I find it hilarious that white people got so complacent that they actually thought having a stable liberal democracy was the natural order of the universe. If humanity doesn't go extinct in the near future, hopefully they'll learn from previous failures that complacency kills.
Liberal democracy is still more natural than communism. It certainly has both a higher success rate and a longer lifespan that Maoism or Marxism

And America will outlive you as well.
These countries are going through these drastic changes all the time, they definitely won't be the same United States or People's Republic of China. The US will loose it's dominate global superpower status in a decades time and China will probably start annexing and gobbling up some of the smaller defenceless south-east asian countries, building more bases in the Spralty Islands and buying other entire countries entire infrastructure that can't pay off the belt and road debt, whilst the US is goes through huge civil turmoil, meanwhile Russia sits back and laughs and probably annexes half of Ukraine this time and occupies Georgia fully so it can exert more influence in the middle east. What a great future, Cold War 2 anyone?

I feel like people underestimate how badly boomers fucked the world by being lazy and greedy. Liberal democracies don't exist on this planet, it got killed as a result of a generation of people actively refusing to learn new skills for decades yet still wanting to be successful. We live in authoritarian oligarchies with anti-meritocracy ideologies, which is similar to early stage or a slightly more successful Soviet Russia.

I'm losing my optimism faster and faster every passing day. Between the world being thrown into a perpetual authoritarian police state over a fucking flu, the presidency looking to be ripe for fraud and theft, America bursting into flames and being excused as "peaceful protests" and "climate change" and now pedophilia being aggressively normalized as we speak, I'm at a complete loss to find hope in much of anything.

If this really is darkness before the dawn, then we're rapidly approaching the fucking abyss itself.

You know what they say, things have to get worse before they get better. Thing is, with all the shit going down and the shit yet to come, like the election, I get the feeling that if things do get better, it sure as hell won't be until later in the coming decade, if that.

Then again, with religious nuts and conspiritards thinking that anything and everything will lead into WWIII or Jesus's return, who knows if that'll even be a possibility. I would love to think that 2020 ended up a bigger than usual fluke in this clown world we live in. But considering that 2016 was a huge turning point in culture both in North America and worldwide, the increased fears regarding the the political and ecological climates, outer space and the hazards it brings, and people literally killing each other for having different opinions; and the fact that 2020's proven to be consistent with all the bullshit it's given us both serious and outlandish. There is definitely an argument to be made that the 2020s are only going to go downhill from here. Hell, assuming we even survive that long with all these talks about asteroids, solar cycles and climate change making natural disasters worse than ever before, I don't see things improving until at least the early 2030s unless something big happens that changes everything that gets people to realize "Man, everything we've done these last few years were a mistake" and move on.

I know it's not necessarily on topic or even anything new; but I find myself becoming more and more misanthropic with every day that passes.
Have you ever stopped and realized just how fucked up humanity is? Our depravity deepens with our advancement and its disgusting. We have infinite amounts of knowledge at our fingertips at all times with computers and there are still people that torture cats and upload videos of it, our social elite preying on children solely because society tells them not to, people killing themselves on live media just to spread their misery to anyone that will watch, megacorporations spilling into our governing bodies through lobbying, and media that would rather spin a story for ratings or political gain than telling us what we need to know.
We ignore the less fortunate and take it all for granted.

Humanity has a way of ruining everything. We are capable of so much good, but with every good thing we achieve we sink deeper into depravity.
We can put a man on the moon, but we can't stop him from jacking off to cats being crushed alive.

We deserve 2020 and far more.
I know we suck and all, but I don't buy into misanthropy. I just hate the idea of damning all of humanity including the those who don't particularly deserve it. A child who goes to school everyday doesn't deserve the same fate as the murdering thug who tortures animals. Maybe I got the wrong idea here, but I think that's kind of selfish

My benchmark for the outlook of this decade will lie on both the election (obviously), and next spring's tax season. That will be the penultimate deciding point on if we're doomed to be trapped in "new normal" clown world forever. If it doesn't stop, or show serious signs of stopping by then, we are fucked, no ifs ands or butts about it.
What I find really weird about comments like these is that they assume that social change will just stop abruptly. If you're a doomer and think society will slide into total Yemen-level collapse, that isn't the same as now; we won't be sitting around posting on Kiwi Farms if there's a second civil war raging around us, we'll be fighting for survival. Conversely if all this blows over and the economy recovers it won't be like now either. I'm not really taking the optimist or pessimist side here but society just stalling in 2020 for centuries is literally impossible.

I'm holding out for a pandemic to finally hit most/all of the major cities. Even a really potent strain of flu could do it. With the anti-vax shit it's becoming an even greater possibility. I can also see the Muslim hoards finally overtaking Europe and putting down that Asian peninsula LARPing as a continent.
Well fuck.

Now I'm holding out for An Account to become a multi-millionaire with more guns than the US military and an expansive property bigger than some cities. With how suave and intelligent he is it's becoming an even greater possibility.

Comeon this worked once don't let me down.

Obviously, yes. Pics below should explain why:

You see, this all started back in 2008 when Paul Gottfried coined the term "alternative right". In 2009, 4chan raised Stormfront, so Stormfront retaliated, leading to the creation of /new/ in 2010. Richard Spencer created his first alt-right blog in 2010 and took over the NPI in 2011. In January 2011, Moot kiked /new/ and /r9k/, leading to the birth of 4chon.net, which hoards the refugees leading to Moot bringing back /new/ as /pol/ as well as /r9k/ in November 2011. Ever since then, the "alt-right" has been gaining ground. First it was the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street (which later became antifa), Gaddafi, and the protests in Syria leading to the civil war, but in 2012 there was a key event which lead to the rest and that was the shooting of Trayvon Martin. In 2013 when Zimmerman was acquitted, it lead to the formation of BLM.

