    Not in the sense that it would come with all the other rights you get at 18. Though, I'd like it to be dropped to 16, along with buying tobacco products and cannabis in TSRland. Ideally i'd like the state not to enforce age ranges, and leave it up to people and parents themselves though I understand the unlikeliness of such reform in such an authoritarian house. (Though it seems that people are generally authoritarian on issues that don't affect them and issues they don't understand).
    Just because a lot of things have been dropped to 18 does not make it any less arbitrary than 21, nor 16 which is also rather arbitrary

    I agree to a great extent, as I said, I'd prefer if the state wasn't involved in telling people what they should and shouldn't be doing for their age.
