MILLAN LA RIVERA, Cecilia. Policy and collective dreams: members of the generation of the 70's and 90's . Ultima décad. [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.32, pp.37-59. ISSN 0718-2236.

The recent history of Chile has important milestones that have shaped our society, as was the Popular Unity period and the return of Democracy in Chile. Thus, in this research it is of interest in knowing the views of policy, and the dreams youth have about today’s society, two groups that have spent their youth in each of the periods mentioned. First, youth today who have been stigmatized as anomic, more distant from politics and motivations more diffuse and on the other hand the youth of the period of the Popular Unity, which was characterized by rebellion and real conviction to change the world. The methodology used is semi-structured interviews to eight people, four individuals who belong to these youth groups in the Popular Unity and four youths from the period of the return to Democracy. It concluded that there are important differences between both groups, modifying the youth group of 70 conceptions of society and politics that was about youth in the Popular Unity period and reflecting the youth group of 90 dominant discourse present. With regard to collective dreams in both groups we find anti-utopia.
