The Estrangement of Youth and the Quest for a different Society

Franco Ferrarotti

Abstract:
The author contends that any contestation or countercultural movement, no matter how generous, is bound to failure unless it develops as a rational project. Violence, as such, might help visibility, but, in the last analysis, it amounts to nothing more than self-gratifying narcissism, incapable to produce positive results, even less to satisfy the request of present day youth for a different, more open society.

Keywords:
estrangement; violence; open society; new community
