The possibilities seem pretty endless with this question. Where would you even start? Politics, the environment, war, brutality, hunger…
What would you say…?
AskReddit users talk about what they’d say if they had the whole world’s attention for one minute.
1. Here’s the plan…
“I would pretend to be god and just tell everyone to just suck it up and get along for once (obviously not in those terms).
I would give divine order to cease all aggression towards each other and to clean up the mess people have made of the planet as well as make it clear that homosexuality as well as expressions of sexuality is not sinful.”
2. Good one.
“Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ‘97, wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.”
3. Well, that’s not good.
“People of Earth, your attention, please. This is Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Hyperspace Planning Council. As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system.
And regrettably, your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Earth minutes. Thank you.”
4. I can get behind this.
“Be excellent to one another.
And party on dudes!”
5. Straight from the source.
“Hello, this is God speaking. You and your fellow humans have been making some mistakes in interpreting my teachings so I’m going to clarify. One. Be kind to everybody. And I don’t mean just some people. Everybody. Each single creature on this planet. Two. Take good care of the Earth.
You are ruining it with your actions and you should do better. Three. Don’t start any wars over this message. Or really any wars at all. Ever. If you have disagreement, talk it out like the adults you claim to be.
Thank you for your attention and I hope you will do better. “
6. Food for thought.
“You are judged by how well you treat all people; especially the ones you don’t like.
7. The purge.
“Welcome to the annual purge!
In 1 minute there will be no law! All emergency services will be suspended, good luck!”
8. Quiet time.
“Shut up. For 1 solid minute. Everyone just shut up.
No Corona talk, no politics, no texting, no social media, no gossip, nothing. Just shut up and do nothing for a bit. Everyone’s so busy. Just stop.”
9. Some good stuff in here.
“I would say, “the government is the people, not a couple of rich billionaires. A nation is the entirety of the population, each person holding as much worth, value and potential as anyone else. Do not let the few make u think your worth less than anyone else.
Our world is great, but it IS broken, only because we as individuals have forgotten that we hold the keys to peace, equality, prosperity, all we have to do is take it. The people at the top get away with bullshit because they assume they are better than everyone else, and it shows in policy, economy and during wartime.
How can we let the few tell millions to fight for their fat egos, or die for their wallet. People are people and their probelms remain comsistent no matter if your poor or rich, but the average person retains their humanity thru pain and suffering, but our leaders do not. It is not a matter of the positions that creates the devil, it is the man that lets his position turn him this way.
Those on top have stood their for too long, and its rotted their souls. If u look into your heart you will see it is not right. Look past the grandeur and typed messages, the scripted speeches. Look at the bottom line. The truth is written in their actions.”
10. That would cause some panic.
“We are from Illuminati and the current world situation has gone out of our controls, so there would be total Wipeout of humanity, except those 100 people we have chosen.
So Happy Death Day to you all.”
11. Short and sweet.
“Guys. This is god speaking.
I won’t help you, all your religions are fake and you guys better take care of your planet before I blow everything up.”
12. Take it to heart.
“The Earth is ROUND
Vaccines DON’T cause autism
The only people who should be deciding women’s reproductive rights are WOMEN
Your skin color DOESN’T make you better or worse than anyone else.”
13. Not a pretty picture.
“Fuck you idiots. You let politicians be corrupt and criminal without any repercussions. You let those rich people destroy the world for their golden yachts. You let racists and sexists and whatever else run wild.
You are all fucked and you are doing nothing about it. Why do you make kids when you also do nothing about them going to have a miserable life?’
14. That sounds familiar.
“This is management speaking. We’re sorry to tell you this, but your performance has quite been what we’ve been expecting so we’re gonna have to let you go. Buh bye.”
15. And then there’s this.
“Wash your fucking hands.”
16. I believe you!
“Help! I’m a Nigerian prince and I’m trying to get home to my castle…”
Now, what do you think about those responses?
If you had the chance to speak to everyone in the world, what would you say to them?
