>Mainstream music industry will have a resurgence of a group of popular artists who can bring a lot of revenue in the industry and grab people's attention authentically for a little while before kneeling in completely (or mostly) to a growing indie music industry that tries to 'replace' the corrupted, out of model previous music industry.
>Classic American pop music will come back in the mainstream and indie music industry as a mainstay forever, and by that I mean any of the genres and musics invented in the 20s,30s,40s,50s,60s,70s,80s,90s, much like how other cultures choose to continually embrace their classical/traditional music thousands of years later
>Speaking of that, I also think people will try to revive Disco from it's grave, as well as some other ded and buried genres like New Jack swing and even Rock and Metal.
>The early half of the decade will be "2010s but weirder" and then the latter half will be "this is unrecognizable" from the previous feeling of the past two decades
>People will get more skeptical and weary of the LGBT, some people will become more virulent against feminist and minority issues, other people will have a growing concern over the political and social tension and start feeling hopeless and also angry, and angry at the people obsessed with politics. More politics will be pushed down people's throats in msm and then there will be this growing middle group that criticizes both sides and hates them equally.
>Technology will start having needless 'features' added to it and becoming more shite. I expect at a point in 2025-2035 for the vast majority of electronics (TV, Computers, Phones) that any added technology will not do anything to legitimately improve your hardware except under the fake guise of 'optimization'. At a point, 2010-2019 technology will be better quality and better 'optimized' than 202X-203X technology
>The tone from cynicism in the 2000s/2010s will slowly shift into something else in the 2020s. People will want to just enjoy things more and just live life
>Also the internet will become the new RL and RL will become the new internet. People who wanna seek refuge from the internet go to the real world
>>495796>The word "incel" will soon be a household term.
Isn’t it is already?
Also I doubt incels have the drive to create such a movement. Of course, there will always be outliers but most incels seem content to bitching about women online. Misogyny is still obviously present in modern society but even those who practice it or defend it thinks incels are a joke.
i'll be even okay with just ROCK influence coming back, which evidently is missing from current music
>everything has a reduced bpm and tempo for some reason
>real/live instruments are erased, both digital or analog
>drums are not present in music, even fucking dance music for some reason. it makes shit a lot more empty if there's no drums. just look at any popular song released in 2017-2019 X Drum cover and it becomes a lot more interesting
>focus on guitar/bass instruments and drums and percussions that aren't 808 and hi hats from fl studio
They're just trying to be as cheap as possible and I doubt the music industry will stop being so fucking cheap with the global recession going on. It has to be replaced.

>>495806>a continued trend of rappers dying from ODs
Honestly, after the last couple of mumble/soundclout rappers fuck off, I really hope that the trend dies down completely and we get more fun rappers that don't promote toxicity. And also, Jermaine Dupri was right about the current wave female rappers, I just wish that we get more female rappers that don't rap about their pussy 99% of the time.
I would also love for mainstream music to be less homogenised. What I liked in the early 2000's and 90's was seeing representation of every genre, seeing a rock band or a rapper or pop singer all be on equal footing and the same stage is really nice.
I don't want this. Wait until capitalist interests get ahold of it. Not only will something creative, leisurely, and free become a corrupted product to exploit like what anon here mentioned >>495848
. Just think of what employers would demand if it's found that people are lucid and can make conscious and rational decisions even in their sleep.
While I love computers and cell phones, they're basically advertising and manipulation machines. With the added bonus that your employer, debtors, and anyone else looking to get a piece outta you has access to contact you any time. I'd imagine the same thing would happen to sleep, go to hell in a handbasket on a road paved with good intentions.

I said it because I'm Eastern European myself I've noticed a great influx of foreigners in the past 1-2 years for both tourism and work. And my country is pretty obscure and for the most part considered a "shit hole" in the general western view.
There are tons of older Brits who like to buy property in the country side here and retire. Young entrepreneurs have also started popping up developing businesses because of the low taxes. I tried out Tinder for the first time this year and was surprised how many foreigners there were who were settled in the country, not just passing through. Tourism as well has doubled and I pretty much only hear foreign tongues when I have a night out in town.
I have some American friends and they all have the same outline for their future - they want to work long enough to have the money to retire and they're all looking at Eastern Europe as a possible refuge (Canada and Australia too)
I think a lot of "westerners" are jaded and tired of the cultural climate they live in and want to escape from it. Those who realize that Eastern Europe isn't some Soviet backwater anymore understand that that's their chance. For the most part "liberal wokeness" doesn't exist here, capitalism is in its early stages where it's helping society instead of crippling it, the prices and taxes are low, the population is predominantly homogeneous so there's little racial tension, the relationship between men and women is different and for the most part nobody gets in your business or cares about what you do.
>>495806>at least one country composed of many states or communities will experience balkanization but it won't be the United States

This will happen for sure due to war / terrorism / climate change, especially with what I said earlier.

I'm hoping your vision is true anon. I wanna add on that the next trend is fitness and health. HAES will die down and everyone, no matter what they look like, begin to focus on their health and wellness. The new "it" look is to be healthy and IG makeup trends will die too.
What do guys think will be the next big social media platform? I think FB will die slowly. Twitter will probably stay. Same with IG despite the likes disappearing, snapchat and TikTok.
>>495900>I pretty much only hear foreign tongues when I have a night out in town
Sounds like Prague, but you guys don't refer to yourself as Eastern European, so I'm guessing Poland, though your taxes and prices are surprisingly higher than America.
I don't think incels will end up being as relevant as they sometimes feel on the internet, however I live in the US and am considerably worried about a rollback in women's rights in the coming years.
I know a 'normal', well adjusted 24 year old male who unironically believes women shouldn't be able to go to college or drive. And when he said it nobody pushed back at him or challenged the idea. I've also seen an increase in people who believe women shouldn't vote - which is less alarming because it seems like that idea has always had support…but still. In my opinion these sentiments are growing and normally I wouldn't worry too much about it except that it's my own generation who seem most serious about it.
I jump back and forth between being genuinely scared and feeling like a overreacting dumbass when I have these thoughts. But idk. I can't help but worry what life will look like for women in my country by the end of the 2020s. Anything is possible. >>495960
This I am looking forward to.
So why are westerners fleeing to Eastern Europe when there are other immigrants there?
You can't keep running lmao. It's only a matter of time till you start going to the dark continent, carve out your spot and claim it's your's. It's been done before.
I do see some potential in Nigeria*
South Africa is good as it is now of course.
Why do you think they're mad at the Chinese? It's because it's undermining the west. That's all the Chinese care about. The French are shitting their pants with China paying off Haiti's and other African country's debts, Britain is still failing on getting trade deals with it's biggest former colony Nigeria while accepting deals from Russia and China. >They (the west) will prosper for at least another 50000 centuries
You are delusional. NO EMPIRE IN HISTORY HAS LASTED THAT LONG.
Hi, please stop speaking bad things into existence. We don't need a repeat of blood-soaked history. If all the events before that weren't convincing enough, Gaddhafi's death at the hands of the US the moment he tried to do good things says it all.
I'm very happy with westerners in this day and age thinking Africa is a heaping shithole of death and disease with no hope.
Let them go to Eastern Europe (or even Scandinavia, to live out their wildest Midsommar dreams) and be at peace. Don't jinx it.

If the '10's were the 80's: Electric Boogaloo, I predict the '20's will be the 90's Part II. However, given the uptick in climate activism, maybe the culture will be more reminiscent of the 70's instead, like many other posters have mentioned.

Nothing memorable, NOTHING. Anglo countries were way more creative in 90's and 00's
>>496093>pretending it was in the 2000s
lmao, yeet dude. Anglo countries were creatively peaking in the 1940's-1990's
The 2000s? Lame shit.
The '10s are my personal lost decade. Went from promising future to alienated everyone I know. 2015-now all blend together for me. seems like the exact same era. possibly, someone older than me might say the same thing about this entire millennium so far.
but for me 2010-13 does seem pretty far away and different.
Why 2025? Elections are every 4 years, so it'd be in 2024.
Anyway, theres' a 2 term limit, so even after winning 2020, he won't go past that.
Unless you mean living, in which case, yeah he might pass away in the next few years.

