    Do you not understand the possibilities associated with quotation marks?

    I assumed this TZM forum is the TZM Global Forum or is it not?

    Yes I am, and your "inquiry", here, isn't going to persuade me to alter how I respond anymore than how I've already decided to respond from already knowing this, because at this point that's just beside the issue. You posted a reply to something that I wrote, and I'm responding back to that; this is routine for any online forum. Are you able to conceptualize that what I wrote may be the same thing that's going through the rest of the world's mind?

    Yeah...its the same reason voting is restricted right now, and has always been somewhat restricted in any so-called 'democratic' society.

    The Elite....or the 'anointed ones' don't want MOB RULE.....

    They want to Rule 'over us'.... not with us.....

    TBH; I think kids should know enough by the age of 9 (depending on the parents) to make an informed and rational decision and thus...'should' be allowed to have their voices heard too.....but that's just me...

    No, not really. If what I said I felt at the time was relevant or related to what we were discussing, I'm unable to conceptualize that people out there in the world (or at least the majority of them) would think what you think after all, we all really are different persons.

    Children ≠ Adults

    Some people might even argue that a brain isn't fully developed until age 25.

    The rational part of a teen’s brain isn’t fully developed and won’t be until age 25 or so.

    That doesn't mean they cannot make decisions that are in their own best interests.....especially if they've been taught the value of 'learning' about the World over simply 'following' undeserving Leaders....That's where WE come into play...

    Sure, but their decisions might be a bit inferior to someone older and more experienced.

    I'm reminded about seeing some stats recently about how the younger someone is, the more likely they are to vote left wing, and the older they are right wing.

    I guess when you haven't any wealth, you want to vote for it to be given to you from others, and when you are older and having worked for your wealth, you don't want to give it away to folk !

    I think what you're referring to is the old adage; "The Youth are for liberal rebellion and the Elders are for conservative rebellion" (lets just hope they both are rebelling against the same thing and success will be realized)

    @ YouTuber; I think you provide the poor way more much power than they actually have....

    How do the wealthy get and STAY wealthy?....By working an economic system to their benefit and by "voting/supporting people who will continue to enact policies that increase their own wealth"......something the poor haven't figure out en mass...YET...
