    If you could change one thing about the world we live in today, what would that be?

    Would you want the world to have world peace, take care of the forest or would you just like the neighbor to turn down his music at night time? What would you personally like the world to have different than it is now?

    If I had that kiind of power...I think that I would just slow the world down. Technology is progressing way too fast, the governments are too quick to go to war, the economy needs to be brought to a crawl so we can fix it. We just all need to slow down and regroup together, the world as a whole, a unified effort.

    I would love the world to have primitive societies of the past; wherein human nature was innocent, pure and genuine. Whereby material needs didn’t dictate nature of human relations.

    I would like the world to have purged politics- the politics which is meant to serve the humans and is for their benefits and not for the acquisition of the power and money.

    I would like the people of the world to be more understanding and tolerant of each others' views and beliefs.So as to have the world of humble and noble people.

    No hunger in the world, it is so upsetting seeing little children in Africa so malnurised that their stomachs bulge out.

    The domination of the wealthy elite of the worlds resources and power.  I would prefer to share the worlds resources and power with everyone rather than create a world where one person eats and spends more than they can handle while another person starves due to lack of food.

    I'd like to see universal good manners and courtesy in daily life and for everyone to have respect and consideration for others.

    The eradication of all illness and disability on the planet. If a person is healthy, they can find a way to survive.

    If I could change anything in this world, I would like to change the indifference that people seem to have against nature, the society and his fellowmen in general.Because of this negative behavior, we do not care anymore to what is happening around us.

    If I could change indifference to care and love, this world would be a better place.

    It would be, food and water to all people on the earth. We can choose what we would eat, and drink, but there's people on this time wile I'm writing this who are dieing because they don't have water of any kind to drink, nor food to eat.

    I would change our vocabulary and remove words like hate and lie.  If those words did not exist how would they be known?

    Remove humanity because of their selfishness and radical behavior that can not be contained for a unified better purpose. The innocent, earth and animals have suffered long enough.

    I can't get rid of the crime we have on earth. If I could I would. There is someone that can, the one and only "True God."

    I would get rid of poverty to give everyone the chance to survive and flourish - we all deserve that.

    I would like to see a world in which each of us would be more generous in  terms of finding time for one another, showing genuine tolerance, and sharing the good fortune we have without the government having to mandate it.

    I would remove authoritarian governments that crush freedom, free markets, and equal opportunity and I would expose everyone to enlightenment values.

    I don't really like answering such questions without a clear answer, or a solution. However, what bothers me most about our world today is the amount of money spent for entertainment, earned by stars and athletes, and the little bit of money spent to help those in need. The salaries of people that are helping around the world (many being volunteers), nurses, teachers, police, firefighters, EMTs, in comparison to stars and atheletes. Understandable, there are many that share their wealth, however, I bet many of them are for tax deductions and publicity.

    A dream for me is for all nations to collectively co-operate, under the direction of the United Nations, to heal the earth.

    That each person born in this world would have the opportunity and means to fulfill their unlimited potential.

    I would keep Apple from releasing updated versions of products every year so I wouldn't feel so obsolete.

    But in all seriousness, I would double the amount that K-12 teachers are paid.  I'm not a teacher myself, but I was an education major in college for two years, and I know how frustrating it can be for teachers.  The most important job in the world is also the most underpaid job.

    I would like to see an end to poverty.  Everyone should be able to stay healthy, get an education, and have healthy food to eat and clean water to drink...I think most of our other problems might go away if poverty was wiped out.
