"The blind leading the blind" sums up pretty much the whole advice/inspo influencer economy, though! Where would we be without it, especially during a health crisis???
Of course it isn't fair to place all the blame on age - people of all ages do this from a place of (at best) naivete. Yesterday a bunch of famous people decided it would cheer us up to watch a collage of them singing from inside their Hollywood mansions. If anything better illustrates the value an idiot assigns themselves from a position of power, well, I don't think I have the stomach to watch it. What were we talking about?
