The Message of Youth in an Age of Revolutionary Change.
Garai, Josef E.
Youths' demand for radical changes in our society are discussed. Although their efforts are often misinterpreted as being destructive and unreasonable we cannot ignore the profound dissatisfactions of those whose main goal is to make the institutions which man has created responsive to man's basic needs. Most young people are aware of the hypocrisy present in our nation and other countries and feel emeshed in a variety of paradoxical situations and contradictions. The goals of the young generation have been summarized by Kenneth Keniston and include such objectives as a new orientation toward the future, new pathways of personal development, new values for living, new styles of human interaction, new ways of learning, new ways of knowing, new concepts of man in society, new types of social organization, new patterns of international relations, and new controls on violence. Proposals for the realization of these goals are presented and if acted upon may save us from nuclear destruction and help us lead peaceful lives in a liveable environment. (Author/RSM)
