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

Jesus christ what's the next list gonna be? Reasons why Yesterday was better than tomorrow? - Pato_cargo

This isn't a valid reason - darthvadern

And? Obama was and he was worse. - B1ueNew

Better than NObama.
*Isis nearly completely defeated
* Improved relationships with North Korea
* Increase in jobs
* Trying to protect us from criminals who illegally immigrate here. - Randomator

Exactly, Trump has mostly done more things in his first 2 years in office then Obama did in his first few years, Obama did some good too but not that much and did a lot of bad. Trump is better right now but I don't really support him that much. He's mediocre to me. Obama was bad but could of been worse. - B1ueNew

2 Less Phone Addiction

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

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 - germshep24

There is a addiction to everything not just phones - ElSherlock

Whoever added this can go back to 1819

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. - JoeBoi

Shootings and violence has always been a problem. Stop acting like it's just now all of a sudden happening in America. - B1ueNew

That was just in the west - darthvadern

Only really bad one I can think of is Sandy Hook, now shootings happen every few months - Aha223

4 No Mumble Rappers

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

There were still crappy rappers like Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne so no. - B1ueNew

Good point, but the early 2010s still had pieces of crap like LMFAO, Katy Perry and of course, Justin Bieber. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

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...

5 YouTube Was Done for Fun and Not for Money

It has always been done for money. - B1ueNew

At least Geography Now exists - darthvadern

Basically an extension of 2000s youtube, no clickbait or any of that stuff - Aha223

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

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. - Aha223

No. Video game music has always been good - darthvadern

That's subjective. And the Music wasn't even that good. - B1ueNew

That's opinionated

7 No TikTok,, or Vine

There were still bad trends. - B1ueNew

Yeah, this is pretty obvious - Aha223

Smartphones weren't as advanced back then - darthvadern

And furries ran rampant on the internet. Sure, Vine and were crap, but TikTok is amazing. - 404_name_missing

8 Better Cartoons

Bad cartoons also existed - ElSherlock

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

Although Nickeledeon went downhill, Cartoon Network has some amazing shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Gumball. And then Cartoon Network went downhill after Teen Titans Go, but their improving. - RadioHead03

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

9 No Stupid Internet Challenges

Yes there were. - B1ueNew

Internet challenges always exist - ElSherlock

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

When will these things just stop happening? And why do people think they are good ideas? - Aha223

10 People Were Funnier

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

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.

14 Better Movies

Early 2000s had some legendary Pixar movies - Randomator

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 - robertoiglesias271

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

15 No Cardi B

But there was Nicki Minaj. - B1ueNew

She would've turned 18 around this time, though. - POWERStarz2004

Fidget spinners are dead anyways. - Userguy44

20 Memes Were Less Mainstream
21 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. - 404_name_missing

Stop overreacting about Fortnite. - Userguy44
