50 Questions Day 5

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind

     What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

      The one thing in the world that I want changed would be HATE. I know this can include a broad range of things but I believe that hate is the one thing that if changed would fix the world.

Lets look at a couple of examples of hate. Considering where I live, the south, perhaps the biggest example of hate is racism. While racism is not a huge issue any more in the conventional sense, i.e black and white, it is still an issue we deal with. Weather you are white guy and for some reasons look at blacks with a cautious eye or your black and you look at whites with a distaste because even though you know exactly the same amount as he does he still has the better job. These are still some of the stigmas we deal with today. Now for me personally for me I believe that no matter what color you are we should all be treated as equals. 
   Another example of hate would be religious hate. This hate is probably the prevalent of all in today's society. With the war in the middle east having turned into what everybody wants to thinks is a war between radical Islam and the west is I believe a religious war between radical Islam and Christianity. I have never understood why religions have to fight. I mean come on. This is a large planet. If you don't like someone's religious beliefs then stay in your own neck of the woods and make the best of what you have there instead of moving to a place where the primary way of religion is different than yours. Now while I am a Christian my self I have no problems living around those of different religions as long as you respect my religion and don't push your own.
Well I think I have rambled on enough for tonight I hope enjoyed this answer and I would love to know what you would answer. Have a good night all.

I would change everyone into a seeker of knowledge. so many people are content to stay I the dark, and have no interest in learning about the world. And ignorance is the starting point for hate/greed/envy/racism, etc.
