Want to know what amazes me? Millennials have EVERYTHING at their fingertips. We can Google anything and have the answer right in front of us in seconds, yet we’ve also been dubbed the low-information generation.
Technology has actually screwed us over. We thrive on instant gratification. Generally speaking, if we can’t figure something out in four seconds, we quit and move on to something else. MSM knows that and has catered to us accordingly.
I’m convinced the majority of millennials are only liberals by default. If they really sat down and listened to the other side, I think they’d quickly find that they actually agree with the principles of conservatism.
Small government. More freedom.
It’s cool, guys. F’real. We need to reestablish conservatism as “being cool.” You can be a millennial and laugh at stupid memes and take quizzes about what kind of pizza you are and drink a latte out of a freaking avocado and still be a conservative. THAT’S the message I want to get across.
But back to the low-fo problem.
According to a Democratic pollster, 57% of millennials don’t know much about Roe v Wade. In fact, a bunch of them think that Roe v Wade happened after the American Revolution.
“Millennials think that Roe v. Wade happened right after the American Revolution,” Celinda Lake, president of Lake Research, said on a Friday episode of “What America’s Thinking,” Hill.TV’s new show about polling and public opinion.
“They have no idea that there was ever a time when abortions were illegal. They certainly don’t want to go back to those times,” Lake said.
A 2013 Pew Research Center study found that 57 percent of polled adults aged 18 to 29 did not know that the 1973 case dealt with abortion.
They didn’t even know it had to do with abortion OMG. This is BASIC STUFF, people.
Who do we blame? Schools? Parents? Or millennials for failing to take it upon themselves to do a little bit of research every now and then?