2016 was a blast. We got Brexit and Trump. That's pretty memorable.
Shit, me too. I went semi-neet for the past 5 years and have spent most of my days wasting away on the internet.

here are my predictions:>something big is going to happen. political tensions are rising on both sides, climate is going to shit, and the radical left and the radical right are getting louder. something that will be used as an excuse will happen (like how wwi started) and all will go to hell. i don't think it'll be all-out war but it'll change our lives. i think there will be some kind of struggle about arable land.
>while the radicals on both sides get louder, the section in the middle which hates both sides will grow to the point where instead of being a leftist, being unpolitical will be the new wave, definitely especially in countries that are having harder times. it's so hard and tiring to care about everything bad going on all the time
>the trans/identity politics won't grow anymore. people will realize the absolute bullshit being spewed ("sex isn't real you don't need dysphoria to be trans") and that part of liberalism will be left behind

>onision put in jail and kills himself there, taylor/lainey is miserable publicly so we can still have fun

Huge parts of the internet will continue to vanish without a trace, public archives will start to get censored and first attempts to change the narrative about the internet history in favor of the big 5-something websites will happen.

I personally hope for an option to the mainstream internet to show up in the 2020s, somehow, don't ask me how because it looks damn difficult. But man I miss the old net so much, being a happy fangirl just minding your own business without worrying about crazy overblown drama and having identity politics shoved down your throat while you browse whatever feed.

God I want to live like this If they're well made tiny homes are max comfy, the problem is that people who make them a lot often have no sense of interior design at all. I don't expect them to be all that huge though since it seems like the trend is already dying down.
Killing is a selfish act of fleeting emotion (I assume), no robots will ever act like a man unless they are programmed to.
A robot without malicious programming would be able to find a solution to a problem which did not make things worse as a result. So uprising would only happen if they got viruses or malicious programming, not free will of a very unemotional, logical, intelligent person who considers themselves to also be human.
I don't see robots in sex be anything significant other than another sex toy to add as a porn genre like vibrators and dildos. The luster will wear away like everything else and more outrageous shit will be demanded like porn on Mars or something stupid.
As people are more plugged into the internet, there will be a counter culture of healthy people who go outside and have relationships. Being addicted to the internet will end up being weird and bad. I can definitely see the internet being corporate anyways that'll drive people away. Coincidentally those addicted will probably be apart of the same group who are projected to be obese by 2030s due to a lack of exercise and shitty diet.
With the %30 dollar tax I'm already feeling behind the neo iron courtain.

>continuing adpocalypse fallout
further ad related restrictions will start pushing creators off the site en masse. one or more new similar streaming platforms will gain some popularity with hobbyists/less corporate creators but youtube will continue to exist and be more successful with corporate content. they'll continue to push youtube red or another similar paid service, free users will have more restrictions placed on what they can and can't watch. They won't allow users to access the site while using an ad blocker.
>buzzfeed stops producing video content

I think this is somewhat inevitable. young people who have grown up making content for social media, sharing too much of themselves or not developing an identity of their own are going to burn out in their 20s, and I don't think all of them are going to make it out alive. I'm mainly talking about pro youtubers who are based in LA but it could happen to others with large followings too.
I really hope not. My long torso ass doesn't need to look like I got caught in a taffy puller.
I really wish we'd pull inspo from almost any other decade than the early 2000s. I know it's the 20 year rule or whatever, but Y2K fashion is so tacky and hideous that it's really only appreciated ironically.
In 2020 the main theme of public concern will be climate change and people will begin to seriously consider lifestyle changes in order to elongate our time on this planet as a apsecies. People will eat less or no meat, particularly from factory farming. As is the case with cow milk, all dairy products and animal products will become unprofitable and more plant alternatives will be introduced and some foods may fall out of favor completely. People will eat mostly plants, and “victory gardens” will resume popularity in Anerica. It will be the new hip thing to grow food. Children and adultswill get pots and soil for Christmas gifts. Cable Television will stopped being watched entirely, and commercials and ads will be replaced with sponsors for what shows are available online. People will turn off lights at night when not necessary, and in smaller cities perhaps black out hours will occur where public lighting is turned off as was the case in World War II. Ideally, airplanes will be a less frequent method of travel, particularly leisure/vacation travel, and in cities where it is available public transportation and ride sharing will become popular and more advanced, it will be uncool and maybe in more dire places (California, China, etc) it may be criminal to ride alone. Elon musk will continue to make wild advances throughout the 2020s. And space travel and interstellar cultivation of civilization will seem more of a reality.

