generally ░░░░░░░░ you know in our ░░░░░░░░ We have a freedom ░░░░░░░░ religion of course but ░░░░░░░░ our government seems to ░░░░░░░░ the far left seems ░░░░░░░░ it seems to have ░░░░░░░░ that into a freedom ░░░░░░░░ religion where everybody were ░░░░░░░░ try to where they ░░░░░░░░ to convince everyone that ░░░░░░░░ should be focused on ░░░░░░░░ me me I I ░░░░░░░░ the detriment of society ░░░░░░░░ a whole so we ░░░░░░░░ so insulated and so ░░░░░░░░ and so focused on ░░░░░░░░ own needs and look ░░░░░░░░ Necessities of life definitely ░░░░░░░░ be taken care of ░░░░░░░░ you kind of forget ░░░░░░░░ the bigger picture and ░░░░░░░░ common good and why ░░░░░░░░ heck are we all ░░░░░░░░ in the first place ░░░░░░░░ no and I ve ░░░░░░░░ written on this properly ░░░░░░░░ social media has exacerbated ░░░░░░░░ I called the kind ░░░░░░░░ trend of our modern ░░░░░░░░ if age and individual ░░░░░░░░ which is a term ░░░░░░░░ coined from Carl true ░░░░░░░░ a fellow scholars e ░░░░░░░░ p c who wrote ░░░░░░░░ book the rise in ░░░░░░░░ of the modern south ░░░░░░░░ looking at these trends ░░░░░░░░ how you know we ░░░░░░░░ become a center We ░░░░░░░░ a society so focused ░░░░░░░░ the individual and their ░░░░░░░░ Identity and then identity ░░░░░░░░ become increasingly sexualized go ░░░░░░░░ You honor your sexual ░░░░░░░░ is and I think ░░░░░░░░ media has exacerbated die ░░░░░░░░ need theme night with ░░░░░░░░ algae bt move neck ░░░░░░░░ how Now if not ░░░░░░░░ to just tolerate their ░░░░░░░░ of life babe demand ░░░░░░░░ you affirm it and ░░░░░░░░ day and social media ░░░░░░░░ made us a much ░░░░░░░░ because all you have ░░░░░░░░ do is like the ░░░░░░░░ post or tweet it ░░░░░░░░ share it and so ░░░░░░░░ re demanding that everybody ░░░░░░░░ and celebrate their lifestyle ░░░░░░░░ because of sent as ░░░░░░░░ such a low hanging ░░░░░░░░ as you well in ░░░░░░░░ fence at anyone could ░░░░░░░░ like their posters other ░░░░░░░░ kind of taken to ░░░░░░░░ media to really promote ░░░░░░░░ and and you re ░░░░░░░░ That I think we ░░░░░░░░ in this age where ░░░░░░░░ is so focused on ░░░░░░░░ me me the individual ░░░░░░░░ social media I think ░░░░░░░░ exacerbates that these Big ░░░░░░░░ company these are trying ░░░░░░░░ addicted to their platforms ░░░░░░░░ the whole point of ░░░░░░░░ This to just projecting ░░░░░░░░ in your identity in ░░░░░░░░ ideas out to the ░░░░░░░░ and on you know ░░░░░░░░ really just very self ░░░░░░░░ in self focused and ░░░░░░░░ that is one of ░░░░░░░░ issue then as I ░░░░░░░░ in this recent article ░░░░░░░░ wrote and about out ░░░░░░░░ team than tax How ░░░░░░░░ deserted me company the ░░░░░░░░ coming after our kids ░░░░░░░░ think being rat is ░░░░░░░░ they are now trying ░░░░░░░░ recruit kids and teens ░░░░░░░░ these platforms and on ░░░░░░░░ so we re seeing ░░░░░░░░ that is really affecting ░░░░░░░░ youth that their 10 ░░░░░░░░ game at a young ░░░░░░░░ and just the adapter ░░░░░░░░ that is taking them ░░░░░░░░ a traditional relationships Structures ░░░░░░░░ and exchanging that for ░░░░░░░░ kind