some of the most innovative ideas the world has ever seen comes from the minds of people older than 35.
although opinions vary, more research shows that the human brain is not mature until their mid 20's some even say 30's or 40's like the article
below. which is a bit dated comes from 2010.
The research could explain why adults sometimes act like teenagers, sulking or having tantrums if they do not get their own way, and why some people
remain socially uncomfortable until they are well out of their teens.
Brain is not fully mature until 30s and 40s
young folks think that they know every thing, which they don't. knowledge and wisdom come with age. i would not want someone young that has not been
alive long enough to have seen and experienced enough of life to make decisions on laws that effect the well being of a entire country.
sure there have been some mature younger people, those have been the exception not the rule. just let me ask you why do you think the military wants
young people, and it's not just because that they are more physically fit, it's because their minds are more easily manipulated than older peoples
minds. this is a quote from my drill instructor when i was in the Corps. " you will be amazed at what a 17 year old can do, with a M16 in their
hands" and how you can motivate them into doing it"
. that has stuck with me all my life, mainly for the fact i was 17 when i heard it. i didn't
fully understand it until i was well into my thirty's. i knew what he meant by training them to fire and attack, but the fact that someone that young
is more easily brain washed, or should i say fooled into a ideology. now don't misunderstand, i think every young person older than 21 should serve,
that gives them a little time to grow and mature.
no one should be allowed to serve in a public office, military, or anything thing that has to do with the serving the public,in a authoritative type
position until there is some sort of maturity test to see if they are ready to hold that kind of postilion, and are well past the age of 30.
it's true that young people are the future, but if they are going making a bunch of dumb a@@ laws what does good does that do. of course it would be
compounded more with all of the lobbyist that are throwing money at them.
another thing, have you ever watched those worlds dumbest videos, the majority of the people in them are younger than 30. ever wonder why.
i know that i didn't become shorter than ten foot tall, and vulnerable to bullets, until i was almost 30.