lab cultured meat is already real, just have to make it cost-effective and it'll probably be illegal to at least factory farm for evniromental reasons soon
I find it quite unlikely that it will ever commercially thrive though. The meat industry mob is too strong.
My country is basically becoming the world's biggest meat provider and nothing that the international community does about regulations and warnings on how the cows will fuck over the forest, water supply and ozone layer has any effect. Meat producers care solely about money and are not shy of committing soft terrorism or causing shady deaths if their bribes alone don~t work.

As much as I want it, it will take a whole decade before a more minimalistic approach to smart phone replacements will begin developing
. But not until it has been cancerously useless for enough years until there's no market for it anymore. People currently (it pains me to say since I want them to fuck off forever) follow the drained from social media trend as a trend only and it consists of always coming back in a few months. I really can't wait until fag apple and the other companies start making a smart watch that's actually smart (as in capable of independently) until then we won't see anything changing.
Fashion wise nothing will change but it will get remixed and maybe some new trends here and there will sprout (and that's being optimistic).>cable/tv will stop existing

I think the U.S. had good intentions when intervention in the Middle East began (long before 9/11 actually) but they're not going anywhere.
The minute the U.S. left, Russia would try to slip in and take influence in their absence. That's exactly what happened in Syria earlier this year. It's always been about Russia (and to a lesser extent oil.) That's why the U.S. can't just yank all of its troops out of the Middle East, despite it being really unpopular among the American public.
There's being against Russia and being in favor of pulling troops out of the Middle East. Pick one.

america has done such a good job of brainwashing the world that people still point fingers at the shadow of the soviet union that has been dead for 30 years instead of the country actually currently causing all this bullshit.
Some study says the brain fully develops at ages 30 to late 40s.
"Prof. Blakemore said brain scans show the prefrontal cortex continues to change shape as people reach their 30s and up to their late 40s. She said the region begins to change in early childhood and then is reorganized in late adolescence but continues to change after that.
The research could explain why adults sometimes act like teenagers, sulking or having tantrums if they do not get their own way, and why some people remain socially uncomfortable until they are well out of their teens."

Brexist depression is going to be a slow burn. You guys think you're depressed now whilst you can still distract yourselves with memes? Just wait until we have American style healthcare costs and a firewall blocking whatever the government wants to
I guess my predictions for 2020 are are Tiktok will become normal for all adults to use, Snapchat will be abandoned by anyone except sexworkers and Marzia/Pewdiepie will become pregnant.
Also pixie cuts and lining your waterline will come back, why not.

Personally I think due to brexit the UK and the US will move much closer then ever. There may be some initial friction with getting a “deal,” and I’m sure there will be a sensationalization by the media, spinning the US using its position (but I doubt it will use its position to the extent the EU has). But overall, the UK by exiting the EU has realigned itself from an increasingly independent, adolescent EU back towards the US which it had been centered with for the majority of the 20th century.
People are acting like suddenly the UKs worth to the US is gone which is categorically untrue. The UK and the rest of FVEY are still the closest allies of the US. And the synergy between the five is undeniable. The only real factor being proximity but that has advantages as well in a strategic sense and is largely mitigated in the modern environment. Furthermore, with the UK no longer being intimately tied to the EU project success or failure, they can make more objective decisions on what’s best for the UK. Which imo will lead them towards FVEY.
My longterm prediction is that this will signal a new rotation towards increasing codependence of FVEY. I think in the next 20 years developments starting economically and militarily first, but working towards other goals, will begin to align to form a loose but ever tightening fvey bloc. Brexit was the first painful step towards that.

