I'm wondering what the next big thing will be once the capeshit fad fully dies out?

Honestly, I think the 2020's will return to the divide between "normie pop culture" and "geek culture" that existed before the "geek is chic" trend of the 2010's, and I think the SJW culture war bullshit will likely have a lot to do with the division's return

My personal guess is that we'll see a second anime boom in geek circles and for normies, I'm expecting war movies to be the next big trend in normie summer blockbusters (especially if the backlash against wokeness happens sooner than later) and I could also see a return to edgy horror and action movies with hard R-ratings.

The idea that Hollywood is going to sacrifice their golden-egg-laying goose isn't going to happen: even if by some Satanic miracle the idea of cancelling all superhero media gains traction in the general US populace (I seriously doubt that's going to happen, but I've been wrong before), the Chinese eat up the Marvel films like popcorn.
Yeah, how did these faggots' attempt to get Paw Patrol canceled go?

I love how these assholes keep proving me right that they're just the old Moral Majority dyed blue.

Will this stupid bullshit end up peaking people on the movement like Teletubies did the old one though?

Not to make this a dick measuring contest of who is more "enlightened", SJWs are the equivalent of someone who is a lolcow who does have a vague hint that the world is the Matrix, but they instead do otherkin lifestyles instead of notice the Agent Smiths that gradually don't even bother due to their self sabotaging exceptional ineptitude. SJWs think they are doing the right thing, but are still stuck to the infrastructure than anything philosophical or inherent to humanity that goes beyond their privileged first world cradle they'd (and we'd) obviously die the first thing it goes kaput.
My own analogy was that SJWs think there's something wrong with the world, but they go out of their way to help the agents without even being possessed. Combining mine with yours—and adding that they think Neo and co. are the enemies—makes it perfect, IMO.

I've said it myself that SJWs will not stop until they've sucked every single last ounce of happiness and joy from this world, even stuff they themselves enjoy they'll turn on.

Because what it boils down to is they believe this is an unjust world at its core and therefore happiness is an unjust act, only ceaseless misery is "woke" enough, nobody should be smiling, laughing and having a good time when there's injustice happening somehow, somewhere (which is always going to be the case)

Here's the crazy thing, they may not necessarily be wrong, maybe this world is a Hell that humans supplant illusionary better ideas of reality upon, but to that I say, so what? Why would anyone want the alternative?

They are Neo trying to wake humanity up from the Matrix when "reality" is nothing but a dead wasteland, why bother?

The end game of these people if they gain the absolute power they so desperately desire will be a Jonestown style mass suicide on a human race scale, self extinction, the ultimate act of "social justice"

This is what strikes me as odd. Most regimes, real and fictional, usually put up some kind of happy Potemkin Village facade and force everyone to go along with it. People who display any kind of dissatisfaction or anything less than enthusiastic endorsement are considered criminals. SJWs are different in a fundamental way. They remind me of the Green Lady, the villain from the Narnia story The Silver Chair. After thwarting the Green Lady's plans, the heroes are getting ready to escape, but she tries to bewitch them all into thinking that her horrible underground realm is the only realm they've ever known and that this "Narnia" place they come from that's full of light and magic is just in their imagination. The heroes almost succumb to her spell, but the most cynical and practical member of their company, Puddleglum, burns himself to jolt himself awake, and then says this:

“One word, Ma'am," he said, coming back from the fire; limping, because of the pain. "One word. All you've been saying is quite right, I shouldn't wonder. I'm a chap who always liked to know the worst and then put the best face I can on it. So I won't deny any of what you said. But there's one more thing to be said, even so. Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things-trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We're just babies making up a game, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. So, thanking you kindly for our supper, if these two gentlemen and the young lady are ready, we're leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for Overland. Not that our lives will be very long, I should think; but that's a small loss if the world's as dull a place as you say.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair


The SJWS want everyone to be depressed and miserable in their Social Justice World because they don't want anyone remembering how good and meaningful things were in the time before their ascendance. Their art is dull, nihilistic and miserable because they are, and they want everyone to share in that misery. The only way they can accomplish this is to take over the media and storytelling, and, like the Green Lady, present to us a version of the world that's dark and dull. And then convince us that it's the only world that's ever existed. If we don't wake ourselves up like Puddleglum and tell the SJWs where to stick it, we'll end up trapped in their world forever.

