    1. Rap music
    2. Anarchists such as Occupy Wall Street and BLM who are paid to cause chaos and use violence...
    3. ISIS, terrorists who kill innocent people and threaten peaceful coexistence.

    (1) Organized religion.  Organized religion is the main causes of many of societal problems in the world today.  It causes people to be parochial instead of universally minded.  It is the main causes of prejudices & hatred against people deemed to be unacceptable &/or outsiders.  It is also the cause of many psychological problems because of repression of the natural positive human instinct.  It causes people to live in the past, being afraid of progress & growth because it isn't preordained. 

    (2) Poverty. Everyone should have at the minimum a solidly middle class standard of living.  Everyone should be comfortable without having to worry about the rudiments of life.   No one should have to worry about having a roof over their heads, food on the table,  decent health care, & education.  Being poor is detrimental to one's emotional, mental, physical, & psychological health.   NO ONE should be poor at all, not with the advances in postmodern culture & society.  There is ENOUGH, even MORE THAN ENOUGH to  create decent, fulfilling jobs.   

    (3) Warfare.  There is no need for warfare.  People at this stage ought to be mature & evolved enough to discuss & resolve issues w/o resorting to brute force.  Warfare has existed since the beginning of time.  It is instinctive in the human condition.  There has to be a BETTER way to resolve issues than to always go to war.

      Are you sure you are talking about our world? It sounds like you are hoping for heaven or utopia. It does exist here on earth.

      Agree with all of this. Especially poverty. I think the world would be a much more stable place if people were actually living comfortably with a decent education. In turn it would probably result in less of the other 2 things you mentioned as well.

      Grace I too think this way. And in my own little way I hope I can contribute along this vein. I feel its the 21st Century and we are at the tipping point where if enough of us do a little here and there we can tip the shift and make these  "real".

    1.money : money is ruling us. People are differentiate by money. Lot of people are not happy without this and struggling to get it. Few are having money and even they are not happy with it. Everything can be easily get if we have money sometimes happiness. Same world human is common but few are travelling in car and few are by walk.some people ready to serve food for pet animals but same mankind human are living without food.
    2. Dishonest: world without dishonest. If everyone is honest to what they are doing without cheating at work place,  family and friends then world will like heaven to all of us. No corruption will take place and no need of court punishment.
    3.natural disaster:  so many people are dying unexpectedly and lot of children are losing their family.

      We need a shift in priorities till we can rebalance things. There are so many things out of natural kilter. What is presented good and acceptable is bad and unacceptable. And vice versa. The world is upside down to me and Im wrestling to find my way.

      Never heard of it, but I'd like to clarify that I said, "vegetables" not fruit.  Orange fruit is a whole other thing.   smile

    Firstly, faulty beliefs.  Beliefs are opinions but most people regard them as sacrosanct.  Faulty beliefs as to who and what we are cause all the anguish and fears, which lead to unhappiness in the world.

    Secondly, far less people.  The planet is already over populated.  It's one of the root causes of so many other things that are causing us problems.

    Thirdly, the Armaments Industry worldwide.

      I agree with you Tom on us being subject to faulty beliefs. The best way to have one real perspective is through direct experience. Sadly we just can't experience everyone so we have to receive "experiences" via 2nd 3rd 4th hand etc experiences....

    The world would be better off without racism, guns, and poverty.
