As we talked about in class, "The Law is the expression of the general will". This reminds me of a democracy like the one we have in this country. In order for a law to be put into action, people as a whole have to vote for it. It is the people's choice for what becomes a law or not but in other forms of government this is not always the case. Although an age requirement is the only way to distinct if a human is mentally capable of making a rational decision (voting), I dislike the way our system works. Some humans mature faster than others and it is possible for an educated 15 year old to make a very rational, unbiased decisions. "No one may be disturbed on account of his opinions"(Article 10). If someone has an opinion that is well thought out, I believe it should be respected child or man.
