History by the Decades Quiz: The 2000s
After the general stability of the 1990s, many nations seemed to be on the path toward building a better tomorrow. Economic growth and humanitarian progress were hallmarks of the 90s that happened to be punctuated by sudden and dramatic tragedies.
Much of that optimistic hope for the future was challenged by the opening years of the new millennium. Massive tragedies and abuses of power threatened to engulf the world in a new era of chaos.
Here in the 2020s, we are still contending with much of the madness that defined the early 2000s. Still, this time period was not without its shining lights. Many of the progressive movements of the past decade were continuing to gain steam in the early 2000s. This led to some truly ground-breaking improvements in civilization during this period.

Unseen opponents struck a costly blow against America trying to send a message of hate across the free world. Rallying back from this tragedy took a large amount of effort from the U.S.A. for the rest of the early 2000s.
Outside of America, several other nations were trying to bring order to growing violent sects found throughout the world.
