A New York professor is saying that Generation Z is too brittle and are putting America’s future in jeopardy, especially if a war happens, because they will be utterly useless in combat.

Sounds about right.

Jonathan Haidt, a prominent social psychologist at New York University, said in the Wall Street Journal that Gen Z could be the death of us all.

Gen Z has been raised to be addicted to pointless social media posts, and to be whiny victims who have no love for traditions, family, or the United States.

“When you look at Americans born after 1995, what you find is that they have extraordinarily high rates of anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicide and fragility,” Haidt told the paper.

The article went on to say “He attributes this to the combination of social media and a culture that emphasizes victimhood.”

Terrible parenting also made Gen Z too “fragile” and unable to deal with the stress of adulthood.

Social media is also a factor.

“Whereas millennial women are doing well, ‘Gen-Z women, because they’re so anxious, are going to be less successful than Gen-Z men—and that’s saying a lot, because Gen-Z men are messed up, too,'” the article reads.

Indeed, Haidt said that “[s]ocial media is incompatible with liberal democracy because it has moved conversation, and interaction, into the center of the Colosseum. We’re not there to talk to each other. We’re there to perform.”

Haidt also says that American universities are also contributing to Gen Z’s fragility.

Students “are in the safest, most welcoming, most inclusive, most antiracist places on the planet, but many of them were acting like they were entering some sort of dystopian, threatening, immoral world.”

Seems like he’s right on.

This nation has serious problems with our culture. It has been tuned to destroy this nation.
