If the world leaders and officials were Young Adults, what do you think would be different?

#1
All the world leaders are adults usually above age 40 mainly it seems. How different do you think the world would be if only people between 18-25 could start? I'm not saying it would be better or worse. It would for sure change. There would be potential influence from these peoples families and friends. Of course they aren't as experience in years as the older folks, but we'd have a different mindset.

Scary thought.

I have seen some of the stupid things coming from the new generation.
At the same time while true, the same can be said for people in office. Not all of them are like that just like not all of the new generation are reckless. It comes to percentages and what that number is, I don't know. I was thinking things like "Would younger folks be less interested in invading countries" and what not.

Also it never really hit me until a year or two after High School; those roles and titles in school lead to the political representation of that generation somewhat. Class president, etc. Then you may or may not find out people who you went to school are actually involved in politics.

Valid point...

Personally, I think the entire way of thinking needs to revised for the human race.

Instead of dedicating 20% of the worlds resources to defense and security against each other, I think everybody should start acting as one. If everybody acted as one, we could focus on bigger things, such as the advancement of the human race... We could dedicate many more resources to creating a global economy, we could expand outwards into space....

Just think, the money invested in securing borders, maintaining militaries.... money spent destroying each other... could be put to useful means.

Imagine this.

Me and you live next to each other. Each of us has 1000$

You are a hunter, and I am a computer nerd.
Option 1.
We each spend 500$ to put a fence between ourselves.
I spend 250$ to buy food for my family.
You spend 250$ to have somebody fix your wireless
We each pay 250$ for a 100/10 internet connection.

We are now broke.

Option 2.
We worry about the bigger picture.
I trade you services for your goods. We learn to share a connection, and split the bill.
We each have 875$ left over.

We invest the money into a swimming pool between our houses.

Crappy example...

But, instead, I live on a world surrounded by greedy morons who have slowed the evolution of the human race.... a world full of idiots whose religious beliefs cause us to wage war against each other.
