime existing in our society. We need to punish those who do this for them to feel the extent of the pain they put their victims through.

I like it

You don't deserve to live. I would punch you in your face if I saw you. Why do people like you exist! - Userguy44

22 Violence

Can't imagine that people like violence. - Userguy44

23 Totalitarianism
24 Secret Organizations

Delicious illuminati

I think that is fair

i agree

The Illuminati are dead. They’ve been dead before slavery was abolished.

25 Global Warming

It is affect ing the animals

26 Youth Oppression
27 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?

28 Existentialism

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


go isis


30 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

31 Government Power
32 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.

33 Teen Depression

I mean it will at least help bring population down.

34 Obesity

But on a positive note, they will die sooner

56% of the people of America are obese

35 Postmodernism
36 Black Lives Matter

These people with these shirts clearly don't understand that the black people dying are STUPID! These people dying are pulling guns on cops, and pulling more guns on cops. And that's why these psycho college kids are shooting up you're churches. I DO NOT agree with the murder punks, but it is obvious why they do it, an NOT ALL black people are murderers, but a lot are (I wouldn't say the majority though)! Many people caught in the crossfires are innocent too! This is a GIANT DEAL! - EliHbk

Yes, They are also Human Beings like us! And Should be Treated like THE REST OF THE PEOPLE AND THE WORLD! - JohnPierre88

Their lives don't matter. If you're gonna bomb nurseries, kill elderly veterans and basically attack people for being white then you deserve to be shot on sight. I'm am so sick and tired of these racist vermin thinking that the entire world owes them and that white people need to give up everything for them. They're nothing but narcissistic SOBs and I'd kill every single one of them if I could - bobbythebrony

Yes they do

41 Pornography

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.

It affects kids of today thinking faculty because what you feed your mind is what exhibit and think about

Porn is amazing!

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