In your opinion, what is the number one problem facing the world today?
I have no idea. But I'm kinda scared of what future technologies could add to our menu for human extinction and human control. Such as AI, 3D printed bio warfare, mind decoding, mind control devices. Hopefully the counter technology is sufficient.
Definitely a big one.
Lack of tolerance and respect for the brotherhood of humanity and the sanctity of life.
Poverty, Disease, and War.
Out of curiosity, what is humanism's threat to the world?
Humanism is a system of thought that puts the emphasis on humanity rather than on God. The loss of a divine direction as well as the resulting decay in the fabric of society facilitates many of the evils society is grappling with today, imho.
I change my answer, people like bluecoffee.
Shit is about to get real.
Did I touch a nerve somewhere?
What will it be in two years then?
Fixing Obama's legacy
Lack of gratitude
Lack of empathy and/or deliberate spread of misinformation. I think that the two are working in conjunction and creating a downward spiral.
I can see what you mean.
The unholy molestation of government and economy by corporate and ultra-rich interests that give no shits about people, politics, or anything other than profit.
I don't even make a distinction between corporate interests and government anymore. It's just all one big clusterfuck.
Ha I agree with both.
Neglect of people who are suffering.
That regardless of our different beliefs or ideologies we all share this big giant ball we call Earth, and that it would benefit us to share resources rather than compete for them. We've lost our humanity.
I definitely can agree with that.
Lack of freedom.
Of resources, more specifically, but it could refer to intangible things, too.
If you're referring to food, we are actually living in an age of abundance. The issue is not really that we can't feed everyone, it's that it's hard to justify feeding someone who can't afford to pay for the food.
No, not food. The lack of food in certain areas is due to poor distribution and greed.
I'm with ya on that one.
Probably death. Death sucks.
Ha I don't know if we'll solve that one.
Religion involved with government
For me, it's over-population.
