The second decade of the 21st century, lasting between 2010 and 2019.

There were certainly a lot of problems with this era (specifically its latter half), particularly regarding political divisiveness and the oversaturation of "pop politics" in general. However, while these issues could rarely be totally avoided, at the end of the day they were easy to distract yourself from if you prioritized living your life.

By contrast, the 2020s thus far have been characterized by a global pandemic and its effects on our lives. Unlike the issues found in the 2010s, these ones are nearly impossible to avoid due to the fact that most of the resources we utilized in the 2010s to live our lives either ended temporarily or permanently, or became associated with danger and recklessness.

While the 2010s were a highly imperfect decade, they were very liveable and generally had more positives than negatives, especially compared with the 2020s so far. As such, the 2010s will for a long time be seen as the last decade of comfort and normalcy.
Back in the 2010s I could go to restaurants, events, etc. to make myself feel better if life got too overwhelming. In 2020 most of these resources didn't exist, and even now they are less accessible and less associated with relaxation than they were in the 2010s.

The decade that we currently live in, hasn't found it's identity yet but is looking to be the 90s 3.0 as the 2000s just seemed like a more commercial 90s with cool technology.

The 2010s is the 2nd decade of the 21st century, and will be the decade when gen y will probably find their place, and gen z will rise, while gen y has kids that will be the generation after z that no one can quite name. Baby Boomers will start to reach retirement age this decade which will probably put a massive strain on social services, and gen x will reach a more prominent political position in the world.

The economy may get worse, and we are working towards green energy and actual worrying about the health of our citizens so this decade will probably be more realistic about the health craze instead on the 2000s where it was all Atkins diets and such.

TV will probably get better as scripted shows are making a comeback, and reality is losing popularity. Cartoons also seem to be making a turn for better with things like Adventure Time and Beavis and Butthead slated to return in 2011 with new episodes. Music seems to be moving in the direction of electronic taking hip-hop's and modern rock's place pretty quickly and becoming more popular. Hip-Hop seems to be waining, and emo is dead/dying and scene is also. Indie rock also seems to be rising as a new trend.
The 2010s could go either way, I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worse.
