Complete Liberty Podcast
Show that promotes total respect for self-ownership, property rights, and personal choice--amidst the authoritarian/obedience-oriented political and psychological memes in American culture (and elsewhere). Basically, governments and all they entail are the problem, not the solution. Voluntarism (or market anarchism, or anarcho-capitalism) and customary law principles, in accordance with reason and dignity, spell the solution.

The labeling of others, in addition to being disabling, also leads us to being disconnected from needs for authenticity and respect

It's not the job of parents to "make them behave"; violence begets violence
The need for autonomy needs to be fulfilled
