13066744-individuals had an opportunities to rewrite their story: how can they develop to learn from their past mistakes or look at different viewpoints and stories from others that can prevent them from crime or delinquent activities?
13106746-we created the space for others to feel themselves more deeply and connect with one another more authentically; if we listened.
13526764-we find a way to help more people feel that they belong, they can make a difference and they matter.
13676769- we saw people as people - human beings - and engaged more in dialogue and social enterprise - talk to people, be with them - and stick with them.
13896775- we could attend to the basic needs of others; - we could help society in basic skills for parenting, education and financial literacy - we could come together as a community with this focus in mind to reduce crime and delinquency
13926778we improved our education system, created more support systems for families, created a more sophisticated approach to rehabilitation of previous offenders
13966779laws and rules weren't designed to benefit those already in power.
14006780- we are more inclusive and if we manage to establish widespread human connection by forming safe relational spaces.
14116784We stop closing children's centres and removing money from parenting support! We work with children in schools to teach Resilience skills We try to encourage family change through a strengths based approach. I was running a drop in session in a children's centre when a very discouraged single Mum was sent to see me. Her small children were biting each other and a well meaning friend told her to bite them so they would learn! A warring neighbour spotted her and she came under social services report. I listened to her story - 'I never hit my children', 'It was only a nibble' etc. After listening I asked her 'if I was a fly on the wall in your house what would I see you doing well?' She burst into tears and said 'no one has ever thought I could do anything well' After some probing questions she decided she plays with her children well and we unpacked that. She was then ready to return to look at some alternative skills to biting! She went out with her head held high. She had made a slight shift in her identity and was more ready for change! Poverty and the gap between rich and poor breeds resentment and a sense of hopelessness.
14196786respect was culturally more fashionable. The lack of respect to society or property is something that is very hard to reverse.
14236789we took the time to listen and invested money and energy into the most vulnerable and at risk in society. research conducted on rehab in prison for example tells us that those we take the time to help, educate and support are significantly less likely to re-offend. It's sad that we are so quick to judge and condemn as a society.
14276792-more attention and resources are focused on the underlying roots as early as possible in the lives of offenders as well as focusing on improving the effectiveness of policing and rehabilitation of offenders.
14476799-there was improved equality of opportunity regardless of social or economic background.
14536802if we tackle education of our young generations addressing not just knowledge but also values if we had much much better leaders, which could improve the economy of i.e. a country while improving equality.
14676814-economic and social conditions improved for those most impacted. I believe it starts with equal access to education at a young age.
14756817- we turned the focus to breaking the cycle of crime through supporting young people from low socio-economic backgrounds in a practical and relevant way and providing mentors as they travail the tough decisions.
14856818-there was more spirituality in our lives-something to live for besides ourselves or material possessions.
14976825-we, as a society, actually cared enough about children to ensure that every child truly had access to high-quality food, education, health-care, and caring role-models no matter their social or economic background.
15016829- we educate and provide the foundations of a strong moral compass in young people
15026830-there were enough resources to do multigenerational interventions in dysfunctional families to break long terms cycles of abuse and poor parenting
15166837-education is more widely applied and economy standard is to be improved continously.
15266839-our society made great changes to the balance of work and personal life and closing the ever-growing gap between the poor and wealthy.
15376840-the relevant parties worked harder to understand, and invest in, preventing and deterring crime and delinquency. I believe 21st century law enforcement is increasingly recognising this by working more with government, prevention agencies and different sectors to address causal factors in a holistic sense.
15446842people had what they needed for a decent, contributing life, and there was more wisdom around, particularly for struggling young people who cannot fathom why things are as they are and have an energy to make it different in some way.
15506843- people didn't have to worry about the basics of food, shelter, etc and had enough of an education to be able to analyze the consequences of their actions.
15536844- young people had access to the world greater than what's right in front of them and people that are willing to invest in their full potential.
