Youth and Politics
Politics is an unavoidable topic in everyday conversations, involving various groups, from young people to the elderly.  However, there is a trend where more older people are involved in politics than young people.  Several factors may influence young people's lack of interest in politics.  These factors include, among others, a lack of adequate political education, a sense of dissatisfaction with a political system that they may feel does not reflect their needs, and a feeling that their participation will not have a significant impact.  Apart from that, lack of trust in political leaders and political institutions can also be an obstacle.  Efforts are needed to increase political awareness and foster young people's interest in the political process so that they can become an active part in shaping the country's future.
This is usually due to the fact that the younger generation views politics as something that is unclear and full of excessive debates that only aim to gain sympathizers.  In addition, due to the many cases of slanted politics such as corruption and silencing of the press, the image of politics is increasingly declining.
Young people are indifferent to politics because they lack awareness of PKN itself. They are indifferent to existing democracy, because of the government's poor performance which makes young people distrustful.  Young people also tend to be divided based on their identity, because they only follow the current of a certain group, whether they are trendy or those who have the same identity (tend to be in their area of origin).
Young people may tend to be indifferent to politics because of differences in views and backgrounds regarding politics itself.  Some of those involved in politics may utilize the privileges they received from their parents as a background or stepping stone for their career.
There are several factors that influence young people's indifference to political issues.  First, a lack of Citizenship Education (PKN) education could be one of the causes.  Second, the existence of identity and cultural politics also contributes to shaping young people's attitudes towards politics.  Third, environmental background influences, such as family and peers, also play an important role in shaping their political views.  Apart from that, globalization and the way the media discusses politics also play a role in making young people apathetic towards democracy.
Overall, the lack of Citizenship Education (PKN), the existence of identity and cultural politics, and the influence of environmental background are among the factors that influence young people's indifference to political issues. Apart from that, the influence of globalization and how the media reviews politics also contributes to young people's apathy towards democracy. To increase the participation of the younger generation in the political realm, efforts need to be made to improve civic education, nurture political diversity, and create an environment that encourages understanding and active involvement in democracy.
