Is it philosophical that children now should be able to skip school for things like Environmental protests (U.K.)?
Is this good philosophy like Environmental Philosophy ?
"indoctrinating children" j153e… surely that wouldn't be right
& necessary as they already have the scientific facts. The
emergency would not go away, while killing off students future
freewill to peacefully protest.
(exactly..)..what I might have said P.
You could Even Pass -sometimes- for a good-non
relativist-philosopher now that you are getting the
"hang of it" (!)
So answer this...would YOU willingly go an join
such a protest ?
Without all the rigmarole that snafu requires..

Yes because their time and effort is probably going towards a good cause instead of what we’re systematically supposed to do; Though, does their protest really have an impact on the establishment at hand, because if not that would just be a wasted effort.... it all depends.

No. That would be principled.

It depends what you consider to be wise. eg. a survival course as part of the school curriculum might be considered wiser.
Generally adults act on the behalf of children in a protective and beneficial manner to allow them to learn and develop fully in their own way. Anarchic indoctrination and setting a bad example may not achieve the desired result with useful and responsible members of society
To me it seems to be more social engineering than philosophical

I think knowing how to protest effectively and responsibly, knowing ones rights, the law, propaganda as well as all the environmental concerns and how to mobilise passionate ideas in a democracy, would make for a great lesson in itself. If politicians want to engage young people in politics and the political process positively this would be a great way to start.

Make it a national holiday, along the lines of Japan's national "Greenery Day."
Indoctrinating children along those lines seems to give some a reason for being involved with something noble, a cause celebre, adding a dimension of meaning, a children's crusade.
