When the Truth Isn’t Told

Mike Males is a sociologist and author whose writing has deeply influenced a lot of radical, committed youth workers, myself included. As my own analysis has opened up I’ve continued reading Males, primarily because he keeps digging further into the psyche of adultism in America today. His writing is powerful, as he continuously drills into the heart of the hypocrisy, alienation and cynicism that drives our society’s treatment of youth today.

Recently I visited his site, YouthFacts.org and learned another handful of reality. But perhaps the most poignant summary of his writing is his essay called, “America ’s news media—a cesspool of anti-youth misinformation“. That’s how Males tells the truth – straightforward, brutally honest and incorruptible. Thanks for doing what you’re doing Mike – we all need your guidance.
