      I'm torn between greed and feeling the need to force your opinions and beliefs on others.

      At the end of the day that, to me, is what all the terrorism is about--people can't just live and let live. They have to make everyone else believe what they do and get rid of the ones that don't.

      Obviously, society as a whole has to do that to some extent to protect people (e.g. pedophilia). But if the other person's beliefs and behaviors aren't harming you or others in any way, so be it.

      That vanity begets greed...

      'OH I'm so great and above others, I deserve it all...',

      ....besides, everyone else is a weenie...


      It's thinking like that, that endangers mankind more than anything.

    heysal, tina,and dennis NAILED IT! I WAS going to say greed and lying, but that IS kind of included in what dennis said. After all, greed in and of itself isn't really bad. Does YOUR wanting more hurt ME? NOPE! The reason why people are against greed is NOT because of greed, but what it BRINGS! Lying, cheating(which comes from lying), stealing(which is a kind of cheating).

    And people laugh at vanity. It often doesn't become a problem to others until you have greed and lying.

    Of course, overpopulation is bad too, but, well...

      BULL! A lot of stuff done in the name of religion is utter GARBAGE and against religion. If there were NO religion, it STILL would have occurred! And I HAVE known people that seemed to give credit for the good they did to religion. HECK, look at danny thomas! I forget the problem he had, but he prayed to a saint and promised to start a hospital if he got that. He DID! He named it after the saint. "SAINT JUDE". Here's the history on their site:

      History

      The truth is that the bad in the old testament was sometimes for a reason, and sometimes AGAINST the religion. NON is considered right anymore. The adherents in the new were chastised even THEN. I have known many mormons that had REMARKABLE strong will power, etc... I can't speak to the history of them or islam.

      I have also seen a lot of bad done by ATHEISTS, and various CULTS!

      Not meant to be religious, only to bring some balance. If only it WERE something so simple.

        Rather blaming religion or lack of it, perhaps we could say "Ungodliness". With the view that God is kind, forgiving, generous, patient, slow to anger - ie epitomises that which is good.

        Ungodliness is selfishness, pride/vanity, greed, lust, impatient etc.

        It is not the religion per se, but the behaviour of the individual that causes the problems. It is whether or not people actually live their religions or not.

          I certainly wasn't blaming LACK of it. I said that only because it seems to have a POSITIVE impact also. If it had NO positive impact, I would say GET RID OF IT! As far as I am concerned, I am an atheist. I have said I was an agnostic for DECADES. Oh, I TRIED to believe. I was even effectively called a zealot by some(due to apparent passion and effort, NOT anything anyone would consider bad). But I just CAN'T believe. ICSM but, you know... It is a pity, because I DID meet some nice people, etc...

          I was just saying that to blame it for all of the ills, or directly for any, is wrong. SURE there were "leaders" that grew up in its ranks and were followed in its name. That has happened elsewhere devoid of religion.

          Of course, all of this is academic. Some pretend, in order, to see their various needs met, and some seem battle hardened to believe. If you burned down every place of worship and outlawed it, and even killed the main leaders and all the pastors, it would simply spring up elsewhere. Whole countries and superpowers have tried. AGAIN, not advocating, merely stating.

          And please note, I am not speaking of ANY one religion. ALL have been persecuted. EVERY ONE! In fact, to some degree, all have been even in the last decade. Go back a couple decades, and all of the major religions(meaning the top 4 in the us) have seen people die because of it. Go back a hundred years or so ago, and probably all the religions have.

          HEY, getting a LITTLE off subject... Anyone see "the obsolete man" on the twilight zone? PERFECT illustration of my point. He EVEN let the judge out before the bomb went off. Yet he kept a Bible even though it could mean his death. The society declared God to be a myth. Owning a book was bad enough, but the Bible was worse. Of course even his CHARACTER probably would have known that such a whimpering judge would be deemed "obsolete"!

          For those that don't know, if there are ANY, it was an episode where the protagonist was declared to have no benefit to society and to be "obsolete", because he was a librarian, and books were ruled to be contraband, and were outlawed. He was allowed to determine HOW he should die. Since the protagonist didn't like this, etc... he kept his method a secret from the judge, and even invited the judge to come to watch him die.

