Are Children More Socially Aware Than They Used To Be?
When children are interviewed on the news about stuff going on in the world and I am talking those no older than say 14, the statements and opinions they come out with would never be even thought about among my peers when I was that age in the early seventies. All we discussed was mundane day to day stuff, not worrying about what was going on in the world around us. Don't know if it's a good thing.

There is some evidence that the UK's "older generation" is actually losing objectivity, the ability to rationally reason things out from first principles (facts, reality), and instead refusing to employ such practices in favour of resolutely and permanently facing backward in life without so much as a glimpse at anything beyond the rear view tunnel vision. Hope for the future lies in younger people not taking up the example as they go through life and that they will even learn from those showing better ways in the rest of the world (globally) from which we can choose without the dismissive biases, including "we are World Leaders, The Best, etc.".
