On Brexit, Trump, and Anti-Intellectualism

I’m optimistic that ignorance will decrease over time. Thanks to social media, the voice of minorities and oppressed groups are finally accessible. Our youngest generations are learning compassion. The most hateful groups are (sorry to be ageist here but…) the eldest in society, and they will be leaving soon. The elders were the group that had the highest percentage voting for Brexit, while the youth voted against. Same with the people that support Trump. These people who are rooted in outdated ideas will be gone in a few decades. The youth will be taking over the important decisions with mindfulness and inclusivity. This is what I see coming. Children are bright.

And in my later years, I hope to continue to be open minded and to end the cycle of ignorance in an advanced digital culture.
