Che Cho Posted almost 3 years ago Do young people have a valid role to play in national and international politics? I think young people always played a role in politics. If you look at big revolutions and wars, you will notice that these are only possible when there are enough young man to fight. A demographic pyramid with a big base of young males seems to be necessary to certain political developments. Take for example the spring revolution this year in arabic countries, you will find a lot of young people there, or the population of germany before the two world wars. The question wether young people decide about political issues or not, is another discussion, but at least they affect these decisions, by just "being there".
