A bitch noticed this news bit about teens feeling that a person must lie, cheat and/or whoop some ass to get ahead and…well, it caught my attention.
A new survey seems to say that more teens see the value in such behavior than when the study was last conducted in 2003.
That’s the kind of survey analysis that always pisses me off. Now there are all manner of people trying to blame the increase in teen evilness on politicians, magazines, television shows, and blah followed by blah followed by blah and blah.
But it looks suspiciously like bullshit to this bitch.
According to the survey conducted by Junior Achievement Worldwide, nearly 40 percent of teens believe that lying, cheating or violence are necessary to succeed. 23 percent who said violence toward another person is acceptable on some level. Overall, the number of teens who said they’d fuck with the rules doubled since 2003.
Okay, but mayhap someone should ask some not so obvious questions about this survey data.
Factoring in this new data, how can we trust that the teens are telling the truth when they say they don’t value telling the truth?
Or could it be that these teens are actually being more honest that the 2003 teens? If so, wouldn’t that indicate a decrease in survey dishonesty and wouldn’t that sort of contradict the new survey results?
And why come (wink), if studies are so accurate, everyone and everything gets blamed but the parents even though studies show that teens listen to parents over everybody else?
Shit, now my Afro hurts...
