Abstract: In this article, Grazio V. Ellul expresses an opinion about the life of young Maltese people in the 1940s and the 1950s, when youth was marginalised and forced to adopt a spartan, stoic living by their authoritarian elders. "Born the 1940s and 1955, young people in Malta between 12 and 25 years were under the tutelage and benevolent control of the Church and their parents. The State, up to the late 1940s, was not of much concern to most people [...] What Church, State and parents had in common was that none of them did happiness".
