Top 10 Things We Can Hope for in the 2020sNext year will be 2019 which will be the final year of the 2010s, and I honestly gotta say the 2010s have been an absolute disaster in my personal opinion. Everything from politics, society, entertainment, etc. has gone downhill fast. And I don't really know what the world's gonna be like once we hit the 2020s, but hopefully it's way better than it is now. We all just have to be positive and hope for the best.
Now hear me out, I'm already aware of the fact that no decade is perfect and that a decade has no supernatural powers to make everything better. I'm just saying that we should all stay positive and hope for the best in the 2020s. But keep in mind that if you want the world to get better then you're gonna have to get up off your tail and make it better. Hard work is very important and if you want things done right you're gonna have to do them yourself.
The Top Ten
I wish people would stop hating on present-day and the future years, If you can't stop living in the past then find some things about this year that you love, look for music that was released this year that you will like, try listening to music that was released by small artists this year. As of for games, try to find an awesome game that you love to play and if you miss the good old days of that game then invite your friends to play that game with you if you can still play and if the game is closed then try to find a similar game to enjoy and then play it. Also, try finding new generation games to enjoy and play them, Try to do these along with everything you love to do and then it will be a lot easier to move on and you won't be like "man I miss the good old days" or "those were the days, the days we will never get back". If you love the music that was released back in the "good old days" then continue to listen to that music today and if people judge you then just ignore them, If ...more - EpicTime9012
In my huge comment, I said 2016 and beyond because that's when I started to see people complaining about the present-day. Ever since 2016, I've seen people complain about how things are going downhill. - EpicTime9012
It looks like the Sustainable Development Goals administered by the UN will not work. Peace cannot last on a divided government system built upon ideology.
World Peace would be awesome - EpicTime901242 Comments
Unfortunately, those school shootings will not stop. I don't want to give out the statistics about what happened before the Stoneman Douglas shooting at Florida in 2018. Besides, it will haunt those families and friends of loved ones murdered by those gunners with the fingers pulling the trigger of an AR-15 rifle.
And besides, we hope that none of the shootings will ever happen again. Will we look forward to beating swords into plowshares? How long will it be until it's time to put aside our differences and get to become friends? Maybe sometime later, extend the olive branch.
Yes school shootings are bad so that's why we have to ban them permanently! - andrewteel
Am sick and tired of schools shootings, I could sticking scream. - CatLeena14

I'd love one where they don't have unhealthy standards like "real men don't cry", "women have to look like photoshopped models in order to be pretty", "everyone must be an extrovert" and doesn't rely on outdated/stupid stereotypes to define certain types of people. I unfortunately feel like that day will never come as long as I live, but I hope it will come one day, even if it comes long after the end of my lifetime. - Hanjax70

Can we please stop saying that all modern music is bad? I believe there has always been just as much good and bad music. If you can't find a song released in the last year that you like, you aren't looking hard enough. Thanks to the internet, you can listen to a virtually limitless selection of music, weather that's Ariana Grande or some small indie band with 150 followers on Soundcloud. If you don't like what's popular, then just support one of the thousands of smaller artists that exist! - Atham
I want real music that actually has song structure and some melody - the last time you heard mainstream music that has a traditional song structure was around the year 2000. After this, mainstream music has turned into this boring, repetitive beat while someone sings or raps over it. It got worse with the autotune and the mumble rap. Around 2000, autotune was actually used the right way and it sounded pretty cool - now it sounds annoying.
Here is an example with Britney Spears. When she first came out about 1999-2000, her songs did have a catchy tune and a structured verse chorus verse bridge that we all loved and what made music very listenable. Later on, her music has become very bland, slapped together like every other song on the radio. It sounds more like someone pushing a button, making a loop, and singing over it, making it some boring drone. I think I can blame hip-hop and maybe EDM, DJs for starting it - possibly house music.
I hope real music with some ...more
Get past mainstream music and you'll realize that almost every music genre has been experimented on and popularized in some way, paving out some really impressive music artists. Folk, Indie and Electronic have some really good artists beyond just what's given in the charts, Underground Rap is becoming more prevalent and praised, and Metal has become way more popular than it was during the nineties and two-thousands. - CrimsonShark
I agree about metal (not much familiar with the details in Folk, Indie and Electronic music developments, so I can't say but you might be right about them, too) - Metal_Treasure
I'm a 2007 kid so I can't remember the music from then. I despise pop music so I am hoping for an improvement. Since 2010 music, especially pop, has plummeted down so I hope it's raised up again - JoPro46 Comments
Oh my God, PLEASE make this happen! Too many parents nowadays are making their kids absolute softies! Being an overprotective parent does more harm than good. Stop having the "everyone gets a participation trophy" attitude because the real world does not function like that at all! I get it, you want your kids to be your friends, but telling them no sometimes is a great thing. Maybe you have to lecture too, and that's good too (although if you're going to beat your kid, you are going a bit too far).
This is probably due to faulty research on my end, and if anything is wrong, I apologize, but how come with any other generation, kids could go outside for hours and do whatever, despite having a higher crime rate and all that? Crime is very low now and yet you the most you'll let your kid outside is for the patio steps?
I swear, maybe things like this is why everyone is offended over the smallest thing (or maybe not. Am I completely in the wrong here? Is it the internet that's doing ...more - wrests
If you ask me, the internet is to blame. People get addicted to that thing and can't seem to stop using it. The worst thing is, anyone and everyone can say their opinions on there and influence the more naive citizens. And not just the internet but technology as a whole is bad. Take television or social media. Those things are being used by people who have more power and money to sell stuff to people (and most of the time "sell" ideas to them). - RogerMcBaloney

