We released the 2nd issue of our Aspen.Review quarterly in the brand new design, now with the title Generation Lost & Found: Visegrad Youth refuse to become their parents and don’t care about Fukuyama’s liberal end of history. Young people vote significantly less than Generation X and grasp the revolutionary year of 1989 as simply another historical event. Still, they seek for happiness at super competitive European single market. Let them live their dreams. Let them grow up for politics. Read more on the Aspen.Review website!
To reach young people, politicians have to function as a kind of social hubs. Members of the new generation do not like to hear common places, because they can check everything on the Internet in two minutes – Szilárd Teczár
Young people have nothing against the liberal democratic system, but from their perspective it’s a battle previous generations have fought and won and they see no need to give much thought to how this came about and what needs to be done to maintain it, because they believe it’s working, somehow – Martin Buchtík
Along the articles tackling the issue of today’s youth you also can find more general topics such as the role of the Internet by Walter Isaacson or the EU–USA relations in the interview with Kenneth R. Weinstein which we already released as a teaser for this issue.
The Web is no longer a place of community, no longer an agora. Every day more sites are eliminating comments sections – Walter Isaacson
By publishing analyses, interviews and commentaries by world-renowned professionals as well as Central European journalists and scholars, the Aspen Review quarterly presents current issues to the general public in the Aspenian way by adopting unusual approaches and unique viewpoints.
We are living in the era in which traditional tools of social sciences and humanities may need reassessment. Polling data repeatedly proved unreliable in predicting results of elections and referendums – Małgorzata Fidelis
