The "young" in Young Politics is not meant to be understood prima facie , although we do want to know what the "future old," are thinking about and what the "recently young" think now and thought "then."

Young Politics presupposes that in general, political thought has a natural arc throughout a lifetime. Whenever possible, this paradigmatic approach is applied to age demographic fissures.
Hilary thinks about politics as a reflection of our fears, aspirations conscious and latent desires. In her world, the how and why of policy creation and rhetoric are greater than symptomatic legislative outcomes.
Young Politics' primary rubric for analysis is good old fashioned logic, and empirical data.
We're shaking off left and right and using good sense to evaluate political thought.

It's cliche, but it's the truth.
