I believe that youth now a days are way too apathetic and narcissistic to make a difference in the world.
Recently there has been many surveys taken, these show that since 1982 Levels in narcissism had risen by 30% .
Without a doubt, we all realize that in this new generation we have been exposed to very much more garbage shows on TV , these are shows such as jersey shore. This does influence us to be like them in some extent which is a factor to some of the percents listed above. This is because without a doubt the people on those shows are the representation of the new generation for new kids and everybody , they influence everybody!
I don't know where the generation is going yet but it is definitely not going in a good way by the looks of the whole new youth are just overall very lazy and self centered.
This is my opinion.

"Recently there has been many surveys taken, these show that since 1982 Levels in narcissism had risen by 30%."
There is no way to confirm these statistics because you didn't post and sources.

"This does influence us to be like them in some extent which is a factor to some of the percents listed above."
TV personalities can influence people to some extent, but it is up to the person to decide if they want to pursue university then apply for a prestigious and well paying job, shouldn't that be enough incentive for one to not be apathetic? I believe narcissism doesn't drastically change if our youth can change the world or not, vanity does not change the fact that we can change the world. For example if a doctor or an aspiring doctor was very narcissistic it would not change the fact that they may be one of the hardest workers in the world. So this is why I believe our you is NOT apathetic or narcissistic.
