I think overall the major trends of the 2010's is going green. In the U.S., high speed rail will become the way to travel within the regions. There will also be many new skyscrapers built in the cities, and there will be a revived interest in space travel not seen since the 1960's.

I hope the whole Britney, Paris, Lindsay Lohan, and Nicole Richie tabloid thing will die out completely!

It already has died out, but I hope it stays that way!

Paris isn't as popular anymore. Britney is somewhat stable. No one cares about Nicole Richie anymore (no offense to her), and people are sick of Lindsay Lohan.

I feel that Reality Shows will be dead.

D-E-A-D, dead. And nostalgia from the 90's will be popular, the best decade that I've ever experienced!

I can see this liberal type junk will die out and we are going to become more conservative.  The 2000s wasn't really that conservative socially and I can see a comeback in social conservatism in the 2010s.  We just had GWB as president, but pretty much throughout the late 2000s and most of the 2000s, there is a lot of stuff about gay acceptance, indie music, the media starting to get looser and looser, alternative energy.  A lot of this conservative junk will come back in the 2010s, but it is not going to be this blow em up conservative wannabe Reagon junk in the 2000s.  We might see more of an Eisenhower conservative.

A pope will be dead and we will have to go through the motions of a newer pope coming in.  This one will be younger and more hip and progressive like john paul II The Cathloic church will eventually become a one world church in the 21st century, starting with a major unity and signalarity thing, and a spiritual awakening past 2011 or 2012.  Even in 2010.


We will be going into a conservative movement.  Obama will lose power since Congress will be based on Republicans and that will block things off big time.

John Paul the 2nd was not progressive, not by any wild stretch of the imagination.  The Catholic will never hold rank like it used to except for in African countries.

How in the world do you see that happening, bearing in mind that the number of conservative archbishops has risen considerably under the last two Popes?

I agree. But maybe he was thinking of John Paul I. :-\\

I think 3DTV will take off and will be to the 2010s to what HDTV was to the 2000s; it will probably happen first in cinema (with Avatar perhaps starting the trend). Also, the blog will increase it's importance in jornalistic quality from mostly just sharing from a mainstream source to real-time reporting. The print book will decline much like the CD did in the 2000s; they'll still be around in 2020, but with less importance in lieu of e-readers. Unfortunately, I don't think there is much hope in the music industry; most people just love their classics and the new artists don't hold a candle to the classics; the CD will probably die around mid-decade, vinyl will make a comeback, and due to a fragmented MTV/radio viewership, mainstream will continue to be lackluster in quality, with the good stuff remaining underground like it did during the 2000s. Is it me or is the late '90s/early 2000s suddenly feeling very dated? Pre-social media, big cars/engines, pre-Autotune, CDs still king, regular DVDs king, mostly non HDTV, cheesy AI/ early 3D video game graphics, teen pop that feels so cheesy today!
