Our Young People Are The Product Of The Western World’s Dying Culture

Many look at Generation Z and wonder how things could have gone so horribly wrong, but it isn’t a mystery at all.  The truth is that the young adults of today are the product of the western world’s dying culture.  We have often been warned that the liberal elite will fundamentally transform our culture, but in reality they have already fundamentally transformed it.  They dominate education, they dominate the media, they dominate the entertainment industry, they dominate the corporate world, they dominate at all levels of government and they even dominate most of our major religious institutions.  They have imposed a culture on us that is completely foreign to the culture that was once dominant in the western world, and the consequences have been nothing short of dramatic.

TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/

Let me give you an example of what I am talking about.

Once upon a time, those living in the western world were known for their work ethic.

If you made a commitment you were expected to follow through.

And if you gave your word on something, that was considered to be as good as gold.

But now the western world is filled with young people that are extremely lazy and that will break their word at the drop of a hat.

A survey that was recently conducted in the UK demonstrates how bad things have become

Employment website Indeed surveyed 1,500 businesses and 1,500 working people in the U.K. and found that job ghosting is rife, with 75% of workers saying they’ve ignored a prospective employer in the past year.

But the youngest generation of workers are by far the worst offenders.

A whopping 93% of Gen Zers told the global recruitment platform that they’ve flaked out of an interview.

Worse still, a staggering 87% managed to charm their way through interviews, secure the job, and sign the contract, only to leave their new boss stranded on the very first day.

I was stunned when I saw those numbers.

Of course things are very similar on this side of the Atlantic.

In fact, a recent survey found that 31 percent of all hiring managers in the U.S. purposely try to avoid hiring young people that belong to Generation Z….

According to the survey, 31 percent of hiring managers say they avoid hiring Gen Zers in favor of older workers. Hiring managers claim that Gen Zers ask for too much money, act entitled, and lack communication skills during the hiring process. Likewise, among the 94 percent of hiring managers who say they have interviewed Gen Zers, 58 percent say the Gen Z candidate wasn’t dressed appropriately, 57 percent say they struggled with eye contact, and 47 percent say they asked for unreasonable compensation.

It is easy to blame Generation Z for their behavior.

But I believe that more of the blame belongs to the system that produced them.

Our system of education is supposed to be preparing our young people to face the real world, but it is failing badly.

Sadly, math scores for U.S. students just continue to fall

The most recent results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) highlight a concerning trend for U.S. students in the field of math.

In comparison to their counterparts in other industrialized nations, American students are falling behind. The rather sobering results revealed a 13-point decline for U.S. students when compared to the 2018 exam.

We live in a culture that simply does not value academic achievement, and that is especially true when it comes to mathematics.

But things are completely different in Asian countries such as Japan, China and South Korea.

Given enough time, they would run circles around us.

Many would argue that they already are.

A lot of liberal politicians worry about the 5 percent of U.S. students that are homeschooled, but year after year students that are homeschooled perform far better on standardized tests than students in our public schools do…

In the meantime, homeschooled students are excelling, scoring 12 and 22 percentile points higher than private and public-school students respectively on standardized academic achievement tests. This is the case across race and income demographics. A 2015 study showed black homeschool students scoring 23 to 42 percentile points above black public school students.

These results should not be surprising. Traditional schooling, with its rigid one-size-fits-all approach, is oppressive to the intellect and especially harmful to gifted children, who must stifle their natural drive in favor of group conformity.

Our system of education is doing a horrible job of teaching students to read, write, speak and work with numbers.

But it is doing a great job of sexualizing our young people.

In the name of “sex education”, some of the most horrible things that you can imagine are being taught in our classrooms.
