Top 10 Things We Can Hope for in the 2020s

Next 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

1 World Peace

I know it's probably never gonna happen but I decided to put it at number 1 anyway because it's something we all want anyway.

In order for this to happen, we must impeach the president: Trump. - irises

Impeaching Trump may or may not be a possibility, but what is certain is that the US needs a better president, regardless of his/her political allegiance.

And that's just one problem. World Peace can only be gained through unity, effective leadership, trust and being willing to risk important things for good outcomes, all of which is very difficult to come across. That, and that there's several problems around the world to overcome too. - CrimsonShark

The ultimate dream

That would be one of the best things ever. - LeRoiDesSapins

2 Better Society

Not just in America, but everywhere. We could all just be classy decent people and treat others with respect.

One where people can accept that not everyone is a clone of them, maybe? - Cyri

Less petty and whiny fans/haters, please. - TheYoshiPyro64

Or less comments like this.

3 No More Shootings at Schools

I live super close to Santa Fe high school. I actually know some of the students there and the day it happened I just broke down, I was so worried about them. Fortunately they all made it out, but the other students who lost their lives, while they may be gone, will be remembered for years to come.

We had Parkland and Santa Fe both happen in the first half of 2018, and those were only the two shootings that ended up getting the most news coverage. This needs to stop. - allamassal

An end to shootings in general, not just school shootings - Kanyae90

Yes please no more of these - SnowLeopard

4 Parents Raising Their Children Better

Anyone encouraging the clobbering of kids should receive lacerations while hung upside down until they fade or die. They deserve this for being uncaring for other human beings who does not deserve it.

Please, beat your kids. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I've been beaten as a child for doing dumb stuff and I have nothing against it. It's discipline. Not abuse. Abuse is when you beat your child for no reason at all. Learn the difference, retards. - Mcgillacuddy

If this problem was fixed then the item above would be also fixed.
(No more shootings at schools)
This is caused by angsty tennagers that see nothing good in life, hate school and everything in it. And since they have easy access to guns (Mostly in the US) they can shoot the school. GREAT! And after that, they kill themselves.
I'm not saying it's the parents fault, but they need to understand teens better. But teens also need to understand parents better. It's a double-edged sword. - MaxPap

Yeah. - Userguy44

5 Better Music

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

Music has gotten worse with every decade. Music especially in the 2010's is trash. No longer where the days where music has message nor with meaning. Nowadays no thought is put into music its all about making songs louder from the competition. Rap has token over music and it's resulting very well. Hopefully, music gets better and actual thought and effort is put into it.

Despite what you think you're saying, know that it reads "I'm lazy and I only listen to what the mainstream has to say".

Music is better nowadays; the mainstream stuff is just bad. - somelifeonaplanet

In my book metal music has been getting better in the 21st century. But if you aren't a metal fan you may not know this. - Metal_Treasure

Yes. No more of that annoying ass Gucci Gang or Whip Nae Nae. - Shadowheart

6 A Better Economy

A well structured and secure global economy, with plenty of jobs for everyone. Life would be easier as people will be empowered to build their lives up leading to a better standard of life for all.

7 Better Politics

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

Right now, the political parties in America are just two groups that loathe the other, which leads to heated fights between people with opposing political views. I hope this improves in the 2020s. - allamassal

Considering how America's politics today are a complete mess, we can only hope for better ones in the next decade (this could also apply to any politics from any nation).

Yeah, I don't think this will be fixed if Americans re-elect Trump in 2020. - MaxPap

8 The War on Terror Finally Ends

Didn't it end in 2013?

Enough said.

9 More Accepting of Different Beliefs

Nobody knows the true meaning of life but to me personally, I think all religions are equal and we need to stop fighting over which one is the right one.

Just no nutty people - you know flat earth society, creation museum, chick tracts, rapture.

Fixing this will fix the war problem. Problem is, it will never happen. Different beliefs is the reason why we do war for the last 2000 years or even more than that. - MaxPap

Civil discourse needs to make a comeback. Eschew obfuscation.

10 More Intelligent People

We need them because they could help us with certain things in life like finding the cure for cancer or inventing time travel. Without them we're nothing.

Yes, please! Including more of them on this site. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Better Entertainment

Hopefully things like movies, games and music get a lot more better and have passion and soul out back into them for once.

Even Sports are becoming a stage for political drama. Seriously quit bringing politics into sports! - Randomator

Yeah, movies today are just movies we want to see so that the makers of it make more money.

It's all about the money. - MaxPap

No more reality shows, please! We need to get back to family-friendly T.V. shows, too. I'm sick and tired of the crap that's on T.V. these days. I remember when families could watch T.V. together, and parents didn't have to worry about their kids hearing and seeing things they shouldn't hear or see. We need to get back to that

12 Less Obsession with the Internet

Duh...But I personally find it difficult. I try but it's hard to find a good balance between the Internet and the real life. Although I stay in touch with some people from my real life using the Internet... - Metal_Treasure

The Internet has it's pros and cons, it's not perfect in anyway, and I wish people would stop treating it like a flawless thing. - RogerWatersfan1999

Agree. People should stop being obsess with Instagram and other social media.

I am kind of internet-obsessed. I don’t have social media though. - PhoenixAura81

Oh yeah the Nicktoons Movie is coming on 2020 and the Loud House Movie and 3rd Spongebob Movie

If healthy food becomes cheaper, more people will eat it, and less people will be fat.

