Talking about the future is usually depicted through two contrasting faces. The first is a dark, gloomy and pessimistic face. The second is a full of hope, bright and optimistic face. Extremism is a term used to describe a doctrine or attitude both political and religious in calling for action in all ways to achieve its objectives. Radicalism is the understanding or ideology that demands change and renewal of social and political systems by means of violence. The problem is not whether we are extremists, but what kind of extremism are we? Will we be extremists for hatred or love? Are we going to become extremists because we preserve injustice or because we fight for justice? All components of the nation must develop and strengthen the character of the nation, and are ready to face various challenges that come from within and outside our environment. If people and especially youth as the backbone of the nation no longer care about the noble values of Pancasila and are unable to uphold or implement them in daily life, then not only young people will receive the consequences, but the destruction of the nation will be at stake.
