The point im trying to make is that given the luxuries we have been afforded in regards to our access to information the majority of the younger
generation are not using it to educate themselves but to entertain only. They look upon knowledge as uncool and laugh at intelligence preferring
ignorance and even lauding it. If you choose not to believe this thats your choice im just telling you what i see on the streets.
The point I am trying to make is that every generation has been rife with individuals guilty of this same thing. Your generation may want to let
themselves off the hook and pretend that in general they were more concerned with education and understanding truth than they were entertainment, but
it is a delusional pretense.
It is previous generations that are responsible for the U.S. national debt, not the present younger generation. It is previous generations
responsible for the entrenchment of credentialism, not the younger generation. It is previous generations responsible for the steady erosion of
protection for unalienable rights not the current younger generation.
When, in 1917, Woodrow Wilson declared that the U.S. must make the "world safe for democracy", very few at that time had the temerity or even the
cognition to stand up and challenge this assertion and point out that the U.S. is a republic with a Constitution that is remarkably more
anti-democratic than is democratic. However, by 1917 more than three years had passed since the adoption of the 17th Amendment, an Amendment that is
arguably unconstitutional, yet to the best of my knowledge this Amendment has not ever even been challenged. With such acquiescence to usurpation it
is no wonder that Wilson felt emboldened enough to make his dubious declaration.
Too many people were stupid at the turn of the 19th Century into the 20th, too many people were stupid when Wilson declared we must make the world
safe for democracy, and too many people were stupid each subsequent generation and now here we are. This is what I am saying. Feel free to blame
this all on the younger generations of today, but blame is wholly irrelevant even if they were to blame.
