Home School vs. Government School Cage Match: How One Couple Won At Both

Home school vs. government school: Home school parents and veterans of the Government’s Day Prisons For Kids Age 5-18 join me to discuss both sides of the education equation. We also crush three major myths about home schooling.

Here’s what you’ll hear about in this episode:

  • The history of compulsory education, and how it came to America
  • Why government schools are not interested in teaching kids how to think critically, and think for themselves (and what they do instead)
  • The best option to government schools
  • What happened when Brian and Carrie’s young son declined to take off his jacket in school (and what they did in response)
  • Bully government school teacher terrifies children
  • How one kid outsmarted the government school system (he didn’t learn how to do it in school!)
  • Why Brian and Carrie let their kids decide whether to home school or go to public schools
  • A great question to ask kids: “Who owns you?”
  • Why parents don’t need to be “qualified” teachers in order for their kids to learn in home school
  • How elements of unschooling and traditional learning can be combined to create a superior learning environment
  • Free and low-cost home school curriculum resources
  • How your child can earn two associates degrees by the time she’s 18
  • Why kids learn more when they focus on their interests and passions
  • An $8 per month membership you can use to supplement other learning materials (you might be a member already!)
  • Why catering to your child’s particular learning style is more effective than the government’s archaic, rigid, one-size-fits-all classrooms
  • How the learning experience can be crushed by the reward AND punishment of conventional letter grades
  • The difference between education and learning
  • Three myths about home schooling, debunked
  • How and why to make home schooling work financially 
  • And much more!

light-bulbs-1125016_640

Emotional and Psychological Challenges in a Life of Liberty

Our Statist News Correspondent Kiki returns to co-hosting duties as we discuss the emotional and psychological challenges in a life of liberty. Kiki first appeared on the show in Episode 3, “Statist News: All the Propaganda That’s Fit to Print.”

Here’s what you’ll hear about in this episode:

  • Michael W. Dean of the Freedom Feens praises Libertarians on Fire (between 6:00 and 10:00, but listen to the whole show!)
  • A letter from a listener in reaction to Kiki’s appearance on Episode 3
  • What happened when I sent liberty books to everyone on my Christmas list
  • The pain of losing people in your life because of your beliefs
  • How I started getting articles published on LewRockwell.com, and why it caused a rift between my mom and me
  • Why it doesn’t bother me that my mom doesn’t listen to my podcast
  • Being in the “convincing game” sucks (and why Kiki hasn’t given up trying to convince others)
  • Why the innate yearning to be free is drummed out of individuals over the course of a 12-year sentence in the government’s day prisons for kids age 5-18
  • Two ways to avoid feeding parking meters
  • What I did when my neighbor played loud music in the middle of the night (and other things I could have done without calling the cops)
  • What you should never do with your gun (that cops do all the time) — something I saw with my own eyes for the first time
  • The potentially dangerous or even deadly consequences of calling the government’s prayer line
  • Victims of the State going to the State to solve a problem created by the State
  • The inevitable result of the State investigating cops who shoot mere mundanes
  • A judge with an agenda who caused a couple to waste $400,000 on legal fees
  • How voting for rulers results in destruction of the wealth, health and life of innocent victims
  • And much more!

Government Cops: Serving and Protecting Themselves – LOF #5

police-29859_640

Government Cops: Serving and Protecting Themselves

Government cops supposedly exist to serve and protect the public that pays their salaries and generous pensions.

But in reality, they only serve and protect themselves. Because of a combination of police unions, qualified immunity, and officer safety being paramount, cops are above the laws they enforce.

Join us for a stark look at the reality of modern policing in America:

  • What cops do (and what what they do NOT do)
  • A biblical story about the origin of police
  • What two cops did when they were called to rescue a woman drowning in a lake
  • How to snitch on your neighbors (and why you shouldn’t)
  • A couple places you can put your car registration sticker other than your licence plate
  • Do you own your home or rent? (Hint: you’re a renter, no matter what)
  • The actual size and material of The Thin Blue Line
  • Do we even need cops?
  • And much more!
