I suspect the amount who say they’re willing, and the actual amount who would participate would be vastly different numbers. Everyone wants to be a hoodlum until it’s time to do hoodlum stuff.
During the Great Depression in the US, one of the bigger justifications for the CCC (a large state sponsored public works program) was to keep the huge numbers of jobless young men from organizing and trying to overthrow things. They broke them up into lots of small groups, they "paid" them, but sent the majority of the money home to their families, etc.
One of the better predictors of whether or not a country is going to go to war is the number of men between 18 and 30; the bigger that group is, the more likely the country will initiate some sort of military action.
So, yea, this doesn't surprise me.
The amount of people in most of Europe surprise me. I mean, i also am not happy with my government, but would you really start a revolution, with all its consequences, about it?
Romania is 70+ % here because it is a country where the leaders (prime minister, cabinet, president) are all crooks who change the laws to decriminalize themselves. My country is awesome.
Would have been the same percentages when I was Young People circa late 60s to mid 70s and look what happened to my generation. There is a small window to accomplish massive change. By the late 20s, most people are beginning to turn into their parents.
It's hard to compare as accurately accounting for differences in language and culture is difficult. And if it was a self selecting sample then that's not an effective way to gather data. If the survey was in English then that would only be a subset of every country and not the whole country.
Plus you got undemocratic countries like Russia where people might be afraid of answering yes to a question like this.
i think it would be interesting if Catalonia was treated as a separate nation in this as there was a referendum about that last year. said referendum ended with police raiding the voting stations shutting down the referendum and (i think it was a while ago) also taking the ballot boxes.
I'm a bot, bleep, bloop. Someone has linked to this thread from another place on reddit:
[/r/europe] Percent of young Europeans who say they would "Actively participate in large-scale uprising against the generation in power if it happened in the next days or months" by country [OC] • r/dataisbeautiful
There are a variety of scenarios in which I'd rebel. For now I definitely don't want to, I like what leaders are planning and talking about doing.
Wish it had names on the countries. - American with two non-online masters degrees. I’m a living meme.
One of the reasons we breed less.
TIL the "Share a Coke" campaign—where Coca-Cola replaced its name on bottles with people’s first names —increased Coca-Cola's U.S. sales by more than 2 percent and, in doing so, helped reverse more than 10 years of decline in Coke consumption in the U.S.
Justin Trudeau told Donald Trump he would block his country’s armed forces from buying Boeing aircraft if the US presses ahead with plans to slap import tariffs of 300 percent on Bombardier aeroplanes.
First Sugar Tax in Mexico Cuts Soft Drink Sales by 6% - after the government imposed the tax, there was a 16.2 percent increase in water purchases by low and middle-income households, in urban areas and among families with adults.
