I don't think Stefan says that peaceful parenting will result in children that aren't statists.

The strategy as I understand it is; raising children peacefully results in people able to entertain arguments against the state more readily than children raised abusively/in authoritarian households.

Society reflects the family and by breeding voluntarism in the family, we breed voluntarism in society.

Peaceful parenting isn't a panacea, it is simply the way to raise a generation of people who are open to the idea of voluntarism. Peaceful parenting in and of itself it won't solve the problem. It will just lay the track for the freedom train to come rolling into town.

Incidentally, I haven't seen a huge amount of your work, but what I have seen has been amazing. You're an inspiration +AdamKokesh, keep it up!

As a parent, this is a very uncomfortable way to think of one's self. But just give it a listen and mull over the thoughts and ideas for a few days.

The thrust of the message is that as parents, our children are our customers. The customer isn't always right - but as service providers we should constantly strive to ensure that our customers are happy and want to continue to "do business" with us.

Not only does this build strong and robust relationships with our children, but it also makes the contrast between positive and negative relationships very stark. This will help them avoid negative relationships and keep them surrounded by positive, supportive people. And isn't that all we really want for them?

Sound like a boring topic? Wrong! If you have any interest at all in making the world a just and good place, have a listen! Great stuff.

Be a skeptic, not a "denier". To be skeptical requires perpetual curiosity about everything. Even be skeptical about your skepticism!

mm none of this is news to me.  I struggle to believe this isn't common sense.  I find it very strange that nobody ever mentions the shifting of the magnetic poles.  Surely something that significant requires as much notice as solar activity.

Wow, agile around the family?! Crazy! I kinda like the idea of an agile board in the home.
Parents using agile practices with their children are seeking to help them be better team members, to have personal responsibility, and to be less reliant on their parents as they grow up.

Social movements are fascinating. This is a great chat with a former "feminist" about possible motivations behind the movement and how they have changed over time. Worth a listen if you have any interest in the insanity plaguing many parts of the world.

Raise this topic with friends and family - and even random people you meet while out and about!

Raising the standards we have around parenting is one of the greatest things we can do to bring peace and prosperity to the future.

Government is the lack of humility. Government is the arrogance that experts know how to solve problems. It is the arrogance that "the people" know what is best for everyone.

Freedom is the ability to see a problem and stop and think "Damn, I'm not sure how to solve this. But it will be fun figuring it out!"

Great article on how we're failing to connect with those around us. I'm pretty skeptical about gun control (I'm a fence sitter) but regardless of the existence of guns, the existence of this level of emotional pain and anguish should be setting off alarm bells.
