How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?
With younger citizens being more socially aware through open dialogue and the use of social media, I think our nation could change for the better. By allowing the youth to vote, they will be able to help create a country they would like to grow up in and start families in at a future date. It would also create a greater sense of civic duty.
What are some red flags to watch out for in daily life?
You can tell someone lacks sincerity when theyâ€™re only nice to you when you are surrounded by cameras. A tendency to be overly consumed by oneâ€™s phone with no value for interpersonal connections is also a major pet peeve.