          The judge HAD to come, to show that he had no fear etc... Eventually, the protagonist revealed to the judge that he was to die in a bomb explosion that would destroy the room. The judge started watching the clock, and said HE would not be allowed to die. The protagonist said that the others would enjoy it more to simply sit back and watch the show, since it was televised! The protagonist revealed the bible, and sat back to read. The judge PLEADED on the mercy of the protagonist, who let him out. The whole thing, of course, TELEVISED!

          The protagonist died, of course, but when the judge came to work the next day, he found he was replaced! The first case on the docket was that HE was obsolete!

      Do you realze that out of the 6 biggest religions that have been attacked for what they are, FOUR were created out of variants of the other 2, but are really not similar, and were WELL documented? Of the remaining two, one came from the other, and its adherents say it is a fulfillment. The oponents either say it is a cult, or different. Of course neither of them is really well documented and nobody REALLY knows when they started.

      BTW YEAH, I know, there are OTHER religions that have been attacked. Some because the state or culture didn't like them, and some because they preached hatred others didn't like.

      My point? Some seem DESTINED to create religion AND, in its absence will CREATE it. Anyway, CULTURES cause MORE wars. Religion is a kind of psuedo culture. at least pseudo cultures can cross cultures and bring some TOGETHER! HECK, EVEN during WWI there was a sudden ceasefire and PEACE on december 25th! Christmas truce - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia That must have been something. To go from bitter enemies, to singing and relaxing for a bit. Who knows, some may even have remained friends after WWI! But the war went on. GRANTED the cultures were similar, but that didn't help during the war.

      Not meant to create a religious discussion, just saying....

      This seems to be (in a loooong winded way) (on Wiki) the same thing Aldous Huxley said about 'doors of perception'.

      I have been literally shocked over the years that what seems 'obvious' to me about the consequences and 'ripples' of consequence of actions, is not the same for me as a lot (but by no means all) of people.


      People who have had many, lets say (problems and tragedies) in life in my opinion are far more apt to have empathy for 'bad' things, than people who haven't.

      Comes from an overly protected lifestyle and seeking comfort and safety above reality.

        i would say it is overpopulation, like others have said. but overpopulation in itself is a consequence, not a cause. if we went deep enough, probably we would get to the point of saying that the problem is human intelligence that has not been balanced enough by emotional maturity.

    Egocentricism then maybe -- the question was the WORLD's greatest problem and here everyone is contorting that to mean what are HUMAN's greatest problems.

    Hate to clue people in, but there is a LOT more to the world than humans. We are just the factor causing most of the problems on the globe.

    So often we hear the phrase 'man's inhumanity to man.'

    I think that this is a big problem that spawns so many other problems in the world. Perhaps not the greatest problem, but certainly one that is very near the top of the list.

    As Robbie Burns put it:

    Many and sharp the num'rous ills
    Inwoven with our frame!
    More pointed still we make ourselves
    Regret, remorse, and shame!
    And man, whose heav'n-erected face
    The smiles of love adorn, -
    Man's inhumanity to man
    Makes countless thousands mourn!

    I recently came across an article about human dignity and what happens when someone is humiliated. (Emotional Competency - Dignity) The author of the site states: “All of history is the quest for dignity.” ~ Leland R. Beaumont

    Perhaps the greatest problem on earth is the violation of the dignity of our creator, his creation and creatures, including man.

    TL,

    There aren't so few greedy as you imply. In fact, a LOT of criminals got there because they were GREEDY! Martha stewart was in jail because she was GREEDY. And FRANKLY, if I had enough, I wouldn't care if I made a PENNY! I might go to europe and teach english or some such.

    SOME may think I am filthy rich, etc.. I have several accounts that have more than I earned in a YEAR at my last job. But I am simply trying to save for retirement, and handle inflation. And they bill me out sometimes at 5 times what I make. Some might think that THEY are greedy, but they have other people to pay, and have to provide for times like now when work is slow. And HEY, if there weren't greedy people taking from people like me, we could have retired already.

      I salute you for your drive to financial independence.

      I really wish you personally all the best.

      I hope you have someone to share your success with.

      You and I have demonstrated that we are are on direct opposite sides of most political issues, attitudes and policies since I joined in April 2008 so I'll just say...

      "whatever" to the first part of your first paragraph regarding Martha Steward and criminals in general.

      IMHO, the greed of a relatively few such as...

      - large financial institutions - around the world...

      ...is what got the world into this current economic mess we're in right now.


