If you could change something in the world, what would it be?


I would take away religion because I think it is not logical and it caused pain around the world (my opinion)

Aside from the obvious selfish choices like 'myself' this would require a lot of thought to narrow it down to get the biggest impact.

Make males and females equally physically strong (adults,) and everyone has both sets of reproductive organs. Mutually assured destruction.

Alternatively everyone gets some kind of mecha suit, but I think women should have some way of raping their rapists that they might find unpleasant. And if you give me a lot of power you know I'm going to go full Satan with it. Get some Hard Candy/Some kind of Hate **** going on all over the place.

Then sit back with some

Oh and I'm going to need a legion of half spider half female followers. Just because the aesthetic.

You know this post will need to be expanded over time. Lots of nightmare fuel to be added.

We need dragon librarians like Mr.Mordaut, I will have a purple dragon librarian. We also need magic schools.

I think I'd make everyone understand on a deep level that it's okay to be different, and it's okay for others to be different. Also eliminate this innate fear of anything we don't understand.

We could remove so much hate, bigotry and toxicity from people if the above were true. Though eliminating the indoctrination of children would also go a long way.

I also agree with this. The planet is already overpopulated, and I think that many of the issues that modern society faces could be eliminated if we just reduce the human population.

The problem with removing religion is that it would just be replaced with something else, like nationalism. Tribalistic behavior is unfortunately part of human nature -- what we'd need is to change that very nature. And religion wouldn't be a problem if people didn't always use it as an excuse to harm others.

What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It's the only thing that there's just too little of.

just give myself near absolute power and go from there. maybe a bit less power than that even. I'm not very good at creativity and starting from scratch. to have some limits would be good for me.

but yeah private cars would be banned. industrialised animal agriculture banned. luxury goods banned. frivolous travel banned. I feel like this list would grow and grow. of course the obvious things also, coal banned, deforestation banned. likely you would need a licence to have children. free birth control for everyone. free healthcare. free education. free housing. the UN given more power. standardisation of a lot of things and elements of communism alongside democratic government in areas like food production, construction, etc. inheritance would be extremely heavily taxed. both egalitarian and meritocracy running in parallel re distribution of wealth.

also I'd live in the forest with my many lovers etc etc. magic and superpowers and overcome enough obstacles to feel like I'm great etc etc.
