No, it’s not a formal event.  But it might not be a bad idea, given the “day of rage” planned by “Black Lives Matters” groups and the internet coward’s association Anonymous, for tomorrow, July 15th 2016:

The entire global collective of Anonymous is outraged at these vicious murders. The time has come to draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough. We are infuriated as we watch day after day, another human, murdered, because an irresponsible, corrupt system allows free reign to cops that continuously abuse their power.

Thus, we are calling upon the citizens of the United States to rise up and stand in solidarity with the people of Dallas, Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, as well as Baltimore and Ferguson……[There goes the stupid, co-opted left (co-opted by a super-rich, super-powerful ruling elite that plays them like puppets on a string) again, inverting truth for a proven lie.  Whatever happened with Alton Sterling and Philando Castile – hardly the most saintly of characters – there was ZERO police brutality in Dallas, Ferguson, or Baton Rouge in the sense these boneheads claim.  In Dallas, it was the police who were viciously attacked, while in Baltimore and Ferguson media hype – it was really lies – created a brutality where there was none.  Michael Brown, a huge man, physically attacked a police officer who subsequently killed him. The false, politicized Baltimore prosecution of police officers has completely fallen apart in court once fictions are separated from fact.  And yet here these guys go, whipped into a frenzy by the people who pull their strings so easily]

We are calling on a collective day of rage. A day of action centered around civil disobedience and the right to protest.

To police departments across the United States. We are not your enemy. However, it is in your hands if you want us to stay that way or not. We will not be silenced and we will not be intimidated. [Nice veiled threat.  We’re not  your enemy, BUT DON’T CROSS US, whatever that means]

These events are planned for cities across the country. The current list is at the link.  Austin is the only city in Texas currently on the list.  Most of the cities on the list are either state capitols or left-wing bulwarks.  Again, go figure.  They claim they don’t want violence, but what the heck is a day of rage without a little smashy-smashy?

If you live in one of the scores of cities on the list, you might want to plan appropriately.

To explain the phenomenon of millennials being co-opted by a trans-national elite, see the video below.  No one argues for more “establishment,” statist solutions than today’s young Left:

Are the millennials the stupidest generation in the history of the West since the rise of mass-literacy in the 18th century?

Here’s, perhaps, a more provocative question – given how access to the internet and addiction to social media has seemingly destroyed the ability of the vast majority of an entire generation to think, should the internet, or at least social media, be banned to those under 21 years of age, if not older?  By sheer coincidence, I first got on the internet in 1991 when I was 20, but that was way before social media (and before the Web) and consisted entirely of e-mail and telnet sites.  That is to say, its impact was minimal.  Today, young people in the culture are so addicted to social media they seem to prefer it to reality in many situations.

Maybe it’s time to consider some limits?

Well, I don’t think a limit or ban on Internet access would ever fly, the student population would be up in arms. You have a point about it affecting their thinking though. And yes, the Millennial generation, which I am a part of, is probably the dumbest generation on earth in centuries. Hence the downward spiral of society which will only accelerate.

I should have added the caveat I have known really awesome millennials. At my former job, there was a 25 year old engineer who was smart, committed, a very hard worker, and never complained. He was awesome. There are always exceptions, but I am really getting warn out with the mass stupidity put on display on a near daily basis.

Now get off my @#%$ lawn.

I agree Tantum. Not only are people losing their ability to think, but I believe the use of “smart” phones and other technology is actually giving these people a false sense of superior intelligence compared to their ancestors. Being able to run a fancy gadget and have a vast amount of information available at your fingertips doesn’t make one smart. Many people have lost the ability to think with logic and reason and problem solve using deductive reasoning. Dealing with people who don’t know how to think is one thing, but dealing with people who don’t know how to think, but think they are a genius in their own mind, is another!

Maybe they could be allowed internet access when they reach military service age, sort of like laws for alcohol use. If you’re old enough to die for your country, you’re old enough to drink, or use the internet — but preferably not at the same time. Friends don’t let friends surf drunk. The first computer I had access to was in high school computer class. There was only one terminal — a Wang and it had a cassette drive (granted it was a small high school). I don’t recall internet — I think it was probably still top-secret defense stuff at that point. But I do believe there was phone-modem access to “bulletin boards” where people could post things. One of my friends went to Texas A & M and learned how to program using cards — you know the physical paper things. Well, we did have some pretty cool Texas Instrument calculators available back then, though. Those could do more than the high school computer I think… ; ) High tech word processing was the electric typewriter.
