Democracy and Children in Maldives

My #DQT moment today was with a child. In a #heart2heart conversation that we had, the child said that grown ups were all the same. That we were too preoccupied with politics all the time. The child said that we grown ups always talk about their party and the other party and the leaders they love and the leaders they hate. That grown ups were corrupting the minds of young people. This when asked, what friends of the same age thought of politics and who they supported.

According to the child they had no leaders they liked. They made fun of the leaders and one another. To them, once elected to leadership positions what they were concerned about was only how to get things better for them, and getting higher paying jobs for their family and friends.
