Of Course It's Racist

The actual problem is that so many youngsters are totally devoid of discrimination in their thought process, because: discrimination!

This "educated idiocy" is one of the main themes of Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley. Quoting Wikipedia:

Educating children by the hypnopaedic process, which provides each with appropriate subconscious messages to mold the child's self-image appropriate to their caste.

Discouragement of critical thinking. The lower castes are bred for low intelligence and conditioned not to think; in the upper castes, this is achieved by conditioning and social taboos. "High" culture has ceased to exist; serious literature is banned as subversive, as is scientific thinking and experimentation. The only cultural element mentioned, movies with added tactile sensations, deal in pure emotion.

Discouragement of individual action and initiative. Spending time alone is considered abnormal and even reprehensible, and well-adjusted citizens spend their leisure in communal activities requiring no thought. This leads to a lifestyle which readers may see as shallow and hedonistic. It is promoted by the ready availability and universally-endorsed consumption of the hallucinogenic drug soma (an allusion to a ritualistic drink of the same name consumed by ancient Indo-Aryans), and by the promotion of recreational sex, often as a group activity. Emotional, romantic relationships are obsolete; chastity and fidelity are causes for disapproval or mockery; and marriage, natural birth, parenthood, and pregnancy are considered too vulgar to be mentioned in polite conversation. Spiritual needs are met by mock religious services in which twelve people consume soma and sing hymns. The ritual progresses through group hypnosis and climaxes in a sex orgy. The symbol worshiped, largely in place of the Christian cross, is the "T", in homage to Henry Ford who had recently introduced mass production of automobiles with the Model T. The name "Ford" takes the place of "Lord."

So who cares what some DWEM from ancient history has to say about Utopia?!?

Today's college students and their "intellectual teachers" (there's an oxymoron, if ever there was one) fit into this parody of Utopia almost perfectly.

“My favourite definition of an intellectual: 'Someone who has been educated beyond his/her intelligence." - Arthur C. Clarke, 3001: The Final Odyssey

It's gonna be fun living out my final years, watching reality bite these intellectual idiots BIG TIME.

Get me some popcorn.
