When the 32-year-old Emmanuel Macron and the 72-year-old Donald Trump were elected the President of France and the U.S. respectively, we can feel the difference in attitude of the two countries towards the age: Young people are probably more valued in France than in the U.S..
Of course, the youth have every reason to be valued in any culture. They are the most creative and energetic population. It is no exaggeration to say that young people are what keeps the world going. Yet, with their experience and knowledge, old people are also a valuable asset for any nation. If young people keep the world going, then it is the old who keep the young people going.
However, it is often found that, in some cultures, the youth are more valued, while in others, the old are more respected. The difference, I believe, mainly arises from the traditional values of a given culture. In East Asian countries such as China, Japan, and Korea, for example, people of the old age are often looked up to and have the final say over many important issues, while in many European countries such as France, Germany, and Swede, the important government positions are often held by young people, because people in these countries traditionally trust young people more than they do the old.
The difference in attitude towards the old age and the youth alsoreflects the immediate needs of a particular culture. If a community suffers from the serious aging problem, young people will be more valued to keep the community competitive. By contrast, in a community overwhelmed with young people, the old age will be more valued to keep the community harmonious.
To sum up, both the old age and the youth should be valued, yet whether any one of them is more valued depends upon the traditional values and the immediate status quo of the culture under discussion.
Our world is a diverse place with a myriad of cultures and beliefs. One area of discussion is the value the young and old possess in society. Some believe that senior citizens should hold a higher position out of respect for their wisdom, contribution and experience to the nation. Others, however, consider teenagers and those in their twenties should be recognized for their fervor and greater dynamic potential. From my point of view, all people regardless of age, have beneficial atlributes and so should be considered accordingly.
To begin with, it is said with age comes wisdom, thus il is a maturily in ihe decision-making process that cannot be acquired from books, but only after a lifetime of careful observation and understanding. Moreover, the elders tend to err on the side of caulion, by weighing all options and alternatives. Therefore, many appreciate the trusted conclusions and the deliberate, yet measured way forward.
Nevertheless, the young cannot be dismissed due to their age, as they epitomize not only new hope, but also fresh possibilities for the future. Their boundless energy can challenge the status quo of the old guard, and so lo seek a new path. While some may resist change, the call for a generational transformalion in society often drowns out the dissenting voices, which lack foresight in this faced paced technological world.
To conclude， I believe that a society certainly needs the steady hand of senior people as wise choices should be treasured. In addition, the young needs to be heard. It is their vigor which will forge a new esprit de corps that needs to be nurtured, and move society forward, though under a watchful eye.
