Indeed. I don’t usually take too much stock into talk of conspiracy – although I appreciate what you’ve shared- and I did look and learned a few things – I always listen though. Even if premises and conclusions are off, sometimes a little tidbit within is interesting.
Do you know what the GenZ’s most common response to a lot of the videos about shootings and stuff?
You’ll see it all over youtube.::
They’re skeptical to the extreme. They have the added trouble/benefit of SEEING lots of faked videos _and_ having the capability of easily faking videos themselves.
So, I admire their skepticism in that it’ll help them be more discerning about news reports .. and even some of the stuff their teachers say.
But they also seem to know that conspiracy theories are usually too complicated or too simple as well.
I mean it’s only a certain subculture within Generation Z – they’re the ones usually posting dank memes, “jet fuel doesn’t melt steel beams” and illuminati symbols but in jest.. They’re BOTH skeptical of conspiracy and _also_ skeptical of media.
What will come of it? I dunno. I’m hoping a balanced headed generation that doesn’t believe things at first sight but also doesn’t go straight to conspiracy but rather weighs things out.
That’s my hope anyway smile emoticon
