Common Knowledge: This Video is a Real Eye-opener
I received this video in my inbox yesterday, and it really made me pause.
Take a look at it by clicking on the link below. You don’t have to watch the whole thing if you don’t have the time, but there’s a section at the end that really brings the point of the video home.
Keep in mind, these aren’t just any old kids, they’re college kids. Our hope for a brighter tomorrow. Keep in mind, too, that the questions being asked aren’t about Guatemala, Uzbekistan, or Chad. They’re being asked about the good old U. S. of A.: their own damn country.
I don’t think their answers are cute like some of them obviously do, or even acceptable.
I don’t think they’re something to laugh off either.
I think they’re a sad reflection of the state of our society.
Maybe I just woke up and slipped on my cranky pants, or am taking the whole “common knowledge is kind of important” thing a bit too seriously.
What do you think?