      If they hadn't been involved in those CDO's (credit default obligations) AKA derivatives the great recession of 2008 would not have happened.

      All The Best!!

        You ARE right in all that you said, and THANKS for the well wishes, but the CDOs and derivatives were there for a reason. All the DEBT MANY of THOSE debt owners turned out to be greedy. MANY of the rest fell prey to the scammers that were THEMSELVES greedy. ALSO, someone had to SELL them. MANY buyers were misled, and some were just trying to do right by the community, so I'll discount that.

        HECK, I got calls from SEVERAL of them almost calling me an IDIOT for not going with them. WHY didn't I go with them? It made NO SENSE! I thought what is in it for THEM! Well, it turns out that in one way or another, they were TEASER rates! When they showed their real ugly selves, people started going into default. As for ME? I am finally down to where I am only paying twice what they claimed I could. At the tie, I was paying almost 3 times. But I know the maximum term, I know the rate, and it is something I can pay.

        HECK, QUICKEN is trying to sell the same sort of junk, but at least THEY are somewhat honest about it. I mean they try to rationalize it using reasoning that is reasonable for STABLE climates. Right now, it is HOGWASH.

        Hey, I don't fault people for wanting to save some money, but when someone LIES to get soeone into something that INCREASES risk, and will probably have them paying MORE, just to make a commission, WOW!

          But the similarity is you see problems as specifics that deal with people and with money. The world you see and care about is the result of your own personal experience and your own thoughts. That's how all of us operate.

          I tend to zoom out and think about big pictures. It disconnects me from others at times as I can argue both sides of the coin - and mean it.

          The world in its natural state has no social conscience and no financial interest. Those are civilized tasks we take on ourselves. The world is an amazing natural environment that supports a living food chain.

          Being at the top of the food chain, we take on many goals and thoughts and responsibilities yet should the food chain collapse, people are perhaps the least likely species to survive.

          Ever wonder if many thousands of years into the future another life form might be discussing people in the same way we talk about the "dinosaur age"? Wouldn't that be a hoot?

            Kay - exactly what is happening right now. In EVERY ecosystem, when supply is ample, the dominant species will over populate and destroy it's own supply, then it either completely dies off, or most of it does. Humans have had the audacity to think they are not part of the ecosystem. Somewhere we got the feeling we were controllers and above ecosystems.

            I've said this so many times, yet people don't understand what is going on - we are IN the 6th great extinction. Right now there is worldwide legislation and worldwide scientific attempt being made to restore ecosystems so WE don't succumb to the extinction. We have tipped past carrying capacity and it looks like population growth will continue. In some places they even encourage it because of "financial" reasoning. This is a deadly reasoning right now.

            I don't know if you've noticed this or not - but they say that we will reach 9 bil people very quickly -- you never hear of estimates after that. Why? Because it's the death number. There is no way we can survive if population increases that high. Not a bat's chance in hell. Right now we are looking at a mass die off by the time we reach 7 bil. That's why the rush in ecosystem restoration. Legislation is helping because most just won't bother if not forced to. In around 10 to 20 years from now, there will be no more underground copper. There are other metals and minerals we are running that low on, too - but the one that we really rely on most for our way of life is copper. About the time that is exhausted other than via recycling, we are going to be able to feel and SEE the true impact of what we've done.

            If we experience a widespread global cold spell that freezes crops worldwide, you can watch for wars for supplies and major death tolls. We are right now headed for the first naturally caused famine in thousands of years. The others were politically caused by jacking around distribution. For the first time, we are looking at NATURAL famine. People, in general, are just not seeing the true extent of what we've done yet. Once people start dropping by the millions, they will see it - but it's too late. It may already be too late, but at least we're trying now.

            They just aren't very good at making the average guy on the street understand how extreme it's gotten yet. I assume that the silence will change in about 5 years from now. I predict about that time things will have become so extreme that they will have no choice but to come clean about exactly how desperate the situation is. Right now, they are fooling themselves thinking that with a population crisis they will be able to build sustainable ecosystems. Actually, there are consortiums going on to figure out how to get people to limit population growth, and adapt more sustainable lifestyles willingly. After the September composium of nations on the issue - don't be surprised if some very stringent changes in public regulations, etc. are publicized.

              Therein lies the conundrum with people. They don't believe anything until it directly affects them or someone they know.

