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

The Questions:

1. Were you encouraged to be open in the expression of your emotions and desires? Or were your parents' behavior and manner of treating you such as to make you fear emotional self-assertiveness and openness, or to regard it as inappropriate?

The Questions:

2. Did your parents project that what a person made of his life, and what you specifically made of your life, was important?

3. Did your parents encourage in you a fear of the world, a fear of other people? Or were you encouraged to face the world with an attitude of relaxed, confident benevolence? Or neither?

Breaking Free by Nathaniel Branden
http://books.google.com/books/about/Breaking_free.html?id=2U8dAQAAMAAJ

The Questions:

1. Was it your parents' practice to punish you or discipline you by striking or beating you?

2. Did your parents project that they believed in your basic goodness? Or did they project that they saw you as bad or worthless or evil?

3. Did your parents project that they believed in your intellectual and creative potentialities? Or did they project that they saw you as mediocre or stupid or inadequate?

4. In your parents' expectations concerning your behavior and performance, did they take cognizance of your knowledge, needs, interest and context? Or were you confronted by expectations and demands that were overwhelming and beyond your ability to satisfy?

Breaking Free by Nathaniel Branden
http://books.google.com/books/about/Breaking_free.html?id=2U8dAQAAMAAJ

The Questions:

1. Did your parents treat you with respect?
Were your thoughts, needs, and feelings given consideration?
Was your dignity as a human being acknowledged?
When you expressed ideas or opinions, were they treated seriously?
Where your likes and dislikes treated seriously? (Not necessarily agreed with or acceded to, but nonetheless treated seriously?)
Were your desires treated thoughtfully and respectfully?

2. Did you feel that you were psychologically visible to your parents? Did you feel real to them?
Did your parents seem to make a genuine, thoughtful effort to understand you?
Did your parents seem authentically interested in you as a person?
Could you talk to your parents about issues of importance and receive interested, meaningful understanding from them?

3. Did you feel loved and valued by your parents, in the sense that you experienced yourself as a source of pleasure to them? Or did you feel unwanted, perhaps a burden? Or did you feel hated? Or did you feel you were simply an object of indifference?

The Questions:

1. Were you encouraged to think independently, to develop your critical faculty? Or were you taught to be obedient rather than mentally active and questioning?
Did your parents project that it was more important to conform to what other people believed than to discover what is true?
When your parents wanted you to do something, did they appeal to your understanding and give you reasons for their request? Or did they communicate in effect, "Do it because I say so"?

2. Did you feel free to express your views openly without fear of punishment?

3. Did your parents communicate their disapproval of your thoughts, desires, or behavior by means of humor, teasing, or sarcasm?

I invite you to participate in an eight-week therapy group of at least five persons (each weekly session will be 1.5hrs)--please email me at wes@happinesscounseling.com, and we'll fine-tune the program.

Breaking Free by Nathaniel Branden
http://books.google.com/books/about/Breaking_free.html?id=2U8dAQAAMAAJ

The Questions:

1. Did your parents deal with you fairly and justly? Did your parents resort to threats in order to control your behavior--either threats of immediate punitive action on their part, or threats in terms of long-range consequences for your life, or threats of supernatural punishments, such as going to hell? Were you praised when you performed well? Or merely criticized when you performed badly? Were your parents willing to admit it when they were wrong? Or was it against their policy to concede that they were wrong?

2. Did your parents' behavior and manner of dealing with you tend to produce guilt in you?

3. Did your parents' behavior and manner of dealing with you tend to produce fear in you?

4. Did your parents project that it was desirable for you to think well of yourself, to have self-esteem? Or were you cautioned against valuing yourself, and encouraged to be humble?

5. Did your parents encourage you in the direction of having a healthy affirmative attitude toward sex and toward your own body? Or a negative attitude? Or neither?

I invite you to participate in an eight-week therapy group of at least five persons (each weekly session will be 1.5hrs)--please email me at wes@happinesscounseling.com, and we'll fine-tune the program. Here is the information page:
