Top Ten Problems With the World In 2015

Turkeyasylum
2015 hasn't been a good year at all. These are terrible things that are happening in 2015. If you want, add to Turkey's list, comment, or anything. Come on, I know you wanna vote!

The Top Ten

1 Third world problems such as malnourishment, hunger, lack of clean water, etc. aren't being addresses quickly

Right now, we're focusing more on getting a new car or getting a new Under Armour duffel bag than helping people overseas in Africa who can't even get to clean water. It's depressing to think about, and it would be a nightmare to live. - Turkeyasylum

Every 5 seconds a child dies. It takes me a minute to read a page in a book. In that 60 seconds, 12 kids died. While I type this, kids die. I have a crazy idea! Stop shoving big macs in your mouth and getting obese, donate it to the starving Africans dying as we speak! - ToptenPizza

Affordable, reliable, abundant, safe, clean energy is required to solve this problem. Duh, can you say natural gas or perhaps nuclear?

I see it everywhere - Neonco31

2 Crappy media

Well, as stated in my vent on sexual songs, there are tons of sexual songs ever since the 80's Disco era (the Disco part was added). Right now, it's becoming even more of a trend, and it's a norm to expect sex to be in a song. Not to mention the disgrace we all know as Autotune. - Turkeyasylum

Try digging up some underground music. There's a lot of interesting stuff still being made. Drop me a message if you want some recommendations, Turkey. - PetSounds

The media makes matters they're covering worse. Those idiots.

This idea is stupid

3 The Islamic State gaining more control

No one can say that about others religion everyone believes in their own religion that is just an insult to Muslim people all around the world

As a Christian I agree. Not all Muslims are bad. You have to be really ignorant to believe that. But that's not what this is saying.

Not all Muslims are bad

The hateful doctrine that is Islam

4 Destroying our own planet

Look at the big picture people. These societal problems don't matter when there isn't a planet to have them on in the first place. - keycha1n

My dad believes that global warming will always happen, but we're just quickening up the process by polluted and stuff. Is this true? - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

People should recycle come on they are so selfish!

They wont fix it until judgement day. They'll regret ever being lazy - Neonco31

5 People allowing others to walk over them

This is a big issue today. I know a lot of people who simply don't care enough to stand up for themselves, and let themselves get bullied then try to drown it out. They need to hold themselves to a higher standard than they are. - Turkeyasylum

That's why I think bullies should understand what they are doing. I get bullied myself, and trust me, it's not fun at all. - kiwifruit77

Yes I do agree that people need to stand up for them selves

I saw a friend who lvoes being teased

6 Drug addictions

Yes, drugs contain nicotine, which is one of the most addictive things on Earth, but there's way to stop them. Don't take drugs in the first place. We should be using these drugs for medicinal purposes, not to get high. Ugh... the way people abuse them... - Turkeyasylum

Most of the controlled drugs are in fact safe. It is an excuse of political parties to get more polices, judges and laws to control their power.

Please, I can tell at least half this site consists of pot smokers. And that's a good thing, not a bad thing. Drugs aren't a big problem in the world. - IronSabbathPriest

You don't normally get addict to anything but it all depneds. There's a reason why people do drugs, drugs makes people feel good and people need to feel good because come on doesn't everybody want to feel good? And one reason why people do drugs is because they're lonley or have bad life's and that there's nothing that will comfort them like people or not even food or execrise so they'll do drugs to comfort they're lonely self's.

7 Exclusion of minorities still strong

Just so everyone knows, I am not racist, but don't you think that we have changed enough? Where I live we are not separated and we are treating each other equally. I think that, in America and Canada and England at least, we are equal enough. There are some racists here and there but that doesn't mean anything, we can ignore them and be glad that we are equal. - SenpaiNoticeMe

Don't you think it's interesting how almost everything on this list has been an issue for a VERY long time, not just 2015? - RockFashionista

People getting put in to ghettos because of religion race and how poor you are in America it's black people Mexicans and poor people in the ghettos and in Russia it's religis minorities - robertspat91

It depends what minority it is. - AGK

8 Inequal spreading of money

It's very unfair that people with billions of money will never share their money with homeless children, woman and men.

