Young people are already burdened by our inequal pension system which gives fathers what they cannot give to their children, that is, to themselves
In recent weeks, young people have filled the squares with the cry of “swe raise the planet“(During COP26) and” we defend the rights of all “(after the failure of the Zan law). Noble principles that we fully support. But there is a but, which is that of the lack of pragmatism of this young generation that supports ideal and emotional battles, while it seems little inclined to battles more related to the present.
These young people, if they had a shred of economic culture they would flee from Gretha Thumber’s slogans, if they read more Franco Prodi or Chicco Testa would understand that the planet cannot be saved by renouncing tout court the principles of the market and common sense (destroying entire production chains would have enormous social costs), if they had an iota of institutional training would understand that it was the gamble of the secretary PD Letta to bury the Zan law (it was enough to make it survive with mediations loudly requested by some LGBT communities).
I would have expected young people to rise up in the face of recent claims by Landini on the need to allocate the eight billion from the tax cut, provided for in the maneuver, to employees and retirees. With all due respect, we still talk about widely protected categories (and unionized), never once then that you try to link resources and productivity, never.
Young people go ahead in the streets with the union against fascisms, but also go there to fight against the unionization that excludes them from the matches on the redistribution of resources that impact their personal and professional life. I remember that our young people are already burdened unequal pension system who gives to fathers what he cannot give to children, that is, to themselves.
But why not fight for some of these eight billion to go, for example, to young people for generalized and extraordinary scholarships (well beyond the usual tight resources)? Why don’t young people barricade this? Why don’t they pretend that you do stop loading future debts on them? Why do young people never go to the streets when the budget session opens and the budget items are decided? I close with an invitation from a well-known religious magazine that happens to find in our mailboxes: wake up!
