2012 Shift

Anon who posted this the other day, I didn't have time to respond and the thread was archived by the time I was free. But yes, everything had changed after 2012. Like a slow burn, the world was on a downward spiral. People changed, the vibe of life had changed and gone were the upbeat "party" vibes of the late 2000's and first couple years of the 2010's. Just look to how music was back then, a lot of it was about feeling good and having fun then around 2013 and on most of the content from bands just got dark and depressive. That whole "sadboi" meme comes to mind. I miss the old day's, thing's were brighter, more cheery and people were just cooler and easier to get along with. Not as negative as they are now. I honestly think the last bit of the 00's and 2010-2013 was the last death rattles of the 90s/old world. But the energy changed, I recall 2013 being a trying time for a lot of friends in my life, massive life struggles hit us all in different ways.
What about you guy's? And I hope the anon who posted the first thread sees this, would like to hear what he has to say too.

    vast majority of current 4chins users were too young to be cognizant of anything in 2012. Sorry oldgay, the future is now. 2020 is the zoomer paradigm shift.

        Yeah i get that same feeling. Though, everyone i know is online a lot too. I think zoomer culture has fully taken over the world wide web.
        I miss the old net, was much more fun back then. Had more soul to it.

          Now we are just in the clown world timeline filled with whiney Zoomers and their illiterate meme speak.

            this indeed! the net got too corporate and sterilized after the early 2010's. Kinda began seeing it happen at the start of the decade and by the mid 2010's everything became what it is today.

        It is what it is, at least it opened up this small window to get a lot of them the frick away from legacy media. and love him or hate him, Boomer Trump did the heavy lifting through that window.
        zooms fit well enough here

      Kek, fair enough. Zoomers are a little weird but they iight most of the time. Worked with a bunch at an old job and they all seemed to know whats going on in the world to a degred.

      at the time I would have disagreed, but in hindsight I can kinda see how the early teens were kinda like the 90’s in terms of positivity (we had a lot of hype around Obama and hope and change and shiet)

      PARTY ROCKAZ IN THE HOUSE TONIGHT
      EVERBODY GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME

      I think the 90’s really ended on 9/11, then we had the 2001-2007 period, iphone comes out and we have mini-decade 2008-2012 tumblr indie music era new age revival, then we have 2013-2017 ISIS and refugee crisis and Ukraine era, Trayvon Martin era, kinda like the transition period between 2012 and post 2017, with 2015+ being the Trump era, and 2020+ being the WEF live in ze pod era beginnings

      sorry if that was confusing to read

      Wasn't confusing at all anon. And i agree, 90s were done after 911, but there was still a bit of the "good spirits/vibes" going around, even though thing's were a bit fugged. That's what i meant by the last death rattles. What was left of that vibe died after 2012. Ngl, was hoping obama was gonna open the lid on everything, but he turned out to be another devil worshipping loser on puppet strings. I really wanted Ron Paul as pres back then. Obongo was second choice. Was early into the redpills around that time, didn't know how deep the corruption was.

      But it was odd to say the least, after 2012 thing's changed big time, as mentioned it seemed like mostly everyone i knew was in some hard times, drugs, family issues and so on. Although, i do recall a similar vibe change back in 1998 too, kinda like after 2012. The energy just felt off a bit.

      It's not in your head, there really has been a societal shift for the worse, and data backs this up. Zoomers are having less sex, dating less, and socializing less. Rates of depression are up by a lot, which has lead to a corresponding increase in suicide rates.

      It's not a coincidence that this started happening just as the iPhone and its competitors started gaining traction - handheld, easy to use computers in the palm of everyone's hands that could access the internet quickly. Sure, the prior Razors and other brick phones had us connected, but not the level our current smartphones do.

      Humans were not designed for the constant stimulation and on-demand dopamine rushes that modern technology can give us. The ability to get pleasure whenever we want it, wherever, has numbed and desensitized us. On top of that social media tends towards being toxic.

    You can trace the angry doom vibe back to the birth of rock and metal. The whole WW, which we are still in, was an error. Babylon has enslaved Rome again with its temptations.

      The grunge and satanic shit took off in the 90's. It somehow got normalized that Mudvane and Metallica are normal bands, but it was just foot-in-the-door satanism just like hardcore rap music. The Goth scene became more mainstream (Evaneceance). I used to listen to Goth metal and I'm like thinking now how all this stuff is entry-level satanism. I mean it's not like you're not going to do drugs or drink if you're into this stuff. Can you imagine a prude listening to this kind of music? Everything is about drugs and booze.

        I was/am straight edge heavy metal (40), I liked pantera, ozzy, metallica, nin, the usuals okay - but I could see how their substance abuse was ruining their music and I listened to it because I saw it all around me but I get tired of the lyrics. Its doorway satanism because it's very hard to be spiritual when you're poisoned and angry. In Flames has very much been my soundtrack to escape for 25yrs. I really love Rotting Christ, Lamb of God, Killswitch. I don't know how I missed Scar Symmetry and Soilwork for so long. Clean metal is bland, psychedelic metal is raw fire and Enochian inspiration.

