Creating a “Virtual” Young Generation Through Technology The third solution of aging societies for the problem of declining proportions of youth is far more radical. Modernized societies reconstruct many of the virtues and skills of young people through technology. They create a virtual childhood and youth by inventing machines and robotics that possess the productive qualities and labor power of young people. This process began in early periods of industrialization when the physical strength of young male workers and the handicraft of young female workers were replaced by machines.

While spending on schools and their efficiency (important for the young generation) stagnated, the efficiency and benefits of the public health system increased and improved dramatically, the main ones to benefit being the elderly (as their increased life-expectancy rate proves). Demographically, this contrasting development of the relative status of the young and the old may at first seem paradoxical. The longevity of the elderly is objectively increasing the burden on society, whereas the diminishing population of young people objectively lightens society’s load.

Since the nineteenth century, national societies in Europe have recruited young men for the army (Loriga, 1997). Their current value has diminished by the introduction of technological weapons, which only need the assistance of a relatively small professional army (which may now include young women), instead of whole generations of young men (Gillis, 1993). It is worth mentioning one significant failure in replacing the real younger generation by a virtual younger generation. Modern societies have been far more effective in replacing adolescents and youth than children.
