    Yes. It's bad for social, mental and emotional development, and significantly impairs young people's ability to build self-confidence, so they can have the emotional maturity to make it in the world when they become adults, who will be expected to be able to do all the things they've been coddled all their life and not allowed to do, and now suddenly supposed to now do on their own. This is why we now have a generation of scared, depressed, and significantly spiked rate of suicide happening in generation Z.

    Sometimes you need to fall down to learn that it's not that bad, and that's it's actually really easy to pick yourself up again. And without living through these falls, it is nearly impossible to know how to be successful, because you've not learned anything by past failures and mistakes, and fear always holds people back, so by not letting young people have these rites of passage, prevents them from ever being able to really reach their full potential in life. And I feel like many millenials and gen Z'ers are too afraid to make it in a capitalist world, and this is why they're being naively persuaded that somehow socialism is the answer.

      Thanks, I actually feel bad for our younger generations because their overbearing older generations are raising them to fear life because they won't let them live it...

    Undoubtedly. BUT, is reaching our full potential worth throwing away our values? Like most political solutions, a delicate balance is required.

    By that logic, murder of the useless would have to be OKAY.  

    By that logic, you are not allowed to view value in human life for the sake of being human.  Which would then allow for people to be classified as subhuman and again, we get back to our, it's okay to kill them then, bit.

    Also, by that logic, as soon as you yourself failed to be considered useful, you too would have to be killed for the good of society.

    Not so enticing is it?
