I have an idea that will take this off the beaten path...
I was discussing just today that phrase "kids are our future".
It is an important phrase because who first said it shows a lot about the other people who say it and why they say it.
Hitler was the first person to use that phrase politically, he announced to Germans that "Children are the future" not "our" or any such thing,
but "the" and he spoke to the children, the Hitler Youth. His goal was that they believing they had the power not the adults, because they are the
future not the adults, would be more patriotic, more concerned.
And they were, many turned in their parents at the drop of a hat when they spoke anti-nazi things.
The Democrats sure ran with this slogan later on didn't they???
Anyways...the idea of youthful presidents is no different with this respect, socities that don't respect the past, are simply doomed to be cruel, and
barbarous, and short-lived.
