Or at least that’s what the latest “Generation What?” survey taken by a German media group indicates to me: More than 70 percent of the young people here have no confidence in politics.
When asked about political institutions, only 27 percent replied that they “more or less” had confidence in them. Only one percent asked said they trusted these institutions completely.
They were nearly as skeptical when it came to confidence in religious institutions and in the media itself.
Mehr als 70 Prozent der jungen Menschen ohne Vertrauen in die Politik.
