Maybe the point has been made before, but what does it say about our society that people are now legally considered some degree of dependent on their parents until the age of 26 and also now nearly automatically swept into the fold of the largest special interest group in the history of the world – the American Association of Retired Persons – at the age of 50?
I don’t need to do the math for you, but I’ll repeat the number: 24 years! Not every individual will sit on their parents insurance until 26 and few will begin reaping the rewards of AARP membership (except maybe restaurant and movie ticket discounts), but from a macro/trendline point of view, a cultural ethos is being calcified whereby taking > making, relying upon > relied upon.
