    If I could help everyone in the world to be more tolerant and to seek to understand before they seek to be understood, there would be far fewer world problems left to solve!
    Good question!

    I would help everyone understand that they cannot improve their situation by tearing down those more fortunate than themselves.

    Does it have to be one or can it be more?

    1. Starvation
    2. Political Corruption
    3. Homelessness
    4. Religious Wars/Wars in general
    5. Equality and tolerance towards all people. Regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, etc.

    - These are issues I would really love to see solved. If I had the power to fix them, I would.

    I would solve the problem of people wanting to solve the problems of the world.

    Yes we can help people, however every action has an equal opposite reaction

    Overpopulation. It is the root cause of all of the other problems. If we control overpopulation it would end world hunger, pollution of the planet and housing and economic issues.
    There is no need in this day and age to continue to glorify the excessive multiplication of our species.

    More than likely, I would promote positive understanding in an overall effort to cease wars and military conflicts.

    I will try to put an end to all kinds of violence like war that leads to loss of life and property.

    I would change the problem that the youngest generations are having (education cuts, poor morals, bad parenting techniques, etc.).  If all of these are fixed, the other problems will eventually be fixed as well.

    Where I to end the ethnic monopolization of the world's money supply and mass media. . . .the rampant corruption and greed in the world would likely decrease.  There is such an abundance in this world that it's an absolute disgrace that anyone anywhere dies from lack of food, clothing, shelter, or medical treatment.

    Hunger, there is no reason people should be hungry. There is plenty of resources to easily feed 10x 's the population.

    Make sure NO ONE is hungry or homeless.
    There are so many, even in America. Yet American government rushes to help everyone else but their own.
    Why would they do this?
    This really confuses me.

    First would be poverty. All men and women were created equal. Its the rules and regulations created by men which are allowing some to enjoy all the pleasures in life and at the same time, there are others who are deprived of any of the pleasures in life. Poverty sucks big time.

    I'd try to solve the Palestinian issue and get rid of all those puppet regimes in the Middle East - That's 60% of the Worlds problems solved in one big sweep.

    Then I'd tackle the unethical regimes in the West and redistributed wealth so everyone in society had a equal or balanced share.

    Hunger. I see a lot of people striving to get one morsel of food in the world today while the affluent dole up and consume caviar.
