What do you consider to be the single most important societal problem today? Why?
There would be a lot less problems if government didn't feel the need to try to solve them.
It's nearly impossible to ever distill the problems facing society to the single most important once, because so many of them are interconnected. Say you decide that childhood poverty is the worst issue facing the U.S. When you do research into how to end childhood poverty, you find that not all childhood poverty looks the same. Some families were doing just fine until a medical disaster or a lost job, while others are struggling with substance abuse, a lack of education that ensures the parents' aren't qualified for anything beyond minimum wage jobs, ect. The big problems are interconnected--they can't be fully separated, at least, not if you intend to try to solve them with any hope for success.
The fact that many seem to think we live in a world in which there are no limits to our greed and that things in this country and others are in great danger of collapsing. This has been brought about due to the falling of our moral levels in society and the blatant use of sexually oriented media and advertising practices. Our children are being marred in their perception of right and wrong, and what is acceptable in society, morally!!!
The single biggest problem is people's reliance on government for their daily needs. Whether it's unemployment, welfare, social security, disability and medicare, all are draining the funds of government and need to be reformed. So many people have become so soft and needy, no longer feeling the need to accomplish anything or provide for their families. And since government programs are there to pick up the slack, they just jump on the dole and feel no shame about it. Of course, the rest of us have to pay that tab, and it creates resentment and anger, which begins to destroy the fabric of our society from within.
