I suppose the most stunning result from the survey is the following result -

A mass uprising against the Irish government would be joined by more than half of young people in the country, a survey has indicated.
More than half of young people in Ireland 'would join a mass uprising against the government' | The Independent


As to be expected, with the self-destruction of religious organisations and the low numbers joining religious orders, there is a serious mistrust among young people of religion

Could you be happy without any religious belief? Yes 80%
Do you trust religious organisations?
Not at all
56 %
32 %
11 %
2 %
Totally

Other interesting results from the survey include -

TRUST IN POLITICS AND MEDIA Trust in the political class is rock bottom. 90% believe some, or all politicians are corrupt. Worst offenders are Greece and France which top the ‘all of them’ poll with 60 and 61%. The Netherlands and Ireland escape the best with only 22% believing ‘very few’ of them are corrupt.
IMMIGRATION Despite the growth of nationalism and populist politics, there is no appetite for a ban on immigration. Overall 73% believe immigration makes society richer – with particular support in Spain (85%), Germany (83%) and Denmark (83%). European women in general support immigration more than men by 75% to 69%, but young (under-19) UK males drag behind significantly, with only 42% in favour.
NATIONHOOD Fighting for your country gets a big thumbs down in the Generation What survey. 60% say they wouldn’t (with women leading the No vote in every single country polled, by an average of 66 to 53). The most enthusiastic male fighters are to be found in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Ireland.

Generation What is an interactive program produced by France Télévisions, Upian, and Yami 2 (together the ‘Producers’), in partnership with the EBU as well as 14 European broadcasters. In essence, it is an evolution of Génération Quoi, a large-scale survey conducted in France in 2013 to draw the portrait of the current generation of 18-34 year olds. This time, 10 countries have joined us for the purpose of making this program a truly European event: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Luxemburg, Holland, Wales (UK), and the Czech Republic.

The internet has absolutely crucified belief in all religions.
Anyone with the slightest of doubt can hop online and receive instant confirmation of their mistrust.
It not only solidifies their questioning, but provides ample other questions & answers to bludgeon church teachings.

The internet allows you to look up the truth.
The day of trusting someone out of 'faith' is rapidly coming to an end.
It's no longer necessary.

We're also living in a phenomenal age of advancement.
Science and technology are completely changing the way we live.
Religion just drags people back in time.
It has nothing of substance to offer.

Well yes, lots of them - which makes it a survey.
No doubt some of the figures are of use but the idea that 54% of young Irish people are ready to take part in a mass uprising against the government is not one I think is in any way credible.

I'm finding it genuinely difficult to get up to date figures but the ones I've found suggest that only 25% of people in the 18-24 age range do vote; hence my skepticism.

All the more reason to stop importing religious fanatics in from the third world who want to drag all of western society back to the stone age.

I wondering mostly about the self-selecting nature of the survey taker! Why did they choose to take the survey in the first place and how were they survey takers targeted?

We should put that question on the import forms - "Do you wish to drag all of western society back to the stone age?"
Would that question stop devout Roman Catholics from being imported?

Maybe the reason they say they would take part in a mass uprising is because they have decided that voting is useless? I would see the 25 per cent voting figure as confirming rather than negating the possibility that 54 per cent of them would join an insurgency.

There was very cute thinking behinf the decision, the appaling decision by FFGLAB, the treacherous Troika Parties, to rape the SW entitlements of people under 25 -

To do as they have always done, cull the populataion through emmigration and get rid of any elements that could pose a threat to the shytebags in power!:mad:

The other trick is to raise pension ages on private sector workers and reduce their pension entitlements in order to kill them off as soon as possible!:mad:

There are other reasons:

1. Extremist parties have made little or no impact on the political system. We have no far-right parties (thank God) and the far-left parties seem to be restricted to certain urban enclaves. Even the far-left here is pretty tame compared with their UK or continental counterparts - even if I have been criticizing them harshly here.

2. There's no tendency towards violent protest. When was the last major incident of civil disorder? I think it was the Love Ulster march 10 years ago. Even that was tame compared to what you'd see in the UK or on the continent.

The immigration findings are more nuanced:

......Almost a third (32%) voted to welcome all refugees whatever their reason for migrating, and a further 31% want to see refugees from war zones accepted. Migrants from developed and developing countries were not favourably perceived (1-2% each), while there was a 6% call to accept no refugees at all (led by voters in Ireland, the UK and Czech Republic).........

Fine Gael are a Far Right Party.

Trotskyites put off healthy people so lets forget about them. The reason I think you don't have a serious Far Left Party or a Patriotic Party such as Front National here is that plenty of people are still prepared to put their in the Shinners for radical change and the others are to despondent and lacking in hope to do anything at the moment but that could change radically.

You're a little too inclined towards introspection as a means to analysis rather than empiricism.
