We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists
Awesome article on America's youth...

On Facebook, young people can fool themselves into thinking they have hundreds or thousands of “friends.” They can delete unflattering comments. They can block anyone who disagrees with them or pokes holes in their inflated self-esteem. They can choose to show the world only flattering, sexy or funny photographs of themselves (dozens of albums full, by the way), “speak” in pithy short posts and publicly connect to movie stars and professional athletes and musicians they “like.”

We must beware of the toxic psychological impact of media and technology on children, adolescents and young adults, particularly as it regards turning them into faux celebrities—the equivalent of lead actors in their own fictionalized life stories.

Using Twitter, young people can pretend they are worth “following,” as though they have real-life fans, when all that is really happening is the mutual fanning of false love and false fame
...

All the while, these adolescents, teens and young adults are watching a Congress that can’t control its manic, euphoric, narcissistic spending, a president that can’t see his way through to applauding genuine and extraordinary achievements in business, a society that blames mass killings on guns, not the psychotic people who wield them, and—here no surprise—a stock market that keeps rising and falling like a roller coaster as bubbles inflate and then, inevitably, burst.



You will want to read the rest!!! Very insightful

Facebook crashing would have a more devastating effect on society then world of warcraft shutting down.

Re: We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists
Not raising, but raised. This shit started with the advent of the Internet. The advent of social media, especially with Facebook, very seriously started the near vertical cliff fall of Western Civilization's sense of anything worthwhile. Which is why I absolutely refuse to participate in social media whatsoever.

I still don't understand how some people will spill their guts on the internet and think nothing of it.

Wait until this next generation wants a job and employers are checking social media more than they do now. There's some really dumb shit out there now.

A hot young chick that work for the same company as I do posted a bunch of pics with her drunk in a tiny bikini and guess what... she no longer works there.

What's REALLY fuckin' sad, TDJ, is how I've heard and read online that more and more employers in real life are requiring potential employees to have active Facebook accounts in order to see into their lives and whatnot as fully as possible. No Facebook account? Oh fucking well for you, Anti-Social Media Loser, NO job for you! That's exactly how I feel too. I've been told by a friend a long time ago online that he couldn't get hired because he had no active Facebook account. Just makes me want to get on Welfare all the more. Those of us who aren't goddamn suckers for Social Media are getting fucked in the ass constantly!

I've been at my job 15 years so hopefully I won't have to deal with that invasion of privacy.

I get random UA's and think that's a huge invasion of my privacy but I put up with it for a decent wage.

Actually the WW II generation raised the first recent generation of deluded narcissists. They are called BABY BOOMERS and they have been taking a self centered shit on the rest of us for their entire self consumed lives.

Umm, well, for instance, if it weren't for them baby boomers, there'd still be a draft, and guys like you would still be wearing button-down white (and occasionally powder blue) shirts to work, silly. You'd also have to shave that peach fuzz off your face each morning.

What's more, you wouldn't be allowed to say words like s*it in a public forum like this...
