Very detailed question. Stupidity has no age. It's in every age group.

I agree. However, I do not like to call it stupidity. Half the population have been instructed to be braindead and irrational for most of their lives. And failed in many opportunities to break away.

So it's more like misguided and brainwashed, with no regard to age, race (debatable however) and sex

I should have been a bit more specific. There's a certain flavor of person that's a specific mix of arrogance, ignorance, and seemingly no ability to critically reason or argue. They ONLY talk in talking points. Anything outside of those talking points is bad and wrong, no matter what is being said. They're just checking if you're on the same page with them. If you're not, you're part of the problem and likely evil. I guess that's the kind of brain rot I'm referring to. And I agree that it's more a problem of what's been done to them as opposed to some kind of innate stupidity, although unfortunately the end result can be hard to tell apart.

I think you’re right as far as a general age range of 25 to 35. Or basically anybody who’s going to college and got a degree

18 - 22 is ripe for communist indoctrination. How well you're prepared to navigate through those years will determine how long it takes to bring someone back to reality.

I'm guessing there's going to be a massive backlash among the current crop of elementary, middle, and high school students who are being exposed to mindbogglingly crazy attempts to indoctrinate them. Kids are predisposed to rebel against authority, and these kids have a lot of totally insane authority to rebel against.

My kids are younger than that and have completely rejected lefttardism.

Nice. I was kind of getting that sense from some of the comments on here and other places. I guess that's Generation Z?

Yessir. Oldest one is super patriotic and the youngest one literally does a standup routine mocking Karens, gender garbage, etc.

Huh. Do you have any theories as to what the factors are that have changed? It seems like the educational system is still straight commie degenerate indoctrination. And that's what I attribute most of the cause of the problem in the generation above that.

I can only speak for my kids but our family and the vast majority of my inlaws are conservative so they've grown up hearing those values. Additionally, we've taken care to raise them in areas that lean more conservative, so the typical lib indoctrination in schools isn't a factor.

The biggest thing I preach to them is to think for themselves, do their own research and use a critical eye when it comes to "news." Pointing out that weasel language like "an anonymous source" and "experts say" is not factual. Asking them to consider who benefits from the story being presented. What kind of language is being used. What isn't being said. If there's a photo, is it a flattering one or unflattering and why that photo was chosen.

And of course, presenting the myriad of examples of fake news that the MSM has produced over the past 5 years to reinforce the above. My son gets a kick out of having visited the "Syrian Battlefield" highlighted on ABC "News."

Aw, shit. If it comes down to good parenting then we're in trouble. Well, regardless, thanks for doing a good job with your youngins. The critical perspective is one that I always took for granted as being a fundamental good, no matter what one's political alignment was. I think that used to be a general value that was held by most. The leftist thing now is just to believe one version of how things are. The less critical you are the better.

There are people who are raised from childhood to be self sufficient, critical thinking and reasonably minded. Then there are the crazy loser leftists. It's a luck of the draw what you'll be born into.
