you can argue this latest youth generation is the least intellectual- ie employers state graduates nowadays are the worst educated in living memory, high levels of criminality of young people ( summer riots, student riots, stabbings, gangs etc) Consumer technology, social websites is all rather shallow but ultimately useful way of keep idle minds distracted.

I don't believe there's a government conspiracy if that's what you mean, rather as Asia and the west have begun to converge the demand for innovative products has increased which the educated west has provided. The next decades will likely see exponential growth as developing nations pour out educated graduates expanding the number of those developing technology.
