What prevented adults from acknowledging the simple truths of a 12 year old boy? Can you think of other examples of groups of people failing to recognize rality?

To say that they have no not acknowledged his truths is inaccurate. They simply did not acknowledge them as true, their truths are different from his. The adult's truths were to see 'liberty and justice for all.' That was what they wanted to, and did, believe. That was their truth and because many people disagree with their truth does not make it untrue, in the same way that it does not make the 12 year old boy's truth untrue. They are simply true in different ways.