Yes, please! If you ever plan to be a parent, don't be a soccer mom, don't join One Million Moms/Dads, etc. - Hanjax70
Please make this happen! Because of you raise your children right they'll make good decisions that means better presidents, better songs, less shootings, no more world hunger, world peace, less people will commit suicide. Please parents, TEACH YOUR CHILDREN HOW TO BEHAVE!

Trump wont be president in the 2020s - JoPro
Remove Trump from office, abolish political parties, raise the voting age back to 21 (keep at 18 for those serving in the military) and make it a law that the mentally disabled or those with no political or military experience can't run for president. - shadomatrix
Why not military experience? And at 18 you're allowed to join the military, get a job, and become a functioning member of this society. So why can't they help set up this society that they're in? - SirSheep
American Politics overall need to undergo a massive revamp if the US really wants to prosper. Politicians also need to be more experienced, understanding, connect with their audience and see what their country needs most. That, and the Left and Right Winged parties need to improve themselves by a large margin, lest the country really wants to remain divided.
Politics in developing countries aren't too bright either, but there are people who are determined to get the best person possible to lead them. - CrimsonShark
Political parties should be abolished - Kuro13 Comments
This will obviously happen, I even predicted it and when all pollution in the world will be gone in my list of best years in the future. - EpicTime9012
Pollution causes global warming. - Userguy44
I would love to see less pollution, more renewable energy, less fossil fuel use, better environmental policies, better energy efficiency programs. I am also willing to be part of the solution, as I am in college to be an environmental engineer.
Hopefully. Otherwise we're all screwed - SirSheep20 Comments
Didn't it end in 2013?
Are you sure you phrased this correctly? Did you mean terror[ism] finally ends? Because if this is correctly read, unless the implication is that the war against terror is ultimately won once and for all and terrorism is permanently vanquished, ending any attempts to defeat terrorism would result in terrorists plying their evil unchecked at will.
R34 artists aren't my cup of tea either, but it's best to ignore them than to give them negative attention.

Slaughterhouses should be shut down. Animals are raised there just so that they can die and are abused everyday. I once watched a documentary on it and it was awful how those animals were treated there. - DarkBoi-X
Proud vegan right here.
Animals have feelings, and they (depending on the animal) just want to be loved and appreciated. Or, if it's a wild animal, to be set free to live life with their own kind. Animal abuse is even worse than human abuse because I can GUARANTEE you that the animal didn't do anything wrong and if it did, out of protection. - Swiftdawn
Hey visiter. How is human abuse less serious than animal abuse, humans are ones advancing our life. - Manowar9
Bestiality is wrong for both people AND animals. They may not be able to talk, but they have feelings too. - Synchronocity12 Comments
Yes. This has to happen. - DarkBoi-X

"Third-World" seems to be an outdated term if you ask me. It's better to state "Developing Countries" instead as it describes a country as being willing to improve and better itself, despite hardship, problems and struggles. - CrimsonShark
"Third World" is a term that goes back to the Cold War. These were the countries that, if a war broke out, would remain neutral. Generally, these were poor countries, hence our current usage of the term. - Cyri

Even if Trump does lose, is there any viable presidential representation for either Democrats, Republicans and/or third-parties that you can choose from? This statement isn't valid if you don't have an idea who to envision for the next US president.
Also, I think people focus more on hating the current president than thinking who should be the next, to the point where it kind of becomes an afterthought. - CrimsonShark

