Voter must have a matured mind

Dear Madam,
Polarisation and the storyline of many action movies actually play a game that audiences in their childhood used to play. A child has been taught from its childhood a game of finding and punishing a scapegoat. When it hits a wall and starts crying, its parents give a tight slap to the wall. The crying child then starts laughing. A childish mindset makes action movies popular and polarisation a successful diversionary tactic. Unfortunately, some people believe that all they need is a dictator who will punish the scapegoat and make them happy. A voter needs to attain not only 18 years but also a matured mind.
