No, I’m 21. I just want to maximise liberty.

18 is a good compromise, agreed, but I think the youth, down to the limit I just said, have as much right to their liberty as someone above that legal age. It’s 16 to drive a car here in Australia, yet they don’t have a voice on how road laws, infrastructure, regulations and such affect that experience.

I feel we have to be consistent that once you hit the minimum age to do something that requires a legal age, that should be when they can vote. For me I think the Scandinavian limit I just suggested is better than 18.
