First I want to clarify that I am not writing this with any SC member in mind. I talked about this topic with a collaegue today. Our feeling is that humans have become more stupid than they were 20-30 years ago. We talked social media and school. We see posts online that makes absolutely no sense. People who can't think with logic. People who blame something on for example the government when the government has absolutely nothing to do with it. We also see students who completely lack basic knowledge on things we take for granted that they know. It could be quite simple words that they haven't heard before, and can't even pronounce correctly. Or very famous authors or movies they have never heard of. And most important: many can't seem to grasp what they read! They read a page, but then can't summarize it because they did not understand! So.... have people in general become more stupid in the last 30 years -- or do we only think so because we were too little & naïve 20-30 years ago, making us never realize that people were equally as "intellectually challenged" back then?