If everyone has the same amount of money, there is no economics. Might as well not even use money. Just take whatever you want - CityGuru

Yep money is a load of bollox! If I were in control of the whole planet or something, I would get rid of money and the only thing you need to give to get the item is a friendly attitude. I know you may think I'm a weirdo. - sryanbruen

Right now, the average Qatari has 300 times more money to toy with than the person living in the DRC. This means a person in Qatar may be filthy rich, but squander all the money away and not give it to the poor. The money should be spread more equally.

Thanks for reading! - Turkeyasylum

COMMUNISM! :D ^
Okay, seriously money is fine right now. :v - SenpaiNoticeMe

Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, ...read more.

He got a small penis.

I'm like 98% sure he only got elected because at start of it all people were "hehe, he's never gonna win, hey guys, just as a joke let's vote for him, wouldn't that be hilarious? " And then he got into the finals and those people were like "oh god, what have we done?!? "

People should love him

The world is going downhill.

10 You have to be on one side or the other in politics

What about the fact that people are voting for a candidate because they believe the small half truths that they hear. And they really should be voting for what the PARTY SYSTEM stands for as a whole. Or the fact that the difference in executive (democrat) and congress (majority republican) is getting our government to go NOWHERE. And that the fact that our president is a joke to other countries and that our own citizens have little faith in the strength of our own government.

This is why I hate US politics. I happen to enjoy the world's politics, but the USA's politics are crap because the only big parties are the Democrats (extreme left) and the Republicans (right). Other minority parties are drowned out, such as the Green Party (if you're heard of them...). - Turkeyasylum

It amazes me that people are so quick to judge someone who has differing views from their own yet are so able to turn a blind eye to those who are perceived to be of the same mindset yet are doing the very same "wrong" thing others are condemned for. It's as if feelings trump rational, logical thought.

Britain would be better if I was the leader. I'd do better than Michael Gove, anyway. The thought of him being PM terrifies me. - IronSabbathPriest

The Contenders

11 Extreme overpopulation

Everybody needs to understand that almost all pother problems from climate change to pollution is actually caused by this, and unless this is fixed, nothing else will work.

Birth rates have gone down since the 80s for 1st world countries, I do agree with this though, the world is too crowded...

"(T)he world is too crowded."
Earth's entire population could stand shoulder in the state if Florida. Does that sound "too crowded" to you?
"Anything over 2 billion is too many."
According to whom?
Some tree-hugging, hemp-wearing, vegan hippie human-hater?

THIS SHOULD BE number 1.ALL THE PROBLEMS ARE DUE TO THIS

12 Racism

People are being racist to black people

13 Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician and a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 election.

14 Hunger

Hunger is the number one problem in Africa because of over population.

It is burning problem for society...therfr,we should try to reduce ths prblm.

15 Global Warming

no. Bad

Yep - Neonco31

16 Mass shootings

Mass shooting is a really big problem of the world.

More guns is the solution to the problem here

True

17 Terrorism

It is devil to humanity

Trump will fix this

18 Extremism

As for the other guy on the bottom, I feel bad for him. Man, those Muslims sure love to mess things up. Multiculturalism is most definably NOT a part of Islam.

Muslim started to restrict everything that agains they religion law, I hate this. We live in multiracial country but the claimed this is Muslim country. Now our famous celebs especialy malay are wearing hijjab because they afraid of social media fitnah (accusedd) or any sentimen about how they wearing.

19 Suicide

People are dying due to narrow-minded asses! Like, seriously, come on, respect each other! There are plenty of good things about someone, but your narrow mind, well… narrowed out the vision to see those good qualities. Come on, you can change that! Suicide is also painless, by the way. People should be nicer to one another, but remember: NEVER, NEVER, EVER GIVE UP! NEVER, EVER, EVER KILL YOURSELF! You're worth more than gold!

