Right leaning New York Times writer Ross Douthat has an idea that makes sence

It is the year 2009 and I am a young lad of 18. By all rights I am an adult. Or am I. Yes I can drive a car. Yes I can vote for our next president. No I cannot go in to a bar until 2012. That is an age restriction that we as a society agree upon. After all, you aren’t ready to drink. Your brain isn’t matured enough to drink. Well, Ross Douthat of the New York Times takes the same approach to wanting to buy an ar-15.
“For instance, instead of debating gun regulations that would apply to every gun owner, we could consider limits that are imposed on youth and removed with age. After all, the fullness of adult citizenship is not bestowed at once: Driving precedes voting precedes drinking, and the right to stand for certain offices is granted only in your thirties.
Perhaps the self-arming of citizens could be similarly staggered. Let 18-year-olds own hunting rifles. Make revolvers available at 21. Semiautomatic pistols, at 25. And semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 could be sold to 30-year-olds but no one younger.
This proposal would be vulnerable to some of the same practical critiques as other gun control proposals. But it is more specifically targeted to the plague of school shootings, whose perpetrators are almost always young men.
And it offers a kind of moral bridge between the civic vision of Second Amendment advocates and the insights of their critics by treating bearing arms as a right but also a responsibility, the full exercise of which might only come with maturity and age.” What do you think?

‘The Alienist’ Is a Period Piece and it still works

my lord! It is true that ‘the alienist’ is a period piece but if you ask me the story is good.
According to the New York Times “judging from the early episodes it’s fine: lush, moody, a bit stiff. But it’s nothing to clear your calendar for” (2018.) I would disagree.
The show is good in that the story is not dull. Incase you missed the concept per the new york times: “Alienists like Kreizler (Daniel Brühl), were early psychiatrists who believed that the mentally ill, including criminals, were “alienated” from their rightful nature. .
Kreizler is called in by the police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (Brian Geraghty) as the mutilated corpses of boy prostitutes begin turning up in Lower Manhattan. Investigating the murders at all is something of a radical act. The sex trade involves the interests of powerful men, and the rank-and-file police can hardly be troubled to care about dead urchins.
Instead, Kreizler enlists a New York Times illustrator, John Moore (Luke Evans), and Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning), a police secretary whose ambitions of becoming a detective meet with the contempt of her male colleagues. they form a kind of turn-of-the-century geek squad employing criminal psychology a field still separating itself from quackery and such newfangled techniques as fingerprint collection, which the police eschew in favor of old-fashioned beatings.
Arguably the most compelling crime in “The Alienist” is in plain sight: the exploitation of poor children, who are seen as expendable precisely because of how they’re exploited. A police officer refers to one of the victims as “it,” because “what else would you call a degenerate who dresses himself as a girl for the pleasure of grown men?” (2018.) While the story is good and the early look at psychology is fun to watch I look for the smaller details. I enjoy seeing these period pieces because it shows how far we’ve come as a society.
You cannot talk about your personal parts shall we say in the work place today; Thank god for that. Back then you could. I will watch every episode.