15586847-we improve health and economies of communities with high crime.
15616849- education and opportunity was more fairly distributed.
15706854-underserved communities were given more opportunities to find a productive outlet for their energy.
15906859-common values would play a stronger part in education and at work
15976864-If all children grew up with loving, conscious and self-aware parents and communities. If we completely changed our education system to raise the human, not just the intellect. If we lived in a society that afforded the same opportunities to all people regardless of status and wealth.
16096869- education was prioritised and children grow up in loving households - in whatever varied form that could take.
16146870- i am not sure i am the expert to answer this question, but i do though think that environment is really important. children need to feel secure and have support to see, set and achieve their goals. i think sometimes kids grow up in situations that make them more susceptible to crime/delinquency - and that is both rich kids and poor kids.
16246875-Young people were given more opportunities to further themselves. I don't think many people are born to be bad, they just end up that way because of their environment. Reduce their exposure to negative environments and you will reduce bad behavior.
16256876- education, health care and wealth opportunity were more equally distributed.
16746898-we spent more time and money listening, caring and helping create meaning for people and less time and money locking people up and excluding them from soceity
16796902we could all work together and fix the system, and the socioeconomic problems which are leading to crime and delinquency.
16806903we find effective way to influence on people` mindset and spirituality from their childhood and during all life.
16956910- we did a better job of supporting and nurturing our children and teaching them the power and joy of empathy, generosity and kindness so that they are always looking to 'pay it forward' rather than take for themselves; and also knowing when they need to ask for help rather than to struggle on their own
17266920- society supports and nurtures, not judges, and people feel hope, the ability to create
17366923- we taught our children to problem solve, to be resourcethat life is all about choices and choices have consequences.
17406926- our society were more equitable; mental health needs were met; and people had good options for supporting themelves and their families in lawful, productive ways.
17446929-everyone was given an opportunity to be a successful member of society; many are destined for a life of delinquency by circumstances, not choice.
17476932-people are given the proper education and are raised properly. Positive influence from leaders and mentors in society is and always will be the main reason for sustaining positive behavior
17516934families stayed together, quality education was available to all and kids choose different role models.
17586937-we collectively understood that its root cause is a polarity not a problem to solve. The central tension is between social support systems and personal responsibility, yet we splinter to either end of the continuum rather than navigate the whole.
17596938-we all grew up in supportive systems that told us we are loved and that our gain is not dependent upon someone else's loss.
17656942-we focus more on having the right laws and rules to stop the this, vs. creating or providing environment to give an opportunity to do crime and delinquency. If crime occurs, it is critical to educate, rehabilitate and provide environment which encourages not to commit crime and delinquency.
17676944… everyone would be less selfish and give more attention to his surroundings.
17786947- we break the cycle of disadvantaged youth - we need to focus their energy and creativity in positive ways from their earliest days - no one is born bad.
17806949-family values were emphasized more and people had higher moral character.
17876954- we had equal chances for social mobility by providing equal opportunities.
17886955-we could help more people experience a safe environment to learn, develop, and identify the positive part they can play in our world.
17986960- children would be educated about the true values, all of them will be given equal chances to a proper education, the society will promote the right role models
18086962people are continuously trained so they have marketable skills which are sought after and provide employment options.
18106964-raise our children different and create a more (not pure but more) matriach society
18186971-we can manage that everyone's upbringing is good. Research shows that many criminals have had a bad childhood.
18246974-we were better about investing in our youth's education and opportunities.
18856984- People were more willing to listen and show compassion and learn to let-go.
18966986- people were better educated and there was less poverty. There are some basic rights like education, healthcare, food and bed. As a society, we need to make those available to everyone. When those basic needs are met, human nature focuses on further improvements and stops worrying about where the next meal is going to come from. I am a believer in most people want to be good.
18996989- we develop more empathy among people. There are countries that have very low level of crime (Swiss, Japan etc.), and we can try to learn from their culture and search for the answer.
