Why should young people be interested in politics?

Young people are the cause of society and the confidence of the elderly. Even though the majority of them are of the unproductive age because they are always studying or are still studying, they should think about politics. The word politics is often used in a negative sense but hardly ever in a positive sense. A lot of young people are politically passive but young people who are already voting need to express freely their political opinions among themselves. It is commonly believed that the majority of young people are not actually politically illiterate but political pessimists. Many adults think that young people are only interested in d2 items, playing video and mobile games, and the like and not in politics.

Political pessimism among young people

Political pessimism reigns in lots of countries and that is why numerous people do not like to vote. Even though young people do not make up the majority of the electorate and there are fewer and fewer young generation, they form a substantial part of the electorate of some parties around the globe. The young people who study become productive in a certain electoral term. So, the argument: “This does not concern me” is bad because politics affects every eighteen-year-old person. Politics affects every person due to the fact that politics is everywhere, whether you want it or not. It affects not only the school but the parents as well.

Young people should bring responsibility for the state

Young people become responsible and as they mature, they bring responsibility for the state as well. It does not have to be politics but work or school. Young people take on this responsibility, whether they know it or not. It is very important that they are educated in political activity. As already mentioned earlier, it does not have to be engagement in politics or any political and party undertakings but every matured person also has a share in politics through voting. But the politicians are the representatives whom you have elected and this is written in the constitution. This is the reason why young people should be interested in politics.
