50 Current Political Issues In The World

A list created by: Lee Sonogan


“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics’. All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia. When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.” – George Orwell

How long until we solve the issues of half listed here? 50, 100, 200 years? I made this list because these decisions are important and we not should leave it up to politicians. Jean-Paul Sartre said “Man is fully responsible for his nature and his choices,”. You should at least open to being in the discussion in any of these issue topics.

“There has never been a time when I was not committed to, involved in, or caring of, the social and political issues of my world.” – Jessye Norman
