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. www.completeliberty.com

So many vital needs of kids are not being met by parents and school systems, such as clarity, respect, choice, autonomy, and independence
People doing things that they don't really want to do tends to disconnect them from their feelings and needs, causing a host of problems

Taking what other people do and say personally (rather than just as tragic expressions of unmet needs) contributes to the violent communication process
Attributing the cause of our feelings to things outside ourselves prevents us from taking responsibility for our feelings
http://logicallearning.net/ResponsibilityForFeelings.mp3

With nonviolent communication, you separate your observation of what the other person (or yourself) did or said from your evaluation of it; unsolicited evaluations foster antagonism
http://www.cnvc.org/Training/NVC-Concepts

Still wasting time voting? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esO2WJZxpYY

Throughout history people have used morality as a weapon to get others to do things, which stems from how parents deal with their children--in which battles of the wills are common

Focusing on feelings and needs rather than moral judgments fosters understanding and compassion; in both parenting and education, this process is commonly lacking, and vital needs, such as respect, are neglected

Raising Children Compassionately by Marshall Rosenberg
http://www.naturalchild.org/marshall_rosenberg/rcc.html

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

Brett joins me from http://schoolsucksproject.com

Nonviolent communication achieves clarity and understanding without the typical seen and unseen costs of arguments

Even if a person expresses disinterest in communication, then you can still guess his or her feelings and needs behind that sentiment, thus keeping the empathetic connection
http://www.cnvc.org/Training/feelings-inventory
http://www.cnvc.org/Training/needs-inventory

http://www.celebrateempathy.com/NVC_Intro.pdf

Diagnosing, moralizing, and judging others is the death knell for the empathic process--and thus for getting our needs met

Attributing the cause of our feelings to things outside ourselves prevents us from taking responsibility for our feelings

Punishing through inducing fear is terribly widespread in human culture, e.g., "law-enforcement"--which utterly fails to meet our needs for respect and choice

Anger and Domination Systems by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.
http://www.nwcompass.org/anger_and_domination.html
Win/win scenarios, based on nonviolent communication, enable us to meet in the field beyond right-doing and wrong-doing

Domination systems, such as modern education and the military--and governments in general--require:
1. Suppression of self
2. Moralistic judgments
3. Amtssprache (this expression was used by Nazi officials to describe a bureaucratic language that denies choice, with words like should, have to, ought)
4. The crucial concept of deserve

To ascribe an evil nature to children is the root of all evil
The entire "corrections system" designed by those in government is based on punishment and false penitence
Thus, the institutions of government and religion are inherently anti-self-esteem

Moralizing, judging, criticizing, accusing, and even diagnosing are all tragic expressions of unidentified feelings and unmet needs--which tend to ensure NOT getting one's own needs met
As biological and further as rational beings, we all have the same universal needs
http://www.cnvc.org/Training/needs-inventory

Humans' technological progress and increases in productivity are in spite of the debilitating meme of statism; without statism, we'd be FAR more advanced

Teaching that people are deserving of punishment assists in making violence against them enjoyable

Punishment, particularly collective punishment, is part and parcel of war--total dehumanization of individuals

Shame and guilt-tripping are not effective ways to promote authentic, intrinsically motivated, change in others

The Basics of Non Violent Communication 1.1 (highly recommended 3-4 hr workshop)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-129JLTjkQ

Our emotions are part of an emotional motivation system alerting us to our needs
Our thinking in domination systems gives rise to anger against others and enemy imagery
It's important and healthy to consciously replace the phrase "I am angry because you/they..." with "I am angry because I am needing..."

"Blame, insults, put-downs (critical remarks), labels, criticism,
comparisons, and diagnoses are all forms of judgment."..."When we judge, as a result, we increase defensiveness and resistance from others. If they do agree to act in harmony with our values because they concur with our analysis of their wrongness, they will likely do so out of fear, guilt, or shame." Marshall Rosenberg

What evidence is there that anyone wants the "services" provided by those in government, since they are coercively imposed?

Even if you're an advocate of http://agorism.info, you still can't escape the statist economic matrix, a society in which most people abide by laws, regulations, taxes, and a fiat currency system, not to mention the "public school" system

Respect for individuals, in principle, can never be achieved via the coercive collectivistic organization of government; government violates individual rights by definition
