|Subject: ||RE: Are 20 somethings and younger shallow?|
1. news sources are at best opinions, and at worst propoganda.
Many are, a surprising number are very objective and informative
2. the older you get the more shallow you become.
older folk concentrate on their jobs, and their mortgage. they pretend to care by letting the news tell them how to think about certain issues.
I'm sure it probably seems that way from where you are on the generational divide but from where I am (40) I don't think older people pretend any more than younger people. They are however quite a bit more beaten down with "crisis" fatigue. Everything is a "crisis", everything needs fixing now. At least that's the message you get from much of the media. Decades of exposure to this type of sensationalist media simply wears you down.
But unfortunately the reality is, no one person can possibly worry about ALL the bad crap that's out there and still live their lives. It's simply too exhausting.
remember they are the ones who have the wealth and the power to change things, yet they never do anything about the world. why? because it might hurt their career.
We'll see how proactive you are when you hit 45 or so. The real world is a quite bit more sobering that you know yet.
