    2000, 2001, and 2002 was still the 90s. After 2003, it went downhill.

      2000, 2001 and 2002 are only similar to 1999 and 1998, that's it. If "downhill" refers to people in society becoming rude and corrupt, boys playing online video games too mature for their age and girls dressing inappropriately for their age things were probably fine until about 2008.

        Video games started the real "8th generation" after PlayStation 1.

          The year 2000 I think had a psychological effect on many people either through their own doing or the media brainwashing them into believing things are different now. Remember Y2K and all the talk about blackouts and other disasters that were said to happen? With all the hype I bet people were thinking that there may be riots and chaos in the world as everything would stop functioning. People started stockpiling food, mostly canned foods. Even my mother bought into that nonsense. Personally the year 2000 marked a time in my life when I was in middle school and transitioning into high school so it was a tough time for me but I think that many negative things from my childhood were emerging at that time. I felt that I could no longer be a kid and that somehow I had to transform into something different and had to be serious now.

            When I was in 3rd or 4th grade a substitute teacher taught us about that.