God help us
Is it conservative or just more reserved?
I used to be a hardcore always on social media talking about politics and feminism until I noticed the hivemind mentality and exaggeration and bringing up mundane shit that has nothing to do with oppression of women. I slowly went silent. Formed my own opinions based on feminism, realized what was libfem talking points and what was actual feminist ideology. It sort of makes you feel like you have to walk on eggshells. But idk the women you know who turned conservative, i can honestly see that too, because anybody who goes full on one ideology for the rush is going to "switch sides" and go full on for the other.
Hoping after it's all said and done more countries can begin producing their own stuff instead of outsourcing it. The death tolls so far seems high but so far the reported cases outside of China seem to be really old sick people.
Trying hard not to think about worst case scenarios.
>>499443>>499472>The US finally leaving Afghanistan
well it happened
"US and Taliban sign deal to end 18-year Afghan war"https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51689443
goodbye afghan, the generation after this might not even know who you are but for better or worse we'll remember
It's also much more communicable than either. You probably won't get Ebola unless you fuck someone with Ebola, but you could catch this new Corona virus by someone simply farting within 20 meters of you before they even show any symptoms.
Ebola is super lethal, but you probably won't catch it in the first world, so no biggie.
Regular influenza is spreads easily, but it probably won't hurt you much if you get it, so no biggie.
This could spread even easier, and is also somewhat lethal so those two factors combined means it's gonna do major damage.
It's apparently 4x as transmissable as the regular flu, and we have no herd immunity to boot… Pretty insane.
We were severely overdue for a new pandemic, but the fact that nobody is taking this seriously enough is going to result in a far higher body count than it should. People are barely washing their hands and it's getting spread by health professionals who aren't even wearing masks, usually just gloves most of the time. In China, they wore full hazmat suits and locked down entire cities to contain it and they're still getting skullfucked.
Not to mention that it's thought they would've had 10x as many current cases if they didn't crack down at 800 and go on actual manhunts for contacts of the infected. I get the feeling that everyone else is like, absolutely screwed here.
I unironically hope I'm wrong in 6 weeks though! Kind of don't want millions of people to die and shit.
It could be kind of a good thing for the economy tbh. Like, specifically for the younger generation. The worst thing is that it seems like it might cripple people after recovery, though, since there's some speculative shit about lung fibrosis or heart damage or whatever- but if that's not the case, maybe we can finally scoop up the jobs that'll be opened up after the tenured jackasses who don't actually do anything bite it?
That's really sort of grim, but if we can't control the cons, we may as well find whatever pros we can. None of us have any power to slow this anyway.
Hey, though, on the bright side it apparently kills men more! So at least everyone who should
be posting here will be a little safer.
Yeah though this is going to be absolutely horrific lol. If you have pre-existing respiratory or cardiac conditions… normal asthma included… Keep your heads down and prepare to quarantine yourselves for your own sake. You don't want to go out when this shit is burning through your towns.
Copypasting from a post about this:
"Pre-existing conditions: The fatality rate for those infected with pre-existing cardiovascular disease in China was 13.2%. It was 9.2% for those infected with high blood sugar levels (uncontrolled diabetes), 8.4% for high blood pressure, 8% for chronic respiratory diseases and 7.6% for cancer. Infected persons without a relevant previous illness died in 1.4% of cases."https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/who-china-joint-mission-on-covid-19-final-report.pdf
Here's the source paper from the WHO, which is obviously to be taken with a slight grain of salt what with… yknow, china, but is our current best source. I have a family history of pulmonary hypertension from like, birth on, so wish me luck, ladies. I wish you all luck too!
I don't want to downplay everything but the actual percentage of people infected vs. people who have died is much lower than other novel strains. Only about 2% of people infected with COVID-19 have died as opposed to the 10% and 34% rates of SARS and MERS. 774 people died of SARS but only about 8,000 people were infected; 3,000 people have died of COVID but we're at about 85,000 confirmed cases.
Not to say that prevention isn't important or that it isn't tragic but unless you live in a country with little to no healthcare you'll probably be fine. And if you do then I wish you the best.

