‘The Dumbest Generation’ Grows Even Dumber

In 2008, Mark Bauerlein wrote “The Dumbest Generation, How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future.” Judging by events in the intervening dozen years (and especially in recent months), it appears that Bauerlein’s assessment was premature and perhaps even too kind.

Why do you think the dumb generation grow even dumber?

Here's my take on this in a few words: Beside all the distraction within the gadgetry, teachers and school boards that were already dumb created dumber education by easing every subject as a simple joke!

With adult teachers at institutions of higher learning like MIT spouting such nonsense, it is hardly surprising we have now two generations of illiterate snowflakes who cannot distinguish between Stevie Ray Vaughan and Stonewall Jackson.

So far the entire situation sounds puzzling to me, but of course it's an obligation to face the danger that spreads everywhere as the antagonising communists have done in the past starting among the very young to adulthood!

Everything is so simplified these days and still some of the youth can't learn about respecting law and order.

SHAME on them!

What is left behind education these days became a long term indoctrination drill!

In May 1956, Richard D. Heffner, American historian, broadcaster, and University Professor of Communications and Public Policy at Rutgers, began a weekly public television series called The Open Mind. Well ahead of its time, the program has welcomed hundreds of interesting and influential persons from all fields to speak freely and to share their thoughts and ideas with a broad audience.
