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.

Needs Inventory | The Center for Nonviolent Communication

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

Principles — Ayn Rand Lexicon

Raising Children Compassionately by Marshall Rosenberg

Getting people to do things via punishments or rewards doesn't appeal to internal motivation, thus harming the quality of connection and producing conflict

Guests Brett from and Daniel from

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

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

classic scene from Bee Movie posted on
Still wasting time voting?

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

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

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

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
clip from the NVC audiobook by Marshall Rosenberg...

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

Burt Rutan's private space flight venture

Anger and Domination Systems by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.
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

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

A Film To End All Wars! part 1 of 15
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)

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..."

Nonviolent communication: a language of life By Marshall B. Rosenberg

The Objectivist ethics of rational self-interest...

Nonviolent communication upholds needs (or values) as universal; we all have the same needs

Hosts Mike and Stephanie invited me as a guest on their podcast to discuss NVC

"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

Remember, Remember, Don’t Vote in November by Thomas L. Knapp

Under "Democracy" children get roped into a communistic system (statism), along with the rest of us

Libertarian Party: Worthless by Larken Rose
What happens when an "anarchist" runs for office?
Political "parties" are designed to be "in power" and control people via statism
What evidence is there that people want governmental "services," give their involuntary nature? None
Rasmussen Poll: 23% Say U.S. Government Has the Consent of the Governed

The new bill changes marijuana possession of less than an ounce to an infraction
Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits Smoking Weed With Tommy Chong
Arnold Schwazeneger smoking weed

What happens when your belief conflicts with a newfound truth? How do you react? How you respond makes all the difference for your life
Speaking the truth to "power" doesn't even entail getting incarcerated; just living consciously and practicing self-assertiveness is necessary
Being disassociated from emotions is part of the process by which one compartmentalizes beliefs and behaviors
Introspection is key

In case you need some more reasons...

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, 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

It doesn't matter whether government is structured in a "pluralistic" or "hierarchical" fashion, all governments by definition violate the non-aggression principle
A coercive monopoly on the enforcement of justice (i.e., government) will always foster injustice

Ever notice that those in government have no problem with the pervasive crimes (rights-violations) they perpetrate?

The more "laws" that governmental employees create, the more "criminals" they can apprehend (ruling via fear of punishment)

"Just doing my job" is not a moral argument; shirking responsibility is not moral

The anti-conceptual mentality dominates America (and the world)

Religion, being a ready-made system for controlling people, promotes the ethics of self-sacrifice, i.e., sacrifice of one's mind and life to invalid and erroneous concepts

"God" is based on a conglomeration of invalid concepts, unable to be logically integrated: infallibility; omniscience; and omnipotence

The "supernatural" is a fantasy designed to enslave people's minds; there is only the natural

Some perspective on something bigger than yourself:

"The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is called a 'pencil beam' survey because the observations encompass a narrow, yet 'deep' piece of sky. Astronomers compare the Ultra Deep Field view to looking through an eight-foot-long soda straw."

Complete liberty is not just about politics; it's about a worldview in which you free your mind of contradictory beliefs and behaviors

Ultimately one must redeem one's mind from all the hockshops of authority; no gods and no governments

Intense introspection and self-knowledge is key

Twenty-one Reasons Why Statism Is a Radical and Radically Incoherent Theory by Jakub Bozydar Wisniewski

Governmental employees who regulate people are unproductive, anti-creative, and anti-entrepreneurial

For many, Government is like God, and needs no explanation

Since individuals can govern themselves, why have government?--unless you want to govern other individuals and seize their property

You can't have a valid contract when one side doesn't agree to it; thus, the "social contract" is a myth perpetuated by people who want to control others

Robbing Peter (via taxation) to support Paul is not benevolent; it's the doctrine of sacrifice

Why Do We Accept Aging? by Kyle Munkittrick

Disobedience is the basic crime against those who presume to rule over you

The basic axiom of any civilized society is to respect persons and property of others

Government doesn't respect persons and property, by definition

Tax attacks: Hillcrest grudge match pits Market Anarchists against Democratic Socialists by Dave Maass

All the grand social projects advocated by statists, in addition to being immoral, fail miserably compared to free market standards

