    The 2010s are nearly gone.  How will you remember the 2010 decade?   What were the good things about this decade?  What were the bad things about this decade?  What you expect from the 2020 decade?  Will the 2020 decade be BETTER or WORSE than the decade of 2010?   Also the year 2020 will be the 75TH ANNIVERSARY of the end of World War II.   How will America & the world progress in 2020?

      As for me, I believe I remember the 2010 decade as the arrival of the messiah seeking those of us who have "extra oil" enough to carry us through Armageddon and into the first millennium, beginning late in the 2020 decade, of the seven leading to the rapture during the seventh millennium just before the alternative civilization arrives.

    This last decade for me was by far the worst of my entire life. With all my might tried to pioneer eco villages and tiny houses and found out they are more Illegal the than weed.

    Yet with such, heavy challenges much like how I pioneer sand and snow sculptures bussiness worldwide, there was a painful learning curve. Got my sh_t together now, and ready for an unstoppable high energy wave of success for a decade or two to come.  As far as the rest of the World, the world will change itsself.

    The weirdest decade of my life

      Probably the weirdest for most people.

          Mostly the synthetic wealthy are allowed to keep getting greedier as destruction follows in our very weird world.

            It has always been this way.

    I see the 2020s as a decade of trying to rebuild from Trump's destruction of this country, but I'm not sure that we will ever recover. We have too much "progress" that won't help us rebuild people's lives. For example, robotics and AIs will replace a staggering number of workers. To boot, our country has a failing infrastructure and does not have the money or the raw materials to rebuild roads, streets, bridges, sewers, water systems, etc. Our farm land is worn out, and it is being taken for new construction...which will surely come to a halt. Most electrical grids aren't government or municipally owned, so if materials are available, those willing and able to work will have jobs. That is, if the renewable energy industry can prevail over the oil and gas industry. People will have to be able to afford energy at all if that is to happen. And without jobs, how can they? We are already in a vicious cycle.

    Our allies are starting to hate us, or at the least, have no sympathy for us. Most of them depended on our generosity. As with friends, allies tend to be fair-weather friends anyway. They're gone as soon as the beer runs out.

    I almost foresee our falling into a tribal society in which people may have to go back to depending upon each other for shelter, sustenance and protection. The world is depleted of raw materials right now. These materials can't be replaced in a generation or two. At least the Native Americans on the reservations and the hill people still know how to live on very little. They will survive even if Mr. and Mrs. Gotrocks do not. But you asked about the 2020s, and I believe it will be at least 25 years before that happens so I'm getting ahead of myself.

      ???  Robotics and AI's are Trumps destruction of the country?  Our failing infrastructure, that has been going on for decades, is iTrumps destruction of the country?  Farm land that is worn out is Trumps destruction?  That people may not be able to afford "alternate energy" is Trumps destruction?

      How do you come to these conclusions that President Trump is destroying our country with problems that existed decades before he came on board?  It's much like saying the world is depleted of natural resources...as we continue to produce, and use, more and more of them every day.

      I share your concerns. We have a President who is doing everything opposite of what needs to be done with the economy, environment and government.

      If we can have hope, it falls on every one of us to do what we can to help solve these problems instead of making them worse.

      We do have many people who already think that way. It's just a matter of whether there are enough of them.

        Maybe Trump is a good thing, if he can show how evil the US Government realy is, by his leading the way. Maybe Americans will wake up and be aware and bring in :Power to the People:.