              What will happen (if it hasn't already) is that tipping points are quietly passed while people are still arguing about a potential tipping point. From then on you can't make corrections - you can only react to conditions and limit damage.

              That's where we are eventually going -we just don't know how long it will take to get there.

              You're RIGHT. And this is one problem with automation, etc.... Look at how lions, etc hunt. If they go after a herd, they may target ONE creature. When they succeed, they have ONE, and the others get away. Things can be replenished. What do HUMANS do? Use various animals and/or vehicles, to herd the creatures up. ALL may be caught! HOPEFULLY the people will think, etc... And at least the creatures will survive. They may eat them ALL though, or they may get a disease that a herd wouldn't. BANG, the ENTIRE HERD is WIPED OUT! Granted, it is only one HERD, but what about tomorrow? Next Week? Next Year? We don't have to guess, we have SEEN it!

              And GUESS WHAT! Humans are doing it to THEMSELVES! Oh SURE, they do it WILLINGLY! They may not even think about it. Humans were once more nomadic, looking for new places to stay, etc... The Bible says the Jewish people did this for 40 years! Anyway, that separated people. When a plague came, like the black plague, it wiped out one part of the world, at least in part, and others could go on blissfully ignorant of the same thing. What about TODAY? Well, ONE canadian flight attendant is credited with spreading AIDS all across the US, and who knows where else? Granted, some conspiracy theorists deny that account BUT, even if they are right, my point is made!

              And I HAVEN'T even spoken about food or money yet. Long story short? More people means more space needed! The most usable non built land is FARM land, so food supplies DROP. More people means more food needed! >people+<food=>starvation! And with money? same_value+>people=>poverty!

              I KNOW many here might not like the reference, and I am an atheist, but I HAVE studied it! The first horseman of the Apocalypse is basically poverty and starvation! He says basically "A weeks wages for a days grain"! If you realize how important grain was then, the guy might as well have said an atom bomb is on its way.

              The idea that more people can tip this balance is NOT a new, obscure, unusual, or unproven idea, it is FACT!

            Kaye,

            I DO zoom out to see the big picture, and be objective. There have been times I have even been for things that would HURT ME basically, because others need them.

            The world in its natural state DOES have a financial interest, whether they realize it or not. I heard JUST YESTERDAY about a mother raccoon apparently teaching her kids to steal OH, NOT money, but a fanny pack. Maybe they liked the look, maybe they were just being trained, or maybe it was the open energy bar. Who knows. But they took it. And even some of the american indians were known to keep slaves.

            Well, money isn't really money. THINK ABOUT IT! Money is supposed to be a standard currency that can be given to others because you did something of value for another. In a way, it is a simplified form of BARTER! See the connection? MONEY=WORK! MONEY=GOODS also! So if a thief steals all your money, they have effectively made you a slave for the time you worked to get it. So an animal understands the ideas BEHIND finance, and USES THEM, even if they know NOTHING about money. There are ants that even save leaves to cultivate a fungus that they then eat. Kind of like interest. In fact, I think they called it interest because it makes it INTERESTING to investors. Of course HERE I am using slave with regard to work, but a lack of money DOES reduce your options too.

            Yeah, on Star trek, they envision a utopian society where "there is no money". Of course, at times, they talk about credits. And the one thing in the world that is SORELY lacking is ALTRUISM! You NEED altruism for a communist society, or one like startrek, to survive! HECK, you need a degree of altruism for socialism. If that degree is not 100%, the whole thing will likely collapse eventually. So HOW could star trek get people to do their jobs?

            And altruism only helps those that surround you. Another planet is isolated, why would THEY simply serve humans? Money is different because they could trade it with other planets which may eventually trade with the earth.

            Altruism is a kind of "pay it forward". In fact, "pay it forward" was all about altruism, and the personification of it. Even in the movie, the protagonist lost faith because there wasn't 100% altruism. In fact, it was quite LOW! Of course, they DDI jusge it a success eventually because of the people that did.

            For those that didn't see the movie, basically a kid had an idea. He would do something nice for a person as long as they promised to do likewise to others. If the world were 100% altruistic, that one event could have caused everyone to revert and have world peace, although we are said to have different countries primarily due to a lack of altruism! It would have been great. But few really followed through, IIRC.

              Raccoons don't steal - that's only a human applying his traits to another species.