of internet influence ░░░░░░░░ voices and influences and ░░░░░░░░ kids are just kind ░░░░░░░░ being really brought up ░░░░░░░░ social media in a ░░░░░░░░ of ways and so ░░░░░░░░ yeah So that s ░░░░░░░░ I m talking about ░░░░░░░░ big hack is the ░░░░░░░░ big tobacco they re ░░░░░░░░ after our kids on ░░░░░░░░ we re starting to ░░░░░░░░ be detrimental social and ░░░░░░░░ effect on think nikolai ░░░░░░░░ hence the title of ░░░░░░░░ of the new piece ░░░░░░░░ it can be found ░░░░░░░░ the central ethics and ░░░░░░░░ policy analyst morel or ░░░░░░░░ today she s the ░░░░░░░░ of that piece Ah ░░░░░░░░ Claire I I totally ░░░░░░░░ the title now and ░░░░░░░░ know as as was ░░░░░░░░ back in the day ░░░░░░░░ when I was growing ░░░░░░░░ in a Big Tech ░░░░░░░░ m sorry big tobacco ░░░░░░░░ started targeting children in ░░░░░░░░ much from they re ░░░░░░░░ clever advertising that really ░░░░░░░░ after the young psyche ░░░░░░░░ re yeah and and ░░░░░░░░ a clear what you ░░░░░░░░ said there it sure ░░░░░░░░ like everywhere We turn ░░░░░░░░ hard for progressive lunatic ░░░░░░░░ is really going after ░░░░░░░░ kids in the schools ░░░░░░░░ to see or t ░░░░░░░░ was the transgender movement ░░░░░░░░ we see that Big ░░░░░░░░ is utilizing Sir some ░░░░░░░░ those tools as well ░░░░░░░░ you point out in ░░░░░░░░ legislator Bruce that you ░░░░░░░░ t conjunction with the ░░░░░░░░ for family studies There ░░░░░░░░ ample evidence to show ░░░░░░░░ would you explain some ░░░░░░░░ that and how some ░░░░░░░░ that evidence was derived ░░░░░░░░ so am que really ░░░░░░░░ and sociologist doctor Jean ░░░░░░░░ s a coauthor with ░░░░░░░░ on the report and ░░░░░░░░ doctor Jonathan hi they ░░░░░░░░ just really trace out ░░░░░░░░ evidence of these huge ░░░░░░░░ in depression anxiety self ░░░░░░░░ and suicide among today ░░░░░░░░ teens and how to ░░░░░░░░ really corresponded with bb ░░░░░░░░ of social media In ░░░░░░░░ 20 eleven 20 13 ░░░░░░░░ we ve just seen ░░░░░░░░ math and spite and ░░░░░░░░ the pie public mental ░░░░░░░░ crisis among teams that ░░░░░░░░ growing up on social ░░░░░░░░ today can really be ░░░░░░░░ to the kind of ░░░░░░░░ addictive nature of these ░░░░░░░░ and how they the ░░░░░░░░ of changed around 20 ░░░░░░░░ and 20 13 and ░░░░░░░░ became ubiquitous among teens ░░░░░░░░ youth to be on ░░░░░░░░ platforms And so I ░░░░░░░░ I born in this ░░░░░░░░ that I do fear ░░░░░░░░ re going to see ░░░░░░░░ meter mental health crisis ░░░░░░░░ teens today due to ░░░░░░░░ media In the way ░░░░░░░░ really fosters this kind ░░░░░░░░ infinite comparison and social ░░░░░░░░ which then leads loneliness ░░░░░░░░ pressure and and at ░░░░░░░░ most extreme were seeing ░░░░░░░░ ping spikes in self ░░░░░░░░ by young teens particularly ░░░░░░░░ girls 10 to 14 ░░░░░░░░ then even suicide rate ░░░░░░░░ huge spike among teenagers ░░░░░░░░ really scary stuff and ░░░░░░░░ think that is where ░░░░░░░░ tiny this to compare ░░░░░░░░ to big tobacco because ░░░░░░░░ think for a while ░░░░░░░░ you ever like wolf ░░░░░░░░ smoking is harmful to ░░░░░░░░ month Is Hamas by ░░░░░░░░ A big pack is ░░░░░░░░ that way and I ░░░░░░░░ the more evidence that ░░░░░░░░ out we are seeing ░░░░░░░░ no doubt this is ░░░░░░░░ a a health crisis ░░░░░░░░ where harming kids and ░░░░░░░░ man with mental health ░░░░░░░░ that they may carry ░░░░░░░░ them for the rest ░░░░░░░░ their lives Speaking to ░░░░░░░░ policy analyst of excellent ░░░░░░░░ policy center at clear ░░░░░░░░ e p p c ░░░░░░░░ Twitter Claire you have ░░░░░░░░ suggestions Not only are ░░░░░░░░ pointing this out and ░░░░░░░░ out the problem you ░░░░░░░░ offering some solutions tell ░░░░░░░░ about some of the ░░░░░░░░ that legislators the policy ░░░░░░░░ could deploy to push ░░░░░░░░ against this harmful effect ░░░░░░░░ our children Absolutely our ░░░░░░░░ is really focused on ░░░░░░░░ states can do because ░░░░░░░░ ve we are you ░░░░░░░░ the federal government has ░░░░░░░░ failed terrain and Big ░░░░░░░░ influence on our kid ░░░░░░░░ so it really is ░░░░░░░░ to states to step ░░░░░░░░ the breach and our ░░░░░░░░ is on state peaking ░░░░░░░░ that will empower parents ░░░░░░░░ better protect their children ░░░░░░░░ requiring parental Can stand ░░░░░░░░ create a social media ░░░░░░░░ indies accounts you have ░░░░░░░░ agree to their terms ░░░░░░░░ service is essentially entering ░░░░░░░░ a contract and they ░░░░░░░░ drawing on contract law ░░░░░░░░ country It s completely ░░░░░░░░ You know by in ░░░░░░░░ a lot of spent ░░░░░░░░ on past president that ░░░░░░░░ should be able to ░░░░░░░░ their child forming such ░░░░░░░░ contract with the social ░░░░░░░░ company and so really ░░░░░░░░ parents consent to make ░░░░░░░░ account or even going ░░░░░░░░ far as can mandate ░░░░░░░░ parental access to all ░░░░░░░░ social media accounts that ░░░░░░░░ parents to be on ░░░░░░░░ accounts of their kids ░░░░░░░░ can see everything they ░░░░░░░░ doing and protect them ░░░░░░░░ their various privacy settings ░░░░░░░░ review their friend request ░░░░░░░░ and than the last ░░░░░░░░ we say is you ░░░░░░░░ one of the most ░░░░░░░░ measures in the state ░░░░░░░░ enact a complete ban ░░░░░░░░ social media are all ░░░░░░░░ eat In the same ░░░░░░░░ we ve restricted tobacco ░░░░░░░░ have to be 18 ░░░░░░░░ older to purchase or ░░░░░░░░ things that we ve ░░░░░░░░ as inappropriate or dangerous ░░░░░░░░ children can be age ░░░░░░░░ a stir Eight can ░░░░░░░░ place an age restriction ░░░░░░░░ having social media and ░░░░░░░░ would obviously be the ░░░░░░░░ measure but it s ░░░░░░░░ unprecedented and so that ░░░░░░░░ you know another action ░░░░░░░░ they could take the ░░░░░░░░ are several things that ░░░░░░░░ believe they could do ░░░░░░░░ empower parents and better ░░░░░░░░ kid From these harmful ░░░░░░░░ that we re seeing ░░░░░░░░ social media fantastic piece ░░░░░░░░ discussion as well folks ░░░░░░░░ can follow at morel ░░░░░░░░ p p c the ░░░░░░░░ and public policy center ░░░░░░░░ new piece up at ░░░░░░░░ federalist is Big Tech ░░░░░░░░ new big tobacco clear ░░░░░░░░ a will continue this ░░░░░░░░ in many different ways ░░░░░░░░
