I hate Disney Princesses Reimagined As Genocidal 20th Century Dictators but I'd probably go for influenza.

An actual influenza pandemic fucking terrifies me

I say religion because that would make the middle east a bit less shit which would bring us one step closer to world peace (until someone starts a war over some other stupid shit)

probably schizophrenia. we've managed to exterminate small pox, gotten pretty close with polio, we can eradicate malaria by eradicating mosquitos, AIDS by and large can be prevented through proper safety precautions (and we need to work on providing those to everyone), and cancer is just weird and i wouldn't classify 'cancer' as a disease in this context because 'cancer' is like 'some weird thing that is killing you probably' and encompasses a lot.

so yeah, schizophrenia.
it's all just coming back

organic bodies

lets all upload ourselves into some super computer or sweet ass robot bodies.

we can put fake flesh over it if being all roboty is weird to some.

then we can just live forever as long, as long as no one kills you or you fall into a black hole or something (prob just have back ups of yourself though, but is that backup actually you or someone new. hmmmm)
O.K.

I know there's research on whether mosquitoes are necessary for ecosystems to flourish, and this article which kinda blew up in popularity a few years ago says no, but this part disturbs me (from http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100721/full/466432a.html)

Without mosquitoes, thousands of plant species would lose a group of pollinators.


it goes on to say that none of these plants are essential for human use, justifying the eradication of mosquitoes. But that completely disregards the inherent value of biodiversity!!!!!!! People are still discovering new plants all the time, especially in tropical regions where mosquitoes are also prevalent. Who's to say that these plants are not useful when barely anything is known about them yet?

The article also does not specify whether they advocate eradicating all mosquitoes or just a few species. If so, which ones? How will they decide? It irks me that the uselessness of mosquitoes is just taken as fact when there is no consensus in the scientific community.

Also, there have been numerous advances in treating/curing all sorts of mosquito-borne illnesses. Disseminating them to areas where these diseases are endemic and treatment is not widely available would, in my opinion, be a far better use of resources than attempting to eradicate every mosquito in the world. The infrastructure and knowledge gained could be used for other types of medical treatment too.

Anyway I would eradicate cancer if I had to pick one.

They're trying to balance known harm against unknown, possibly non-existent benefits.

I get that. I usually err on the side of possible benefits and less destruction though.

Yea, but mosquitos are bastards. And unlikely to be the sole pollinators of plant species(it's not impossible, but it's more likely that they're not).

common cold because i have one now and I'm selfish. I'd rather get rid of cancer though.

Gates has nearly singlehandedly funded the research to vastly improve efficiency of anti malaria drugs, along with other preventative methods. Need more billionaires to choose a disease to eliminate.
