So that would be a "yes", then. Thanks.

Every new generation is as bad as the last.  The old must have something to complain about.

True, but not bad in the same way.  BTW - the videos are about descriptive sociology, not about politics, moralizing or virtue signaling.

A full quote ...

Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

More from the British past ... Boomer socialization ... no "Ask not what your country can do for you ..." but "What is in it for me".

Is growing up the enslavement of the child, or his/her liberation into responsibility?

Bad music, bad drugs, bad politics and bad sex aren't freedom.  Though bad music, other than deafness and public annoyance (boom box) is the least damaging.

Growing up is hard, and responsibility sucks.  I like to be childish (in a "sand box") myself.  I try not to damage my neighbors.

Wouldn't Leftists be in favour of Hobbits, since they are both minorities and (whatever the politically correct term for height-impaired people is nowadays)?

The real Left is a cat's paw for the Deep State (Sauron).  The actual British satire on this, the British Left are shown protecting the rights of Orcs, their roving and man-eating ways, and their cultural habit of worshipping "The Flaming Eye" (see dollar bill).  The Hobbits are like White S African farmers being murdered by Bantu marauders.  LOTR is definitely pre-civil-rights era where Black is Beautiful.  The satire goes on to say how misunderstood Saruman is, and what villains the Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves and Men are.  Gondor and Rohan need open borders now!

Sociology was originally a late 19th century political movement in academia, that was trying to make Marxism respectable.

Why do you think that?

Research into the Positivist political agenda of the academics who founded it.  This was Fabian communism.  We did get public schools more and more as we go into the 20th century.  My father's father was still unusual, to have completed HS, in 1916.  The government schools (rather than religious) and the movement after 1900 to remove religious control from governance of universities and colleges, and mandatory chapel for students ... are all part of the secular progressivism we know as Progressives (see Wisconsin/Minnesota) from 1920.  Gradual, non-radical reform along the lines immigrants from Scandinavia were looking for.  This is why Minneapolis is burning now.

The narrative of utopian sociology is ... The Foundation, by Isaac Asimov.
