Lacking in Curiosity

But it's a major recurring experience to find American young people, in particular, very uncurious even about their own surroundings, let alone about anything more formidable.

(John Cleese in an interview, on the topic of how creativity happens, or does not. The full article can be read here. I'm posting this here because it seems to point at the root of something that comes up here a lot: What is wrong with the young people? I'm not sure Cleese gives any answers, but it is validating to see that we're not the only ones perceiving this to be the case.)
