A Vision of Liberty: America in 2030 by Jim Davies (http://www.takelifeback.com/)
People in government try to make the wrong seem right; whatever good intentions they have are undermined by the coercive institution of government itself
People naturally want to minimize conflict; for example, Merchant Law
Self-ownership isn't for sale: http://completeliberty.com/chapter3.php#65
People own things and they are sovereign
Semantics of "ownership" in relation to the self...
The God Who Wasn't There - http://www.thegodmovie.com/ - History of the Gospels:
Mystics of spirit want you to surrender your mind to their hockshops of authority

Our age of pre-logic promotes various contradictory mythologies

As more and more people reject fear as a motivator, we'll attain more and more liberty; self-esteem is the key to freedom
Advocating a night watchmen State (as the "final authority") is reflective of a lack of individuation from one's authoritarian parents
Supporting the status quo is easy
If friends and family persist in advocating violence and threats of violence (statism), then you know that their love of control, domination, and fear, is greater than their love of you and peaceful relations
Most parents are the recipients of the intergenerational transfer of tribal and statist memes, which result in pretenses and defenses that support aggression, power imbalances, and disrespect
If we don't speak up about the truth, the adults in our world will perpetuate the status quo and invariably bring about the destruction of the human race

We must develop a consistent conception of liberty (complete liberty), based on property rights and individual choices

Irrefutable philosophical axioms: http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/axioms.html http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/axiomatic_concepts.html
Each and every self-contained neural system, each human, must be allowed (by other humans) to function naturally, according to reason
An assertion of determinism that attempts to deny choice still is a choice; to deny conceptual selection (volition) would be contradictory
It's crucial to explore your subconscious thoughts and feelings--and the most effective and efficient way to do that is via sentence completion exercises
