    Why Are So Many Young People Unhappy?

    Here are some awful statistics and insights into why.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    I can't say the reasons listed in the article aren't aggravating factors but it seems the big one, the number one reason I believe young people are so unhappy is because they are taught to be. When I was a kid, the only time you heard the term offensive, is if someone was talking about war or sports. Now, the simple fact that others exist in this world is cause for most to be offended or claim they're being bullied and/or oppressed.

    Now wait just a dang nabbed minute. Don't drag the beautiful game into this. It's played around the globe and inspires many young people to greater things.

    My first impression is that people under 30 have been indoctrinated into believing that the world will cease to exist before the end of their natural life span. Add that to a decline in religious teaching as mentioned above, and it pretty much sucks hope out of people.

    Yep. School indoctrination at all levels.
