What can be done to change middleclass tendencies in the Kenyan society so that they get out of their comfort zone of being passive in matters that concern them? Like finding comfort in memes when there is so much social injustice?

    The middle class is a varied class with peculiar behaviour … But today let me pick the middle class age bracket of 21 – 28 years (millennials) as an example (& not all of course, but a disproportionate segment that I have personally either observed or interacted with – maybe someone else has had a different experience): –

    – talented and exposed (to information) as they may be they are an entitled class, i.e. they strongly feel the world/people owes them in so many ways (success); they suffer from chronic impatience and want everything to happen instantly
    – they have a sense of narcissism cloaked as ‘personal philosophy’ and need constant recognition to exaggerate their accomplishments (suffer from severe low self-esteem) i.e. that’s why they often stay online seeking validity from the world with the internet as a buffer – always commenting & having an opinion about everything (& nothing?)
    – they are ‘spoiled brats’ in the sense that they do not feel they need to give anything but rather it is always what they can get …

    I fear for this generation because in 15 – 20 years time they will be fully mature adults but as such a demographic without a real sense of direction. [Sadly] this demographic is also the most prone to drug abuse, suicide and mental illness.
