Gen Z most conservative gen since the 40s

http://www.marcomm.news/gen-z-is-the-most-conservative-generation-since-those-born-before-1945/

I reported on the Gen Y conservative swing, especially the women.
Not surprising in light of the fact the Left is importing and siding with their rapists.

happy flanders

However, now the data on Gen Z is coming in and I said they’d be more extreme and splintered.

This aims to be a neat summary. Neat explanations are frequently superior.

Oh, this is gonna be fun. I can have fun with this.

When you grow up, you stop believing in fairytales. Certainly, you don’t write yourself in as the Hero. Modern culture is infantile, many adults are more akin to children in maturity. The bubble about the Real World is the reason most of us are here. On Best Post I addressed this.

Ah. Can you hear Orwell laughing?

You can ignore me, but I’m not going away.
Neither are the ideas.

However, many of us have the uncanny experience of believing we are meeting a fellow adult only to hear as preposterous a belief as writing to Santa or hunting for the Easter Bunny. It’s hard to keep a straight face.

“I’m gonna change the world.”

laughing rdj crack up

“I’m gonna save the (animals)/(people)/(plants).”

At times like this, it's best to just run with it and laugh

“I’ll be such as awesome person when my dreams come true.” (Usually lottery)

snort lol laugh haha hmph derision yeah duh really uhuh mhmm princess bride

“I work so hard and I deserve this” (They work 20 hours in full a week, tops)

david tennant 10 lol laughing cracking up

“I don’t know why it happened, I did everything right.” (Where is the logic here)

crying laughter lmao

“They wouldn’t lie to me………………………………….”

dean winchester supernatural evil smirk lol laughing amused

“I don’t need a plan, it’s destiny, I know it.”

fake smile laughing wait what wut eh huh be normal dexter

“I’m passionate, all you need is passion” (2 mins later) “My life is so empty.”

Lestat laughter lol lmao haha IWTV film

They don’t hear themselves. They think aloud. The cognitive dissonance is apparent but if you draw their attention to it, it washes over them like a wave breaking over a sandcastle. They think they’re deep because they’re oversensitive and over-expressive (coining it) but really they’re deep as a paddling pool.

My favourites

“I’m a fucking Princess and I will get my Prince”

What to do when the "intellectuals" hit reality like a brick wall? Laugh, I guess

“I need (thing), (thing), (other thing) and (stuff) before I can be happy/human.”

This aims to be a neat summary. Neat explanations are frequently superior.

These people will never, ever be happy. Contented. Comfortable. Secure.

Their lives will always lack meaning. Don’t pity them, it’s terminal stupidity.

You know what they really want? Glory. They want the whole world to bow down in gratitude for how epic and awesome and totes magical they are, Just the Way They Are. They can’t be reasoned with, get out their way and possibly profit on their little crusade, as you fairly warn them not to do it. Play Devil.

you're fucked lol tilda constantine gabriel

These are the people who would have you shot for disagreeing with them. No quarter. No mercy. No option.

Almost all societies in the past had a complex bucket of metrics involving personal virtue, material success, and success of the family – with “impact on the state of the world” being an also-ran at best.

Between the 19th and 20th centuries, self-improvement switched from character, what you DO, to a model of personality, what you ARE. There’s your problem. The ___ of Personality.

Despite being their stated Life’s Purpose, they haven’t thought about Saving the World for five minutes straight. Know why?

“Saving it from who, exactly?”

The bad guys, presumably.

“What are you going to do with them?”

#~*sound of tumbleweed*~#

err what wut wtf scared rdj

That’s right, the fastest means to accomplish that goal is unpleasant, the fastest way to save the world (but not all humanity), involves mass murder. And that’s how history was made. Dictators and all. ‘Saving the World’ isn’t fun, kids. The question shouldn’t be Can I? The question should be Why would I?
