Comment on the following statement:
|Today young people think only about making money and career.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that young people only think about money and career nowadays whereas others don’t agree.
I think young people don’t only think about money and career these days. First of all, we have a lot of good TV programs and life examples where other values are described like, honesty, patriotism, sport achievements etc. It affects the minds of young people. Second, our historical heritage is not very money oriented. A Russian who was described by the classics is more a thinking and contemplating person rather than making money and career one.
At the same time there’re people who say that all teenagers are only thinking about making money and career like many on the west.
In my opinion these people have a point, this tendency is rather strong now. Nevertheless, I don’t think that it influences all young people. A lot of young people understand that money and career can’t make them happy so they learn how to be content with their lives with what they have.
In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support the conception of making money and career prevails for young people against those that say that other values drive young people nowadays, we'll see the facts that support the second opinion outweigh those against.