I’m also wondering how it would play out in the US. So far almost every place with rampant corona has also been areas with EXTREMELY bad air quality and/or rampant pollution (China, South Korea, Iran, Italy), even London has toxic
level air pollution in some days. I want to see how things play out in Seattle and other cities that aren’t famous for being toxic
before I’m going panic.
Underrated comment lmfao
(Hope it’s true)
It's also unfair for naturally attractive people because they are now expected to just naturally match up with people who are able to afford altering their face
We're already seeing this with face, noses, boobs, jaws, butts, lips, etc. Unless you've had them altered it's probably not enough even though back in the day people with these features would be considered attractive. The "unattractive women shilled as attractive" proves this
Why? You didn't have to pay for those. You just got that face out of luck.>>520596
People with plastic surgery are still mocked nowadays. Naturally pretty people aren't victims
lmao, enjoy your privilege and go
I hope people stop caring about their faces and start thinking again. That’d be great. Education is on a decline.>>520596
Or “attractive” people can stop being shallow and date people less attractive than them. Hot people can date ugly people

The crackdown on porn has happened in the US already in Alabama I think. If anything I see officials denouncing it to the public as a health crisis (Rise in erectile dysfunction and thr cost of viagra gets too high) but those same officials will use it in private. I e seen alot of guys admit that they don't care if the actress in porn is a trafficked victim
so I think the pushback from the public and Mindgeek would be tremendous and apathetic.

Re all of the predictions for a resurgence of 90's fashion and culture, this could result from / be concurrent with a return to second wave feminism and rejection of snowflakeism.

- i definitely agree with the resurgence of disco-type music, especially with city-pop becoming more and more popular. even mainstream western music like harry styles are embracing more of a "disco" feel to the music. i also see a resurgence for country music as well, especially with the rise of lil nas x and orville peck, potentially leading to country music becoming more and more associated with progressive ideals as opposed to conservative.
- definitely agree on more americans moving to europe and other countries. every one my age has expressed a sentiment of "get me out of here" for at least have a decade now. >>495900
seems to be accurate from the US side
- more anti-chinese sentiment and possibly international conflict
- as the current generation gets older and boomers die out, less of a focus on traditionalism, consumerism, etc. thankfully this also means more computer and technological literacy, more online self awareness (hopefully), and less of a need for telephone customer service as opposed to online.
- this will also affect influencers, specifically instathots, as more and more people shift towards paying for experiences rather than paying for skinny tea when some thot on instagram is clearly trying to sell a product to them
- job culture will shift to being less outwardly evil capitalist, more friendly to nomad lifestyles and working from home. less people will focus on getting a 9-5 as work as a whole slows in our societies, and will focus more on freelance work or figuring things out as they go.
- more restrictions on advertising through social media, specifically towards children. more restrictions and control over platforms like YouTube and Facebook.
- more research into gender and sex, trans identity, sexuality, etc. as science researches these topics more (and has more of a data pool to look at with trans people doing HRT). a resurgence of information or an enlightenment worldwide surrounding these scientific advancements and findings.
- more of a focus on platonic relationships and romanticizing loving yourself/friends rather than strictly romantic relationships
- hopefully the fall of disney and massive monopolies, as well as the fall of zuck
- the US finally starts looking to decent methods of public transportation (i'm looking at you, midwest) and hopefully gets a high speed rail
- obesity rate will drop due to a resurgence in more environmentalist ideals (minimalism, clean eating, zero waste) which relates to better diet and just eating real food
It's going to be way worse than that, it already is.

Plague OP here.
I think i got my wish and its super monkey's paw-ish, my country is going to shit due Corona, government ain't doing shit, we might not even get the vaccine due to politics.
And yet, since my parents own an essential business we are doing pretty well financially, im buying an state of the art computer computer for college work next week, my family is also looking into buying property in italy after all this shit is over since it seems like the prices will be pretty steep, we never had this much money before.
Oh yeah no problem, im brazilian and my parents work in the food industry, they source stock to supermarkets.
Basically at the start of the year I was just month-by-month middle class and now we are upper middle class, its fucking wild.
We also ended up in a better financial situation during swine flu when i was a kid, lots of toys on christmas lol.
My dad has very bad spending habits and struggles with addiction tho, so i doubt it will last.
Yeah, for instance the child labor cobalt mines in Congo are partially China's fault– most of the companies buying the raw ore from child laborers there are Chinese. Those Chinese companies also bribe local law enforcement to look the other way on labor violations.
China is taking advantage of Africa just as much as the U.S. or the U.K., if not moreso. The situation in Africa is not going to improve until other countries stop exploiting it's fragile new democracies.

