The Dumbest Generation Ever

Post by LoneBear » Tue Jan 15, 2019 12:49 pm

A very concise video on the problems of today's youth... based off the book, "The Dumbest Generation Ever, or, Don't Trust Anyone Under 30."
We’re seeing a society that not only has a lot more people of lower IQ, but a lot fewer people of higher IQ. In other words, a chemical dumbing down of society. Everyone is sort of mediocre; that leaves them dependent on government, because they can’t excel. We have these people of lower IQ that are totally dependent, then we have this mass of people that are going to believe anything they are told because they can’t really think clearly. And very few people of very high IQ who have good cognitive function, who can figure this all out. And that’s what they want. So you can kind of piece it together as to why they are SO insistent on spending so many hundreds of millions of dollars of propaganda money to dumb down society.


The young man speaking at the end of the video is very enlightened for someone in their 20s... I've watched this happen over the years, but he puts it very concisely:
75% of an entire generation between 18 and 24 are ineligible to join the military. 75%. Can you say the word, “pathetic?” With me? Why? Well, there is a high level of obesity; this is embarrassing. Obesity. Unfit physically. Unable to perform the most basic, military maneuvers.

Uneducated. … Wait a minute … are you going to say we’re uneducated? You can go to school and be uneducated. Isn’t that an incredible realization? That you can go through school and they can pass you because they just don’t want you lingering in the grade and they’ll keep moving you through the system and they’ll stick out practically illiterate students, all the time.

They can find “oatmeal” in the store because they can recognize the oatmeal box, NOT because they can read “oat” “meal.”

Unlearned mentally; unable to pass the most basic, academic tests of competence.

We can’t hear. You have to be able to hear, I guess, to get into the military at some level. Lost acute hearing ability due to the volume of “music.” It’s embarrassing.
We are unfit to protect our lives, to protect our marriages, to protect our families, to protect our towns, to protect our States, to protect our Nations. We are unready for battle.
So we’re the dumbest generation ever. This is the book I was referring to, it’s actually called, “The Dumbest Generation” or the other option title for it, “Or, Don’t Trust Anyone Under 30.” That’s an attitude of an entire generation. You can’t trust these guys.

Those over 30... we have definitely seen some weaknesses in the older generation, there’s no doubt about it, but I want you to know, those over 30, possibly know more than YOU do, as those of you that are under 30. You may know more about computer programming, however, they often know more about life. And we have disconnected ourselves from any knowledge fuel source that would give us an understanding of how life actually works.

Just look at this; it goes through 6 things I’ll mention here... six observations of why we are the dumbest generation, ever. How do you guys like being classified as that... isn’t that a fun title to wear? You see, I’m trying to get you mad; is what I’m trying to do. So don’t accept that title. Don’t SIT AROUND and allow that to be YOUR title! HIT IT BACK!

Knowledge deficits, the least supply of common life social and cultural knowledge of ANY generation. This is my little statement that I add to it. Disconnect them from their “devices,” and they DIE. See, as long as they have their computer, their laptop, their PDA, whatever it is—they can make it through life. They can figure out directions, they can do their research... how do they do their research? GOOGLE! That’s their “research.” And so as a result, you disconnect them their devices and stick them in a forest all by themselves, and you know, run away with the car... THEY DIE! They have NO WAY of surviving! They do not know how to live outside of “the system.”

They’re bibliophobes, which just isn’t a fear of the Bible, this is a fear of books. The highest disregard of books and reading of ANY generation. There’s my comment, “give them a book and they turn it into kindling.”

#3, “screen time.” It’s the greatest amount of time in front of a screen of any generation. You can say that previous generations didn’t even have screens. You know, I don’t know what it was, the 40s or 50s when television started coming out? And they were watching television all the time ‘cause it was such a novelty. Does not even compare to what we are doing in this generation. We are almost ALWAYS in front of a screen, whether it’s a computer screen, a television screen or a movie screen. Almost always, or a cell phone screen. Whatever it is, we are ADDICTED to the screen. And obviously, this is having some kind of effect upon us.
Don’t expect them to be involved in the rescue of THIS world, for they are completely LOST in another one.

