Wouldn’t it be great if we could choose something that we could get rid of forever?
We’d be able to make the world a better place JUST LIKE THAT!
Well, at least we can daydream, I guess…
Folks on AskReddit talked about what they’d get rid of in the world if they had the power.
Let’s take a look.
1. No escape.
“The people calling for my car’s extended warranty.
Every. Single. Day. Block them and they sprout 2 more.”
2. All of them.
“Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Also, diseases like ALS.”
Just the ones thst suck blood.
The rest are ok, they are food for other animals.”
4. The root.
It’s the root of everything, isn’t it?”
5. No more.
Because as Khaled Hosseini said in The Kite Runner, “There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft… When you k**l a man, you steal a life.
You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.””
Human trafficking is still a huge problem all over the world and many of our societal problems stem from it and a history of slavery.”
Just seems so unnecessary but it plagues so many people for no particular reason and literally wrecks their confidence.”
8. That would be nice.
I got diagnosed with severe IBS and a malabsorption issue a year ago and it has consumed my life and changed it. I’m so sick and tired of literally being sick and tired. It’s painful. My brother has Crohn’s disease and I h**e watching him suffer as well.
He got diagnosed at 8 and has been such a sick kid with hospitalizations and such. He’s almost 20 now and luckily lives a pretty normal adult life now, but the illness still controls his life in some aspects. Intestinal problems are no joke.”
9. Spot on.
I’m positive it would solve many of the worlds problems, on many different levels.”
Those little f**kers are resilient and reproduce a lot and can’t be k**led as easily as other bugs.”
11. Affects a lot of people.
I’ve been majorly affected by it and seen what it can do to others who lose their battle.
No one should have to feel that alone and sh**ty.”
12. Clean it up.
Without corruption a ton of the world’s problems would be addressed.”
13. Is it too late?
What’s coming is truly awful and there’s no escape for anyone.”
14. It was a different time.
I miss pre-9/11 culture.”
“Dementia. I am a young person, who forget things too much.
One of my greatest fear is d**ng alone, the other is that my tendency of forgetting things will develop into dementia, and I won’t be able to remember my precious memories.
Who are we without our memories.”
16. We wish.
I feel like once critical thinking is widespread we can work together and accomplish everything else people mentioned in this thread.”
17. A hot take.
I don’t want to get rid of all those religious people. I would just like to have them base their kindness or h**e on something I can reason with.
It’s harder to be an extremist if we are all working with the same reality based on facts.”
18. Get rid of all of it.
“I am going with war.
It has the added side effect of taking out the industrial military complex too!”
A child that grows up without love is incredibly more likely to become an addict, abusive, violent, turn to a path of crime and so on.
So much of human related problems in the world can be solved if kids just receive love.”
“Every trace of human pollution that has ever existed.
Like pressing a reset button on Earth.”
21. Not worth it.
“Jealousy/Comparing to others.
The least spoken and the most evil thing for a human being.
Life would be so much happy if it wasn’t for this.”
22. Get busy!
“Probably would delete everyone’s need to sleep.
Think about what more you can do with those extra 8 hours.”
“Andrew Wakefield’s discredited study linking vaccines and autism.
One man has caused so much irreparable damage to society by sowing distrust in modern medicine.”
24. You never know…
It’s proven to drastically affect your mental health, and I honestly believe that it’s going to be a major cause of the extinction of our species because of the amount of misinformation that is spread through them.”
25. Dangerous stuff.
Bye bye covid deniers, flat earthers, and anything else that’s blatantly stupid/harmful.”
What would YOU remove from the world if you had the power?
