I’m not a drinker. And by that I mean I have — maybe — two drinks a month. So it didn’t really bother me to wait until 21 to be able to legally drink. But that’s not the point. The point is that the drinking age is clearly ridiculous, and this video gives some good reasons why. Of course, I’d argue that the consistent position is not to lower the drinking age but to abolish it entirely and end the prohibition.
P.S. Did you know that as recently as the 80s, colleges would buy kegs to help incoming freshmen get to know each other? True story — from one of my college professors who attended American University.Published in
