Everyone's approach to life is different, but there are some things many of us agree on. For example, recent economic conditions have resulted in homeownership being less attainable, while the pandemic and the Great Resignation have made us realize the value of freedom, comfort, and flexibility. We understand that celebrities can't save us and that things need to change if we want to wake up with a smile on our faces in this ever-changing world. Interested in what that could be, Reddit user MustPlayVR made a post on the platform, asking people, "What needs to die out in 2024?" Here are some of the most popular answers, big and small.

Counterpoint... It's possible that there's some merit in career politicians. How have we gotten to the point that any unqualified idiot that can get elected can run a country? There's something to be said for having the qualifications for the complex and nuanced job of administering a country/province/county/city, etc. That being said, I'll agree that lifetime appointments, (US Supreme Court Judge, or Canadian Senator come to mind), are probably not the best idea...

Totally. Here's something for you to think about: Obediently using businesses that don't pay business tax, like Starbucks means that they don't contribute anything to society, like funding schools and hospitals, whereas if you bought your coffee from reputable places that do pay tax, we'd have better services.

That is because you don't have a functioning press. Journalists are supposed to call out the politicians by asking critical questions, not just be a mic-holder that uncritically helps spread their hollow promises and baseless accusations.

Guns in general, with the exeption of those who acutally need such tools in their daily lives, e.g. hunters, hikers (in bear-land) or farmers that must protect their flock from wolves etc. They are not toys, and can be dangerous when uneducated people handle them incorrectly, or don't think things all the way through.

50 People Share Things That Are Outdated, Toxic And Should Be Retired Pumping in more and more advertisements into...*everything*, even premium/paid monthly subscriptions/streaming. Sports are taking longer and longer due to more ads. More ads are being injected into everything.

It's hard to imagine most ads are even effective at all. How many people have bought an item or service based on advertising? If anything it makes me more likely to not buy it, especially if the ad is particularly annoying or way overplayed.

Also, ad agencies used to put much more effort into ads/commercials. Commercials were never a good thing, but some used to be slightly funny or entertaining at least.

Listen, if the person they're helping is actually helped, then it's still a net positive. I'd rather see this type of content than pranks or potentially wasteful/harmful challenges or conspicuous consumption.

Organized religion in all of its forms always leads to violence. You want to worship magic space man in your own house that is fine, but stop talking about who has the better one in public. No one f*****g cares about your own internal delusions and the stockholm syndrome ticks you have developed from being indoctrinated into the largest cult on Earth. STFU.

I question this one as a generalisation. Even if child abuse and date rape were "acceptable" or at least not talked about in public until rather recently, that's no reason to ignore how they impacted people, as well as the people who claimed they were just "edgy" during the heyday os these practices.
