In this chapter the author discusses the need to educate new generations. Millennials have become a disaffected generation. Therefore, he pleads for the introduction in the curriculum of “democratic education” in secondary schools, in which not only information is given, but the emphasis lies on lively debate and discussion – a model proposed by John Dewey and Robert Dahl. Another proposal is to lower the voting age to sixteen – this because it would give a logical conclusion to the “democratic education” curriculum, and also because at this age voting can be made a lifelong habit.
