Young people are the future of a country. If they don’t get involved in politics, then who would rule the country in the future? Getting young people involved in politics is very important if a country wants to sustain itself in the future too.
The modern day world does not seem to have many young people who are interested in politics. Politics is still considered to be a father’s or grandfather’s or uncle’s interest. It is seen as something that can be postponed to become interested in when one reaches middle-age.
This is not true. Politics is for the young, middle-age, and elderly. As much as the elderly or middle-aged people are involved in politics, so too is the need for young politicians to rule a nation.
Almost every country has youth unions and youth leaders. But it only stops at that. The youth leader gets into the big league and stops encouraging youth activities. This happens to everyone and everywhere.
In certain countries, college unions elect youth leaders. But these leaders are seen in mock-interest by the more experience politicians. They either become a center of amusement or a source of rejection. Young politicians find it hard to break through the gateway of nepotism, so well guarded by experience politicians.
These things should not discourage us from getting the youth to become interested in politics. We need young educated people who have the creativity, humanity, and brilliance to rule a nation. We can only hope and pray that we have politicians from top-brass management colleges. Such a situation is awaited, because the world is fed-up with low-quality politicians.