19006990-There were enough resources available to get all of peoples needs met in a sustainable way.
19217004we had better education and good job opportunities leading to better prosperity in society
19527014-the income gap was reduced and society was more generous.
19747017- if society was less inclined towards selfishness and greed
19837024-people were better educated; a good education should not be a privilege but a right.
19847025We had programs to work with people, understand the root of their actions and try to provide the education, training, opportunities to turn their lives around.
19867027-By increasing and varying education where needed (i.e. more focus on apprenticeships and vocational courses) and by reducing poverty.
20027029- education would be for free, wealth would be distributed more equally and access to weapons restricted more heavily (e.g., psychological tests for anyone who wants to carry a firearm).
20047030- we would concentrate on family relations, also by making our society more considering, healthier and wealthier for all.
20077033-Everybody's "minimum" rights and earnings are enough for them to live easily. If they path to reach dreams are clear and there would be a clear punishment for taking unethical and unlawful shortcuts.
20167039-we spent more time as a society on providing the resources to develop children into healthy adults and less time as a society punishing adults for behaviors that now occur because they weren't cared for well as children.
20187040-every person could find a purpose in life that would make them get up in the morning with excitement.
20197041- efforts to prevent the causes, particularly in deprived areas, were increased including a focus on creating opportunities for the people who live there.
20207042family stability and good parenting were seen as more important culturally and socially, and if people could see meaning to their work.
20227044-we took time to understanding the "why" or root cause and proactively managing the situation rather than being reactive to the symptoms.
20337048if we were all running the same race. Resources are sometimes a results of crime, or lack there of.
20357050- our societies were more inclusive, and individual more respectful to each other.
20377052-people would be more educated. -there would be a lower gap between the high and low (better distribution of wealth).
20397054more people in society were given a chance to participate in the workforce and make a decent living.
20427055resources were provided to impoverished areas to give those people the same opportunities wealthy people have.
20747069- the government spent more money on programs to help those less fortunate and support as they went through. I think that hard work and accountability can help someone learn respect and the importance of striving for more than a life of crime.
20857076- wealth difference would not be that great. Education and ethics are delivered through education system bring the sense of community to people as it exists in Japan where Crime and delinquency is one of the lightest in the world.
20877077-we invested more in education (including to adults), tried hard to give everyone a chance in life, while enforcing the rules of society with clarity and consistency at all times.
21017082-the society were more educated, more respectful, more inclusive and the standard of living of all the people of the country was high.
21147087-we look at it as a systemic issue, not an individual one and if we have a restorative approach rather than punitive.
21477096-citizens and police had better understanding, trust, and communication
21407100There would be more even distrubution of income in our society and support real for people in need
21567109-we took the time as a society to educate, train and support all so there is no need to resort to crime. There are far too many people that get forgotten as society rushes forward.
21657111- people knew each other better and communicated more in families, homes, neighborhoods and cities.
21737119- these children were loved, accepted and supported, if they had mindful adults around them who would pass on their values (humaneness, value of life, respect for others and their property, etc.).
21757121-we invested in support for the family unit
21817122-people shared the same values. I think crime and delinquency are relative and that people do not have the same values and understanding of right and wrong. Laws are needed to keep societal norms, but not everyone can agree on what those laws should be.
21907123there was better education and real opportunities for people born in difficult environments to choose wisely their destiny
22117129-those caught in this cycle could have their world view widened. Patterns are part of our brain and lives and one needs to see different possibilities in order to change those patterns. I also think that education can be liberating and that this is hard to achieve in an environment where it isn't valued.
22347134somehow education was prioritized in lower income neighborhoods. With education comes the ability to be a better problem solver without resorting to violence or other crime.
22717139people held each other accountable and did not ignore what was happening around them.
22827144- there was a stronger social and financial safety net for people that don't receive the opportunities or have the potential to become or maintain productive members of society.
