Subject: Does anyone else have a feeling the 2020s will suck?

Written By: nintieskid999 on 09/13/17 at 8:56 am

I think it will be a decade of war. The 2030s will be a decade of mass conformity.

Yeah. The world is generally worsening every year to me. I can't really see how people are excited besides from how 2020 sound. All I see is more consuming technology.

"Suck" is a subjective term.

The 2020s will be the decade before the 2030s and after the 2010s.

If we all survive, that is the only guaranteed that will happened.

What's up with the "Past is golden, modern sucks, future will be  dystopian" mentality that I keep seeing?  I'm not saying the '20s will be awesome, but just saying that you "feel" it'll "suck" is ridiculous.  ::)

The early 2020s might suck since all the boring 2010s stuff will carry over to them,but by 2023 or 2024 is when 10s will be definentley no more and I bet that's when the fun,big change,and separation from the 10s will happen I mean I hope by at least 2021 its way bigger better and different.

Oh man. I hope not! Most of this era has already turned out that way, so I really hope the next decade is much better.

I'm convinced that most of the people on this board just can't accept the fact that this is more or less the truth. I would switch utopian for dystopian tho. Almost everyone on this board seems to be in love with the decade of their childhood and hate everything next decade after until 5 or so years into the next decade where they then look at the decade they hated a bit more fondly. It's so typical. Nostalgia is one thing...living day to day is another.

No. I don't expect to be understood as much as I was. Decade doubt has always been a thing. If not, in the minority. If your going to be great, prove me wrong.

Its difficult to see life as you once did when your fully aware of constant world negatives around you, you could end up in any day. My personal life is ok but as far as the general, I'm losing hope.

We don't even know if the late 2010's are going to suck. But from what I can see so far, 2017 has been one of the best years for music in this decade IMO. I have a feeling the 2020's will be awesome.

Even in the late 90s I didn't look forward to the new Millennium. Somehow I knew it would turn out to suck.

Although I don't like telling people how to feel, I get what you mean.

The 2010's isn't that bad. I like a lot of shows and movies are still good to me.
I'm sure there were lots of people in the 1980's that hated that decade. Or at least didn't care for it.

Yeah, exactly. I'm not saying that you can't reminisce about your childhood or a previous decade which everyone does occasionally but the present isn't that bad. This isn't the 1930s where most Americans were BARELY surviving and had nothing much to hold on to.

I'm totally fine with 2010s shows. I can watch my favorite 90s show for nostalgic reasons but...I'm older now and I like more complicated and risky story-telling. I also like fast, non-sequitor, cerebral humor. Hence why I love Rick and Morty.

On the music side, 2010s has been mostly disappointing. I started out very well and I'm not really referring to the mainstream. The indie was really vibrant during the 2008-2012 period and I think some of that indieness rubbed onto the mainstream and the mainstream just took the shallower aspects of the indie scene.

The 2010s is a great decade only if you take out the early 2010s. The early 2010s was like the era from hell and unfortunately it leaves a bad stain on the decade itself. The mid 2010s were pretty awesome though.

Come on dude, it's bad enough that almost EVERYBODY on this forum has to complain about how much they hate the current decade were living in, it doesn't help to create a thread already bashing a decade that we haven't even reached yet! :-X

Well, OP was talking about war and mass conformity (totalitarian state?) and stuff. I mean, there's a remote possibility that can happen, but there's a much higher chance we find the cure for cancer or something good, so let's keep things in perspective. ;D

Pretty sure the early 2010s is the fuel behind why some like the 2010s. Remember, 2016 is widely considered the worst year for popculture in recent memory.

I'm definitely going to be nostalgic for this decade. I spent half my childhood and the majority of my teen years in this decade. I'm definitely going to miss the pop culture and the memories. Although I think this decade has good pop culture, I do agree that 2014 was the worst year for music.
