    Re: Should Society Eliminate Age of Majority?

    I say leave the 16 year olds alone. They're ignorant, inexperienced, have absolutely no capacity to appreciate talent and they have algebra homework to do (if they're in the advanced class). They can't talk about anything except the Disney Channel and Twilight. What self-respecting person chases that?

    Men who want HS girls are looking for an easy judge and someone they can easily dominate. They are not looking for a partner, teammate or anything of the sort. Basically, disgusting little men who think they have no alternative but to turn to children for validation.

    The vast majority of people are finished (note: not "started") mental and physical puberty at 18. Anyone who wants to chase younger girls is a sick perv who should be jailed (probably permanently) for the good of society.

    No thanks.
    That doesn't negate the possibility of someone using your philosophical class for their own purposes.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    How can someone use philosophy for special interests outside of pragmatism?

    I was thinking about older people really. There are lots of 30, 40, 50+ year olds who don't think before they act beyond appeals to seniority.

    Society should relegate them to childhood until they learn why things are important rather than doing things just because they like it.

    No fraud, no provocation, no intimidation, duress, harassment, etc.

    Yeah, I bet your just a wonderful romantic who's out to save those kids.

    Who says they'd use philosophy? I said they'd use the class. Do you actually believe that because you use the word philosophy that that will stop people from deviating from your honorable intentions?

    I'm calling BS. That would have been in the OP so as to dispel the creeps it gives.


    should society eliminate age of majority
    That does NOT imply that the topic is people 50+, as the age of CONSENT has no affect on them. So why remove it for them?

    I don't see how people can qualify as philosophical while being dishonorable.

    It's pretty easy to detect psychopaths. They make appeals to pragmatism in order to intimidate others to do their bidding.

    Considering I advocate family values so much in order to prevent parental negligence, your bet is right on the money.
