END OF CIVILIZATION: Over 1 in 3 Gen Z Youths Strive to Become Social Media Influencers
When America was once a bustling thriving nation, the youth hoped to be doctors, lawyers, engineers, astronauts, innovators…
Now, they want to make mindnumbing videos for consumption by soulless phone-absorbed drones on TikTok.
A troubling new survey by Higher Visibility shows that over one in three members of Generation Z hopes to become an influencer on social media. The results varied by region, but it showed that 41.1 percent of people in the West strive to become YouTube influencers. The number dipped to 38.9 percent in the Northeast, 36.1 percent in the south, and 33.2 percent in the Midwest.
Additionally, 20 percent of Gen Z males responded that being an influencer was their only possible career path. This is higher than the 13 percent of females who believe the same. 27 percent of Gen Z plan to become a social media influencer after leaving school, and nearly 25 percent of Gen Z demands for schools to teach how to become a social media influencer.
What inspires Gen Z to want to become social media influencers? Crass materialism. 62 percent of poll respondents said that getting free swag would be the best thing about being an influencer. This is followed in importance by making money (62 percent) and meeting other influencers (60.5%) as the best things about the lifestyle.
The preferred app for influencing, of course, is the Chinese-owned subversion tool, TikTok. 37 percent of Gen Z choose TikTok as their preferred platform with 21.7 percent preferring YouTube and 21.4 preferring Instagram. All of the other major platforms, like Twitch, Facebook and Twitter, lag behind drastically in terms of popularity among Gen Z.
Big League Politics has reported on the extreme cultural rot driven by technology that is manifesting itself through Generation Z:
“Snowflakes in Generation Z are reportedly triggered by complete sentences and full stops in text message exchanges, according to new research from linguistic experts.
Research indicates that Generation Z feels intimidated by full stops, preferring to speak in fragmented English. Full stops are interpreted as angry and insincere, as the creep toward idiocracy continues.
