Young people are leading the change

Increasingly, young people are stepping up and leading the change.

From gun control in the US to calling for political reform in Thailand, from Greta Thumberg’s global climate movement to Malala’s fight for women’s rights to Joshua Wong and Agnes Chow’s courageous activism in Hong Kong.

Even here in Singapore, young people are and have spoken up against racial discrimination and in support of political diversity.

In Thailand, students are now questioning the political power which the king has amassed for himself in recent times.

Even raising questions about this can get you jailed.

May young people continue to lead the change we need.

  • ManOfSin:

    Bullocks. They can tear down, which is inevitable because the day of reckoning will come. PAP govt conceived and founded by the old man will not stand up to “the storm” because no nation, if they truly want to prosper, is an island.

    Since the politics of man is divisive and treacherous, no nation can effectively unite and prosper.

    Apart from that, there are so many odds against nation builders.

    You need the “keys”.

    Show me the “keys” otherwise you are fighting your own shadows and forever under the feet of the rich elites.

    one day for sure, it’ll happen here too.
    i can just feel it.
    its inevitable seeing how things are going with this arrogant bullying gov in power.
    i think no where on this planet (i may be wrong), where one political party dominates and wins the majority of votes for more than 50 decades in a stretch!
    enough is enough!
    change is good.

  • Idealism:

    Young has idealism..and courage…and not much responsibility.
    Good to be social active and fight for just causes when they still has the energy and idealism.
    let the young lead…the older one has given up.

  • 61% cotton sheep:

    after GE2011, we thought Singaporeans are now mature and educated to see through pap rot.

    then came the GE2015 reality.

    worse, despite all the increases, increase in water, electricity, carpark parking, and number of mouths from ceca ah neh land, GE2020 everyone with eyes still can see the 61% stupid sheep in pap island.

    61% sheep continues to produce cotton for pap.

    so are young people leading anything?

    in Thailand, yes.

    in pap sheep land, no.

  • oxygen:

    A FART-SMELLY REALITY hit the carefree faces of the YOLO generation, coming out to the world of independent survival struggle. They are facing a mountain of uncertainty and turbulent challenges unprecedented in history (saved of war years) their schools/universities have NOT taught them.

    A lot in Sinkieland had their parents holding the hands before and in marriage but now that ATM life-line support is cut off as well. Other than economics, they face climate change perils and political oppression abetted by the vile use of technology by dictatorship rule and mindlessly endless greed of exploitative big businesses.

    Many are lost in the zombieland.

    Not surprising we are seeing the greening of a new generation of political awareness of their law and human rights.

    I am constantly reminded of Charles A Reich – Greening of America.

    IT IS A GOOD THING – BETTER THAT THEY SHAKE UP SLEEPY USELESS ROTTING ESTABLISHMENT AND INSTITUTIONS – the dumbfarked lot thinks disruptive “technology” will save the day for them – and throughout history of civilisation showed it never did.

    Countries that resist this new consciousness will die in the age of escalating turbulent change.

    EVEN COTTON ON SHEEP’S BACK HAVE FINALLY ADMITTED THAT THOSE THAT SIT TIGHT AND WAIT FOR THE TIDE TO ROLL PAST THEM will die in this Covid-19 pandemic sweep through.

    IT IS CHANGE OR YOU DIE!!!

  • Young:

    Good to let the young lead the change..
    They do not know what is fear…
    Reality has not tampered their idealism yet…before they are sicken by the inequality of life.The big gap between the elite and the common man.