              Raccoons forage. They aren't learning to steal - they are learning to find food. It's not the same thing. A puppy or kitten will repeatedly try to get food you have in your hand - they stop trying to get YOUR sandwich or treat as they grow up. It's not because they learn not to steal - they just learn that food is not available.

              And even some of the american indians were known to keep slaves.
              That's true of many civilizations. Our view is that of guilt as it associates with our society - but over the centuries and today, the strong dominate the weak. It's something humans fight against but the concept is the natural order.

              I recently donated to a cause mentioned here - it was to provide desks for children in another country. Don't have the link now but it was a way to help a specific person(s) by making their life better.

              But I look at some of the problems and famines on the news and feel detached because they don't become personal to me. I can't solve them and don't have the resources to make even a dent in them.

              I think knowing about various world problems and giving the issues some contemplation is useful even if I can't fix the problem. It's only when people become AWARE that problems begin to be addressed. The more awareness - the more solutions.

                Potato potahto, my point is made, and valid. The racoons KNOW that it is something WE care about. HECK, to doubt that would be to say they couldn't detect patterns and remember that are NECESSARY FOR SURVIVAL.

                kay
                Yep to all. Don't think I haven't tried the same. I have tried to help on nearly ALL levels!

                money
                food
                transportation
                shelter
                general assistance
                teaching
                a little help here and there
                donating assets
                etc...

                And in general I was lucky if I even got a tax deduction.

                The result?
                SOME VERY VERY poor may have gotten back up on their feet. I estimate that I helped boost their chances from about 0% to near 100%. I haven't really tracked them.

                I fed about 7 families in one way or another. Some of them may have been able to eat a nice middle class meal for as much as a WEEK!

                I helped probably a dozen people with transformation.

                I spent well into the tens of thousands of dollars.

                I helped a number of people get jobs, or increase their viability, or get better jobs.

                I helped maybe a half dozen companies stay in business, though I got paid NOTHING for THOSE.

                Still, I would probably PAY thousands of dollars simply to find out another good way to help nations or communities that can be accepted and work at a low cost/effort.

                OH, I can think of LOTS of ways, but most wouldn't be easily accepted.

    Deep enough to drown in it Kay. Maybe it's about time, though.

    In NV they are now allowing bears to be hunted again. Why? Because we've taken so much of their natural territory they have nowhere to go but into human populated areas. So the answer is to shoot them instead of to learn about them and deal with living as part of their natural ecosystem. Lot of snotty little city people trying to inhabit natural areas. They do it by wiping out the nature they claimed to love so much when they get there.

    I saw an article - can't remember who by, but a scientist or group of - just saying I never validated the information or research. They say that humans are evolving into two species. One is a higher functioning being and the others are going back toward caveman status - becoming fat, stocky, and losing logical reasoning ability. While I can't verify the validity of research or the scientists credentials -- One trip out to anywhere a lot of people are is enough verification for me.

    Steve - it's not just that we have almost 7 bil people, most that eat meat, that is the problem - the problem is that we are stripping and poisoning both plant and animal habitats. Global scientific study has turned up how fragile ecosystem balance is. People LOVE to think that rodents are useless but they perform some seriously important functions in their own habitats. Seed dispersal for one. They aerate and turn soil and help ground water absorption during heavy water. They provide food for larger species and eat bugs, helping to control insect populations. Even in farm lands they are more benefit than harm. Stop killing the owls with rodent poison and build grassland borders and a farm becomes much more ecologically sustainable. The grasslands help control all that damned poison they insist on spraying on our food, too because the grasses inhibit it from migrating to waterways. Bats? People are tearing the snot out of bat habitats, yet they are one of the most effective natural insect control mechanisms on the planet - one bat can eat 600 mosquitoes in an hour. Even the termite colonies in the African grasslands have been found to be important factors in that environment.

    We've decided that XX species are inconvenient and try to kill them off - that starts chain reactions that can't be stopped if we drive something to extinction.

      Well, some that are de-evolving are skinny, and some that aren't are fat. Otherwise, I agree. Too bad the gametes are still compatible. 8-(

Seed dispersal for one. They aerate and turn soil and help ground water absorption during heavy water. They provide food for larger species and eat bugs, helping to control insect populations. Even in farm lands they are more benefit than harm. Stop killing the owls with rodent poison and build grassland borders and a farm becomes much more ecologically sustainable. The grasslands help control all that damned poison they insist on spraying on our food, too because the grasses inhibit it from migrating to waterways. Bats? People are tearing the snot out of bat habitats, yet they are one of the most effective natural insect control mechanisms on the planet - one bat can eat 600 mosquitoes in an hour. Even the termite colonies in the African grasslands have been found to be important factors in that environment.