Socialism is mass coercion with no respect for private property rights

Until a statist agrees to put the gun down, arguments from effect (or utility) are somewhat futile

Tax objectors have long history in US: Man who crashed into IRS building is the latest defier by Stephen Ohlemacher (AP)

Self-defensive violence against governmental oppressors is NOT the solution to governmental aggression

Rather, asking root-striking questions about morality and justice can foster better behavior:

Why I Call Myself A Free Market Anarchist And Why I Am One by Brian Micklethwait

Unfortunately there are "Anarchists" who are nothing of the sort, because they violate property rights (or advocate violating them)

Today's "capitalism" is also nothing of the sort, because of statist intervention

Freedom solves all the intractable problems that statism (i.e., lack of freedom) generates

Freedom means being responsible (respecting property rights)

Statism means being irresponsible (disrespecting property rights)

No product, service, or idea should be delivered at the barrel of a gun

Complete liberty will provide a much better life for everyone

The philosophy of pragmatism in America is killing our economy and culture

Evasion, rationalization, and repression are common defense mechanisms

Government, being a coercive monopoly, fosters immorality and injustice

The American Spectator : Just Say Snow by Doug Bandow

Any government is inherently unproductive, because it makes no profits; no voluntary trade with others

The activities of government are a giant lead weight around the neck of our economy

The military does not protect individual freedom, because individuals aren't allowed to make their own choices based on property rights (the essence of freedom)

Free Will - "God Style" PART 2 by NonStampCollector

All politics is invariably local

Cops protect and serve their own, not "the public"

The communized road system is the land of the arbitrary and coercive

The San Diego Superior Court--extortion artists par excellence

Governmental employees apparently can't conceive of making money in a voluntary fashion

Root-striking questions to ask those who want to rule over you...

It's important to explicitly state the nature of the coercive madness to those in government

All the good things gained in life stem from mutually respectful relationships

Aggression is the utter failure of a reasoning consciousness

15 Signs American Society Is Coming Apart at the Seams by David DeGraw

Our standard of living would be a great deal higher without the assorted ills of statism and central banking

Taxpayer money should be left in the hands of those it was extorted from

Productive individuals create jobs, not those in government

It's contradictory to think that you're going to be "secured" by a coercive monopoly

Homelessness has many causes, but getting rid of "public property," i.e., statism, is the remedy

Coercion does not work, in addition to being immoral

The health care problem can only be solved by a free market in medicine (and insurance)

Voluntarism and peacefulness is the answer to the violent nature of government

Government and Katrina...
20/20 - Politically Incorrect Guide To Politics - Pt. 3 of 6

Governmentally controlled roads should be abolished, based on respect for property rights; highways and byways should be privately owned

Imagine if all the people in government, and those they drag into their morass, were not throwing away their productivity; if government were no more, then everyone would be productive, trading value for value

"City services" aren't services; they are coercive monopolies funded via extortion; those in government can't "own" anything, because their so-called property and jurisdiction are based on coerced communism

Imagine no more DMV, TSA, and other tyrannical organizations...
Imagine amazing advances in free market transportation...
Imagine amazing advances advances in life-extension...
Imagine the newfound levels of respect (of self and others) in a society of complete liberty...

Let's hope this next decade will be better than the last one regarding prospects for freedom...
Back to Basics on Property and Competition by Jeffrey A. Tucker
Property rights aren't respected by governments in civilization; "laws" created by a coercive monopoly infringe on them daily
People in the marketplace are the ones who respect property rights, not government
Laws, and the people who make (and interpret) them, seek to control others, not respect freedom and justice
Property rights exist to make distinctions concerning who owns what and who can therefore utilize what, without conflict or confusion
Plagiarism is generally frowned up, and provides a marketplace check against confusion and fraud charges
The tentacles of statism in the realm of IP are pervasive, as are the unseen costs of IP laws
"Anti-trust" law was created by gangsters with no good intentions
A "competitive" marketplace is just one in which people bring values to others unimpeded
An Objectivist Recants on IP
The principle of self-ownership represents the unification of liberty and property
IP fosters rampant legal conflict, on account of it contradicting real property rights
