“The generation of the 1960s confused revolutionary and libertarian ideas with their own personal contradictions. The generation of the 1980s witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall, experienced the charisma of John Paul II, and were more open to the spiritual dimension in their lives. The generation of the third millennium is the generation of the internet and social networks, the youth of the digital age.”
