Advancements in Technology has led to Many Young People With Feelings of Nihilism

For many generations religion is what dictated most people’s morals, but as technology has advanced and now that ideas are so easily shared, religion has become less and less popular. Young people are surrounded by ideas and trends that challenge these old ways of thinking, there is an overwhelming amount of knowledge that reminds us how insignificant we are, I believe this to be a factor in how easily young people get attached to radical ideas that can seemingly give people’s lives, the sort of profound meaning they search for when presented with the idea that there is none. Echo chambers in modern media is good example of this idea as it re affirms people’s beliefs very strongly, making their paradigm increasingly narrow.