    I pretty much agree with your assessment of the timeline. For me though, I still count 2013 as a good year despite some troubles and 2014 was clearly darker. But up until 2012 everything was sweet for a few years.

      OP here, agreed. 2013 was alright, but thing's started to change, 2014 was my last really cozy year. Once again, thing's were changing and not 100% for the better, but felt more like a season of growing pains for the world at that time. Still had hope for the future. By the end of 2015 is when everything turned pretty bleak and it was apparent we were on a express elevator to hell. Trump alleviated that blackpill for a time, but just from what I've noticed, I don't think that good energy is coming back and everything is going to fall apart. They'll get their NWO in end, through one faction or another. Sorry to blackpill a bit, but just looking like that's hand we've got atm.

    it's so strange to be able to trace back exactly how we got to this point, having graduated high school in 2013 and watched as the internet/social media went from this sort of niche thing for most of my childhood to functionally fixing the results of the 2016 US election. i feel like, as someone who has generally been repulsed by both liberal identity politics and conservative reactionaries with equally braindead takes, it has been easier to pick apart how we got here.

    while i'm inclined to blame CERN, i also feel like the real answer is just that the human brain was never designed to be exposed to this many asinine opinions and dubious information and most people are simply too fricking dumb to understand that neither "side" gives a shit about us, and so they resort to tribalism. "your opinions are bad, mine are righteous, here is why you don't deserve rights" coming from both sides really only has one outcome and that's complete division and subsequent chaos and inability to unite or rebel.

      its hard remaining lucid all this time.

      i really dont think there is any great evil force, just nightmares in the confusion, and all the imagined dark forces are just flailing reflections in a dark dirty mirror. if you can polish your vision enough, you see the patterns in the fragments are just your own shadows.

      you are completely alone here, but here is where we can all be together exactly how we dream after we sort ourselves out.

    I'm sure the 2008 crash had something to do with it.
    The government and banks couldn't be trusted. Money - the great unifier of the people (because we were becoming godless) was not to be trusted. We needed social change but that warped into every one with priviledge is bad and the suffer Olympics started. Remember occupy wall street and those 99% banners? Being in the above average percentile on the bell curve for anything ment you needed resources taken away from you for redistribution.
    Add on social media speeding up our consumption of ideas rapidly.
    Instead of 18+ year olds learning about queer theory at Uni (which requires reading of materials and cross examination *was* at least encouraged) suddenly 12 year olds were learning about it from 5 minute feminist frequency videos and taking it as fact. Humans love novelty and what's more socially novel then Queerness? Suddenly all of these teens identy as 'bi' even though they would never date same sex. Because the novelty of being 'bi' wore off suddenly we got the ace/a romantics and demi sexuals, then the trans then the NBs. Then it was medicalised and its medicalisation was shown on a mass scale in a positive light. Ie Jazz Jennings.
    We've always had freak culture, but it's never been celebrated like this.
    Because of our human need for novelty and our Compassion we went from making fun of freaks to supporting them, finding them inspiring like patron saints. There is now little differentiation for supporting freaks who happen to be different but still have good moral character (ie the disabled) to supporting freaks who are morally different (ie trans thrushes with BBls and queer children). 'Truly' is a YouTube channel that exemplifies this issue of freaks by choice and toxic positivity. We live in a culture that glorifies vapid narcissism.

    I fell into alcoholism right in 2012, it wasn't even alcoholism really, it's just that I wanted to turn Goth and see if I can make alcohol work, and to see if there's an edgy version of spirituality. The left hand path or whatever. It never worked out too good, not good at all. You really can't serve two masters.

    Ok, do you remember the vaporwave explosion and Yung Lean? YL basically coined the term Sadboys for his fans. It was supposed to be a new kind of rap. I still think that was the best thing that ever hit the internet in terms of music. Yung Lean inspired a bunch of people, including Ecco2k and Thaiboy Digital. Look him up and almost any of the Year0001 label artists.

      Yeah, I am a avid vaporwave enjoyer, just used that term as a blanket statement of sorts. Vaporwave is all I really even listen to anymore. Everything pretty much sucks now. Aside from some of the old bands prior to 2015.

      The grunge and satanic shit took off in the 90's. It somehow got normalized that Mudvane and Metallica are normal bands, but it was just foot-in-the-door satanism just like hardcore rap music. The Goth scene became more mainstream (Evaneceance). I used to listen to Goth metal and I'm like thinking now how all this stuff is entry-level satanism. I mean it's not like you're not going to do drugs or drink if you're into this stuff. Can you imagine a prude listening to this kind of music? Everything is about drugs and booze.

      This is true, it's all satanic at the core. I used to listen to a lot "extreme metal" genres back then, but it was all gay edgelord stuff lyrically. Got more into hardcore, at least you could relate to the lyrics with that stuff. But even that has been pozzed now from losers trying to inject politics into everything they touch.
