After seeing this post, , I got to wondering what it would be like to have a world or maybe an entire reality (multiple worlds throughout whole galaxies) run by children or the extraterrestrial equivalent of prepubescent kids, with the oldest, most respected leaders being anywhere from 8 to 13 (or equivalent to that). There would still be adults, but the roles would be reversed, so children would have authority over everything.
I'd like to start by saying I view humans at least to be inherently good, and I'd like to think a reality run by kids would be a lot less violent, less prejudiced, more filled with wonder (as kids often get astounded by what adults find mundane), more innocent/untainted and a hopefully better reality, but IDK for sure, some kids can be just as much jerks as adults, sometimes even more.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this? Is there a word for such a society?
I might add more if I think of anything.
