The “Most Educated” Generation – IOTW Report

The “Most Educated” Generation

Look at these imbeciles. Would we have gotten to the moon with these mumble-moufed morons in charge?

When the left says that this is the “most educated generation” they are simply talking about the number of people in college. They are talking quantity, not quality.

I submit that this is one of the LEAST educated generations in terms of intelligence. These college students are an embarrassment.

(I love when the Asian girl screams “you’re white!!!!!” when someone asks how the cops are being racist. That catch-all has been eliciting high marks from her pony-tailed WHITE professors, so why wouldn’t this programmed asshole robot be shouting it?)

  1. The most indoctrinated generation – there, I fixed it.
    Unfortunately, the one’s with value will be sacrificed by the one’s without any value.

  2. The “most indoctrinated” generation! Indoctrinated with ignorance and hate.
    We are just now seeing the fruits of Common Core, which is a deliberate attempt to permanently corrupt, confuse and cripple a child´s brain making it impossible to excel in the modern world… and this is the proof!

  3. They are being brainwashed into believing they are smart or have something worth contributing. The fact is most of them are useless. I would be interested in the results of an experiment where someone was to give incoming college freshmen a sample test for 9th graders from 100 years ago. I wonder what the pass/fail rate would be.

  4. “I submit that this is one of the LEAST educated generations in terms of intelligence.”

    Intelligence is subjective, even fungible. I would agree that they are maybe the least capable, responsible, free-thinking, self-sufficient, self-aware generation in a while.

    Many colleges now are providing students with “Basic Necessities of Life” classes, teaching students such rudimentary skills as basic hygiene, finance, and applicable social skills, gently guiding students firmly ensconced in the cocoon of their safe spaces and into the real world where we don’t really give a shit about your feelings.

  5. …I do one bit every day with the Company TV. Someone keeps putting the shampeachment on at the beginning of the day (because it’s supposed to be on NBC), but *somehow*, after I happen to walk by, it magically changes to something less stupid, but nonetheless similarly themed. Today, I chose to regale our millenial international workforce with the awesome jurisprudence of Judge Matthis, which is INTENSELY stupid, but STILL manages to look like the Second Coming of Solon compared to “judge” Popeye…

  6. The barbarian hordes are crossing the Rubicon, but the males of Rome are too busy painting their faces to go looking for a sword… and wouldn’t know how to use it if they found one.

    This has all happened before.

  7. I doubt any of there students are taking business, accounting, finance or engineering classes. These “students”are taking gender orr race studies or underwater basket weaving. Rack up hugh student debt and thrn wonder they can’t gwt a job. Losers.

  8. Intelligence appears to be inversely proportional to education. The more education you have, the lower your intelligence, and vice versa. Information availability is a separate issue

  9. take aways from video:

    monkeys cannot fold up a tables

    only communists have rights

    communist bravery comes from having a mob behind you

    campus cops will not protect conservatives rights

    debate is dead among these communists

  10. Hopefully, I won’t be around to see it, but I fear that these morons are all going to end up working in a Chinese slave labor camp some day, here in the US.

  11. These children have SO SO much to look forward to.
    REAL LIFE kicking their juvenile asses.
    Pregnancy, dead end job searches, divorce, illness, financial hardship and general apathy from people whom they perceived to actually care.
    They’ll look back on this quaint little “protest” video and wonder who those people in the video were.
    It will be so entertaining to watch.

  12. And by the way, wouldn’t screaming at the top of her lungs 6 inches away from someone’s ear be considered physical assault?

    I mean, that could cause real damage.
    Not to mention a broken nose.

  13. Brainwashed, my ass. They’re corrupt narcissists trying to keep their pathetic gravy train (free downloads, and the like).

    Forget the moon. What if we are attacked and need to fight?

  14. The sad part is you can’t even reason with them, because they won’t listen. So sure their right about everything.

    Maximum intelligence is between age 4 and 18, at 4 they have all the questions and at 18 they have all the answers.

    My daughter in-law was a big Obama supporter. So my 10 year old granddaughter thought she was too. She worked her ass off to get into the higher learning classes. Studied for 3 years to make it. I asked her who in her class didn’t study, she responded “Mary”. I told her I was going to take half of her grade, and give it to Mary. She responded “THAT’S NOT FAIR”.

    Life and learning, is in the small lessons.

    > I doubt any of there students are taking business, accounting, finance or engineering classes. These “students”are taking gender orr race studies or underwater basket weaving.

    Because the former are run by people different from the people that run the latter? Hired by different people? Passing out different titles? From different kiosks?

    How… intersectional.

