Between young people and society there has always been a sort of war: on the one hand, society has its interests, its rules; on the other hand, the young fighting to become somebody and to get other people to recognize their ideals. Once this was transformed in protests, there were demostrations, the young lived on the streets, they refused to work. It was the period in which the young rejected society completely because they saw it as something absurd, amoral, bad and un fair towards them. In this way, while approaching the Eighties, there were fewer reasons to demonstrate and they have become speeches to make only at times, without making public demonstration any more, nor anything else. This change has been encouraged partially by the economic welfare which has more or less affected everybody. Even society has changed too, both in appearance and in its values. A more relaxed atmosphere has changed the way of living in society. As a matter of fact, the young demonstrators of 1960s have either disappeared. The new young people of the Seventies have learnt the lesson, they do not contest anything, they do not want to change anything, they do not want to make a devolution, and they do not know Marx or other idols of the past. Today’s young people only want to be simpler, they are not in search of problems, but they try to live well without politics or particular social  obligations. They protest for their ideals, and their ideals are a good job, a good car and a happy family. So the relation between the young and socity has changed a lot and it will still have to change. Our young people are intelligent enough to make the right choices. They are brave and intelligent. The future belongs to them.
