Perhaps in a country with traditions like France or Italy, it might make sense
to lower the drinking age. There they have a tradition of drinking a small
glass of wine at family dinner, kids included. This is a very healthy habit, so
much so that people in part because of this tradition of drinking red wine all
their life live longer than Americans. (the other part is they use olive
oil).But here the youth who do drink, have bad traditions, not good
traditions. Here kids binge drink.What is good for the goose is not
always good for the gander.
Ok, if we're going to treat 18 year olds like kids, lets make it 21 for all
adult rights. 21 to marry. 21 to vote. 21 to go to war & get killed. 21 to
tithe. Still sound good to treat 18 year olds like kids?
