It's because every single #ing milksop millennial thinks they know how to "fix the system" without any idea of the immeasurable complexities of even 1 ten-thousands of the system. And the reason they think that is because they are taught mindless activism as the solution to problems instead of actual troubleshooting, analysis and understanding. Your engine eating up the oil for some reason? A mechanic with this mindset would throw the whole thing away and tell you "well, your old engine is no good, you see. Engines should get 200 miles to the gallon at 500 KW and have pure water as the only emission. Please join our march for better engines, we shouldn't have to settle for the old systems"
