De-Evolution of hman emotion in the news - NWO has accomplished their goal! Empathy on the decline!
Through 30 years conditioning TPTB have accomplished their goal. 35 year old parents act like the kids they are raising. This is the result.

All about me? College kids lack empathy


Compared to 30 years ago, it's all about me now, study finds

College students today are less likely to "get" the emotions of others than their counterparts 20 and 30 years ago, a new review study suggests.

Specifically, today's students scored 40 percent lower on a measure of empathy than their elders did.

The findings are based on a review of 72 studies of 14,000 American college students overall conducted between 1979 and 2009.

"We found the biggest drop in empathy after the year 2000," said Sara Konrath, a researcher at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research.

The study was presented this week at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science in Boston.

Is "generation me" all about me?
Compared with college students of the late 1970s, current students are less likely to agree with statements such as "I sometimes try to understand my friends better by imagining how things look from their perspective," and "I often have tender, concerned feelings for people less fortunate than me."

"Many people see the current group of college students — sometimes called 'Generation Me ' — as one of the most self-centered, narcissistic, competitive, confident and individualistic in recent history," said Konrath, who is also affiliated with the University of Rochester Department of Psychiatry.

Konrath's colleague graduate student Edward O'Brien added, "It's not surprising that this growing emphasis on the self is accompanied by a corresponding devaluation of others.”

Other recent studies have shown mixed results on the character of today's youth . For instance, one study of more than 450,000 high-school seniors born at different time periods showed today’s youth are no more self-centered than their parents were at their age.

The role of media
Even so, Konrath and O'Brien suggest several reasons for the lower empathy they found, including the ever-increasing exposure to media in the current generation.

"Compared to 30 years ago, the average American now is exposed to three times as much nonwork-related information," Konrath said. "In terms of media content, this generation of college students grew up with video games , and a growing body of research, including work done by my colleagues at Michigan, is establishing that exposure to violent media numbs people to the pain of others."

The rise in social media could also play a role.

"The ease of having 'friends' online might make people more likely to just tune out when they don't feel like responding to others' problems, a behavior that could carry over offline," O'Brien said.

In fact, past research has suggested college students are addicted to social media .

Other possible causes include a society today that’s hypercompetitive and focused on success, as well as the fast-paced nature of today, in which people are less likely than in time periods past to slow down to really listen to others, O'Brien added.

"College students today may be so busy worrying about themselves and their own issues that they don't have time to spend empathizing with others, or at least perceive such time to be limited," O'Brien said.

Yes, the less empathetic public with socialpathic narcissistic tendencies is bewildered by Congressional encroachment into their lives. The public notices increased lack of freedoms, disposable income, and consumer purchasing power with ever increasing taxation.

Be careful what you create, it just might come back to bite you. Congress and Supreme Court must be careful of what laws it makes and breaks.

It is the year 2020, many of these government people are getting ripe with retirement age, thanks to Obama care, it is more economical to medically euthanize them to save money irregardless of their stature or contracted housing or medical agreements. The bottom line is the bottom line, nothing personal, its just good fiscal policy.

Its sad, those past professional legislators up to the 111th Congress must face their dues with a less sympathetic, ethical, moral, and intelligent population.

Just for fun bored unsupervised H1B visa medical staffers torture those convulsing government pensioners, sexually abusing them while they die in a contracted VA facility.

Even as sick as the last sentence is, the generation the NWO created will laugh at this and probably act it out someday.

The B'nai B'rith owned media desensitizes the masses daily with movies glorifying war and the rule o guns, and news orgs uphold the worship of militarism, and MTV started and encourages the street gang culture which victimizes people criminally without conscience.

It shows the sociopathic nature of the Bohemian Grove types running things. Someday, their godless minions will eat the rich, as they deserve.

huh ?

'congressional encroachment' ?

you fucking moron ?

was it the 'congressional encroachment' that made materialism your religion for 30 fucking years ?

was it the congressional encroachment that founded the church of holy laissez faire capitalism ? or was it the right wing in your country ?

was it the congressional encroachment that ushered in your reagan era, in which even the songs turned to 'im a material girl' ?

did congressional encroachment (whatever the fuck is, it doesnt even have relevance to these concepts) that brought forth the yuppie culture ?

or, was it the capitalist private interests that have been controlling your one-way media since 50 years, always advertising how great it is to live a life that is centered on acquiring possesions, more possessions, and even more possessions and 'style' ?

HA ?

it has gone SO over the top that, being rich has become synonymous with 'working hard' in america. and being poor with being lazy. it went beyond that point.

yet, noone can show anyone who actually became rich as the 7% that is ruling your country, by working hard.

aaaah

so its not about everything being about money, but its about 'congressional encroachment'.

so, when someone is dumped by someone because of money, and this causes them to be more oriented towards selfishness, its because 'congressional encroachment'. so, when a family cant send their kid to college because college costs money and they dont have it, and the kid sees this and gets obsessed with money, its because congress 'encroached' and suppressed them.

anyone who is stupid as to think as thus,

fuck off.
