I agree - pretty thorough list. Although, I have to say, after two days of dipping into single digits, not so sure about the global warming...uh oh

I honestly believe that the end is near...not necessarily tomorrow near, but it is inevitable. This world has gotten so bad. There is so much more hatred, selfishness and other huge problems that something has to give eventually. It seems to me that there are less caring people in the world and to me, that is a huge problem! dunno

It has to be population if you choose from the list.....it underlies a lot of other problems. I don't know why Terrorism is on the list. It makes the news but it doesn't affect many people and is probably more a symptom than a cause.

Interesting thread Riya.....thoughtful as usual! wave

definitely over population

If you shove too many people in one little space and tell them to all share the scarce resources, it kind of makes all the rest of the problems happen.

I'd love to propose mandatory sterilization, but I think that plan would go over like a lead balloon.

Good question Riya thumbs up im not sure if the answer is oil or god - they seem to be embroiled - all a part of the oneness of surviving in the now - i guess for some folks, the state of the stock exchange today may well be a high priority dunno


our lives are being led by people who's priorities dont actually meet the urgencies of the person on the street blues

I loved all the good stuff about our recent Dublin trip - but I have never seen so many beggars in the streets dunno


very sad - i know some of them make a decent living that way but heck, some of this suffering is real too - i simply do not know - if I had to choose, I would say that the biggest problem is MONEY cos lots of us are altruists already confused

ahh so true Trish. The beggars in Dublin sounds interesting to me. I thought it was a fairly rare problem in the developed world.

Money !! I should have remembered. Almost like the axis on which the planet rotates. Quite sad but all of us face this situation. Literally driving life around to make money while not being able to enjoy it in most cases.

Simple pleasures .. we need to make time !!sigh

None of the above
As I see and interpret Political/ military History it is the existence of the US government, since at least 1900. It is a totally artificial creation and after the Civil War, it should have , really ceased to exist.
That said, the solution is to totally dismember it, perhaps into at least 4 countries if not more. The so called New World Order 2 will then follow the old New World Order of the Nazis into oblivion. The attempt to rule an entire planet, to poison an entire planet with both industrial and nuclear chemicals and the economic blackmail for countries to use genetically enhanced grains, livestock and vegetables for populations to literally poison themselves would stop. The spreading of and constant state of continual wars promoted by the Pentagon Arms manufacturing and sales would halt to the delight of war weary peoples everywhere. The US is the world's largest weapons supplier, (with Russia and England just behind). Neither China or Russia follow the insane idea of global domination as if it was their own private corporation.
The fact of it being the world's largest industrial polluter and the world's largest weapons supplier and war provocateur is enough never mind wanting to turn the entire Planet Earth into it's own corporate domain with all the amenities of Abu Ghraib for anyone who would resist or object to. Jmo.

Population explosion ... i hate tot hink of it. I think even mandatory sterilisation if was feasible would not help. Its " mentality ' that needs a little insightful change. When people know their economic situation and that they can afford a decent life for 1 child why cant they figure out " no more " ... this is simple logic , simpler than children are God's gift or i would just love to have 2 more.sigh
