Young, Dumb and Broke: Millennials and the Curse of Not Thinking

If there was ever an anthem for youth culture these days, it would have to be Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke.” I don’t mean that as an unjust attack as much as a pointed observation of reality.

I’m far from the first to express concern over the lack of critical thinking so prevalent among Millennials and Gen-Z. The moral and intellectual cesspools of the modern American university system have decimated not just their capability to think, but their desire. Movements and crusades that build there are predicated entirely upon vapid sloganeering, hashtags, and chants, leaving behind any appeal to rational or logical evidence.