16 Less Pollution

To live a better life we must look to the eco friendly side of us and help our planet to live a long healthy life the friendly way.

Umm with china and india still developing it will increse sadly - Dvafan2

What's this? Pollution? There is no pollution! Trump said it! That whole climat change is a hoax! Trump said it! Why don't you guys believe it? - MaxPap

17 Free Health Care

The United States, for some reason, doesn't have free or universal healthcare, when almost every other developed country is known to have it. It's kind of odd if you ask me. - CrimsonShark

It won't actually be free, but somebody other than you will pay for it.

I doubt that health care will be free... - CaptainMowzker

O CANADA! - LostGuyfrom2018

18 We Go to Mars

Nope, this won't happen. Stupid humans wanting to rule everywhere. Why won't humans try to conserve environments on Earth or other planets by leaving them be (with no human influence, etc)? - DinoLover4242

That would be cool.

*Cough* *Cough* Tumblr *Cough* *Cough* - MaxPap

I believe there's a thing above this saying "Be more accepting of other people's beliefs." What happened to that. idiots. - LordDovahkiin

I agree.

But people are now siding with the anti-pc/feminist crowd and are becoming the sjws themselves.

20 End of SJWs

Do this and I will be happy - GlassweighanCountess

Even though I'm not an anti-sjw, I do have to agree with this, because then the liberal party will start being taken more seriously again, and even though I don't call myself an anti-sjw, sjws are quite annoying, no one can be in denial about that. - RogerWatersfan1999

YES! - YeezySeasonApproaching

Yes please.I am left leaning but I hate SJW's.They just ignore science and they scream bigoted things and call it "diversity".These SJW's need to learn what diversity actually is.Also they should learn what social justice actually is.SJW's are a disgrace to the left. - DarkBoi-X

22 Third-World Countries Will Become More Developed

"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

I accidently voted this - B1ueNew

23 No More Limitless Spending of Other People's Money

More opinions. - DinoLover4242

24 No More Hunting Animals

If lab grown meat is finally developed in 2020, Then we are good with this. Also vegetarians and vegans will finally be able to eat meat. Although they need a patient 0. So an animal victim will have to be killed. - EDT

Lab grown meat needs to be very carefully made.
It is also inhumanely expensive. - BorisRule

*No more illegal hunting - MaxPap

27 For Rule 34 Artists to Stop

Who does it harm? - Martin_Canine

R34 artists aren't my cup of tea either, but it's best to ignore them than to give them negative attention. - CaptainMowzker

Who does this hurt? By the way the undertale community needs to be stopped. enough' said

28 We Meet the Aliens

No, aliens most likely do NOT exist, and if they did, people would have known it by now. Also, if aliens did exist, they would have invaded Earth (if they tolerate our environment) and either kill off or enslave humanity. - DinoLover4242

This has most likely already happened, possibly as early as when Eisenhower was president of the USA.

Eisenhower did meet the aliens, they are here now in a very limited number.

I want to meet these creatures. It would help us advance society. This might have happened, but it’s a secret we don’t know from the government - AnimeDrawer

29 Less Pornographic Content

It's best to ignore them, than negative comments. Porn isn't my cup of tea either :/ - BorisRule

It should be. My Friends ( That were actually kids ) even like that pleasure!

...and I thought we lived in a society where sex is becoming more normal than anything *sigh* - Martin_Canine

Porn should be COMPLETELY ERADICATED! - PhoenixAura81

31 Self Driving Cars Become Available Worldwide

No, this is an awful idea and won't likely happen, not even in 2020, so reason? They steal jobs and choose who to kill in some situations. - DinoLover4242

That's why we need to be VERY careful about programming self driving cars. - BorisRule

No - LordDovahkiin

32 Donald Trump Wins 2020

Whoever posted this is racist. Trump is racist, he believes climate change is a hoax even though climate change is real, he wants to revive dirty power sources (coal, oil, etc), and he's greedy, so he doesn't care about anything except money. - DinoLover4242

An idior put this on here - ihatetrump

Trump is a Racist, it is willfully ignorant not to say that. For example he said Mexican immigrants (All not Illegals) were criminals and rapists, but he needs to make the assumption that some are probably good people. - Gamefreak23788

If he wins in 2020, I'll consider moving to Canada... - CaptainMowzker

You will not, I know you are going to fake the prank, I know your liberal, you just say that but guess what, they didn't go to Canada. GAME OVER! - Maddox121

35 Better Video Games

Maybe if Nintendo stopped releasing the same games for full price every year and If Activision and EA stopped milking Call of Duty, I would be cool with current gaming - B1ueNew

Only if they stop adding microtransactions and listening to the fans - FortniteSucks

Maybe if we could manufacture V.R. and other decent games to be more futuristic, then this would be a success. - EDT

I'm sorry you're offended but obesity is unhealthy and I want Americans to be healthy not lazy and not addicted.

Only if it's not harmful or abusive to the animals and the animal just acts as if it weren't genetically modified, like what happened with the GloFish. I'd love completely tame tapirs, miniature 100% tame elephants, etc, to happen in real life. - DinoLover4242

49 Wild Animals Being Domesticated

I really wish humans had domesticated rhinos (for horns like in a rhino farm in South Africa, so poachers will no longer be a threat to rhinos), tapirs (as pets, etc), lemurs, etc so there would be more diversity of domestic animals. - DinoLover4242

50 Pleistocene Rewilding in North America Begins
