Why is Gen Z so depressed? And why is Gen Z quietly giving up? In this thought-provoking video essay, we'll dive deep into the challenges faced by Gen Z in the Internet Age. From the adoption of smartphones to the loss of traditional metanarratives and to the distortion caused by the digital realm, we'll explore why this generation is grappling with unprecedented feelings of hopelessness. In this video, I lean heavily on the work of Dr. Jean Twenge, Professor of Psychology at San Diego State University. Her book "Generations" is based on twenty-four datasets, some of which go back to the 1940s. They assess children, adolescents, and adults and include a staggering total of 39 million people. Nearly all of the datasets are nationally representative, meaning that respondents resemble the whole population in terms of gender, race/ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, and region of the country. Most of the data is from the U.S., but other datasets were collected in countries around the world.
