    This is a two part question. The second part: What are you doing to try and make a difference to change it?

    Do you blindly try and give a shit, or are you actively doing something to facilitate change?

    They are way too many! But of course, all of them come down to some form of injustice or limitation of rights, freedom and liberties. I used to do a lot when I was younger and had more time to volunteer and I hope I have influenced a few minds while doing that, nowadays I limit my lifestyle a bit by supporting as little cruelty and violence as possible, I donate to causes and sometimes I share my views on the internet (pointless, I know). I'm confident I still do more than most, but it's still a drop in the ocean, I'm sure.

    Distraction or poverty. It's a tie. I'm not doing anything because I have 0 capital. But I am in planning mode.

    This is a pretty broad question... So I'll give a broad answer.


    The biggest problem in this work is that people care too much about other people and greed. Race, religion, beliefs, Nationality, social and economic status are just name a few of the categories.


    People are judged by every aspect of their life when they dont need to be. Who cares what color you are. Who cares what mythical being you pray to. Who cares what country your from. Who cares what kind of car I drive, what my yearly income is, and what size my house is.


    If people took the energy and time they put into judging others, who knows where the world would be.


    What am I doing about it....


    Hmmm... I dont belive it will ever change because it is the norm and people have adjusted to trying to answer all those judgements is the best of ways. People no longer strive to survive, they strive to show off and be accepted.


    My part is not giving a shit. I wake up every day and do what i want. I dont pay attention to other people.


    Don't get me wrong, I care about others. I'll ask how their day is going, and even help a random person in need.


    I think to myself. This persons life would be easier if helped them. I dont think to myself, this person is struggling but they're poor, and I shouldn't Help.



    Idk Its just the broadest question in the history of questions.

    The biggest problems in the world boil down to people's attitude towards others.
    liveleak (.)com comments section illustrate this best.

    Humanity is fvcked up in the first place. For me, it feels like we were caged into this disastrous dirt with unknown reason and there the scientist or God or the devs or whatever you call them watching above.

    Give a shit and make this "world" better.

    I understand the pessimism, but it's not like things are not slowly getting better as well. Give it a few thousand years, and the world we be a very different and hopefully better place. Unless you-know-who nukes us all in the meantime ;)

    2016 is the problem facing the world today.

    North Korea, Clinton, Trump, Black Lives Matter, Cameron Gone, Brexit, Celebs dropping like flies [Not that that is an issue], Gun Crimes, Religion, LGBT.

    You can't pinpoint one problem.

    Look at the mainstream news and you realise shit gone bad.

    What am I going to do about it? Chill the ... out

    By 2100 the population will double. There are some researches suggesting that Asian, African and Mediterranean temperatures will raise by 2050 forcing millions of people to migrate northwards. I'm confident about the word "different", the word "better" is under a big question. :)

    People are too easily swayed by propaganda and lies. You can't convince them that they are being manipulated. It just takes slick packaging, some 3 send sound bites and some well cast derision and you can have people eating out of your hand.
    Now that's not to say I have not been influenced either. Believe me, I am not the type to claim I have the answer and everyone else is wrong. I think people including myself would rather believe a comforting lie than be told the harsh truth. What do you do about that? I don't know.

    Weed addicts. That's the biggest problem in the world.

    What am I doing to change it? Not smoking weed, obviously.

    There is a lack of real love and respect in this world. I think that's our biggest problem.

    I'm aware of the irony of this statement, so if you're going to make ignorant comments at me, respect Sherbs and leave them out of this thread.

    Thank you.
