Subject: do you think the 2010s will be a split decade??

Written By: sonic2005 on 08/04/16 at 5:37 pm

there's already been a shift in tone since late 2014( beginning with the events of ferguson) but with the upcoming election regardless if trump or Hilary wins theres gonna be some HUGE changes these next few years do you think the changes will be so drastic that the late 10s will seem like a completely different decade kinda like the 60s, the 90s,(and to a lesser extent the 2000s)?

I strongly doubt it. 2015 and even 2016 are really not fundamentally very different from 2010, they're just a mostly negative progression of foundations already laid down there.

It is possible for the late 2010s to be significantly different from the first several years of the decade, a lot like the late 90s, but even that is still rather up in the air.

The only truly split decades in the past century, in my opinion, are the 1940s and the 1950s. The 40s are obvious because they're divided between World War II and the Cold War, while the 50s are split between the general continuation of the late 40s and then the beatnik/Elvis/Marilyn Monroe/greaser/rock & roll 50s.

No. Just no.

It could happen, it could not. No way of predicting the future.

If Trump wins, then it would definitely be a split decade, but that's not looking very likely.

It's possible but I don't think so. I think the changes will be gradual like they were from the beginning of the decade. But nobody knows for sure.

No. I don't think so. The current atmosphere right now began way back in 2011 and it's not that different from today. However, it could happen since this election is huge.

The 2010s has been pretty consistent so far. Sure there were a few  changes (obvious being how the early 2010s was more upbeat and colorful while the mid 2010s is more depressing and nerve racking), but besides those changes it's been pretty consistent.

The last consistent decade was the 1980s. 1990s/2000s had some rapid changes (late 1990s and 2000s can't be compared to the early 1990s and early 2000s for example), but the 2010s may end up being another consistent decade.

Yeah I think the 2010s will be like the 1980s and be a relatively consistent decade.
