Yep, its worrying, for the future generations. And even for our, because these young people will be working on us, when we grew old, and they will have a huge impact on how things will be.
But it seems to me, that I have so little power to actually change something, and its a lot of the time not worth it getting angry and passionate about explaining stuff.
In my opinion, number 1 problem in the USA [maybe in the world as well], is that, people just cant say "Yes, I was wrong and you are right", but they are so proud and they are just fighting for what they think even if it is nonsense. I see that mostly on the left side, but also the right. Nobody wants to admit that they are wrong. Therefore there are just meaningless fights, because even if you explain stuff, they just dont take your words seriously, and therefore its just a waste of time and energy to explain.
