  • Lemonade and Raw Milk Rebels (Video)

    Lemonade and Raw Milk Rebels (Video) They came to Washington DC from cities and small towns, from near and far, to break the law. Their crime? Selling raw milk and lemonade without permits nor licenses. Fortunately, the civil disobedience went well. Unlike last year the police didn't interfere and...

  • Re: Morality vs. legality of child neglect

    Roderick Long wrote an excellent article on this subject. He concluded that A woman who voluntarily bears a child but later changes her mind does not have the right simply to abandon her child, but must care for it until she can arrange for a substitute caretaker. Here is the link to the article which...

  • Re: Libertarian Child Rearing

    One of the greatest resources for a parent who is interested in developing the curiosity of a young child would be the works of Maria Montessori. There is no other theory of education that recognzes the innate abilities and nature of the child as a learner. This book is a fabulous start The Basic Ideas...

  • LaVeyan Satanism

    I was wondering if anyone has read Anton LaVey's "The Satanic Bible". For all of you who don't know, LaVeyan Satanism is an atheistic 'religion'. It's more of a set of ideals, but you know. I finished his book sometime last year, and I have to say I agreed with a lot of...

  • Libertarian children

    What are different libertarian theories on status of children? Do they have property rights? For their own bodies? Are they treated as independent actors? Are they in custody of their parents/caretakers? What if they are abused? Does aggression towards children by their parents makes a defensive aggression...

  • Re: Child Slavery

    There is nothing more saddening or devastating than mass unemployment such as exists in countries such as Mexico or India. I have visited Asia many times on Business in the last century. Crime, family abandonment, divorce, selling your 12 year old (and younger) daughters to brothels, selling your 12...

  • YouTube resources.

    I thought I would share some interesting YouTube channels that offer serious topics on more than just economics. This stuff ranges from education, to psychology, and other ideas. I believe these folks offer up great discussions, interesting thought experiments, and helpful knowledge for how to help the...

  • Re: Do you teach your children Austrian Economics/Anarcho-Capitalism?

    Right now, I am struggling to teach my kids not to fight with each other. I reckon it will take them a while to accept the "initiate no aggression" part. Seriously though, I think the best lesson that any parent should learn is that kids imitate. When a kid randomly and frantically grabs stuff...

    [quote user="Nathyn"]As I said, according to Dr. Evil, we can dump our kids out in the wilderness.[/quote]The benefits of abolishing all slavery, even looking at this from a utilitarian standpoint rather than the natural law standpoint I commonly employ, are far greater than the negative consequences...

    [quote user="Nathyn"]Why should Murray Rothbard's property rights matter, but not the lives of children ?[/quote]The axiom of self-ownership is essential, for without it, there would be nothing to stand in the way of Smith's claim to own Brown. It is because Brown owns himself, and...
