Global Survey On Teens Sheds Light On Disturbing Moral Crisis In The West

(Tea Party 247) – According to a new global survey by the OECD among 15-year-olds across the world, young people in the UK are ranked second-to-last in their answers to question on the meaning and significance of their lives.

The survey also found that out of 79 different countries, teens in the UK are the least likely to agree with the phrase that “my life has clear meaning or purpose.”

Consider all the radical political, cultural, social, and moral changes that are taking place in the UK and this should come as no surprise, however depressing.

The UK is a technologically developed country that once had the largest single empire in the history of the world.

There is a strong economy, high levels of literacy, widely-available education, and a supposedly unique culture, so why do so many teenagers lack meaning?

Great Britain is our closest ally for a reason. Although we threw off the yoke of their crown at the foundation of our country, our young nation’s sense of liberty, equality, decency, and piety is is deeply embedded in the land of our forefathers and they, like we, have always been strong patriots with a sense of duty to their Queen, their homeland, their families and their communities.

Teenagers in the UK have much to give their lives meaning, and yet they’re missing out on it.

Perhaps it is the far-left progressivism and humanism that has swept across the once-great Christian nations of the UK. The culture of Britain is now seeped in political correctness and intersectional politics, all of which cast scornful judgment on the wealth and privilege of Western nations while banning faith from the public sphere.

Meanwhile, in nations that are economically poor but strong in religion, like Albania and Panama, teenagers have a very strong sense of purpose.

According to Freddie Sayers, the Executive Editor of UnHerd, the fact that these results suggest that religion makes people more likely to be content means the whole subject is a “less appetising subject for liberal-minded debate.”

“The top of the OECD rankings are filled with more religious countries, and the UK is now one of the most secular countries in the world,” writes Sayers.

He also suggests that a lack of identity due to mass immigration could also be a factor.

“It seems fair to speculate that their famously strong national, regional and local cultures (Switzerland and Austria) play a part in giving their children a strong sense of place as they grow into adulthood,” writes Sayers, adding, “The OECD report actually singles out the UK as a country in which “students with an immigrant background were much more likely to report a greater sense of meaning in life than their native-born counterparts.”

He also highlights things like addiction to social media as well as weak family values as factors that could deprive young adults of feeling that their lives have meaning.

These results also highlight how young people in already secular countries that are becoming even more secular appear to be getting more depressed.

According to another poll recently highlighted by Summit News, a stunning 89 per cent of young people between the ages of 18-29 feel that their lives have no meaning or purpose.

“30 per cent of youngsters complain about being ‘stuck in a rut,’ while 84 per cent say they are failing to ‘live their best life,’” they add.

  1. More than likely, it’s because of the right-wing led Brexit and the fact that they’re cutting themselves off from the rest of the world — sort of a Mini-Trumpville!

  2. The last time I went to England, when I walked out of the airport, I thought I had got on the wrong plane. I thought I landed in India. That was 15 years ago.

  3. Even die-hard communist Vladimir Putin ( who desperately wants his USSR back) recognized that the efforts to crush religion had need a disastrous mistake in Russia, that it was the direct root of many of the social ills that contributed to the downfall of the USSR. He said as much publicly some yrs ago. And he was right. Much more of our identity is rooted in our religious beliefs than leftists the world over are willing to allow. They must squash that to gain control, but WE do not have to let, or worse, help them do so! The time for tough choices is here! Do you follow Yhwh God & Jesus of the Bible, or do you choose to have your ears tickled, while you ” go along to get along”? That means in your places of commerce as well as your homes & houses of worship. Do you stand for Yhwh God & Jesus or do you fall for everything else?

    • I think too many people know NOTHING about Putin or he history of Russia. I`m certainly not saying that he is a saint but the demonisation of him is both dangerous and stupid. I can give you a grocery list of prime ministers and presidents in the western world who should be locked up for the pain and suffering they have caused around the world in the name of “bringing democracy” to countries that never wanted or needed their help. Libya? Iraq?