22847147-we would invest more in education and facilitate entrepreneurship to create opportunities and jobs.
22867148- the educational and cultural level can be continuously improved, then everyone will treat others equally, and show more respect to others.
22927149-Crime and delinquency could be reduced if criminal justice reform efforts would ensure that sentences/punishments are suitable for the crime (a reasonable fit), and by allocating more funding toward workforce initiatives that can encourage offenders to feel empowered enough to enter the job market to make a new start.
23107153- we were more willing to listen and get to know people who are different from us, racially and socioeconomically. Also, we need more social infrastructure to support folks in need. And, fewer / no guns
23217157-people received the right breaks in life, received education and a loving, caring, nurturing environment both in childhood and life
23227159-there was more education and citizen awareness and we all cared more about the others.
23387164- we can manage to safeguard a good general education and foster integrity and common values
23417165- (1) communities were nurtured in emotional/relational skills and equipped in ways to nurture others in those skills, and (2) the strong protected the weak.
23487167persons knew or were redirected to what it meant to seek the kind of societal relationships which advance one in the nature of what is good and true.
24007175Had a stronger understanding of the importance of society/ communities and could more positively set them up by increasing education and welfare standards. We increased understanding and use of contraception Acted as a society to properly rehabilitate offenders
24177179valued -- via investment -- public sector & services more.
24237184Parents spent more time with their children teaching them how to be good human beings.
24357187- we worked on providing people with pathways and purpose that challenged, recognized and rewarded them.
24437188-we could address root causes like better access to education, basic needs (like health, safety, shelter), and inequities. I think most people are generally good and if they can do things that give them a sense of pride, purpose and contribution they would be less likely to turn to crime.
24447189- our society found a way for each child to grow in an environment of love and support and in which they had their basic needs met without fail. I also think we can reduce crime and delinquency if we learned how to better communicate with each other.
24497191- we stopped criminalising poverty and disadvantage, which is reflected in the number of women in prisons becuase they have defaulted on fine payments; or the many people at risk of or experiencing homelessness who are charged with public nuisance offences.
21257194- we supported each other more, afforded more people a second chance, didn't judge people's abilities by past performance or lack of experience, spent more time volunteering, paying it forward, doing more with less.
24717196-if more of us benefitted from loving families, quality education and careers in which we can experience the satisfaction of achievement.
24827198everyone owned the problem and sought to change in a more coordinated way.
24837199- there were programs of education that took the time to connect with people and help them find their passion
24917203- if we really understood the challenges that other people might be facing so we could find ways to help them before hopelessness sets in.
24967204our social framework was such that the gap between the 'haves' and 'have nots' was reduced.
24997205-we spent the time and effort in understanding the 'why' and then developed impactful, sustainable and culturally appropriate programs and initiatives to address the issues including housing, health care, education and inclusion.
25167210living conditions and work opportunities were improved and education was more holistic and less target driven and more appropriate for all and not just the academic
25427217-strong enforcement coupled with improved educational standards and outcomes, as well as early intervention with likely problem groups.
25137218- as a community we placed more importance on providing strong social and support structures for our most vulnerable children and youth.
26147234-We understood the real reasons for the crime etc. Politicians have a very short time perspective (and getting shorter all the time with social media) and what we need is a longer term perspective.
26157235access and quality of education would be higher. Know more about the past, about the world, about others, about yourself. And if money was not at the center of everything in life (well educated people are involved in crime and deliquence as well).
26377237That requires an answer longer than I have time for here. But for me the key headings and areas to target would be; - Identifying and resolving the root causes - providing the right level of funding to do the above - enabling the police to have the right resources - focusing on rehabilitation and incarceration
26397239-we were able to provide a more meaningful social safety net (including better health care and child care services) for poor families
26437242-children were taught to respect and treat others as they would like to be treated themselves, and given equal opportunities to learn and grow in a enjoyable and fun environment that encouraged them to achieve and succeed.
