Of course, if boys went to military school, and spent their time in the competitive context, both physical, and mental, they would not be mentally damaged and infantilized like they are today. The only reason a boy of 14-16 is not ready to be a man is because he has been infantilized. It may take to 25-27 to complete his maturity but that just means that his ability to continue to learn continues until that time – until he can be a Pater Familia.

My vision is precisely that.
