Rep. Ayanna Pressley is trying to get the national voting age changed from 18 to 16.
It's reasonable to have some doubt about this, but the responses I've seen really speak to a disregard of youth. Many 16 year olds are far more informed than adults, especially as lessons in history and civics are often fresher on their minds.
People need to treat youth with more respect and recognize that many 16 and younger are already active in politics, they just can't vote.
I don't think top-down socialism works. because I don't trust the people at the top to know what we want or need. No leader will save us. only we can save us because only we know how. Socialism has to be organized from the bottom all the way to the top. There are steps you can't skip, like building a real mass movement.
