Why "Age of Majority" Should Be Lowered To 14

Most kids today are so dumb and ignorant and people never wonder why, people just say "well, there just kids". If you watch their behavior, it seems like the older they get, the more they act like children, and I'll tell you why:

1. Kids today are so overly babied by the "educational system", their parents and society in general, a child's brain is shaped by his/her surroundings and when they're being treated like a small child until age 18 (or in some areas, 21), they're brain shapes into that of a child.

2. The "educational system" (public schooling) fills the kids heads up with a bunch of bullshit academic curriculum which 95% of the kids will never even use in real life.

3. When they're a very young age (1 - 6), the kid's parents, school or some idiot will teach the kid a bunch of fairy tale bullshit (like santa clause, tooth ferry, etc) and it's not uncommon (at least here in America) to see kids believing in that garbage until they're 13.

4. Most parents now days monitor everything they're kid does until he/she is 18, if a kid has a problem with another kid, they're parents always have to get involved.

So, when they're stuck in school from the age of 5 to 18 or 21, are kept away from everything and can't even take care of they're own damn problems, do you really think that's good for they're development?

I've noticed people who work and take care of themselves at a younger age are much smarter than ones that stuck in skill focusing on their bs academic curriculum until 18 or 21.

It would also be better for the economy to lower the age of majority because the government wouldn't have to spend so much money on schools, "child protection services" which seems to mainly focus on keeping kids small children until 18 or 21, and many other things.

I'm not angry.

And from my personal experience, I don't think 14 is too young.

I barely ever went to school, smoked pot at age 10, had my own business in software engineering at age 13 and always took responsibility for my own actions.

sorry, seemed like you were angry about something..

14 yearolds are young kids.. i started working part time at 14 9months, as thats the legal age school kids can work in australia.. and it gave me money to spend as we didnt have a lot of money.. i dropped out of school at 16 and worked full time in an apprenticeship.. even at 16 i was super young.. maybe 16 would be a more suitable age, rather than 14.. i look at my nephew who is 16 and that kid is really young still.. some kids mature and have more street smarts at a younger age.. but the majority dont..

When i was young children use to dig in the dirt with sticks and play on metal playgrounds and ride our bikes without helmets and climb rocks and trees and watch the stars at night and go exploring out in the woods and not stare hypnotized into the digital eyes of dehumanizing machines all day...