    • I agree with Dennis Jenkinson about Putin. Putin is not a “die hard” communist. Did he take control and kill people? Yes, he did. Who did he kill? The old guard. Why? Because in his early years after Stalin, the country was a mess, starvation will affected parts of the country, including St. Petersberg, and Putin struggled as a boy to survive. Did he manage somehow to become a KGB? Yes. How? I don’t know his level of education growing up, but he was intelligent, adaptive, and was able to rise through the ranks until he was at the right hand of the former president. He is more a “moderate” communist than anyone before him, and he is trying to build his country’s economy for his people, not for his own power. In his mind, power comes from the “people” who endorse him. His desire for an alliance with the US was economic. He knew how corrupt and sinister H.C. would be, but he recognized that Trump was an exceptional businessman and an alliance could have two advantages: One, to help build a prosperous market economy for the citizenry. Two, to form a military alliance that would be the strongest in the world and capable of easily resisting the insanity we are now seeing from the alt-Left, the globalists, and the Muslims world-domination agenda. Trump might have made such an alliance but for the RINOs and “old guard” generals who will NEVER support an American-Russian alliance. I suspect that an alliance would result in a “benevolent” Russia under Putin’s regime. In my view, the two best forms of government is a free-market merit-based system, and a truly benevolent dictatorship where the health and happiness of the citizens are desired and supported. If Putin guards against “old guard” mindsets, his country could prosper under his regime. Problem is, both types of regime often end up crashing if the leadership is invaded by sinister power-mongering. Just my thoughts.

  4. This course of action by the Democrats is well explained in the following two resources. If you really want to understand what is going on in our government (our Country), I urge (even beg) you to read Andrew Breibart’s book called “Righteous Indignation” or at least watch Glenn Beck’s recent video called “The Democrat Hydra” on YouTube. Glenn’s video provides factual documents and text messages obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) and not conspiracy theory. If you agree Glenn’s information is correct, you can do your part like I am by spreading it around. Do as others have done, copy this entire comment and paste it in your social media networks. Yes, I keep posting this in hopes to reach new readers. We need to do something, not just talk about it. This is a well organized strategy by the Deep State and there is proof if you are willing to research it.

    • Garrett, there are two books heading for publication sometime in January-March. They are: 1) “World Beyond Reason: The Orwellian Factor” and, 2) “Neither Tolerant Nor Peaceful: 1400 Years of Genocide and Hypocrisy! The Truth About Islam.” All patriots, regardless of Party, should buy them, read them, and the bigger picture that you allude to, is all in these books. Thank you for continuing to enlighten patriots to what we Americans are facing.

  5. Mass Invasion of violent cultures and the so called Progressivism has destroy most Western countries that participated in this destruction of their countries.

    • Im a progressive in usa nyc.
      Someone has hijacked our leader its either communists or drug cartels. Because we have same exact coordinated problem in north east.

  6. Don’t get me wrong, we in America love the British. After all, they are our parents. But we have some differences. A Queen in America has a different meaning than the one in the UK. American kids have meaning, fortunately most want to be successful in their own country with the greatest opportunity. We have some idiots and perverts in the mix, but they have rights too.

  7. It’s no wonder, in the UK English teenagers are being overrun by non Christian hostile immigrants from the middle East, India and Africa. The UK has lost its cultural identity which is based upon its Anglo-Saxon European Christian heritage.

    • Non english hostile immigrants have power by corrupt progressive in office who keeps geting stronger because citizens are barking on wrong tree.

  8. Moslems are not the only ones who can have a “Jihad”. We turned them away at the Gates of Vienna. We can again.

    The concept of Liberty and Justice is found in Christ. We are in a new Crusade.

    There is no excess in our defense of culture.

    • Try say that in your church. If its like my church youll see progressives usally the lesbian members has brain washed your church already.

  9. The Red Shield have run this country for around three centuries, slowly promoting dictatorship and communism, as the states over the last few decades, Nazism included. Depressing, to say the least. No God. No hope. Add in foreign invasions allowed without a shot fired… Destroying foundations of nations through peaceful or violent invasion. Easier to bring in a world govt.

  10. And if they vote to be a Socialist Country they will lose even more of their Freedoms and will most likely complain even more about destroying their lives

    • Guess what? YOU are “someone”; start doing, instead of complaining on line! Get involved in your local gov’t;attend meetings, speak out on the issues presented. Even consider volunteering for an advisory committee! Trust me, LOCAL Gov’t has more impact than you think!

  11. truly suicide is one of the sores we have a sadness for. life is precious, but there is this sadness MORE so that people are not looking in the right direction for the ONLY solution to all the problems permeating through out HUMAN SOCIETY. over 2000 years ago Jesus Christ, knew the answer to all the problems that ailing humans are facing today. with the multitude of problems including the taking of one’s own life, many people express that the world is in a ”MESS”…and getting worse. that being a matter of fact, then it should be clear that no one less than the ”MESS-IAH” ..CAN RESOLVE MATTERS….OH!… what Jesus said over 2000 years ago was…spoken by him at Matthew 6:10…” Let your kingdom come”
