Many people are of the view that members of the youth community should be encouraged to enter politics but this has always been a debated issue. Let us have a feel of this issue to gain a clear insight and find out if the youth of today is actually ready and should take this big responsibility.
Young society members have often been accused of spending too much of their time on waste or notorious activities. Some of them do indulge in such activities but surely not all of them. The young Gen-X finds it easy to accept the blame rather than making an outcry to defend the truth. This creates a bad impression and this is one of the biggest reasons why political and economic veterans do not encourage the entry of youth in politics. However, truth is truth and cannot be hidden behind the walls of “myth” for long. Youngsters of today are excelling in every segment and the world of politics is no exception. From eminent names such as John F Kennedy (Youngest President of USA) to John Watson (Youngest PM of Australia), young guns have always shown that they can change the world with their refined approach whether the world accepts the fact or not.
Point to remember: While debating whether to allow youth to enter into politics or not, it should always be remembered that youngsters are harbingers of the new era of values besides being the torchbearers of their respective nations. They must be given motivation to take big responsibilities. However, the onus of understanding this fact and accepting the responsibility to free their native citizens from injustice, corruption, and divisive trends still lies with the youth who often choose to stay unbothered and reluctant to accept the task & must accept the responsibilities with willing hands.
Conclusion: Youngsters are ready to take politics but should be first encouraged to clean the “dirt” in politics and act for the betterment. Unless the youth is entrusted with responsibility and given due respect for their decision, the entry to world of politics would not be a possibility.
There is no doubt that youngsters can change the outlook of a nation in the best possible manner but the direction to make the change should be encouraged by the experience of “veterans”, who must be more than willing to handover charge of their responsibilities to the young members of the society so that every nation of the world can be a prosperous and happy one. That was all from our side, keep reading!
We hope that this blog on entry of youth in politics was useful to you in more than just a way.
