Algeria: The Revolution Institutionalized

By John P. Entelis | Go to book overview

under eighteen years of age (along with an over 3 percent net annual birthrate) aggravates an already precarious situation.

Moreover, these groups seem most vulnerable to psychologically inspired and culturally motivated religious appeals. Their bleak economic futures are ensconced within an anomic sociopsychological environment in which family ties are disintegrating, sexual frustrations are increasing, crime and other expressive forms of personal disaffection are mounting. In fact, a general social malaise is imposing itself on all of Algeria's burgeoning urban conglomerations. Inasmuch as a socialist revolution is theoretically already in place, and both communism and capitalism in their "pure" forms remain unacceptable, only a religious Islamic revolution can successfully alleviate the growing sense of social isolation and personal alienation so evident among this current generation of youth and young adults. Much more so than the ineffectual political opposition abroad, these "disruptive dropouts" constitute a direct threat to the system's social stability and an ominous, indirect threat to its political viability.
