What 2000-2010 should be remembered as....... The decade from 2000-2010 should be remembered as the decade of hysteria. It's been on massive public hysteria after another. First there was Y2K, then the BS government terror alerts of 2002-2003 (anyone remember the fiasco with duct tape and plastic sheeting?), anti-vaxx nonsense, anti-genetic engineering, LHC going to blow up the world predictions (at least one person actually committed suicide because of this a couple years ago), and now the current hysterics on deck are 2012, the anti-vaxx nonsense (still), and the anti-GM scare mongering. None of these predictions/fears ever panned out, not one. You'd think we'd learn, but so many of us still haven't. Truely a sad start to the 21st century, let's do better.
