Yet the activities they prefer make them lonely and miserable.

According to a new survey of millennials, reading books, using cash and talking on the phone are some of the signs that you are “living in the dark ages.”

Yes, really.

They poll of 25-40 year olds was conducted by Energy retailer Love Energy Savings.

Using cash was the top answer, with 28 per cent of millennials believing that something that was commonplace as little as 10 years ago (and still is in many countries) is a sign that people are completely out of touch.

Presumably, only using digital payments that encourage you to get into more debt and which can be more easily tracked and traced is trendy.

Another one of the top answers, chosen by 18 per cent of respondents, was “reading books,” which despite being linked with increased happiness and carrying obvious educational benefits, isn’t cool.

Going to church and talking on the phone are also seriously ‘dark age’ activities, according to millennials.

The answers aren’t that surprising given the fact that millennials are so unhappy, with deaths of despair soaring amongst the age group, which is more depressed than any other generation.

Maybe if they actually talked to people more instead of sending disappearing Snapchat texts or read books instead of flipping idly through TikTok videos for hours, they’d be more content.

Maybe if they went to church instead of spending all day indoors watching mindless YouTube videos, they’d also be more cheerful.

As we previously highlighted, a different survey revealed that almost a quarter of millennials say they have no friends while 30% say they are always or often lonely.

Maybe if they reduced their obsession with activities that exacerbate those problems, feelings of loneliness and alienation would be greatly reduced.

South African Cricket Players Ordered to ‘Take a Knee’ Before T20 World Cup

Despite it being against some players’ religious beliefs.

South African cricket players have been ordered to ‘take a knee’ before their team’s T20 World Cup matches despite some of the players complaining that it violates their religious beliefs.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) issued the directive last night after some of the players refused to perform the pro-BLM virtue signaling gesture before a match against Australia.

“South African players of color knelt and raised a fist, while fast bowler Anrich Nortje and wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen put their hands behind their backs and maintained a distance from their playing cohort,” reports Breitbart.

The CSA announced it had “unanimously agreed to issue a directive requiring all Proteas players to adopt a consistent and united stance against racism by “taking the knee” prior to the start of their remaining World Cup matches.”

The body said it was enforcing the order due to “the lack of support for the initiative” for the “BLM initiative,” especially given “South Africa’s history.”

That phrasing is interesting given controversy over professional football players in England taking the knee, with advocates claiming it had nothing to do with the Black Lives Matter organization and was merely a non-political stand against racism.

The Courier-Mail reported that some South African players refused to ‘take a knee’ because the gesture was “against their religious beliefs” and that “a good Christian man only takes a knee for two people – his wife and his God.”

The gesture was widely adopted by professional sports teams in the aftermath of last year’s deadly riots following the police killing of George Floyd.

Meanwhile, spectators attending the T20 tournament were made to isolate in what some described as “sheep pens” to safeguard against the spread of COVID.

DC Comics Artist Quits; Says Woke Superman Dropping ‘The American Way’ From Motto “Really Pissed Me Off”

“I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

An artist who worked for DC Comics has quit saying that he is “tired of them ruining these characters,” including Superman, after the company dropped ‘the American way’ from the hero’s famous motto.

Colorist Gabe Eltaeb revealed on a recent podcast “I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

“What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world. F*ck that; it was ‘truth, justice, and the American way,'” Eltaeb further stated.

“My Grandpa almost died in World War II; we don’t have a right to destroy sh*t that people died for to give us. It’s a bunch of f*cking nonsense,” Eltaeb urged.

The artist, who worked on the much maligned “Son of Kal-El” Superman books in which Clark Kent’s son comes out as a bi-sexual social justice warrior, also spoke about the abuse he has been subjected to for his opinion on the comic book characters being ruined.

“They call us bigots and racist and sh*t,” Eltaeb noted, adding “I would ask them, find me in the f*cking mainstream, not on the fringes, one f*cking book, one f*cking t-shirt, one movie that says that leftism is bad, and conservatism is good, find it for me, they f*cking won’t. They’re not letting people have a voice, they’re the f*cking bigots.”

The podcast host Ethan Van Sciver added “You cannot come out and be a conservative and criticize the company that you work for in this way. You have to be completely supportive of the corporate agenda, whatever it is.”

“You have to keep your negative or critical opinions to yourself, and it’s so liberating to be able to not work for DC comics and be able to say exactly what you think,” Sciver emphasised, adding “And I think that’s what Gabe is going through here.”

    Leftist media outlet says Squid Game was successful because there weren’t any white people in it.

    (The show was made in South Korea and the entire cast, apart from one dude, is Korean).

    Journalists can’t even judge the quality of a piece of art without first filtering it through their insufferable oppression olympics purity test.