26497244there was a combination of more recognition of the rewards of work, more understanding of the causes of the situations in which people find themselves turning to crime coupled with tighter qualifying criteria for government-funded safety nets and stronger penalties for serious crime.
26537247-People had enough to eat, access to education and shelter, and available employment that paid a fair wage. If people felt they had a sense of power over their lives, self determination, self dignity. We treated everyone with dignity and respect and their were enough resources for everyone.
25557249society's value system was shifted to a sustaining model of nurturing and developing people rather than a system of ensuring increased profits.
26557250We work with our indiviual ad collectiv mindsets. A lot of the problems are rooted in a we and them. I we could activily raise the awaernes and self knowledge at a indiviutal basis we can creat a seed bed for a mor human society. Of cours that must be supported by legal and supporing structures. We need to address the issues from a mulipespective way.
26597251- we listened more to others and the challenges they encounter, to give them a voice to share and think through possibilities.
26647252-there was less poverty and more equal access to opportunities and development for all.
26607254- government fight against corruption, terrorism, civil wars, stop cold wars - spend more on education - help development countries - be better people, each of us
27047264- society focused more on kindness and generosity vs. personal gain.
27117265-if families were intact and healthy to serve as a foundational core to mitigate the scourge of drugs and promote education
27257269-we deeply cared for, valued and "see" every human being, and boldly faced and dismantled structural inequality in our all of our systems.
24877271- we improved our education system, really fought to address systemic (and unconscious) racial bias, and provided more consistent, better paying job training opportunities.
27427275- We spent more time talking to our neighbours, educating the broader community and society about what is right and wrong. Offering greater community support may also alleviate some of the tensions which culminate in these inappropriate behaviours. Sport could have an important role to play with people learning to play in teams or with other individuals. Simple values like, trust, respect and honesty would go a long way to a better society
27547278-people took responsibility for their actions and where educated to meet individuals where they are at and motivate their drivers.
27557279-made radical changes to a very large system: improving school quality, addressing the numerous things that keep people in poverty, revamped policing practices that move to reduce racial bias, a complete overhaul of our prison systems, the list goes on....
27697282we took the time to understand and invest in addressing the root causes in society
27757284- education was more equally and easily accessible
27787287we really understood the causes (and interdependencies) better and tackled those
27897289- people get a better education, a chance to get a good and satisfying job and a family that supports them in every phase of their life.
27907290- we created an approach that didn't let people fail, that was generous enough to help and support people and relied less on animal spirits or fear of failure to motivate.
27937291we actually let our boys express themselves and showed them affection as children. We are perpetuating a world of darkness and crime by emotionally starving and strangling our boys instead of showering them with the love, acceptance and affection all children deserve. I truly believe if we can emotionally heal boys and men, our world will be a much brighter, less violent place.
28287299- all children had equal opportunities for education and care from very early age.
28487307there were less broken homes with absentee father figures, fairer society with opportunity for all no matter who you are, no matter what colour and creed.
28597313- equal opportunities for education, health, and support were provided to people and the people took advantage of them.
29107328-We taught the world how to practice inner peace and the education system was more focused on EQ. Also if we ban guns and fixed the inequality issue we have in the world today.
29617333young people were considered to be assets in their communities rather than needing to be policed.
29677335-we would listen people more attentively and if we would give them attention and give them opportunities to learn and be proud of themselves
29777339politicians could work better together. They spend so much time infighting with bi-partisan debate, how do they have any time to solve the actual problem?
29857340we understood the motivations for such actions and took the necessary steps to resolve. I recognise that there will always be dishonest, corrupt and unethical behaviour which through education should reduce.
30037343we had more employment opportunities giving people the ability to work towards creating a better life for themselves
30147347everyone had love, food, shelter, and a sense of purpose for their lives.
