European youth seek revolution

Rebel Staff

Young Europeans-who are mostly Liberal- are sick of the status quo. In fact, according to a European Union sponsored survey titled, “Generation What?” millions of young people would take part in an uprising against their government if given the chance. 

According to the survey, 67% of youth in Greece would take part in a large-scale uprising against the government. 65%, in Italy. 63%, in Span. 61%, in France. 59%, in Czech Republic. 57%, in Wales. And 54% in Ireland.

Most of the countries mentioned have faced severe economic recessions like Greece whose youth unemployment rate is 34%. With so many unemployed youth in Greece, is it any surprise then that the far, nationalistic right [Golden Dawn] and the far-left [anarchist groups] are gaining momentum in Greece?

Many of the countries mentioned are going through versions of political populism like France with Marine Le Pen National Front. With the terrorist attacks in Paris and Nice, and the jobless rate in France grows or stagnates, is it any surprise then that the youth would be willing to join an uprising if it occurred?

The two major issues they’re facing are joblessness and a loss of identity. Good thing the European Union took this survey so they can know what the symptoms of the issues are. But it’s a damn shame that the bureaucrats over in Brussels will probably never realize that they are the cause of European joblessness and a loss of identity.

I did here figures for the youth figures in the French election that said 40% + of youth voted Le Pen and the elderly vote was for Macron? How does this fit in with this article?

Bill Elder says the young" are being replaced by a new demographic which is less demanding and expects far less."
I assume that the new demographic are the Muslims; if so can you explain how they are less demanding and expect less ?
It seems to me that the Muslims want everything, your welfare, then your Religion and schools changed to theirs, and finally your country, of which our Liberal Politicians are gladly handing over.

The dumb ones will riot in the streets. The smart ones will move to Hungary.

Bill Elder you got that right, the globalists throw them a few bucks to act up and doom their own futures and freedoms and they take it like happy trained monkeys.

They just realized they are the unwanted generation. The globalist system has no use for them, they are political and economic liabilities and are expendable. They are being replaced by a new demographic which is less demanding and expects far less.

The EU is responsible and is pushing the globalist (New World Order) agenda, and, I think the data they collect from their surveys will be used to formulate a plan to quell the unrest!

It is a shame that France was so apathetic for this very important election. Such a small percentage actually voted for globalism. But then it was likely a rigged election. Then lets look at Canada. The same here. If the west is to have any kind of normality for ourselves and our descendents. We must separate ourselves from the eastern liberals who are intend on controlling us and destroying our way of life.

I expect that we will see more chaos in the streets of Europe. The loss of jobs, precarity of employment, poverty, loss of identity, of being part of a country, are all consequences of globalism. And that is exactly the goal of the EU, the global elite and the mega corporations. Still, the Dutch and the French have voted for a continuation of the same. So endure now.

Just wait until Macron starts on his hidden agenda of turning France into an Islamic State. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

So the brainwashed youth who pushed for the ideology that created the problems want to overthrow the ones who they supported and did what they demanded?
Hey idiots you want to lay blame, go look in the damn mirror , you probably had a friggin cow when anyone spoke of sensible reforms which involved some level of personal responsibility on your part. So get bent you imbeciles.
