and adults should have the right to make their own decisions about alcohol consumption. I feel that this is a good argument but, this is what I say, while eighteen year olds have the right to vote, in many others respects they have not reached adulthood. Biologically, their brains are still developing, few support themselves economically, and most importantly many lack the emotional maturity and judgement to use alcohol safely (Drinking Age). Even though they are old enough to fight for our country is doesn’t mean they are mature enough to handle alcohol correctly. Especially when he or she is put in stressful environments.
But no matter the experience or how much they have been taught teenagers have one problem, maturity. Stated in passage one, “the new brain research suggests that a...new 17- or 18-year-old driver is considered safer than a new 16-year-old driver.” The drivers age extremely matters because of their maturity, when someone's brain is fully developed with still no experience is much better because of their emotions and reactions. 16-year-olds just aren't ready to take on the responsibilities of driving on the road with others that they could hurt or even
If some citizens who are qualified to vote are denied the right to cast votes, it is considered as a severe abuse of political equality. The debate about the age of electoral majority has taken place for a long period; however, there has been moderately slight attention in the debate given to the exclusion of young people from the vote (Tremmel, 2015). Some of the critics of lowering the voting age to sixteen claim that the young people do not possess the capability and motivation of appropriately taking part in the elections. Some studies have shown that the turnout of the voters ages 18 years is relatively low, however, this cannot specifically attribute to the motivation to take part in the election (Wagner, Johann, & Kritzinger, 2012). This shows that this the issue of the age to the electoral majority is of significance and should be discussed.
No more volunteer hours. No more recreation hours. So your friends will no longer be close” (Lowry 18) . It should be reversed, the older you get the more that you should have to do to contribute to the community. Another way that our communities are unique, yet similar is birthdays, and how the older you get, the less fun birthdays become.
I just do not think it 's reasonable nor realistic. The reason the drinking age increased was to prevent more highway fatalities, but as you mentioned the age to purchase a home was not increased once the market crashed. I believe there 's more pros than cons to lowered the drinking age back to
Well, having fun and going out to dinner later and riding around late at night should not be banned because they think we should have a curfew. One way we could stop them from enforcing that law is that they are not our parents. They should not be the ones telling us when to come back home and how long we can stay out, our parents should. As Kimberly Ellis states “The law does not help rebuild residents, trust in the police, and ‘gives the impression that we don’t know how to raise our kids.’” Also they think all teens are bad, and are criminals. Which they can’t prove that because a lot of kids are not, and don’t do anything wrong.
This can be proven with the evidence that "in todays times most people aren 't interested in politics or care to vote as they think their vote wont change anything". This demonstrates that more people will become intrigued by politics as if voting was made mandatory then people will have to vote therefore it will make them become interested in politics. This can also be proven with the evidence that nearly 16 million registered electors didn 't vote. This demonstrates that more people will become intrigued by politics as people cant be bothered voting anymore they have gave up hope on things changing. Therefore i think we should make voting compulsory in the UK as if more people become intrigued in politics then this country could become a better place and people could become more
Many who disagree with the drinking age believe that when someone can pay taxes or enlist in the military they should be able to make their own decisions about drinking. On the contrary the opposing side believes that the legal drinking age of 21 causes less alcohol related deaths. The pro-18 group believes a legal drinking age of 18 could be safer than 21 because as of
It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it, that’s the point’ ”(Roth 239). In contrast the Abnegation faction believes that the world would be better if people were less selfish and more selfless. As a result to these different perspectives, Tris’ outlook on life starts to change as she gets older, because she was raised in the Abnegation faction, but as she grew up she became more selfish(which goes against the Abnegation values), so she did not belong with them anymore, which caused her to transfer to Dauntless when she was 16. In Anthem, the government decided how the world would be best. The government decides on who mates with who and many other aspects of life.
You could argue that this would have very little output in some cultures, countries or societies, however I believe that with the younger generations people will soon become more tolerant and less racist. In some slower progressing countries or societies this could take a long time, but eventually with internet and people connecting more through for example social media, people will rid of their conservative and old fashion thoughts. Although this can be a huge challenge in countries that has little experience
Even though there are some good things that can arise from this change, there are just too many bad things that are caused from it. The Little League officiators should see that the good doesn’t outweigh the bad. They should see that the younger they try to make the league, the less people there are going to be actually competing and watching the LLWS. The LLWS is supposed to be a big deal that kids look forward to playing in and watching every year, and if they go through with this change then there will be less kids watching and playing. I hope that the officiators know what they are doing, and hopefully they will come to their senses and keep the current age rule that is currently being
Ever since the 26th amendment was passed, eighteen year olds were allowed to vote. This new voting age led to this new age group showing less representation than older groups. It was then thought of in the Montgomery County to try and change this, so they lowered the voting age to sixteen. This new way of thinking was brought up to try and bring up the amount of young voters they see less of in elections. I support this new change because it seems like a good idea to let younger people have the chance to voice their opinions.
Baby boomers challenge the stereotypes about aging is that they do not want to retire at the age of 60 years old. They already know that the economy has changed and therefore money is not available for a lengthy retirement. The average baby boomer today is more active than a person would think that they are active. They take a important role in exercise and are open to new ideas. Examples of families in later life that dispel negative myths on aging is the fact that people are living longer.
On the other hand, many people who want the voting age to remain the same claim that at age 16 or 17 there’s no burning issues to motivate or interest teenage voters. If the justification for lowering the voting age was to to boost voter turnout there was plenty of other solutions presented in the article. Shin states“Other possible changes include same-day registration, allowing paroled felons to vote, and giving candidates easier access to apartment buildings to campaign.” This only reinforces the importance of young voters to Council members because as stated in the article, “reports from Denmark suggest that younger teenagers are more likely to cast a ballot than slightly older peers.” At such a young age teenagers are taught to take action and strive towards creating a better future for themselves and starting at grassroots level with municipal elections in my opinion is the perfect way to start. Offering that type of responsibility and connection from elected officials to younger teens could get them in the habit of voting and taking action for the rest of their lives. Likewise, if 16 and 17-year-olds are able to get a driver 's permit and take on that much responsibility than they deserve to get a chance to
A better way to phrase this sentence to make it more argumentative is: People who do not read novels have more time to spare and therefore are more likely to attend sports events and movies than those who do. 8. This is an effective argument because the main idea of this argument is preference. More people are becoming dependent on technology for their everyday needs, but there will always be some people who prefer paper. Therefore, the amount of newspapers may decrease but we cannot say they are going to be
