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

Guests Brett from http://schoolsucksproject.com/live and http://youtube.com/schoolsuckspodcast and Jeremy from http://ultimatefreedomquest.com and http://internetbusinessmastery.com

"public school" is the church of the state

one key challenge is to maintain your curiosity in a culture that stifles it (via such things as rewards and punishments)

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:
