1. Cancer- More Cannabis research, as well as testing out new things. Many Cancer patients are told that they are inoperable, and that treatment is helpless. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find cancer patients to test new rainforest plants and research chemical effects on their cancer, as long as regular human tests were done first.

2. World Hunger- GMOs are hated on like they are straight up poisons, all GMO means is "Genetically Modified Organism", which can range anywhere from a plants genetics being manipulated to produce more seed or fruit, to splicing the DNA of a jelly-fish into the genes of a pig. While it is true we shouldn't be putting corn on the market that has jelly fish DNA, or that produce their own pesticides. It is also true that if used properly, GMOs could solve the worlds food shortage, and actually give us a surplus.

3. Help Africa- We need to write history books, philosophy books and more that AREN'T meant for 1st world English students. Then we can begin to educate the world about itself. I am friends with a Nigerian who works for the government, and he said he never took a history class his entire educative career.
I was watching an idiot abroad, and it only costs around $700 to build a little house for a family in Africa... I don't see why it's not solved yet.

4. Discovering New Species- This goes hand in hand with Africa, World Hunger AND Cancer research. The Rainforests of the world need to be searched for new species of plants for cancer research, as well as new species that may be able to be bred with or spliced into the plants we currently use to make them have higher yields or more/less seeds, which in turn helps world hunger.

The more pertinent question today is whether farmers and ranchers will be permitted to use this new technology? While the affluent nations can certainly afford to adopt ultra low-risk positions, and pay more for food produced by the so-called “organic” methods, the one billion chronically undernourished people of the low income, food-deficit nations cannot."

I mean, duh it will take time, but NOT doing anything is the worst thing you can do about it.

The only other 2 things in the entire world that really need to be done, is:

1. The Abolition of the Private Vatican (not its traditions, just its secrecy), with a new democratic policy. Meaning every catholic bishops and cardinals, in EVERY country has their masses vote. Then a new pope is chosen. This will firstly open up the Vatican's ranks to the world, secondly it will make it where the people get to choose where the money they donate is going (not directly, but at least by representative).

This would also lead to a revolution in the church around the rest of the world, which means we will be electing priests and cardinals in our own towns eventually.

2. Abolition of the Royal family (not the traditions, just the bloodline). We need more marriages like Kate, where REGULAR people join the family. First off, I can't believe they just inbreed within their 300 families. 2nd, they have tons of money and make more every day, that doesn't need to be kept away from the people of the UK, let alone the people of the world.

For the world to get better we need a cosmic shift in conciousness

Uhm... all people at once? That does not sound like activism to me, more like wishful thinking :P

It can't happen at once, but if a few people reach their own shift and then help other people to do the same it can happen. Each person's shift must be inherently different, because each person is inherently different. To have a cosmic shift of conciousness all at once would harm our species

Coming to understand things in a more universal light, instead of always thinking about just you, thinking about everything, and the effect you are having on it, until eventually you realize that you are not the cause of anything, that your species as a whole is only the effect. I could go on and on but in reality as I have often said I cannot tell you the truth of a cosmic conciousness because your truth is always going to be different from mine man.
