A recent survey conducted by the Cato Institute has revealed a startling revelation regarding the views of Gen Z Americans. The poll, which involved 2,000 participants, sought to gauge public sentiment on the government’s potential implementation of surveillance cameras in every household as a means to combat crime and abuse.
Nearly one-third of Generation Z Americans support the idea of installing government surveillance cameras in every household, a survey found. https://t.co/a4saelUHGp

According to the findings, a mere 14 percent of Americans expressed support for this invasive proposal, representing approximately one in every seven respondents. The overwhelming majority, constituting 75 percent, expressed strong opposition, while a modest 10 percent remained undecided.
However, among individuals below the age of 30, an astonishing 29 percent or nearly a third of participants voiced their support for the idea. In stark contrast, only 20 percent of those aged between 30 and 44 expressed approval for such extreme government surveillance.
Interestingly, the survey also highlighted varying degrees of support across different ethnic groups.
Hispanics displayed a relatively higher level of approval at 25 percent, while the highest level of support came from the black community, with an impressive 33 percent expressing their favor. On the other hand, whites exhibited the least amount of support, closely followed by Asians.
These findings align with other polls that have shed light on the distinct differences between generational groups within the United States. A OnePoll survey conducted in January discovered that approximately 24 percent of Millennials had their rent paid for by their parents, slightly exceeding the national average of 19 percent.
Moreover, Gen Z workers have even highlighted generational disparities in their interpretation of certain emojis, deeming the “thumbs up” symbol as “hostile” and “super rude.” Pollster John Della Volpe has identified Gen Z as a challenging demographic for Republicans during the midterms.
These sentiments underline the potential impact of Gen Z voters and their dangerous views on political landscapes. The Cato Institute’s poll serves as a valuable glimpse into the mindset of young Americans, and their willingness to hand over their privacy in exchange for 24/7 surveillance.
As this up-and-coming demographic continues to shape societal dynamics, their preferences, and concerns are bound to have a significant impact on the future freedom of the American People.
