From 10 things I’d ban from the modern world, I’d vote for the following:
4. High volume on in-car sound systems. No one should be allowed to drive around with sound blaring through open windows so you can hear it half a mile off. It’s an aural assault to everyone else. It is also very distracting for the driver who can’t possibly hear, for example, an emergency vehicle approaching, or be able to concentrate on driving safely. I’d have a legal limit on the upper volume control – and it wouldn’t be a very high one.
7. Music in shops and restaurants. It is often assaultingly loud and is designed to muddy your brain into buying or ordering stuff you neither want nor need. Ban it.
10. Modified exhausts. I’d ban their manufacture, sale and use. I’m dead against anything which simply makes cars and motorcycles noisier because silly owners get their exhibitionist kicks out of deafening everyone they pass.
But I’d also agree with this more ambitious list from a comment:
1) War; 2) Religion; 3) Financial capitalism; 4) Race; 5) Monopolies; 6) Political parties; 7) Marriage; 8) Celebrities; 9) Tabloid journalism; 10) Junk food. And that’s just for starters.