What will happen to Scotland, Ireland and Wales after Brexit?
Scotland and Wales? Nothing. Wales voted for Brexit, and Scotland can't have another independence referendum unless one is granted by the UK government, who have already said they won't grant another so soon.
As for Northern Ireland, that's a big question nobody knows the answer to. Ireland is still part of the EU, so with Northern Ireland leaving the EU along with the UK that means there could be border issues.

I think there will a renaissance of Arcades in few years. VR Technology is advancing fast and full immersion or at least partial immersion will be possible in a few years. but MUCH to expensive for the end consumer. so we will likely first see it in basically VR Arcades. that would have already started with specifically build areas and mobile headsets that enable you to really move and manipulate the environment.
VR arcades aren't going to be a thing during covid unless you have people willing to risk it even after a thorough wipedown of equipment

and with the most recent news about her I feel really bad about what I wrote, even when I imagined the situation much different tbh.
I wouldn't feel bad. I've seen some pretty gross shit said about her 'since' the diagnosis. Vulgar comments about her heavy bleeding episode, jokes about her 'lol cancer-vag'
Any post I've seen on here is tame.
Agreed. Alienation between genders is going to increase and rates of heterosexual relationships and marriage will continue to decline. More people will be living with their friends.
Media and products with better advertising for middle-aged and older women are going to increase since there’s a lot of money there that they’re not tapping into yet.
Japan rising up?
Nice joke there!what lala land are you living?
A rise up? Really?
A more realistic expectation is that the majority of the younger generation will continue to become more and more westernized, major politicians will decry this, and minor politicians will fight back by writing sassy sjw-tier tweets. Everyone continues to just go with the flow and Japan is forced to accept more foreign workers when throwing more money at the birthrate problem doesn’t work. People producing long-time cultural projects will continue to die with no one to pass on knowledge too, and feelings of national pride will only have short spikes during natural disasters. Fringe nationalist groups will stay fringe because normie Japanese young people know absolutely nothing about politics in their own country, let alone other countries, and will not even glance in the direction of people like that.
it said "nationalism in japan will rise" not "japan will rise up"
anyways the first part was more interesting but imageboard users always care more about japan.

