Why is it only in America where we say, “You’re 21, gtfo NOW. And grandma, you can’t bathe yourself any more so you gtfo too?” Is it our culture of independence? Is it our affluence in comparison to other countries? Family should be a death grip. “Get motivated and shoot for your dream. We will not abandon you before you’re ready and we won’t send you away to die alone.”

“Why is it only in America where we say, “You’re 21, gtfo NOW.”

That’s really old. In our earlier history, many children were supposed to be on their own by 16, and most certainly by 18.

In other countries, children of 10 are earning a part of the income for the family, and by 14 or 15 are major contributors.

Only in America, do we think it is swell to have 26 year old “children” on their parents’ health insurance. We coddle them much too long.

This was the goal of the progressives, who wanted to break down the family, and coincidentally, the industrialists, like Rockefeller and Carnegie, who knew that broken-up families produced more compliant workers. (See "The Underground History of American Education). Rockefeller and Carnegie spent more money establishing teacher colleges and schooling research, then all levels of government combined. And their methods were based entirely on behavioral psychology, or animal training. It was a natural fit in the heyday of Darwinism.

The Socialists in Prussia developed compulsory schooling to remove children from the home. For the same reason, Carnegie and Rockefeller promoted compulsory schooling in America.

Additionally, the Socialists sought to replace the church, as the source of charity, with the State. Bismark began the welfare state in Germany.

Finally, the communists sought to break down the moral order, because irrational people could be led around by their... natural tendencies.

Again, the communist desire to break down the moral order coincided with the goal of modern business practices. Edward Bernays realized that irrational people made good consumers. They were driven by emotion, rather than intellect.

You need to get out more. Oh, and study animals, too. I don’t know any that keep the offpsring around past the point they cshould be taking care of themselves.

Let’s turn your statement around: Why ISN’T a 21 year old adult taking care of themselves??? Just what kind of retarded child did your raise? How terrible of a parent are you to have failed to teach your child to thrive?