Now let's fastforward to 2017 after Unite the Right and Trump getting inaugurated. An ABC news poll revealed that 9-10% of Americans agreed with Neo-Nazism/the alt-right. But now in 2020 that number has soared due to the George Floyd, COVID-19 as well as the enormous amounts of OTI activism on social media sites despite shutdowns. Even as far back as 2015 after the Charleston church shooting, Dylann Roof received $5 million in donations on GoFundMe before the fundraiser got shut down. So that tells me that race relations really are souring in this country and we are going to see a revival of National Socialism regardless of how hard the Jews have tried shutting everything down since Charlottesville.

That is a pretty retarded conclusion considering the US was far more racist to black people in the past and still had no problem with kicking nazi ass. If you honestly believe the average white American is going to go full nazi within the next 100 years you might need to get off the computer and actually go outside. I'm more interested in how the support for BLM for Hispanics and Asians is still relatively high, I thought it would be a lot lower.


No the 2020s won't be better, they will still be shit. The 2020s MIGHT slowly be better than the current madness we are in but all of human history is just one big ball of shit, just do the best you can to make sure you and the people you love get through it all. Stop being worried about all of this shit and do the best you can; that's all you can do.

not to be a nihilistic faggot but i dont really care.

majority of earth's population live in some shithole country, i just happened to be lucky enough to be born in a western one where i'm free to sculpt my future.
i see shit that annoys me especially with politics being treated like culture wars now a days, sure! what good is social media if i cant bitch about it and call people faggots? but the older i get the more inconsequential i find it all, i admit.

like, rewind a few years; would it really have affected me, personally, if hilary won the election? i didnt want her to, but would the country really have changed for me??? id still work my 9-5. id still come home to my loving dog. id still hop on the internet to read up on lolcows.

i guess its a selfish way to look at it. but i'm just too tired to give in to fear mongering. most i do is come on here to laugh at spergs or complain about whatever faggot shit is going on, but in the end i still know deep in my heart it doesn't matter to me.

so unless they start dragging people out of their homes and making them face the wall for the crime of saying NIGGER, or laughing at troglodyte trannies, i think i'll be fine lol.

.....
well... i guess there is one thing that makes me a bit worried. i do feel like pedophilia has been hinted at being normalized more and more lately. i think thats the one thing i couldn't stand to see. but im optimistic that it wont get far. haha right guys? no ones going to follow california's example right??? right?????

The United States does not necessarily equate the Republic... A lot of people like to compare the US to the Roman Empire but the US is more like the Roman Republic before their civil wars and Caesar.

China is also starting to feel the effects of the one child policy. The number of workers they’re losing is significantly increasing every year, as well as the number of people who can’t serve in the military. Also, due to the one child policy and their cultural norms, with the death of every Chinese soldier, 2 parents and 4 grandparents lose their retirement/investment. They’re not Maos China that can suffer significant loses and it won’t affect them. They’ve peaked, they just haven’t fully realized it yet. Also, India will be knocking on China’s doorstep. They can bounce back eventually but not within the next few decades.

Russia though could very well profit from a weakened, more authoritarian, and/or disinterested United States and ‘reclaim’ a lot of land lost when the USSR broke up.

You are right. If say, Biden does win, it is not the end of the world. Life still goes on just as usual.
Very rarely do politics seem to completely change the landscape nowadays. The Obama era felt like Bush, and Trump feels like Obama in terms of everyday life. Policy may change, but our routines and interactions more than likely will not. It is good to keep tabs though and try to fight for something better.

Social Media really is a curse. While I like forums for their more open discussions, the constant move towards platforms like Twitter or FaceBook feels like a detriment. Those places value quick, not thought through responses that just end up escalating things. In some ways, I can see humans starting to leave the internet more because of such. The web was not designed to house everybody, in my opinion, and now we are seeing the consequences of multiple generations given platforms to the whole world in seconds. 2020 just needs to usher out tech, as boomerish as that sounds. Make the internet more of a small thing once again, you know?

I actually believe that the 2020s on up to the 2030s are going to be way worse. We are in for a lot of strife globally, but most people don't really realize it yet. And it isn't the left or the right or Trump that is going to cause all of it. Those are just symptoms. I found this video to be pretty insightful:


(Just skip past the RAID SHADOW LEGENDS spergery)

His argument that the world is crazy now because of

1. Population growth,
2. The growth of modern communications,
3. the decline of traditional religion, and
4. the decline of the west,

seems pretty evident when you look at the big picture. I don't think we will live in some Mad Max world in the near future, but I don't think things are going to be as prosperous and peaceful on average as they were for the past few decades. Things will never be as good for future generations as they were for the Baby Boomers.

He also has a video about the possible future wars. I'm not sure how much I agree with that one, but the India/China situation seems like it will be the scariest.


As for something like all the culture wars in America over pop culture and the like, I kinda feel like things are going to swing in the other direction fairly soon. I feel like a lot of people are tired of hearing about crap like representation in comic books and all that when there are so many bigger problems out there. There is also the Go Woke Get Broke factor, which I can't imagine will continue to be sustainable even for larger companies.