30177349-there were more good paying jobs available to people with minimal education.
30277352- people were supported to find their purpose and value in life by creating safe environments.
30487357there was less disparity and more connectedness in the world.
30757362-everyone had better access to an education as it helps individuals achieve and hopefully avoid crime or simply informs them of the downsides to crime.
30827363we recast the purpose, meaning, and practice of marriage.
30887364- we reduced inequality in society and made sure more people felt as if they had a proper stake in it
31207372parents were held more accountable for the actions of their children. We also need to address poverty and education in areas that historically have a lower socioeconomic standing.
31217373-If choose to take a different route as opposed to claiming society failed them.
31337377family lives were more stable
31567382there was more tolerance and understanding in the world and that being human is very different to being a human being
31627383- as a starting point, children were brought up in a safe and loving household, provided with a strong moral compass and understood consequences from the day they were born.
31727384-more people were ruled by love and not by fear. If more people had a safe and happy childhood with good values. If more people were educated. If more people got to feel fellowship with other people. If more people felt needed.
31847390if we understood the route of the problem and applied equitable solutions through collaboration.
31877393family networks were stronger.
31887394if we spent more quality time with our children and gave back to our communities, including providing better resources to teachers.
31897395Greater support systems and deconstructing institutionalized privilege.
31707397- societal inequality (poverty, discrimination, unequal access to opportunities) was addressed.
32027398- all citizens receive good education, social support system is well developed, and punishment is severe.
32207401-there weren't so many people in the world, if everyone had a safe place to sleep, and our schools were stronger.
32227402if everyone understood the importance and value of education along with the impact a parent has on a child which projects their future. They need strong role models.
32247404there were clear paths to gainful employment and advancement via legal means
32257405emotions were understood, empathy was felt, and consequences were enforced.
32487410-everyone shared the rules – could influence their elaboration and amendment – and would find space for self-realization and happiness within these rules.
32527414-we knew the exhaustive list of reasons that trigger delinquent behavior and all these reasons could be influenced.
32537415-upbringing and education were like in Finnish schools, without aggression and violence (incl. psychological), if healthy values were conveyed at all levels of communication, if everyone’s wealth met the basic needs (accommodation, food, daily necessities and rights). 
32567418-everyone maintained a high level of vibration, but that triggers the question if everyone needs to have only rosy experience; some souls need to  collect low activity fields (destructive events/emotions, in order to have the following spectrum and later apply it in world-building) 
33067433-our education systems really inspired and equipped everybody to care for others and understand the impact of their own actions on others.
33117436-the world is more inclusive of people from underprivileged backgrounds
33167437opportunities for employment and gainful income, not welfare, were made more readily available. Giving people a purpose and opportunity to contribute to society is fundamentally what I believe most people want.
33347441- all crime and delinquency was taken seriously and followed up, if someone believes their behaviour is acceptable because it is not punished then they will not change and gradually get worse under the belief that it doesn't matter.
33357442- we develop the right behaviors as young children and stop cutting sport and extra curricular activities from schools. Kids being involved in clubs, sports, camps, etc.. will promote good healthy lifestyle development. It will teach inclusiveness and that will stop a lot of divide we see in society today.
33487444we had a more equal allocation of wealth in our society.
33537446- there was more equality and fairness in society and also a more empathetic approach to human issues.
33507456-we ensured that there were less visible socio-economic divides between groups in society, and had more concerted efforts to create great education and labor opportunities for all. Having officials in local, state, and national government that could focus on their jobs rather than re-election processes would be a huge help to start!
33807459-the social factors around poverty were better addressed, to give people more agency in their lives
33817460-we viewed crime and delinquency as a symptom of deeper issues. By providing educational and economic opportunities, increasing community supports and providing robust welfare options the rates of offence could be lowered.
33887462- it were possible to find meaningful employment opportunities or stimulating activities for free time for all who are at risk of behaving in this manner.
