should we really just leave the space junk where it is OR shall we actually take action for our mess and then recycle the space junk?

That's very idealistic of you. This is like saying, "Are we gonna leave starving kids in Africa or are we gonna step up! ? " Sure, Yea yea. Step up and do what? Ruin your economy? By the time we even started to clean up the mess up there any country trying to do so would immediately go bankrupt and crumble.

So sure, It sounds noble, But it means nothing. What's the point of idealism if you can't act on it? In the end, You can say whatever you want to, You can get everyone to agree it's the right thing to do, But no one will do it. It's not possible at the moment. The technology is too expensive and untested. Getting to that orbit alone would cost a fortune. Building the equipment to clean up would cost more than running the country. Recycling all that junk? Sure, Get all the money on the planet and get working on it.

You have to prioritize. You can't say that it's something we should do so let's do it. It has to be plausible, Reasonable.

"Kurzegagt released a video which talks about how space junk will eventually form an impenetrable space barrier which will destroy all of our satellites"

And eventually the sun will implode and take out the entire solar system.

By the time things like what you describe will actually happen, A long time will have passed and we'll have ways of dealing with it.

Kurzegagt released a video which talks about how space junk will eventually form an impenetrable space barrier which will destroy all of our satellites, Maybe block out the sun, Crash into the earth at random occasions but most importantly make space travel completely impossible.