  17. The left has been mobilizing and has voter registration efforts all over these college campuses to target these imbeciles. And unlike in the past, they are making sure these young people don’t just register but also vote. They have all kinds of vote early, extended vote times and convenient places and it really screwed us in Texas with Beto’s election. They literally flipped Hays county to blue with Texas State and how many of those imbeciles live in TX or are even here today? Meanwhile I actually have a friggin open progressive nutball representative.

  19. Looking at these “educated individuals”, when their world implodes around them and they succumb to the slaughter that befalls all useless idiots,, those that are going to make Solyent Green out of them are going to have to add a lot of artificial flavorings and do an awful lot of filtering.

  20. …Socrates knew where “education” was headed a loooong time ago and the WARNED us, but they don’t TEACH him any more, so…

    “And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened: –Behold! human beings living in a underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den; here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads. Above and behind them a fire is blazing at a distance, and between the fire and the prisoners there is a raised way; and you will see, if you look, a low wall built along the way, like the screen which marionette players have in front of them, over which they show the puppets.

    I see.
    And do you see, I said, men passing along the wall carrying all sorts of vessels, and statues and figures of animals made of wood and stone and various materials, which appear over the wall? Some of them are talking, others silent.

    You have shown me a strange image, and they are strange prisoners.
    Like ourselves, I replied; and they see only their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave?

    True, he said; how could they see anything but the shadows if they were never allowed to move their heads?

    And of the objects which are being carried in like manner they would only see the shadows?

    Yes, he said.
    And if they were able to converse with one another, would they not suppose that they were naming what was actually before them?

    Very true.
    And suppose further that the prison had an echo which came from the other side, would they not be sure to fancy when one of the passers-by spoke that the voice which they heard came from the passing shadow?

    No question, he replied.
    To them, I said, the truth would be literally nothing but the shadows of the images.

    That is certain.
    And now look again, and see what will naturally follow it’ the prisoners are released and disabused of their error. At first, when any of them is liberated and compelled suddenly to stand up and turn his neck round and walk and look towards the light, he will suffer sharp pains; the glare will distress him, and he will be unable to see the realities of which in his former state he had seen the shadows; and then conceive some one saying to him, that what he saw before was an illusion, but that now, when he is approaching nearer to being and his eye is turned towards more real existence, he has a clearer vision, -what will be his reply? And you may further imagine that his instructor is pointing to the objects as they pass and requiring him to name them, -will he not be perplexed? Will he not fancy that the shadows which he formerly saw are truer than the objects which are now shown to him?

    Far truer.
    And if he is compelled to look straight at the light, will he not have a pain in his eyes which will make him turn away to take and take in the objects of vision which he can see, and which he will conceive to be in reality clearer than the things which are now being shown to him?

    True, he now
    And suppose once more, that he is reluctantly dragged up a steep and rugged ascent, and held fast until he ‘s forced into the presence of the sun himself, is he not likely to be pained and irritated? When he approaches the light his eyes will be dazzled, and he will not be able to see anything at all of what are now called realities.

    Not all in a moment, he said.
    He will require to grow accustomed to the sight of the upper world. And first he will see the shadows best, next the reflections of men and other objects in the water, and then the objects themselves; then he will gaze upon the light of the moon and the stars and the spangled heaven; and he will see the sky and the stars by night better than the sun or the light of the sun by day?

    Last of he will be able to see the sun, and not mere reflections of him in the water, but he will see him in his own proper place, and not in another; and he will contemplate him as he is.

    He will then proceed to argue that this is he who gives the season and the years, and is the guardian of all that is in the visible world, and in a certain way the cause of all things which he and his fellows have been accustomed to behold?

    Clearly, he said, he would first see the sun and then reason about him.

    And when he remembered his old habitation, and the wisdom of the den and his fellow-prisoners, do you not suppose that he would felicitate himself on the change, and pity them?

    Certainly, he would.
    And if they were in the habit of conferring honours among themselves on those who were quickest to observe the passing shadows and to remark which of them went before, and which followed after, and which were together; and who were therefore best able to draw conclusions as to the future, do you think that he would care for such honours and glories, or envy the possessors of them? Would he not say with Homer,

    Better to be the poor servant of a poor master, and to endure anything, rather than think as they do and live after their manner?

    Yes, he said, I think that he would rather suffer anything than entertain these false notions and live in this miserable manner.

    Imagine once more, I said, such an one coming suddenly out of the sun to be replaced in his old situation; would he not be certain to have his eyes full of darkness?

    To be sure, he said.
    And if there were a contest, and he had to compete in measuring the shadows with the prisoners who had never moved out of the den, while his sight was still weak, and before his eyes had become steady (and the time which would be needed to acquire this new habit of sight might be very considerable) would he not be ridiculous? Men would say of him that up he went and down he came without his eyes; and that it was better not even to think of ascending; and if any one tried to loose another and lead him up to the light, let them only catch the offender, and they would put him to death.

