A new take on peaceful parenting brought to you by former professional educators who underwent a paradigm shift in 2010 that led them more in the direction of self-directed education. James and Taylor Davis have been peaceful parenting for years and will share their unique experience with you.
 
A podcast about voluntaryism, free markets, agorism, radical unschooling, peaceful parenting and self improvement.
 
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
