To narrow it down to just one thing, it’s hard. There is so much wrong with the world we live in. I would have to say, if I had only one choice, I’d say greed. Greed brings out the worst in people. Everything in society revolves around how much money you have, how much you make. It causes people to be money hungry, power hungry. It’s terrible. Hate is also brought on by greed. So without it, we’d have less hate.
I’m one of those people that believe that good walks with evil, because you have to have balance in the world. Too much of a good thing isn’t actually good. Utopian societies would never be successful because of people in general – we’re built in a way to be unique, which makes it impossible for us to all be the same. So, yes, we have to have bad things in the world, to balance out all the good. But if we could limit how often these bad things happen – that in itself would be progress.
What about you? If you could rid the world of one thing, what would you pick?
