Take a newspaper, and you will find a number of news and articles regarding all the wrong doings of the youth including drug abuse, sexual crimes and violence day in and day out.
Why are they indulging in such nefarious activities? Lack of motivation is definitely the primary cause that throws youths into the deep tunnels of crimes and illegality. Basically, it’s a chain reaction. Lack of motivation gives rise to depression that compels them to indulge in such immoral activities.
List of Causes that are Spoiling Today’s Generation :
1) Feeling of Despair of Hopelessness
Out of 200 recognized nations, around 60% of the people are living in abject poverty. They don’t even avail basic necessities of life prompting them to indulge in crimes and violence. Social inequality is certainly ‘the factor’ leading to the feeling of hopelessness among youths.
2) The Silver Spoon Syndrome
Many of the Millennials are born with a silver spoon. They don’t want to face any difficulties of life. They wish to live in an ideal world of their own sans any reality. On facing real issues of life even it is a petty one like break up, they take arms in their own hands. Relationship chaos is still a major cause behind the rising cases of gun violence in the US.
3) Accepting Virtual World as Real
People spend around 12-14 hours of their daily lives inside social media, and computers. What did you accept? Exposing oneself on social media for so long definitely disengages them from the reality of the world. It makes today’s youth more aggressive and violent.
4) Inherent Laziness
Today’s youths are innately lazy and lethargic. Technology makes them lazier more than ever now. Starting from online shopping to online payment, youths have almost forgotten how to do conventional shopping and banking transactions in bricks and mortars.