Certain people should kill themselves so the world can be rid of their stupidity. - IronSabbathPriest

No, nobody should kill themselves. I'd love for the world to rid of their stupidity but not in that way, by education. - SenpaiNoticeMe

20 Female slavery

Thank god someone is smart enough to add this. P.s. Don't forget male slavery!

Females run the world they make us and we just abuse them whats wrong with us humans

Slavery in general

who cares

21 Ignorance

People say stuff like all White people cause pain and death and they all hate Black people and all black people are poor and uneducated that is ignorant - robertspat91

Ignorance is extremely common today. Nobody cares enough to learn facts and jump to conclusions. - SenpaiNoticeMe

22 Animal abuse

This topic has long been an issue the government isn't doing enough about

Is it just me or do everyone think that animals are better than humans

I think its just you animals are not better than humans

23 Government Corruption

I don't know

24 Corruption
25 Hello

Hello is fantastic!

I'm getting sick with Hello, it overplayed in radio. - BeaM456

I dunno about this one

26 War between countries

I wish this were higher - Doom

That is truely injustice
You know those god damn kings only want to expand their kingdome but they don't have the balls to fight on their own so they would send people to kill the other king and the other king send people to kill that king
What the hell?
People are killing each other for nothing.
We are humans but wilder than beasts. - radmehrzn

27 Bullying

Bullying is another word for "People allowing others to walk over them" - kiwifruit77

I think bullying

28 Male bashing in femenism
29 Rape

By avoiding the rape this world will be much better place.

30 Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

Bernie wants us to pay triple tax dollars what would we do if he had to pay like $5,000.00 a month or year

31 Homosexuality

This is not a good thing or a bad thing. It's a natural part of how humans live, so I don't know why people are either negative about it or worship it. It's as completely natural as heterosexuality. - RockFashionista

They now legalized bestiality in Canada because of this. Get mad all you want or thumbs down this comment, but understand that now that homos and bestialities are now married in the western world. Plus people are changing their gender. Think about... :/ I'm not trying to be a jerk, but just think about it..

People are so blinded by Homosexual Propaganda that they can't find a problem with it. We need to start treating these mental illnesses like we did years ago. Change isn't always a bad thing. Also, it is never found in nature. The 2 penguins that were thought to be gay were actually discovered to have mental issues. That's my opinion.

It's not a problem and everyone who thinks so is being prejudice and not tolerant of people's differences

32 Poverty
33 Laziness

Laziness results poverty and hunger. Its also the main problems in this world, Laziness leads us to the wrong path.

34 People thinking everybody thinks the same way
35 Movies suck
36 Indifference
37 Governments don't listen to people
38 Video game fanbases
39 Political correctness has gotten way out of hand

Now it's to the point where nobody cares about white men anymore, if you want to be noticed and appreciated in society nowadays you either have to be a minority or a woman

If the 70's 80's 90's and even the early 2000's could see what we've become they'd probably be like "what a bunch of pansies"

A very bad idea in the first place. Modish, shallow, doctrinaire, uneducated, culturally illiterate, management friendly, poor excuse for a second language or bi-cultural qualification and experience, by aspiring members of the crawling lower middle classes to gain a new advantage after one they lost after the successful integration of WW2. refugees.

A simpleminded putsch and undemocratic attack by stealth( read : effective tool of Fabian gender, race, post- colonial studies bigots, cultural Marxist, cultural have-nots, aspiring administrative sadists) to wreck vengeance and deconstructionism on the very systems that democratically empowered and indulged them in the first place Read ; " patriarchy" or "empowerment" or "entitlement" or if in doubt "progressive overreach''

No amount of this is OK. The cement secular replacement of simple dignity, reasonable doubt, honesty, non- ideological, dis-interested inquiry, rational skepticism and ...more

40 Intolerance of other beliefs/not being religious

Although I'm Catholic, I don't really go to church much, and weak with my faith. This makes me vulnerable to being accused of atheism, and living in the whitest, conservative community you could ever think of, it's highly frowned upon. We all need to know There isn't any correct belief, no matter how much we argue. - Turkeyasylum

You're not saying that all atheists are idiots are you? I'm an atheist and I respect other people's beliefs.

