Who’s the most repressed group in the world? Justify your answer**
I believe children are the most repressed group in the world. I believe this is true due to the fact that children are starting from scratch, they have to learn everything as they go along and they don’t have the capacity to make major decisions or look after themselves. They need parents, teachers and other adults to guide them to adulthood. Until they become adults, they have to be somewhat repressed, however that repression has to be lifted as they get older.