    No question, he said.
    This entire allegory, I said, you may now append, dear Glaucon, to the previous argument; the prison-house is the world of sight, the light of the fire is the sun, and you will not misapprehend me if you interpret the journey upwards to be the ascent of the soul into the intellectual world according to my poor belief, which, at your desire, I have expressed whether rightly or wrongly God knows. But, whether true or false, my opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally, either in public or private life must have his eye fixed.

    I agree, he said, as far as I am able to understand you.
    Moreover, I said, you must not wonder that those who attain to this beatific vision are unwilling to descend to human affairs; for their souls are ever hastening into the upper world where they desire to dwell; which desire of theirs is very natural, if our allegory may be trusted.

    Yes, very natural.
    And is there anything surprising in one who passes from divine contemplations to the evil state of man, misbehaving himself in a ridiculous manner; if, while his eyes are blinking and before he has become accustomed to the surrounding darkness, he is compelled to fight in courts of law, or in other places, about the images or the shadows of images of justice, and is endeavouring to meet the conceptions of those who have never yet seen absolute justice?

    Anything but surprising, he replied.
    Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind’s eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees any one whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter light, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of light. And he will count the one happy in his condition and state of being, and he will pity the other; or, if he have a mind to laugh at the soul which comes from below into the light, there will be more reason in this than in the laugh which greets him who returns from above out of the light into the den.

    That, he said, is a very just distinction.
    But then, if I am right, certain professors of education must be wrong when they say that they can put a knowledge into the soul which was not there before, like sight into blind eyes.

    They undoubtedly say this, he replied.
    Whereas, our argument shows that the power and capacity of learning exists in the soul already; and that just as the eye was unable to turn from darkness to light without the whole body, so too the instrument of knowledge can only by the movement of the whole soul be turned from the world of becoming into that of being, and learn by degrees to endure the sight of being, and of the brightest and best of being, or in other words, of the good.

    Very true.
    And must there not be some art which will effect conversion in the easiest and quickest manner; not implanting the faculty of sight, for that exists already, but has been turned in the wrong direction, and is looking away from the truth?

    Yes, he said, such an art may be presumed.
    And whereas the other so-called virtues of the soul seem to be akin to bodily qualities, for even when they are not originally innate they can be implanted later by habit and exercise, the of wisdom more than anything else contains a divine element which always remains, and by this conversion is rendered useful and profitable; or, on the other hand, hurtful and useless. Did you never observe the narrow intelligence flashing from the keen eye of a clever rogue –how eager he is, how clearly his paltry soul sees the way to his end; he is the reverse of blind, but his keen eyesight is forced into the service of evil, and he is mischievous in proportion to his cleverness.

    Very true, he said.
    But what if there had been a circumcision of such natures in the days of their youth; and they had been severed from those sensual pleasures, such as eating and drinking, which, like leaden weights, were attached to them at their birth, and which drag them down and turn the vision of their souls upon the things that are below –if, I say, they had been released from these impediments and turned in the opposite direction, the very same faculty in them would have seen the truth as keenly as they see what their eyes are turned to now.

    Very likely.
    Yes, I said; and there is another thing which is likely. or rather a necessary inference from what has preceded, that neither the uneducated and uninformed of the truth, nor yet those who never make an end of their education, will be able ministers of State; not the former, because they have no single aim of duty which is the rule of all their actions, private as well as public; nor the latter, because they will not act at all except upon compulsion, fancying that they are already dwelling apart in the islands of the blest.

    Very true, he replied.
    Then, I said, the business of us who are the founders of the State will be to compel the best minds to attain that knowledge which we have already shown to be the greatest of all-they must continue to ascend until they arrive at the good; but when they have ascended and seen enough we must not allow them to do as they do now.

    What do you mean?
    I mean that they remain in the upper world: but this must not be allowed; they must be made to descend again among the prisoners in the den, and partake of their labours and honours, whether they are worth having or not.”

    -Plato, “The Cave”

  21. If this isn’t a Southernism, it should be, “Educated beyond their intelligence”.
    A corollary to, “Bless their (flabby black pea-pickin’ little) hearts”.

  22. This reminds me, don’t know why. There’s a sale on bulk ammo. Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy ammo, and that’s pretty much the same thing.

  23. Morons. What a pathetic example of students. No respect, for others or themselves. Absolutely no future. They actually look like a group of elementary or junior high students. When in groups these “youts” just can’t act civil. They aren’t socialized in the traditional manner and represent a cultural failure. They have never been taught respect, responsibility or manners. And, they simply love calling attention to themselves. Not racist, just truth.
