Young Generation Knows The Best
By: Sitta Wahyu Qurana
The young generation is every person who is still as a child or teen and have their self-orriented at the present. The young generation knows better than the older generation because the young people live in the present rather than in the past or future. Present young generation is different from their parents’ generation and always be different. Why I say so, these are the following things in which both generations are different.
Today present generation is completely based on computers. Present generation very well knows the use of internet and chatting on computers. Present generation mostly prefers the use of computers. But most of the older generation do not depend on computers. Infact, I would like to say most of the parents do not know how to operate computers. In the present generation, even children are using mobile and other electronic items like IPOD, MP3 etc. On the other hand, our parents’ generation is still using land line connections and other simple instruments.
Furthermore, I would like to explain why the young generation knows the best. Well, nowadays, some people still think that knowledge depends on someone’s age. In their opinion, when we are getting older, we get more and more experience; however, sometimes old people have too little knowledge about the world to know much. The way I see it, the young generation knows best, they have a better connection with actual problems. Old men and women have safe and quiet life. They are not interested in problems which do not concern them.
In this case, I have three justification points of why I state that the younger generation knows the best. First, the young people are better educated and more broad-minded. Now, it is a must for the younger generation to study for at least 9 years (in Indonesia). It makes the rate of educated people increases and the product will be much better than the person who lives 20 years ago. Also, the young generation is more broad-minded because today they have more freedom than in the younger day of the older generation. Second, most of the young people want change and it is important to change in order to make the world a better place. Third, the younger generations have many new ideas and are often held back by the old who cannot think of new things as possibly good ideas. The world needs a generation who can make the world a better place through their great ideas and creativity. It is the task for the younger generations to make it comes true because they know the best.
