I think I’d instill a sense of compassion and empathy in every human being. A lot of positive change would happen all by itself, once that was in place.

I wish the nonsense called “religion” never happened.

I would do away with country music.

JenniferP's avatar

You have to make an exception for Reba though. She is awesome.

I too would eradicate any notion of religion from our history, present or future.

As religion, I would also eradicate money as a nearly definite confirmation of what is a human being, and where that human being stands. Wonder what the fuck people would be like without cash and religion though.
I guess back before money existed, people still ascribed their cultures and societies to a similar structure, but it seems kinda cooler to have one’s social status as decreed by battle scars rather than whether or not you can fuck someone over with your lawyer, or how many upskirt shots exist of you online, if you’re someone famous. and if you’re not someone famous, you did it for the money and I did not do this

I just wish some people would be kinder.

I would like to see people stop making excuses for their poverty lifestyle. Unfortunately I don’t know how to do that.

I would roll back the effects of Global warming.

“I would put an end to bullying.”
“I just like to give people a hard time.”
A slight anomaly?

Serial rapists and pedophiles convicted with irrefutable evidence would be immediately put to death. In public. Like hanging days of old, where you could buy meat pies, fruit pastries and such, then cheer when the evil bastards drop to their end.

Computer viruses and hijackers… Just so unnessassary. And most of what the above Jellies posted.:-)

@ucme-I guess I am a complicated person, what can I say?

ucme's avatar

Oh but you seem really simple to me.

KNOWITALL's avatar

I agree with Augustian, empathy and kindness in all human beings. But I’m kind of liking WillWorkForChocolate’s suggestion as well.

JenniferP's avatar

@ucme You do know I was just joking with you, correct?

I would reverse the trend of overpopulation. That would, in a single stroke, reverse man-made climate change, end expansion of operations that exploit our natural environment, reduce the demand on resources, and therefore several wars, and reduce the dominance of many large corporations.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@JenniferP Ok, I’ll let Reba and Willie Nelson live, as long as they promise to perform in sound-proof rooms that I am not in. They seem like cool people but their music, not so cool.

JenniferP's avatar

I don’t care about willie Nelson. Garth Brooks has a couple good tunes. Maybe we should spare him as well.

jonsblond's avatar

What @augustlan said. If you have to choose who you are kind to, you are no better than the people you despise.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@JenniferP I’m only excusing people on pure personality. That’s why I’m letting Willie live. I’m letting Reba live because you seem to be cool and you requested she survived. But I have to draw the line at Garth Brooks. LOL

Harold's avatar

I would eliminate people who want to eliminate religion (only joking- don’t kill me….).
Seriously, I would shoot my wife’s ex-employers, or better still, torture them slowly. If the world was rid of them it would be a better place (it was a religious organisation, by the way….)

ucme's avatar

@JenniferP I’d work on my technique if I were you…just sayin.

Paradox25's avatar

I would do away with rap music.

JenniferP's avatar

I would do away with rap too. It is much worse than Country.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@JenniferP I mostly agree with you, but I do like a little rap.

JenniferP's avatar

The only good rap song ever put out was “Ice, Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice. I will probably get laughed at for saying that but it is true. He did steal a guitar riff from David Bowie though.

And there are many good country songs. Seven Year Ache by Rosanne Cash for one.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@JenniferP I will take the laughter with you because I like “Ice, Ice, Baby” but I also love “Gangster’s Paradise” by Coolio, ICP’s “Let’s Go All the Way” and several Eminem songs.

Most songs nowadays are remakes or have stolen at least small parts of other people’s songs.

JenniferP's avatar

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal You should see the latest question that I submitted.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@JenniferP I would love to. Do you have a link to it?

JenniferP's avatar

It is “What are your favorite country songs?” I don’t know how to provide links. Go to my profile and look at the questions that I put out.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

Oh. To make a link all you have to do is go to your address bar and right click on the URL and when the drop box shows up click on “copy” then when you’re typing a message simpy paste the address or URL into the message box.

But I will avoid your question about country music because you seem like a nice girl and I don’t want to hurt your feelings by telling you country sucks. LOL

JenniferP's avatar

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal I don’t mind. You can come and cut it down all you want. I only like certain songs. I never actually listen to a country station.