Raping children deserves death penalty. Not a kid and an adult in a relationship.
It does because years in jail doesn't keep them from doing it again. That goes with every crime though - TheAwesomeDude54
Right, because pedophiles should not be forgiven for what they’ve done! - JoeBoi
This is unjust punishment, - namesnipe
Those who rape kids should be used as target practice - DarkBoi-X
Certainly. Many people are dying simply because they can't afford healthcare. - DarkBoi-X
The United States is the only highly developed country not to have universal healthcare, and it's very easy to fix. All we have to do is remove Trump from office, and increase taxes on the rich so they can pay for it. - shadomatrix
*cough* U.S. *cough* - Cyri
Free Healthcare is anything but a good idea. If doctors can't get paid, they would quit their job and very few people would actually want to work as a doctor because they don't get paid - 445956
Free Healthcare is a good idea because if healthcare is not free then some people could die because they can't afford healthcare, would you rather find out about people dying because they could not afford healthcare or find out about healthcare becoming free? - EpicTime90128 Comments

Abusing is about as bad as murdering somebody.
Execution is an injustice thing (if these people aren't killers and did they not killed anyone/anything). So this could be invalid and bad. - DinoLover4242

Animal abusers disguises as animal rights activists. Evil. - Cyri
Yes since they're evil and killed pets for no reason despite claiming that they don't want animal abuse, so they're hypocrites. The Animal Humane Society should dominate and PETA should permanently close, for the better. - DinoLover4242
Even they made satirical browser games as well.
If it does,I hope all the people who ran it or join it go to jail for animal abuse,Plus making horrible lies about protecting them when they are killing them.

Seriously? Vampires? Vampires do NOT exist and never will. Also, if vampires became real, they would have ended humanity by now (if they aren't effected by religious artifacts, etc since they would NOT be supernatural) by turning them into immortal (if vampires developed immortality) blood-sucking vampires.

YES! THANK YOU! Alcohol & Drugs as well as smoking are all very bad for your health. Especially for alcoholics, drug addicts & smokers who don't care about their own health at all & they die from these things, which is obviously their own fault. By the way, drug addicts: doing crack? More like doing crap!
I hope this happens because you don't need alcohol and illegal drugs. By illegal drugs, I mean the kind of drugs that won't help your body in any way, shape or form. I hope alcoholic drinks get banned someday. - EpicTime9012
Prohibition will repeal if this happens because a lot of people are still going to illegally drink and buy alcohol. I would say that this is a terrible idea. - BurnAux
We banned alcohol once and that led to the highest crime rate (along with the 70's and 80's when cocaine was the drug). - aj20056 Comments

Please don't judge others by their grammar. We don't need to judge people by their grammar, just leave that only in school and also leave that to the reading teachers & professors, please. I hate it when people judge others by their grammar in the comments because it's so rude and unnecessary. - EpicTime9012
Please don't be so judgemental by other people's grammar just because improper grammar annoys you. If it annoys you then ignore it, please don't attack people in the comments just because of their improper grammar and I will not tolerate judging people by their grammar on my lists. - EpicTime9012

Healthy food is already less expensive than junk food. Buying food for your whole family from McDonald's would cost on average $34. Buying a large salad that is already made that is also enough to feed a family of 4 - 6 would cost somewhere between $10 - $16 - EpicTime9012

It's better than slaughterhouses.
Also it can be needed in order to keep the control of animal population. An example was how wolves in Yellowstone were all over the place and endangered other animals because at the time it was illegal to hunt wolves there. - DarkBoi-X
As much as I love animals, it is good to prevent certain animal species from overpopulating since the decline of apex predators such as wolves (at least in the US). Hunting is a way to do this. Once apex predators rise in population, there wouldn't be much of a huge need for hunting unless if it's a hobby (by the way, James Hetfield, the lead singer/rhythm guitarist of Metallica if you don't know him, is doing a hunting reality show, but it's legal hunting). I just want ILLEGAL hunting to end. It's terrible and most apex predators were illegally hunted anyway. Same with animals that aren't even predators like elephants for their ivory. Hunting illegally and for the wrong reasons is bad. Hunting to control from overpopulating is a good thing. Actually, most hunters are actually animal lovers and respect balance. - PhoenixAura81
I don't like to see hunters hurting animals and it's mean. poor animals! - andrewteel

Virtual Reality is honestly too expensive now for your average Joe, so I hope the prices go down and we'll be experiencing another world.

I know that, but I want many habitats preserved and many larger animals like elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and many others adjusting to city and suburban life, living peacefully alongside humans so we would get to see megafauna everyday and it is better for the environment rather than killing them off, which is bad. We should protect them and let them live in cities and make them more docile and tame over time. - DinoLover4242
