This dissertation analyses the new characteristics of patriotism of Post-1980s generation in China. The analysis is based on a carefully-designed research process. The findings are focused on the research questions. The new patriotism of Post-1980s generation in China has been presented by newspapers. The secondary aspect of the current study concerns the impact of media to the young people.
The Post-1980s generation has grown up in a different environment compared with older generations. Rapid economic development and the information boom have had a key impact. Based on this current study and personal experience, criticism of the Post-1980s generation lasted more than ten years. But the media suddenly changed their view overnight. The Post-1980s generation became a hopeful generation in the media. Different from their parents, they do not believe everything the state says like their parents. The results were got from the different voice from the internet and BBS in China. They could keep loyalty and love for the country but questioned it at the same time.
