The number of older people is increasing. Some people think it will cause problems in their countries, others believe this group is important to the society. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

In the present situation where the problems of the aging
are increasingly serious, it has been a debatable issue whether
a trend will prompt problems or not while others opine that the older population is an essential part of
. In
essay, I am going to examine the question from both points of view and
give my own perspective on the matter. On one side of the argument, there are people who argue the benefits of having the older population considerably outweigh its disadvantages. The main reason for believing
is that their long experience can help young people to understand the history of
world more effectively. The old people were witnesses of
world, and conveying information to successors is pretty ideal for their duties. It is
possible to say that older people are unlikely to be impulsive compared to young people and
characteristic can make
more stable.
On the other hand
, it is
possible to make the opposing case. It is often argued that the old age security pension can be a big burden for the modern generation. People often have
opinion because they believe that there are too many retired people, but too few young workers. A
point is that conscription is becoming alarming in many nations. A particularly good example here is that in South Korea, the 'Ministry of National Defence' warned that the country would be suffering from a lack of conscripts, which can make the future of the country vulnerable. In conclusion, I believe both arguments have their merits. On balance,
, I feel that the aging
can accelerate the falling of many countries and communities because young people have to load too many burdens, and there are so few young men to apply military service.
