Show 2015 How State and Society Invented Adolescence, and Screwed Up Young People

From The Tom Woods Show - http://tomwoods.com/podcasts/

According to Dr. Robert Epstein, adolescence is an artificial construct of recent vintage, unknown in earlier times or indeed in many parts of the world today. The creation of this category, and the assumptions that inform it (by state and society alike) have harmed young people, he argues, and are responsible for the anxiety and angst we associate with the teenage years. These problems are not evident in cultures that lack this category. We explore Dr. Epstein’s thesis and book in today’s episode.
