Unthinkingness, Unfeelingness

It seems, throughout history, every preceding generation has complained about the degeneration of the next. But this time it's different.

This phenomenon is not limited to Americans. Almost everywhere you go, you can observe masses of unthinking and unfeeling people who are unable to distinguish between fact and fiction, truth and untruth, right and wrong, the real and the unreal, the important and the trivial.
