RE: Banning Smartphones for kids under 16
I don't think these devices are as destructive as social media in general.

I suppose banning social media is about as likely as banning iPhones for anyone under 16 so why not wish big? Frankly these days most <25 year olds are no more adult than I was at 16 and I think these devices are largely to blame for that, so it really doesn't matter if you banned people having them until they turned 16. Even the people who were 16 when this became a thing have been fucked up by it.

A smart phone without social media is basically just a phone that's a TV and a camera too. Not so bad.

Unfortunately both democratic and free-market values retain the right to utterly destroy their host so none of this can be solved under either democracy or capitalism.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.
