    You know, I really agree with the topic creator, much like I agree with the sentiment that "the future rests with these bright souls" and "the passion of youth will guide so and so" and etc. Same as it's always been.

    Thanks, that was great.
    That almost gives me hope.

    Says the man whose name consists of "Peter" followed by the words "the" and "Hermit". I wouldn't trust a hermit to give an accurate description of the public.

    Why not? Being an Introvert I tend to watch people more then interact with them, and through watching I find myself disliking a lot more of the way people act and the way things are going.

    For example while I want kids of my own one day, at times I wonder if I want to bring any into this world based on the way it seems to be heading. If my kids did any of the stuff I did as a kid then either they'd end up as criminals in the eyes of all these new laws that seem to keep popping up in the vain of protecting us from ourselves or I'd be up on child endangerment charges for letting them.

    Theres way too many laws being created due to those out there that can't accept responsibility for their own actions and cry and blame others for their mistakes.

    I didn't realise the youth of today were so old.

    I also didn't realise that Hermit was an actual title. You don't see that on many curriculum vitaes any more.

    What laws? I'm 16 and Canadian, so what you are saying has a lot of revelance to me and I'd love to know what you mean exactly. And INFP, if that matters

    Since when has rebellion of the youth against the "elderly" been a bad thing? It is a product of free thought. Without it we would be doomed to doing the same things for the remainder of our existence. No progress has ever been made without a little rebellion.
    But sir, your opinion is wrong.

    I watched the movie Into the Wild lastnight.. The whole idea of movie was appealing, but I would never be able to do anything like that or be a hermit. At the very least I would need someone to do it with, being that I'm one of these hopeless romantic types.

    Any and all laws that are designed to "protect you from yourself".

    For instance in the city I grew up in it's technically illegal to climb trees. Hell I used to climb the tallest trees I could on windy days just because I liked swaying back and forth in the wind. Technically the fact I climbed the tree made me a criminal.

    I've owned numerous pellet guns as a kid, these days you have to be 18 to buy one.

    You need to be 16 to drive most offroad vehicles. I've had motorized vehicles since I was 4.

    I used to be able to take the boat out whenever I wanted. You now need a license to operate most boats.

    I could go on.. Needless to say though, most of the things I used to do outdoors as a kid are becoming so heavily restricted that it's either play sports, or play video games. Speaking of video games, I never had to deal with all this rating crap, I didn't need to be a certain age to buy certain games, and I didn't turn out to be a mass murderer at my school.

    I've never heard of this movie. I should watch it.

    Why couldn't you be a hermit? The isolation? I could stand the isolation -- I'd enjoy it immensely, but surviving on my own in the wilderness would take a bit of effort and getting used to. Wouldn't be impossible, though. Our ancestors did it.

    edit: I watched the movie, and the guy was a moron to not, at least, bring along a map to Alaska. He probably also should've spent some time learning how to actually survive in the wild, rather than just going there.