I'm not even going to read it. Cops prop up the state. The power of the state, and the cops, stems from the society (democratic or otherwise). Superheroes are unaccountable vigilantes who don't need society at all. SJWs will never cancel them, because their idealized vision of themselves has a lot in common with them: possessed of speshul powers, young, hot, flamboyant, the most important people in the world, a danger to normie society, ennobled by neetdom, grace individual normies by having relationships with them, and of course thematically childish. Meanwhile, the stock media cop is a balding alcoholic washout estranged from his wife, who pays a whore for talking and she laughs when he leaves: he's the alphabet squadron idea of a normie.

Avatar 2 is around the corner. Maybe Disney will bank on that to be their tentpoll series this decade. James Cameron said he wants to do 4 sequels and already has the preproduction done for most of them. 2 and 3 have already been "shot" while 4-5 are awaiting the results of 2 & 3 to see if Disney goes forward.

CS Lewis is clearly talking about Christianity there and that's the conclusion I've come to as well, it's doesn't matter whether Christianity is literally "real" or not, the effect it has on civilization is real and good, it gives people meaning in their lives and a good moral code to follow.

I'll take Christianity over SJW's morality any day, we've seen the effect they have and it's nothing good, we can either dream about a beautiful Heaven or live in a Hellish reality.

SJWs will turn the world into a Hell on Earth if they're not stopped.

Aren't most of them white?

Never actually seen one of them except Superman with Christopher Reeve.
Aside from seeing Superman II and the 1989 Batman just for Jack Nicholson's sheer hamminess, you probably stopped at a good time.

I can forsee a lot of "alternative history" war movies where all the oppressed, crippled, put-upon peepos of color do what white guys ACTUALLY did. Unfortunately they'll point to Quentin Tarantino's recent movies as a precedent. They can't strictly rewrite history, yet, so this will do for now. Get ready for blue-hairs in wheelchairs rolling up on Omaha Beach.

Exactly. A lot of common sense atheists like Adam Carolla are starting to see how useful religion is to the masses. If you're an atheist you should be hoping that you are rare and, ultimately, that you are wrong.

As a Christian: thank you for having the nobility of tolerating our existence, but please: go away unless you are serious about believing in the sacrifice of our Lord, Jesus Christ and accepting the truth of the Passion and Resurrection. The faith is only cheapened by those who see it as a tool for worldly gain, rather than the path to salvation. I do not know what your values are, but given that you are atheists and concerned about the fate of the world, you most likely won't actually like what Christian values are: and I don't mean the rejection of homosexual relationships.
I prefer the noughties atheists who despise Christians for their faith than this condescending new breed who think that us Christians are actually important and that most people should be made to believe in God- just not them.

I am a Christian, not an atheist, I'm a genuine believer.

But I was just making the same argument CS Lewis was making that regardless of whether one is personally a genuine believer or not, Christianity is superior to the alternative, which is what we have running roughshod over society now.

I really hope after Wokeism finally crashes and burns we don't get a retarded retread of the Christian Right and instead get a renewed focus on individualism like in the mid 90s-2000s. Although with the way the 2010s and 2020 have been autistic retreads of the 60s and 70s so far I fully expect we're heading to the 1980s 2 electric boogaloo in a decade.

Well, that's your perspective, and I think that it's orthogonal to the purpose of the Christian mission; this world is sinful and is passing away, so why should a Christian concern himself with it, rather than his fellow man? Whenever the churches become connected with the world, they fall into corruption, whether we talk about the pornocracy and the Borgian Popes or the state of the Anglicans today, who worship English Politics instead of Christ, or megachurches, which worship Mammon instead of Christ.
Christ himself said that the Church would be small, irrelevant, and persecuted in the last days before final judgement, and that we shall not know the day nor the hour: so who are we to contravene him? Concern yourself with your soul and personal conversion, instead of tainting the faith through trying to tie the Church more closely to the world. If God desires the Church to increase, it shall increase- if he wills it to decrease, it shall decrease.

I hope for that as well; a period where people neither try to chain God to the world nor tear down the churches, when my faith isn't seen as a political statement.
