Me and my dad were eating dinner with a friend of his last week. My dad's friend said that his younger son (14) recently spent a weekend with his older son (18) at his college dorm. I asked if he trusted his older son not to corrupt the younger one, and he said that he kind of hoped that he did. Being corrupted is part of growing up, he said, you need to lose your innocence at some point. What's your opinion on this? Do you think it's best to try to keep children innocent at all costs, and make sure they don't become corrupted in any way, or do you believe that the inevitability of corruption means that you should just accept it?
