At what age do you feel most adults become politically aware and active?


Generally, does it fade as one enters a period of life, career, and family development because of those time demands?

    Wow! That is news Arthur about age 16 for voting. I did not know the voting age lowered by Scotland for that referendum. That made a difference as you shared.

    I keep waiting for my daughter to grow up and face reality, but she is just a freshman in college. I will feel much better when she gets past her idealism. Someone has to pay for socialism and I can't afford for it to be me.

    About eighteen is when I became politically aware paying attention to the news, reading on issues, and activism. My activism faded about 26 as life stuff took over.

    Very well expressed; my mother and grandmother lived through the Bristol blitz and graphically described their experiences to me; 1st night whole horizon glowed red as the city burnt. So although I didn’t experience WW2, I can empathise with you.

    Good point. I did realize more when I thought of how the government affected my future.
