Very depressing experience: speaking to high school students at Pike High School in Indianapolis.
The best education money can buy. 5K students on a sprawling campus. Everything a culture could provide its youth. Except ambition, curiosity. I believe by eliminating fear (of hunger, disease, control, exclusion, etc) we've created a generation of young people who aren't motivated to do anything. Why should they?
Sad to see such potential wasted on such sloth.
