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

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.
