Why was the culture of the early 2010s so shallow and anti intellectual?

I was just a young idealistic college student back then and most students I knew as well as wider society seemed more interested in reality shows, materialism, and partying.

Society also lost interest in sci fi and space.

I look back and find it appalling how vapid it was.


Why did society felt they had to choose between popularity and intelligence? Why did society stopped being encouraged to push themselves intellectually?


Why not be athletic, fun loving, and smart? Like those astronauts.

Wasn't it always like that, society in the 2000s and 90s was like that too, everyone wanted to be a gangster or thug. Now they are all still in prison or addicted to heroin.
