What are your predictions for the 2020s?

Recommended Posts

In my opinion:

  • People will stop "channelling" the 20th century and begin properly embracing the 21st century. This will impact music and fashion especially.
  • The beauty ideal will change and women will go for a more natural look as opposed to the excessive Kardashian/Instagram makeup look.
  • East Asia (China, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan making a comeback) will become a proper force to be reckoned with and start massively influencing us. They have already overtaken the west in terms of technology, cars etc. so it's only a matter of time they start impacting other aspects of our lives.
  • The world will still be a mess in terms of politics- threats of nuclear war, rising political division etc. will still be a thing. Things will get worse before they get better.
  • The number of TV licences will drop with people choosing to use services such as netflix, hulu etc. Cinema will still remain big though.
  • Towards the end of the decade, androids will become a more common thing.
  • Basically everyone will own a 4k/curved/smart TV.
  • The Kardashians and Jenners will be totally forgotten.
  • Trump will be gone.
  • Malls/shopping centres will face a MASSIVE decline in favour of online shopping.
  • Self driving cars won't take off.

This is so exciting but i'm not sure about the date tbh. This is only 9 years away, I remember reading a book in school when I was a kid and they were predicting man would walk on Mars by 2010.

But us colonising Mars in the 2030s seems pretty accurate :shrug:

I actually think there will be a shift. Right now the western world is super liberal and it's cool to be non-binary, hate Christians, talk about cultural appropriation, and micro-aggressions. But I'm already slight starting to see it happen but people will become conservative again and that will be considered the norm. Liberalism/Conservatism seems to work on a cycle and apparently gen Z is far more conservative than liberals/millennial.

Which part? 

I used to watch those cheesy documentaries on the History channel about 10-12 years ago that would always talk about the Yellowstone volcano erupting and I would lie awake stressed at night nnn.

Basically that. I also stress over nuclear attacks (which I think are more likely to happen, unfortunately)

I used to be paranoid about asteroids and black holes hitting earth :kelly: but yeah, I think nuclear attacks would be more likely to happen as sad as that sounds. Better get that passport ready!
