@Discomfoting: They're more interested in the ecological disasters we're facing, rather than the politics of countries. I would argue that the 50s youth were more interested in politics than the youth of now. Some might argue that they are quite apathetic.
But many teenagers would rather sit on their phone and be inactive in social activism of any sort. I'm also heavily involved in studying politics, not so much political action though. 22 out of 24 ppl in my class are apathetic.
@Comrade_Silly: I asked them the other day. Majority said they didn't care. I asked this Kiwi on his opinions on the upcoming elections and he was like "I support Labor, because majority supports it. And I can't vote, why should I care?" I'll repoll them again
@Discomfiting: I also go to an Int. School; kinda ironic because I'm a nationalist.
Your perceptions of which demographic or how many of this people or that are on a certain side based on people you bump into everyday is probably pretty skewed. If you go to upstate New York, you'll run into few libs, but if you go to New York City, you'll have a hard time finding many conservatives. That, and things have gotten so contentious that people don't like hanging around people who are political AND disagree with them.