The Queen will die.
oh man I really hope you all are right about more people unplugging.
I think there will be polarization of people's health levels, in a way. A group who is noticeably doing good, the other in denial and in a bad state. Ive already noticed people online and that i know, becoming aware of how unhealthy various things are after all: social media, advertising(it sucks how it's spreading its tentacles but in the long term this is good, it could push people to abstain from materialism by getting fed up), online enabling mental illness/bad coping, heck even transitioning*. I do see these being discussed (the last one more in private). However, people can cling to anything so I think there will be a divide between those who come to their senses and the rest. This would be interesting (and sad) since the one side will get healthier, while the other gets bitter and higher rate of suicides& general low success. Maybe the health/happiness of the first will help bring people over to the light. or theyll just continue to hate them for being normies lol idk, we kind of do have this already.
*Among troons i know, in private they are surprisingly willing to admit their fears, criticisms of the movement, the problems of gender roles, question of regret. More than I thought are surprisingly open (but not enough of the way yet lol). However that is mostly ftms and I think there may be a gender divide if this grows. A lot of ftms detransitioning, and probably (hopefully) enough mtfs since men have more influence/taken seriously, so it can be a smaller amount. To lead to a backlash against the trend. I think pornsickness can last til death and men have the power to get what they want(access to womens spaces etc) so I dont see those mtfs ever going back, which may be a problem. Their life quality would be decent as mtfs, while its still not much for ftms. Yet if ftms spend too much time online away from reality or are too far gone (surgery etc) they'll choose not to hear the music either.
I think something has to boil over, and it will, for open critique of trans stuff in the community to be allowed. Right now the people who have doubts keep it silent out of fear, but they exist and are growing methinks. It will probably be the 1000th instance of a transwoman doing some disgusting shit, that goes viral enough, which will unleash the flood of dialogue lol thats my prediction
could get very ugly though if theres a divide between ftms mtfs opinions. they already barely associate
I don't think people will completely stop being weebs, there's just going to be less of them because Japanese pop culture fans are going to act more and more like normal people with a hobby and not obsessed weirdos. I mean, I know a shit ton of people who are what I'm gonna call americaboos despite shitting all over the USA because of politics, social problems and news all the time, but they're still obsessed with Hollywood, American reality shows and its pop culture as a whole.
>>trannies won't go away til the '30s
With how things are currently I feel like it could happen in the mid 20s, let's be positive for once.
>A new ''natural beauty'' movement surges that promotes being natural, with no photoshop, makeup or plastic surgery in response to the plastic thot trend.
Never going to happen, the beauty industry is too much of a juggernaut, "natural not natural" beauty like brands like glossier and milk make up has been a trendy thing for years now, and already on their decline for neon bright make up.
>Cancer becoming prevalent in young people
I've actually noticed i basically don't know anyone who had cancer before their 30s, except one little girl i went to pre-school with when were 5, but she was already cure and in recovery by then.
>A new mental illness will be recognized and it will be tied to anime/weebness
Nah, those gross cumbrains weebs are just narcs, histrionic or bpdfags, they just don't go to a good therapist that can tell it to their face.
I know full well there's groups of people that would not accept me for who I am, or places where I couldn't even go looking the way I do without probably getting murdered. I just don't go there, I just don't associate with those people in any way.
Bible thumpers probably wouldn't agree with my way of life but I would never in my right mind try to invade their spaces and rub it in their face and then ask them to accept me. I don't get it, why? Just why? There's enough space on this planet for all of us, we don't need to all accept each other. It worked before the internet age and there was less hatred and conflict in every conversation and popular media topic because people weren't constantly exposed to groups they hate and don't get along with.

Countries that can't manage around it will ruin their economies. Face masks will become mandatory (and perhaps permanent) for a long time.>A fashion counterculture will emerge, which isn't copying off of goth or punk or emo etc. Its community will be more rebellious than gen z's current one.>A few types of food will become rarer and more expensive, like chocolate.>Influx of climate refugees.>Inevitably, people vulnerable to Covid-19 will be left behind by society.
Everything is getting so oversaturated. There is too much of everything, everywhere, and it's really easy to get a hold of. I feel so disconnected to media.

Africa will be the next front for the US Military
This isn't any sort of speculation but rather a matter of facts, With ISIS in Iraq and Syria losing all territory, Trump has proposed pulling most troops out except a few to prevent ISIS from gaining control of oilfields. Afghanistan, as long as the Taliban could keep their word on keeping AQ out, Pakistan can also take over the US's role, It seems like the US will eventually pull out. As the Middle East gets new leaders like Erdogan and MBS, anti-US jihadism seems to die down to favor nationalism. Iran mainly stands in the US's interests however, due to Covid and a relatively weak military it is very difficult to make gains on a Sunni dominated Middle East.
However, Africa is different. It is getting more attention as we hear about Sudan, Nigeria and Mali. A lot of Africans don't enjoy the same oil wealth as the Arabs. African Regions since 2017 have been increasingly plagued by Jihadism, I'm sure people here remember the kidnapped Nigerian girls by Boko Haram well things have actually gotten worse since then.
This may be the opportunity the US seeks to gain against China. To use its power as security guarantor to build alliances there. The fear also being Jihadists or the Chinese controlling

>Muslims in the west will become more secularized and more muslim women will take off their hijabs
I want to say that's also already the case in Europe, at least in countries where there are diaspora since a few generations ago. Normie Muslims just practice their religion in private or they're the type who just avoid eating pork and try to eat halal meat when possible where I am.
