There'll be plenty of time to grow old and boring later. If you're not engaged in honest, direct, idealistic political activity while you're young, there's something badly wrong....
One of the regular cants from organs of Official Ireland and politicians alike is that young people don’t get involved in politics. In particular, they don’t vote, but they also tend not to get involved with political parties and great debates. Instead, they text opinions, go any which way on things like the tribunals and get excited quite arbitrarily about random issues.
