Extending childhood all the way to 18/21 is a relatively new phenomenon.
No, it's not. The Brady Bunch has been including up to 25-yr-olds in the "children slain by gun violence" category for years!
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