      We've decided that XX species are inconvenient and try to kill them off - that starts chain reactions that can't be stopped if we drive something to extinction.
      If this is about the crack I made about rats eating grain, SORRY. It was a metaphor.

      Yeah, have a few spiders living with me, I leave them alone. There at least WAS a colony of ants outside that tried to get closer to my home. I HATE them, but generally leave them alone. Bats are fine, just not in my home! When I was in bodfish, the home I lived in had bats in the attic. I don't even think the poor guy was hurt. He, or she, sorry, I can't tell, was sprayed with water, when found. I used to have a hamster. They're cute. Outside of SOME insects, like ants and roaches, I leave them alone, etc... And HEY, I have a number of animals living on my property. They're safe!

    Greed number one as it leads to corruption. This corruption has led to the corporatocracy of America as big business fuels and runs this country through the policies they influence. It also leads to unemployment due to outsourcing and cutbacks. Always having to make a profit every quarter. It can even be stated that it leads to hunger as I'm sure there could be ways to feed more people.

    Religious values assumed and pushed onto others. Between what happens here in the U.S., being the weakest version, to terrorism and many wars throughout the centuries.

      You are like a woman I met in a city council meeting. I think she was there just for the free doughnuts. She ate doughnuts as she kept saying that there was a problem that needed to be solved., EVEN after I already provided the solution! I literally said "SOLVED IT!"! "IT'S FREE TO ALL!"! "IT IS RUNNING!"! "Simply give me the data you have on charities, and people like that cop at midnight with the family with the dog that needed to place them can get help 24/7/365 at ANY time of the day or night!!!!!"! Open and shut, HUH!?

      I guess the councilman's assistant felt it was too simple and wouldn't get the attention he wanted!

      In NV they are now allowing bears to be hunted again. Why? Because we've taken so much of their natural territory they have nowhere to go but into human populated areas. So the answer is to shoot them instead of to learn about them and deal with living as part of their natural ecosystem. Lot of snotty little city people trying to inhabit natural areas. They do it by wiping out the nature they claimed to love so much when they get there.
      Sal we're having a bear season here in my county for the first time in around 100 years. We do it different here though. It's not about them encroaching into human areas, it's about not letting the population get to large for the land to support it. Wish we'd do that with those two legged critters walking around
      So to answer the original question.
      Humans are of course.

      Hmmm..., the world's greatest problem?

      It's been mentioned 3 or 4 times in these post.

      Sometimes simplicity is more complicated than Differential Equations... the way we a trained to process.

      Simply look in the mirror.

      THAT is the world's greatest problem...,everything is there, past, present,future.

      Every element in the universe is found in some measure in the Human Being.

      That makes us the universe's greatest laboratory....that means everything that can come into existence, whether cosmic , planetary or trivial is located within.

      The Black Hole or hole's that is out there, has a DIRECT relation to what's happening inside the Human Being.

      9 planets, 9 systems of the body, just as one example.

      The speed of sound, the speed of thought, the speed of light, the circumference of the earth, the rate of rotation of earth and other forces of nature have a direct mathematical , almost mirror-like ratio of stats as the systems of the body.

      That means any invention or creation 1 Trillion years from now, "YOU", the person in the mirror, has the same base elements both mental and physical, NOW, that will bring the unperceivable and unimagined into existence in the future.

      The solutions are here, the solutions were always here, so the problem is that person looking back in the mirror.

      No one or thing has absolutely any power over you to make you do or believe anything.

      Not the government, not torture, not military might, nothing.

      Period.

      So if there is no solution, look in the mirror, the first place to start.

      It is MORE than a coincidence , in the physical, that when you point your 1 finger OUT, at least 3 ( the eternal judges ) fingers point IN, back at you.

      It is MORE than a coincidence that the physical eye can see OUTWARD, but cannot see INWARD.

      With all our technology, experience, education and bravado, the vast majority are simply children with our finger on the trigger, children with our finger on the nuclear button.

      Go watch some kids under 7 and simply imagine them with suits, ties, briefcases and dresses with higher tech materialism and developing the ability to INTERNALIZE the outward mannerisms of a child.

