After extensive amounts of time, energy, and donor money spent, the Annenberg Public Policy Center has found that everyone just needs to cool down and be a little more chill.

Their study found that not only was everyone’s bad energy harmful for civic discourse, but it was also ruining the overall vibe.

Annenberg professor Dr. Nelson Dubois explained how their study was thorough and what the study’s findings say about our society as a whole.

“What we did was have our trained research fellows go out and observe people. They would look and see if people were like kinda chill and just vibing or if they were totally nutty and psycho,” Dubois said. “When the results came in and said that more people were acting nutso than those acting mellow, we knew we had to publish our findings. These results have the ability to explain what’s so wrong with our society and how everyone just needs to cool down a bit. Like for real.”

The results of the study have already made its way into the national headlines, with many major publications picking up on the story. Unsurprisingly, this has led to an increase in donor grants to the Annenberg Center.

Jeff Carlisle, who after hearing news of the study gave another $200,000 to the center, detailed how he felt his money would be put to good, effective use.

“With research like this, there’s no telling what the ceiling is for how impactful the Annenberg Public Policy Center can be. With ground-breaking research like this, they need every dollar they can get and I’m happy to give it to them,” Carlisle said.
