Beware feminist attack for saying this, Rockefellers funded tons of money for it, but it's the choice of most people.

So you're saying feminism is making disconnected children due to women being empowered within the workforce and this was all funded by the Rockefellers for... some reason...?

You lost me on the last part. The reason women are entering the workforce and working longer hours, while encouraged by feminism, is mainly due to higher divorce rates and wages not keeping up with inflation. Single mothers are much more common now and they need to work twice as much to earn the same paycheck they would make 40 years ago. Not sure how the Rockefellers fit into that...

(the 140-characters design make sure everyone who had dyslexia can read it), and Instagram, which is most dyslexia user-friendly. It makes them dumber and dumber.

That's not how dyslexia works at all and you can be dyslexic while also being very intelligent. Twitter, instagram, and facebook are meant to be concise and easily consumed. There isn't really a relation to someone's intelligence and their social media usage, but there is towards their mental health. Using social media has been proven to cause/exacerbate depression/anxiety.

Before the first industrial revolution, people have to have more and more healthy children for farming, they got the most benefit for having more than healthy 10 children, they have no dare to treat them bad since bacteria and viruses can kill them easily at that era, they thought their parental investment is rewarding in future.

Yeah, tell that to all the child labors laws that were passed and constant physical abuse within households. They had 10 children because 8 of them would die before the age of 12. The population didn't explode until the baby boomers, which brings us to....

After the first and second industrial revolution, it's still rewarding, but the early investment is higher and higher to create a qualified workforce, they started to cut down numbers of babies.

The third industrial revolution: the environment changes too fast, they don't know what they can get from the child in the future, with tons of child abuse.

There are less kids being born because condoms and birth control are more prevalent and medical treatment has improved greatly. There's MUCH LESS child abuse today than there was 100yrs ago. You used to be able to hit kids with a fucking paddle in the middle of class. You would be thrown in jail for that now.

The fourth industrial revolution: robots gap all the job," what the hell I have to take care of my generation Z child? I should work more for myself, the wage is the reward, parenting =no money rewarding."So you can see they use different ways to cut down the time of parenting, and warning each other don't use too much time to take care of their children as a wise option, many "heroes" on TV dramas showing they have the dreams they chasing and leave their under 10 years old children. (I thought it's a huge plot hole that such a person with such lack of caring personality, how can he being a hero?)

Again, we have LESS children because as people become more healthy and educated, they are much less likely to do irresponsible things such as having a child at 16. Our population is fairly level currently. What is your obsession with having kids? We don't need to be CONSTANTLY growing in population size like a goddamn cancer lol. We live longer and healthier lives and so do our children. There's little need to keep popping them out.

That said, I do agree that there are major problems with our current society as a whole. I think you're right about a lack of connection between parent and child in modern society. I also think social media is a cancer on the mind capable of a lot of damage. I just disagree with your interpretation of how social media affects us and the reasons for why we are more disconnected as a society.

I didn't say "ALL", it's was funded by the Rockefellers, but choose to work nor take care of children is their own choice.

LOL.

Check the child mortality 300 years ago, you give the wrong number,it's not 80%.

There is no daycare at that era.

LOL. We live longer, but not healthier.

LOL.

Good job refuting my claim with... nothing?

Check the child mortality 300 years ago, you give the wrong number,it's not 80%.

Obviously I'm not quoting a direct statistic here. If you REALLY want me to then I can, but it's a very well known fact that both abuse and mortality was MUCH worse 300 years ago compared to today. The statistics of life expectancy are skewed so far down BECAUSE of infant/child mortality. If you lived to adulthood it was very common to make it into your 60's and even older.

There is no daycare at that era.

Yes, because children were doing hard manual labor when not in school, if they even went to school in the first place. What is better for a child, gaining an education or working your hands to the bone in a rye field?

LOL. We live longer, but not healthier.

That's completely up to the individual. You certainly have the option to eat MUCH more nutritious food in today's society than even 50 years ago. Nobody is forcing anyone to eat McDonalds every day. On average height and weight have increased due to our food being much more nutritious than 300 years ago. This is, again, a fact. The fact that people CHOOSE to eat worse doesn't mean that our food is actually worse, we have the much more variety and nutrition within our food than we had back then.

gen Z use the Faceshit replace it, by clicking "likes", such a very simple act, to "communicate" with people, because they don't need parents to teach them how to click "likes".Reading is too complicated for them, that's why they got Twitter(the 140-characters design make sure everyone who had dyslexia can read it), and Instagram, which is most dyslexia user-friendly. It makes them dumber and dumber.

Maybe some of Generation Z are like this, but I, as someone born in 2001, am a bit different. For one, I hate Facebook, so for online interaction I use sites like Reddit and SaidIt, and servers for games like Minecraft and Minetest. As for reading, that certainly isn't too complicated for me; I love very long, complicated texts.
