If You Could Remove One Thing From the World, What Would It Be? People Responded.

Wow, this sure is a big question, huh?

The possibilities are really endless…

War, poverty, crime, disease, the list goes on and on.

If you could remove one thing from the world, what would it be?

AskReddit users shared their thoughts.

1. That would be nice.

“Intestinal problems.

I got diagnosed with severe IBS and a malabsorption issue a year ago and it has consumed my life and changed it. I’m so sick and tired of literally being sick and tired. It’s painful. My brother has Crohn’s disease and I h**e watching him suffer as well.

He got diagnosed at 8 and has been such a sick kid with hospitalizations and such. He’s almost 20 now and luckily lives a pretty normal adult life now, but the illness still controls his life in some aspects. Intestinal problems are no joke.”

2. Spot on.

“Unfit parents.

I’m positive it would solve many of the worlds problems, on many different levels.”

3. Gross.


Those little f**kers are resilient and reproduce a lot and can’t be k**led as easily as other bugs.”

4. Affects a lot of people.


I’ve been majorly affected by it and seen what it can do to others who lose their battle.

No one should have to feel that alone and sh**ty.”

5. Clean it up.


Without corruption a ton of the world’s problems would be addressed.”

6. No escape.

“The people calling for my car’s extended warranty.

Every. Single. Day. Block them and they sprout 2 more.”

7. All of them.

“Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Also, diseases like ALS.”

8. Bloodsuckers.

” Mosquitoes.

Just the ones thst suck blood.

The rest are ok, they are food for other animals.”

9. The root.


It’s the root of everything, isn’t it?”

10. No more.


Because as Khaled Hosseini said in The Kite Runner, “There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft… When you k**l a man, you steal a life.

You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.””

11. Yes.


Human trafficking is still a huge problem all over the world and many of our societal problems stem from it and a history of slavery.”

12. Sad!


Just seems so unnecessary but it plagues so many people for no particular reason and literally wrecks their confidence.”
