Today's young people are ever so impressed with themselves. That is not to say they have accomplished much, with many 30 somethings still living with mum and dad since their part-timer at Starbucks just does not cover the cost of rent, especially when they have to buy the latest $600 cell phone every four months. The astonishing thing, though is how incredibly ignorant they are about world events and history and politics, though they are huge consumers of pop culture and fashion and all things “hip.” The disconnect is especially obvious when they are queried on hard facts which they have little use for, but they are certain that they are much smarter than the commoners because, well, the song tells them “they are the world.”
