Do you agree with this?

From Newt Gingrich (via Stuart Buck):

Adolescence was invented in the 19th century to enable middle-class families to keep their children out of sweatshops. But it has degenerated into a process of enforced boredom and age segregation that has produced one of the most destructive social arrangements in human history: consigning 13-year-old males to learning from 15-year-old males.

Arguably, adolescence actually now extends frequently to 30-somethings who continue living with parents and playing video games. It seems that I read not too long ago about that being a growing trend?
