What is the importance of young people in your country developing a sense of national belonging, patriotism and pride? How would these values help the development of your nation?



This is my answer to the Question which is on Quora.

There can be no other example of National Pride than that which can be placed within the reach of Young People by those who set themselves up as their Peers. It leads the way for young people to set for themselves the achievements and possibilities that their Nation can make possible for them.

Yet, what do they have as examples? Weak and ineffective leadership. Corruption. Social division. A weakness in enforcing Law and Order. A hypocrisy of intervention in wars which kill children. An acceptance of homelessness. A tolerance of absolute Poverty and a World Political System that devours the democracy of the people as if their human rights did not exist.

Our World Leaders are weak, ineffective, decisive and support corruption as if it were the New Black.

Even President Trump has failed to act on stopping the cancerous growth of Evil by Global Groups who peddle filth drugs and trafficking as if it were worthy of no more than a Parking Ticket.

The Youth of today need to demand an end to corruption and seek leadership that will achieve a World where ‘Crime does not Pay’.

Unfortunately, here in the UK a weak Tory Government and and ineffective Theresa May allow crime to run rampant as if it were not their responsibility.

Cutting Police and Health resources, allowing ‘Out of Control’ cyber-hacking and acting too little too late for widely-known sexual harassment of women in Parliament is not setting young people an example of National Pride.

Neither is ensuring they are not part of a developing European Culture by peddling Brexit as the new Nirvana when in fact it will become the UK’s worst ever Economic Disaster.

A sense of National Pride for young people is vital in seeking to maximise the Social and Economic benefits of a Nation and for preventing youth crime.
