Top Ten Reasons Why the Early 2010s Were Better Than the Late 2010s

The 2010s are almost over, and I know how much everyone hates this decade. But I feel like 2010-2012 was a simpler time that most people forget about. However, 2016-2019 has been really bad and doesn’t deserve to be remembered. Here’s reasons to why the early part of this decade is much much better than the late part, and I think most of us can agree on this.
The Top Ten
1 Trump Wasn’t President

I never had to worry about anything with Obama as president

This is subjective but need I see more

2 Less Phone Addiction

I agree with this but this isn't that strong of a reason

There is a addiction to everything not just phones

Remember when kids played outside and parents had to force them to come inside? Now it’s the opposite

The first three are actual points the other are thinks that people either like, hate, or don't care either way, so they could easily be reasons that people before now to then

3 Fewer Shootings

Shootings in 2011-2015: Aurora, Sandy Hook
Shootings in 2016-2019: Orlando, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Parkland, Santa Fa, Pittsburgh, Thousand Oaks
This literally explains why America has a serious gun problem.

Only really bad one I can think of is Sandy Hook, now shootings happen every few months

This makes responsible gun owners everywhere sick. Trust me.

That was just in the west

4 No Mumble Rappers

It's not just mumble rap that made the late 2010s a terrible time to be a popular music fan. A lot of pop singers tried to make their songs have trap elements and they come out as either boring or flat out terrible. Not to mention that a lot of songs at that time were just depressing and very monotone. But at least it wasn't the worst music era ever.

Change the title to few mumble rappers, because Future and Lil Wayne were both mumbling in the early 2010s
And why are dumbasses saying 6ix9ine is a mumble rapper. He's trash but you can clearing here what he's saying. Trash doesn't equal Mumble...

Listening to annoying pop songs that were about partying is probably better than listening to mumble rap.

Good point, but the early 2010s still had pieces of crap like LMFAO, Katy Perry and of course, Justin Bieber.

5 YouTube Was Done for Fun and Not for Money

Basically an extension of 2000s youtube, no clickbait or any of that stuff

I blame things like Patreon and Youtube's recommended system.

At least Geography Now exists

Rip the 2007-2013 era.

6 Better Music

Even though there were still many bad songs back then, at least they were fun stupid songs. Most songs today have very little effort (if any) put into them.

The music in 2020 is better than 2019, but we're talking about the late 2010s anyway so, yeah the music was worse and early 2010s music was better.

This is 100% true, even though all hit songs from the early 2010s sucked, and music just keeps getting worse all the time.

This is entirely true. I think that some people are brainwashed to modern music.

7 No TikTok, Musical.ly, or Vine

Smartphones weren't as advanced back then

Yes I agree only msn and bbm and skype and xbox live and... on and on

Tbh TikTok's fine. (The other two I'm glad they're gone though)

Yeah, this is pretty obvious

8 Better Cartoons

2010 is when I think Western animation started to go downhill.

While I think cartoons from the 2000s were better, I do agree.

Early 2000s had pretty much the same cartoons as the 90s

a lot of cartoons are pretty bad now and AGAIN, I hope it gets better.

9 No Stupid Internet Challenges

When will these things just stop happening? And why do people think they are good ideas?

Of course nobody even dared to eat tide pods back in the early 2010d.

Proof that humanity has gone downhill

One word, tidpods.

10 People Were Funnier

Nowadays, people are making jokes about Ebola, Cancer, 9/11, School Shootings and other serious topics.

Title says it all

The Contenders
11 Rappers Weren’t Taking Over

They were sort of, but good rappers. I'm just sick of everyone from drake to taylor swift trying to be rappers, and don't get me started with the Lil's.

YES! Exactly! Finally someone agrees with me! Since a while ago rappers are everywhere. It's pretty much mainstream.

I made that second comment.

12 No Lil Meerkat
13 No Fortnite

I would try to disprove the common misconceptions associated with Fortnite, but a lot of times, the people who hate Fortnite will not listen to reason and will continue being snotty "I only play smart games like Undertale" elitists.

That is true.

Fortnite is trash game only little kids and pedos play it if u liek dis game then your gay lmaod skndsknsl

14 No Cardi B

She would've turned 18 around this time, though.

15 You Wouldn’t See Anyone with a Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are dead anyways.

16 No Submarine Man
17 Better Trends

I made this too, again meaning, no fornite, tiktok, dabbing, flossing, etc. I also liked the pop culture better.

18 Memes Were Less Mainstream

I, again made this I don't know why?

20 Better Movies

The first "Wreck-It Ralph", an awesome movie with fun characters, came out in 2012. "Ralph Breaks the Internet", its "sequel" with bad characterization of both WIR's characters and the Disney Princesses, new characters that were bland if not annoying, and driven by a blatant feminist agenda, came out in 2018.

YES! The early 2010’s had fun movies. If they were cliched they would work around them and would be unique and ENTERTAINING! The late 2010’s have boring cash grabs that are crappy and boring

There were less superhero movies and more movies that were original so yeah. I agree. - B1ueNew

Early 2000s had some legendary Pixar movies

21 Better Games
22 People Joked About Diseases and Mental Disorders Less

Yes, and it's not something to be joked about, I hope people stop.

23 David Bowie Was Still Alive
24 Patreon Wasn't a Thing

The Internet was a better place before patreon.

25 No Lego Movies

The Lego Movie 2 was a dumpster fire and it made me want to stop the movie multiple times.

No.
1. The Lego Movie came out in 2014.
2. It was amazing