      "Growth , growing or maturing" is, to some extent, people turned actor, acting like we have outgrown that part of our life, that we have mastered that phase, because what, we are now 62 ?

      No matter what HAS happened or WILL happen, some how, some way, we CHOSE it and have made up our minds looooong ago what our choice will forever be.

      THAT has effect on your surrounding , even the forces of nature itself, whether you perceive it or not.

      With all this technology, the surface has not even been scratched.

    IMHO, there isn't a "world's greatest problem." Just a bunch of problems; some entity (governments, groups, activists, individuals, etc.) choose to turn these problems into their private agendas, for a multitude of reasons (money, power, prestige, etc.) - suddenly now it's a great problem we must deal with!

    Think of it kind of like 'the squeaky wheel gets the grease' type of scenario. If the wheel squeaks loud enough it draws attention and is dealt with appropriately; and end of problem.

    The world is quite different though with problems everywhere however, man cannot fix the squeaking...

      Greatest problems: Lies and greed

      We live in an abundant world. I don't buy into the over-population theory. That's because I don't buy into the scarcity-mindset at all. That is what the advocates of eugenics would have you believing. (Sorry, Sal.) Those who advocate decreasing the world's population believe that there's not enough resources for the world, when in fact, there's plenty.

      We don't need to be consuming as much as we are. When people think there isn't enough, they hoard, they get greedy, and consume more. I see this behavior time and time again among people who have little money, but when they do have money they tend to over-do everything: drink, eat, etc.

      It's very interesting to watch people.

      I don't believe people are inherently bad either. Again, the media shows you nothing but bad stuff, so we are brainwashed into believing that most people are bad, that everything that happens is because we are "bad".

      Have we, the people of Mother Earth, made mistakes - serious ones? Yes! The biggest mistake we've made is trusting the wrong people - corrupt government leaders, corrupt corporations, and the mainstream media who are puppets of both.

      I don't think it's too late to change the course of the future of this planet. But it's going to take the collapse of existing infrastructures before people are going to finally wake up.

      Peace out...

    The greatest problem of the world today can misdirect into as many different directions as you can but IMO it all stems from the inability of people to focus on the basics of respect and morality.

    We are conditioned on a daily basis to become a disposable society, bombarded with information, taught quickly and forgotten even quicker and most of all we miss the basic principals of respect and morality. A cycle that I am sure all of us see on a daily basis, yet to break that cycle we have to get back to the basics of human interaction and respecting each and everyone and a solid moral foundation.

    Now everyone's morals are differently, so I will not go into which ones are right or wrong but regardless of background, race, religion, belief etc etc respect is in all of those. If you continue to disregard respect and the adornment of another fellow human, even those that we really do not want to, we break down trust within ourselves which continues to bleed out everywhere.

    So IMO you don't have to be a "tree hugger" to love everyone and show some respect down to a level that you actually feel you are going out of your way to show someone else you do respect them.

    There IS an overpopulation problem. And ALL poor people live on land that COULD support them earlier. HECK, I heard of tribes that have too many kids and, eventually, some are left to starve! And various countries, like the US, are playing tricks to have fewer companies use less space to create food, and fewer plants are grown. That means LESS oxygen, less genetic diversity, less of a selection, and less oxygen. and the problem is getting WORSE. And *****NOBODY***** is monitoring it! How much longer before plant species die out? It has happened BEFORE when they were spread all over. Luckily some didn't die out and could replenish the rest. NOW, there is less of a spread! How much longer before oxygen is too low? It happens in the oceans sometimes and isn't pretty! How much longer before we have major plagues spread in the food supply, or have it poisoned? moderate events have already happened MANY times in the past decade! To handle reduced selection, there are imitations and we ship stuff from elsewhere. NOT GOOD!

    And what of the monsanto garbage?

    And the population of the US is not only growing, but many new inhabitants tend to have more kids, so it will get closer and closer to exponential. and more and more simply ask for handouts!

        Contorting? Every problem the world has that you can cite is told from the human perspective, so it's not unreasonable to answer the question as it relates to the problems of humanity.

        Just saying "people" are the biggest problem is a little too cynical for me. I think most people are mostly good, and even people who are more bad than good have some good in them. So for me, it comes down to which part of the human is the worst, and as I said, in my opinion it's either greed or vanity.

