The Mindcrime liberty show discusses whether children are overrated with respect to different political groups and outlooks. Why do so many political/social movements across the spectrum seem to be about defending or doing things “for the children.” Are they really doing it for the children or their own power? What are the downsides of the sentimentalization of children and using them as political props? Are children closer to animals or are children undeveloped humans? When does a child become an adult and are teenagers a “new” category? Do adults want to become “children?” Are children innocent with respect to Christianity? How ought the law treat children?