“Online learning skills,” the least effective research skills which garner true information of any generation. Our generation does not know how to find true information. We know how to find “information”; we have the “information superhighway.” Oh Yeah! We KNOW how to find “information”--is it true? Are you able to TEST and SEE if it is true? Do you have ANY FILTER of knowing if it is true?! “Well, it’s the highest Google ranking.” Let me tell you, the highest “Google ranking” is nearly inevitably WRONG. OK? It does not necessarily mean it is right, it just means that more people are turning to it than something else. There are all sorts of top Google rankings in this world but that does not mean that they are true. The motto for information gathering—the highest Google ranking rules.

Wikipedia is the new Bible and good bloggers are the oracles of the “now.” If you can write, this generation will submit to you. Lay down their lives before you and say, “train my mind on how to think.” It does not mean you know how to live. It does not mean you have a scrap of actual, real-world intelligence. You have NOT earned a medal through your life lived, and yet, you can write and you can impress people with your phraseology, and as a result, this generation this generation will submit to you and they will follow your lead. You could be 17 years old, and not know a thing… but you can write. You can control the minds of a generation.

Betrayal of mentors is another hallmark of this generation, of these 18 to 24 year-olds. They are the most apt to disbelieve, disregard or betray teachers and mentors of any generation. Their commitments mean nothing, for they are loyal to only that that feels good to them, in the moment.

Smartphone Zombies

Post by LoneBear » Tue Jan 15, 2019 1:14 pm

Seen some of the new street signs cropping up, because smartphone users have become so oblivious to everything around them, they will walk right in to oncoming traffic and never know what hit them...

Korea...
Image

In Germany...
Image

Washington, DC... instructions have to be put ON the sidewalk since people are only looking down...
Image

London... now padding lampposts to cut down on texting injuries while walking...
Image

Of course, they still have to address pools in shopping malls...
Image

And not to mention, open dumpsters on streets...
Image

Of course, there is a more serious side to this... the 1.2 MILLION accidents that happen while people are distracted by cell phones in 2017, which included 6000+ deaths. I hear Facebook is adding a new AI feature that, if you don't check in every few hours, will automatically mark you as "deceased."

WOW ! ?? deceased.. ?? your joking right? zombies all of them.

Get this, just after New years when all the kids returned from vacationthe local principle at the high school in town all of a sudden banned cell phones in school except for one area a few minutes a day, recess I think in the commons area. He gave a speech in the auditorium with the police by his side.. The students,as you might imagine were furious..lol yelling out questions and they wanted to know why and how come. Even worse some teachers some days later just couldn't control themselves and had to be told again that the rules also applied to them... kids were complaining after catching the teachers..haha whata sad joke huh ??

Smart principal... must actually care about education and realized the damage that EMR was causing the kids.

I looked up some of the reports on cell phone bans in classrooms... interesting thing showed up. Schools in cities are removing long-standing bans on smart devices, whereas rural and suburban schools, that did not have bans, are now banning them. Interesting little flip.

And these kids will be the first to tell their elders just how much smarter than are than them... this video really brings the point home. Got one guy asking a young man about the death of President Kennedy that morning (in 2014, apparently, someone was doing a tribute to his death in 1963), but the clincher is at the end... the YOLO guy.

Solutions are already being found... you've heard of "designated drivers" for the alcohol addicted, now we've got "Seeing Eye People" for the smartphone addiction!

They can figure out directions, they can do their research... how do they do their research? GOOGLE! That’s their “research.”
I ran into this yesterday on a Facebook post regarding a strange "ringing" that has been bouncing around the Earth... if you make a non-socially acceptable scientific observation, you get, "that's nonsense... you can just Google it for yourself!" And this is now "peer review."

Extreme Phone Pinching

Post by LoneBear » Wed Jan 23, 2019 2:56 pm

I really didn't think it could get any dumber... but now, "extreme phone pinching," where you threaten your phone's life by dangling it over dangerous locations. Supposed to be some kind of thrill like skydiving or bungee jumping. Wait... better not say that, or people will be tying their phones to bungee cords!

Image

Totally ridiculous. It's bad enough that at the gym, the #1 exercise is the "two thumb phone press."

It is interesting that research made decades ago said that people needed more "free time" in order to study and advance their lives. Now that they've got it... this is what they do. Yep, "mass ascension"... can just see that coming! :lol:
