We must be in the age of politically convenient?

young people not to go on the road, apply as a creative and as a system-critical power – is that so? It is in the nature, to sit in the old comfy couch? Because it is hoped that the youth to change the world for the Good? Or you can also develop in advanced age, fighting spirit?

dear Mrs. h.

There is at least an Argument that contradicts the claim that the Younger committed on the road, while the Older ones would always be more convenient: the voting and election participation. The does not decrease with age, but. The Old participate more regularly, the Younger more selective in the voting. So The young are not disinterested in General, politically. The Old but also does not generally "convenient".

with regard to the critical attitude of the Younger to be critical to the System, is tantamount to choose a left-green. Also, the AfD is critical to the system. At the last provincial elections in Germany, the AfD and the Green came with the electorate, and voters between 18 and 29 years to just over 20 percent. Even more AfD voters, the 59-Year-olds: In this case, the "critique of the System expresses itself" in a consent rate of approximately 30 per cent.

What I'm trying to say is that the simple division of the world engaged in the Young ( = , future-oriented, ecologically, technologically advanced), and Alt (= comfortably, firmly driven, reactionary, Umweltsau), the political reality does not reflect, but rather an ideological construct. In the "nature" is, in this respect anyway: In different societies and in different classes, the ratio of the Young and the Old, each is different, and it changes according to situations differently. If the older Generation is fighting in France for their pensions, is that not an expression of the future, anxious spirit?

There just is not a "future" beyond all social interests and differences. The now Living are not vicarious agents of the future society that just. The future can also mean a fascist utopia, nationalist, pure companies. One must therefore beware of a fetishization of the "future" and "future generations".

the future is not something, in light of all conflicts of interest must fall silent. The policy is part of it anyway, and conflicts with a view to the future, to negotiate. Part of it also concerns the living conditions of future generations – in a political way.
