Would the world be a better place if DIY was banned?

Just the opposite. The world would be a better place if everyone had to do things themselves.

Yes it would for sure

I really don't think so, but if DYI was banned, it may save some marriages. LOL

Nope. A planet full of helpless dimwits would pretty much suck. Of course there are some who shouldn't mess around with things too much but it's good that they try.

Prolly not! I know I would get entirely bored if I couldn't do my own work around the house! Just think of all of the extra money one would have to spend if they couldn't do their own repairs and build projects! A lot of those projects would never get done too since some could not afford them if they couldn't do it themselves!

It is hard to get a decent and honest mechanic, plumber, contractor, electrician or a heating technician now. Just imagine if nobody is allowed to replace their own faucet. paint their own fence or replace the battery in their car. There will be a lot more shooting rampage. And you could be one of the victims.
As they say often, "Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it".

This goes against the principle of "right to repair" and it will never come to be.

No, but I am sure contractors would be pleased. Seriously, most "fixes" are very easy, but I would have someone in to add an electrical outlet or re-plumb the house.

It might be a bit quieter. The diy industry is globally worth $600 billion so it would also be a bit poorer. I suspect a lot of jobs/improvements wouldn't get done if people had to rely on the professionals to do them, which may or may not be a good thing. I prefer to do my own work as most builders are unskilled: barely capable of understanding rules and regulations, let alone following manufacturer's instructions.
