Don’t underestimate rising tide of youth power
The race-and-religion labels and business-political power profiteering are being booted out by the rising tide of youth power, observes JD Lovrenciear.
(Aliran) – Die-hard politicians, their masters and ‘serfs’ (ie those on the payroll), seem to be completely oblivious to the realities of the world today.
The second half of the 21st Century is certain to see the rise of youth power reaching new heights.
Brute force by dictators using security machinery at their beck and call; laws to clamp down on youth power; the use of the deep state or institutions – none of these will be able to quell this phenomenal rise of youth power that we are seeing across the globe today.
Malaysia cannot be a unique exception. Those in the corridors of power must realise this quickly if we want to capitalise and tap this new, rising youth powerhouse for the benefit of the people.
