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
2 Less Phone Addiction

It's bull that everyone has to be addicted to their phones. It's affecting their daily health so much.

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

While they still existed, they didn't interfere with everyday things nearly as much as they do these days

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.

This makes responsible gun owners everywhere sick. Trust me.

Need I say more

I miss the days

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...

Why does everyone have to listen to untalented rappers who use excessive autotune. God, I can't believe rock music declined in popularity thanks to them.

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

5 Better Music

Oh my gosh, I remember being in high school and jamming to One Direction and 5sos. Amnesia was (and still is) my favorite song of all time.

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.

Pop music back then was actually better than pop music now, well, except for that untalented Justin Bieber if you know what I'm talking about.

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.

6 YouTube Was Done for Fun and Not for Money

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

7 No TikTok, Musical.ly, or Vine

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

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.

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.

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 Better Trends

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

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.

14 You Wouldn’t See Anyone with a Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are dead anyways.

15 Memes Were Less Mainstream

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

16 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

I notice that TV in general is worse, and again, hope it gets bettter.

17 No Cardi B

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

18 Better Games
19 More Good News
20 People Joked About Diseases and Mental Disorders Less

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

21 David Bowie Was Still Alive
22 No Lil Meerkat
23 Patreon Wasn't a Thing

The Internet was a better place before patreon.

24 No Lego Movies

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