I am still reflecting on a great article Young people are rubbish by Suzanne Moore in Wednesday’s Guardian
People my age should be embarrassed by this situation. Solidarity has to be cross-generational, not dismissed as some sort of youthful protest. We have to stop blaming young people for not voting. If there is no sense of a shared future – what we called civic society – and if people feel politicians are powerless in the face of “the markets”, they will not engage.
Looking at my children and the situation they all find themselves in, Suzanne Moore is spot on. Read it.
And yes, we are embarrassed.
