Top Ten Problems In the World Today

The Top Ten

1 Poverty

Do most people in the community even know how hard it is to get a job in some countries? Unfortunately, not every country can manage good jobs. People in poor countries wish they had a job and money and they can't help it that they can't find a job. Just think how many people on this world live in poverty. ~ Userguy44

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...

We are pretty close to eradicating extreme poverty, but it's only because it remains concentrated and increasing in some war-torn African countries and is on the decline in Asia

Climate Change is more of an issue. If they want money so bad, why don't they just get a job.

2 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

What is the point of these wars? Can't we all respect each others beliefs and live in one world peacefully?

The economy of the United States needs war to become a "powerhouse" again

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

3 Climate Change

It's 2020 now. Look what's happened because of humanity! Australia is on fire! The endangered list is now 41,416! You know how big that number is, that's a really big number! People think climate change doesn't exist, yeah, people only believe things when they cause problems. Maybe people will believe climate change exists if every country is on fire. Australia is on fire, something will be next if we don't stop it. It doesn't even have to be big, like not driving a car for Pete's sake! You wanna die? Be my guest! But don't come crying to me when the world is on fire because you didn't care.

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.

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.

Should definitely be on the top. While things like individual countries being unwilling to work for the greater good are important, there isn't any evidence that says our planet isn't dying. In the long run, this is a massive problem.

4 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.

People always being out of homeostasis clouds our judgment. EVERY drug. This includes coffee, prescriptions, even herbs.

The idea of making drugs is just WRONG! I don't understand why it's so popular even though it's BAD!

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

5 Disease

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

This is worse than racism, sexism and dabbing.

we should as stay healthy and not get sick a lot of kids get sick to get out of school but if they get sick everyone else could get sick too just because they wanted to get out of something they didn't want to do

Diseases are a disaster!

6 Animal Abuse

Animals have feelings! Not just humans! Animals feel pain and domestic animals can't even take care of themselves! You know why? Because they need a human to take care of them, they're not wild animals! No animal deserves abuse and if you think that's okay, go to hell. I have to say animals are way better than humans. They care for us, they don't cause problems, but look at us! We're the reason the earth is dying. We're the reason animals are going extinct. We're the reason murder exists. Do you abuse an animal? Go to hell you disgusting awful human. Thank you to everyone who agrees that animals shouldn't get abused. You guys are angels but sadly not everyone is.

I made myself a promise a while ago that if I saw anyone hurting an animal, specifically my dog, I would pound their faces and kick their groins. :)

Animals should never be abused. for the people abusing them you guys should never do that because think of you being the dogs. all those dogs do for people is help them and protect them. these animals are important in life and they are so adorable. my mom owns a dog kennal and we would never abuse animals and we stand up for them and we find them great homes. and once the puppy meets its person it burst out in happieness and just it makes me cry just watching them be so happy after what they have been through. So stand up against animal abuse and choose the right path.

why hurt the things that help us more then anything God made animals to provide for but most people use that as an advantage

7 Racism

How are we still doing this, people are equal and deserve equal rights? How is that so hard to understand. And we have to be active about it.

My main question is, who decided that white people were better than black people? Just imagine, you are enjoying a delicious meal in your comfortable home with your family talking and laughing. Days later, you find yourself on the lower deck of a filthy boat crammed with hundreds of other people crammed, just as you are. You get little food and water. People around you are dying and the conditions in which you live are so bad that you envy them. There are no bathrooms. You are chained to hundreds, maybe thousands, of people with little room to move. How would you feel? And on the other side of the world are people, people just like you except that they have white skin instead of black, those people are enjoying themselves as you suffer. And there excuse is that you are a different color than we are. I mean get a grip people! 😤😤

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.

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.

8 Murder

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.

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

Why is dabbing higher than this?

Why would you kill your own kin?

9 Pollution

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.

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!

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.

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

10 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.

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!

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!

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

The Newcomers

? Bullying
? Bad Gun Laws

The Contenders

11 Global Warming

Ice? Whats that? Let it snow? I haven't seen a white Christmas in 13 years. The cold doesn't bother me any more because there is no cold.

I think that we should save awe in interment

This is affecting the whole world.

It is affect ing the animals

12 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.

It's bad for both men and women, but extreme feminists should stop. I think the problem is in more developed countries like the US, the UK etc. etc. it is less of a problem but in some countries there is hardly any feminist movement at all and the women there need a voice.

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.

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.

13 Raping

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.

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.

One of the most sickening problems with this world today. It’s sad many people had to experience this sort of thing happen to them.

Do I need to raven explain this one it is so wrong no matter the excuse

14 Pedophiles

My uncle said he would give me candy...

Yes they are a problem

Who wants candy

crazy :( God bless you guys

15 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

Those people should get serious help to pay bills.

Help each other out

16 Feminism

It's so wrong when people judge woman on what they eat, wear talk and the way they breath people are so cruel I'm Ashamed of how this world has turned out!

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

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.

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

17 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

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

Modern-day liberalism is a cancer.

18 Religious Fundamentalists

Most religous Fundamentalists don't even obey their scriptures completly, otherwise we would have hundreds of Jesus', so they need to calm down and stop hating on people who are different. And people don't know about every religon out their so how is someone supposed to worship your god when they don't know of their existance.

They will react with violence to people that challenge their views. They spread more hate than love.

They are the profound evil of our times

Why is this happening?

19 Totalitarianism
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.

If we maintain a capitalist society without redistributing wealth then we will run through earths resources.

21 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.

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

Stealing others homes and killing them? never mind.

Me when I read the lord's scripture, nnut

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.

Refugees are the products of war

They need our help to survive

23 Violence

Can't imagine that people like violence.

Why is dabbing above this?

WHY ON EARTH IS DABBING ON THIS LIST AND LET ALONE OVER ALL OF THIS!?!

24 Child Abuse

Horrible. My friend told me about this TV series or movie, I don't know, that's a true story about how a mom and her boyfriend tortured a child.

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

If you are Hurting children than you are monsters

25 Youth Oppression

We need to be able to do more things, we are the future

I don't know what that means

This is important