I still respect Atheists' beliefs. Everyone has their own beliefs and it's not my job to shove it down other people's throats. - Turkeyasylum

I'm always preaching about stuff and people hate me for it and I'm not offending their religion

If the Bible is proof God exists, then a Mr. Tickle book must be proof he exists. - IronSabbathPriest

41 Mature subcultures

Many of the people these days try to act as if they're "straight outta Compton". They're trying to make drug usage seem cool (a lot of my classmates keep joking about weed, and some are even vaping). People are hating against the Police, singing that one NWA song everyday. People weren't like this 10 years ago. - ethanmeinster

People are fake! They should get lives! …

42 People thinking weed is bad for you

Weed isn't bad it grows brain cells, cures cancer, is not addictive, and no one has ever died from smoking weed, also, you can not overdose on weed. "Herb is a plant"-Bob Marley

Uneducated idiots who don't do research think this. I can't think of anything you're less likely to die of. - IronSabbathPriest

I personally prefer snorting whale lard

43 ISIS

Isis is taking to many country's and city's like China and other places

44 Too much screen time

Kids are spending too many hours on video games and not spending enough time with their family's

45 Society worshiping all the "different" groups of people

It's been like a circle, the first one was when black people finally got equal rights we were suddenly not allowed to say anything even remotely bad about them, and everybody complained about how "there aren't enough movie/T.V. roles given to black people" and they basically said that so much that they were practically demanding the media to only give roles to black people, then shortly after came the uproar of women's rights, and it's basically had the same exact effects except for the fact that it's also changed society's view of men, now all men are seen as disgusting perverts, and lastly is the most recent one, the transgenders, the big problem with them is the fact that society is practically treating them like heroes, people say "they're so brave for coming out and telling people they're transgender, look, I don't care if you changed genders and proudly came out and told everyone, you shouldn't be treated like a god because of that. People just need to stop worshiping every ...more

These people are so annoying, now in terms of media they'll pretty much anything no matter how stupid and idiotic if it has representation in it, at this point, I'm pretty sure you can take something like Fanboy and Chum Chum, throw some representation in there, then thousands of people will instantly change their minds about the show and say it's good

Why is it whenever a movie or T.V. show character that was originally American gets changed to a different race nobody bats an eye, (or in most cases, encourages it) but then when a character that was originally a POC gets changed to a white person people get angry and say "they whitewashed the character"? so, are we just not supposed to give roles to white American males anymore? Are we only allowing women and different ethnicities now?

46 Movie Ratings

Or the fact that even just the presence of a gay character in a movie, even if there's no sexual stuff involved whatsoever, it will automatically land you an R rating, I don't get it PG-13 rating, why are you so afraid of gay people?

It drives me nuts with what they've become, R for the most part is still fine, but the others aren't, G movies nowadays are being stigmatized by the general public as baby movies so they think in order to show that they're "hip" or "edgy" they need to throw in an unnecessary "naughty phrase" or an innuendo just to get the PG rating so really they're just G movies parading around with the PG rating because they think it makes them look more adult, even though in reality doing that comes across as more childish then adult, the big one for me though is PG-13, PG-13 movies now are pretty much PG movies with more action, because now for some reason they don't want to show blood or have it be graphic in any way anymore, people have been saying PG-13 movies nowadays are more violent then R movies, but that is all wrong, because their is a HUGE difference between violence and action, because are you honestly gonna tell me that something like Transformers is more ...more
