    It could be attributable to a myriad of factors. Americanization, utopianism, anti-thetical to irony, pretense, pseduo-sophistication, being sold fake dreams, the kind of 'mind-change' Susan Greenfield refers to which seems to mean peoples capacity for emotional nuance is evaporating and being replaced with literal mindedness, or is it just general cultural neurosis and narcissism. Or all of these? It seems that one of our most prized and honed cultural traits is being wiped out(although that correlate with general trends)and as it was such a source of strength to us and realism, not to mention oiling the social wheels(I see it as intrinsic to a grounded and considerate way of life)it seems this can only be to the UKs detriment. Have you like I noticed generational shifts in this? Is it simply inevitable with globalization and all pervading Americanisms?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
