Despite warnings, progressives methodically destroyed a generation of young American minds

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/368753.php

Read the whole thing, and the linked studies.

Ex
A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.”
That such disorders appear to be an acute problem with this generation may be an unintended outcome of the unprecedented experiment conducted in the 1990s and 2000s by progressive parents.

In 2014, a survey of 100,000 college students at 53 U.S. campuses by the American College Health Association found that 84% of U.S. students feel unable to cope, while more than half experience overwhelming anxiety.

the information from fake news is to blame

EX:

Quote:

A YMCA in Scranton, Pa. has banned mainstream media television channels from playing in the facility due to concern for the physical and emotional safety of its members.

The Greater Scranton YMCA's board of directors sent a letter to its members regarding the facility's new politics-free zone policy.

Mainstream media channels such as CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News are now banned from the facility due to "raised concerns about the safety, both physically and emotionally" of the members.

"Members said the ban came after some political discussions in the locker room turned contentious," the New York Post reported on Monday.

From the above quote it looks like dewy saying people disagreeing on a forum would not happen on the street.  Well the what happened at that gym in Pennsylvania, the conversation "turned contentious".  No schitt Sherlock, Pennsylvanians 'woke' up and voted to take their country back from the SJWs

Here's a great discussion in the wake of what happened at Middlebury College on how we got here - https://charlierose.com/videos/30146. "Haidt and Bruni analyzed the many causes of the rising illiberalism college campuses, which makes many students and professors reluctant to voice dissenting opinions." They connect various dots, including helicopter parents, social media and liberal intolerance.

Interesting tidbits:
- Professor that was injured by protesters was there to debate the guest speaker, Charles Murray.
- Murray's latest book, Coming Apart, isn't really controversial - more on par with widely-accepted Hillbilly Elegy.

Professor Jonathan Haidt started http://heterodoxacademy.org/ because he saw a growing problem in academia that threatens its intellectual integrity - "When nearly everyone in a field shares the same political orientation, certain ideas become orthodoxy, dissent is discouraged, and errors can go unchallenged."

Sorry, but there are a million reasons for this, amongst them access to anything all the time via the internet.

I know several conservative parents whose kids suffered from depression.  I don't know why it is, but they are not hippie parents.

There is these 2 younger couples in our neighborhood that walk together.  They got a couple kids each.  About 3 weeks ago, one of the women show up with hat shown below.  A couple of days later her husband is wearing one.  Then a few days later the other couple.  Now all the kids have one. 

They call them pus5yhats.  Who the f' would wear a pus5yhat?

Wow, some real deep analysis here. Perhaps I should find some studies on the low intelligence levels of rural conservatives. I'll bet it wouldn't take me long--and they'd be far more legitimate than some of the nonsense here.

By all means. Always interesting to read studies on the abysmal failure of the public school system in America, along with your real deep analysis of same.

Rural conservatives are typically people that work hard everyday, own real property, and businesses, and pay taxes. You don't own those things if you are unintelligent. I am one of many, many rural people I know that run small enterprises. I live in the country, and I own two C Corps Kazoo. How many do you own? How many people do you employ? How intelligent are you drive by?

You know nothing, and are better suited to eating bandwidth and scones at a Starbucks than telling me what I should feel. Arrogant Pissants.

Woman - get back in the kitchen!

ps - Kazoo - I would be more than happy to compare the rankings of my alma mater with yours.  Please post yours - we'll see where it goes.

pps - I'll also gladly compare your economic output to woody's or any other conservative's here.

I suggest you go the Obamacare Revisited thread and see if you can keep up there.  I have no doubt you'll quickly be overwhelmed by that deep analysis.

OU players were chanting the Tennessee pitcher's name in the late innings. If that was the case, as I said before, 
it is totally bush and shouldn't be allowed. I played major-college baseball: a bit of generic jawing is expected, but heckling
opposing players by name is crossing a line, and that is doubly true if a group of players are doing it. Just go play. 


Seems Kazoo is in fact a man and played major-college baseball.  And that he also complains about grown women getting their feelings hurt.

We could ask ole kazoo a few questions to help us deduce if he is indeed a millennial.  Like:

Do you believe it is better if everyone at a softball game gets a ribbon?