          I'll rephrase "people" into "high number of people". We have crossed over earth's carrying capacity - good or bad, isn't even an issue --- too many is the issue. We have caused the onset of the 6th greatest extinction and are now facing the onset of famine and water crisis. Our numbers will be diminished so rapidly in a crop crisis that people's heads will spin. There's only so much land you can clear - ecosystem unbalance we can cause before we succumb to it. That's just science. While politicians and other unmentionable group leaders refuse to deal with the over-population issue, we are about to find out that humans are part of nature, not above it. We got egotistical and selfish and we're going to pay for it. Over 1/6 of the world population is already endangered, yet we keep breeding at unbelievable speed. One year of crop failure will level that billion and put another billion or two in the endangered category.

          To me - that is a major problem. Unfortunately - the problem has become so pronounced there is only one answer. We don't have to look at it. The earth takes care of itself.

    It's amazing how many speak of poverty. They usually mean of cash/ANY tangible commodities, like gold. You DO realize that, for a time, the US had no standard currency. Currency is a relatively new invention, in the scheme of thngs. A cougar will be JUST as likely to attack buffett as he would the poorest person. Greed is Also not a reason for a lot of the worlds poverty. And money and wealth is a funny thing.

    NO person that has more than a few neurons is going to bury all their money or something. If they keep it in a bank, or put it in gold, or buy bond or stock, it DOES go to other people. Hoarding just doesn't happen that often. and that money, somehow or another, creates other jobs, or helps people. Let's say that buffet puts a billion dollars into a bank. The bank figures he is unlikely to want all the money back in a hurry, so they invest. A guy comes in to get a loan to buy a home. He gets loaned some money, maybe from buffets deposit. That guy buys the home. Maybe the seller buys a subway sandwich sho franchise and puts people to work. If buffet comes for all of his money, they can get it from other accounts. By law, banks only have to keep a certain amount of money on hand.

    Investing in bonds, BY THEIR NATURE, is a LOAN! Often to a city, state, or company. Of course SOME are to pay for groups of personal loans. When you buy stock, the bulk of the money goes to another person or company. If you buy gold, the seller gets the money.

    Gee, I may be "hoarding" maybe $500 out of the hundreds of thousands I have invested. I only have like $200 on me. And that is an unusualy high amount. Don't worry, it will be gone in a couple weeks!

    OH, and I squander like $30/week to pay this little girl to water my lawn. She might buy CANDY with it, or save for college. HORRORS! Of course, if she buys candy, those candy makers can maybe keep their jobs, and the store can pay employees. If she saves for college, her parents will probably want it in a mutual fund, which will invest as I described.

    Religion is the biggest problem in the world, in my opinion. The largest of many unnecessary differences that people are willing to kill each other more.

    Even though there are so many answers I could give,
    I'll just give one because your question refers to one.

    To keep it simple, it's lack of love.

    This is a question that has bothered man since man.One of the greatest problems is ignorance.
    We all pretty much know what has to be done ,to make our world a tolerable place,but we all seem to ignore the facts. Then there are those that know better than every one else. They turn what could be a wonderful place to live,into a hardly livable place to be .

    Apathy has to be up there on the list. A lot of the evil that happens in the world occurs because the bad guys figured they could get away with it. And a lot of the time, they're right.

    Double standard in terms of judgement. Law is not equal yet for everyone. It is still biased. This is why all the problems are occurring around the world.

      I understand as do several others here. Unfortunately, hope is one of the first things that goes in this situation.

      I hope this clears up for you quickly. Keep us posted if you would like.

      The monetary system, and the keeping of secrets!


      If we equally shared wealth, (gold, coal, iron, etc) and dispelled cash, then most of the worlds evils would disappear!

      Keeping secrets that would revolutionize the world!

      But l suppose that removing the first would open up secrets! :rolleyes:

        Your 'equally shared' wealth would last all of about 3 hours from the time it was split up. Wouldn't be very much longer after that the distribution of wealth would be just about as it is right now.

        The biggest problem in the world is, as it always has been, people who use force to compel other people to conform to their vision of what 'should be'.

    The inner world of the minds of men and women. That, my friend, is what I would categorically say is the greatest problem. Once we deal with the roots, that is, the way we think, once we change our thoughts to good stuff, then and only then will we be on the way to manifesting a greater, better, happier reality in every sense. The world's current problems are simply a manifstation of our collective thought patterns as the human race. Inner world:rolleyes:.
