Hmmm, I am not at all sure that the majority of these sweeping generalizations have anything to do with the actual world or with historical trends either.

“I would there were no age between sixteen and three-and-twenty, or that youth would sleep out the rest; for there is nothing in the between but getting wenches with child, wronging the ancientry, stealing, fighting” -- Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale.
