5 Ways to Teach Liberty to Young Children

Kids should always be taught the truth. And personally, I think the sooner the better they be taught the truth about government. Government IS force. Government IS violence. Government could not possibly exist without violence or force (which is the threat of violence). — jtl, 419

Explaining that government generally uses violence to pursue its goals would be unsuitable for young children. It would encourage fear and mistrust. However, children can learn to distinguish between cooperation and coercion. Both involve people interacting. Cooperation is voluntary. Coercion involves threats or actual harm.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    ‘Miss’ S.O.S.-GonnaKillYa-Cortez graduated from Boston University.

    The toilet paper roll with the parchment coiled up inside is a good clue as to what college has become; a four year trip to the head.

    There are a whole bunch of engineering graduates who can’t check the oil or change a tire. Forget oil changes and tune-ups.

    Chemistry majors who can’t cook?? Math majors who can’t count change back??

    English majors who REALLY need that Big Chief Tablet??

    Communications majors who can’t use a CB??

    Accounting majors who can’t operate a 10-key…or even know what it is??

    Tie shoe laces??

    Let’s do odds on tying that neck-tie.

    So, absence of the practical stuff means they’re really good at the academic stuff then, right??

    Well,

    Most undergraduates(4 year degree) are at about eighth grade level when compared to 10 years ago(Dr. Larry J. Sechrest, about 20 years ago).

    Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, is a true mark of insanity (Albert Einstein quoting Benjamin Franklin).

    Public schools are one stop shops for extortion, assault, murder, contract killing, black mail, prostitution, drug trafficking…and propaganda.

    ‘These kids don’t have a chance…'(Clint Eastwood in ‘Gran Torino’).

    Unless the idea is to grow up to be a criminal, that HS diploma is a 13-year trip to the head.

    The kids can get a diploma by just sitting there.

    They actually have to study in order to pass a G.E.D. .

    Solution:
    Get your kids outta there.

    You don’t need it. They don’t need it.

    Fast track ’em to some money and a future that they can further build upon themselves and have it be the way they like it best.

    Showing them right and wrong is the parents’ job.
    It surely ain’t gonna happen at that public crime academy.

    Right now, teaching them how to read and write looks like the parents’ job too.

    Save some time and eliminate a lot of fear and hassle.

    There are resources for Scotching it rather well.

    Khan Academy is FREE!!

    If you cancel the daily fear of death and injury, along with the excessive practice of lining-up and sprinting through a rat maze, you can fit a 6-7 hour crime academy day into about 2-3 hours at home.

    Unless you have 25+ kids, you can beat the student:teacher ratios for almost everywhere.

    There’s the slow and stupid way they do it at the public crime academies, which is a loser’s approach that ain’t working.

    There’s smarter and faster. Think General Patton and get to your objective yesterday as opposed to tomorrow, if ever.

    Use Khan Academy and work through the stuff WITH your kids and be smarter than a 5th grader.

    The founder(Sal Khan) does very many of the lesson videos and is quite good.

    By the time your kids get through Khan’s 8th grade math course and Algebra1 course, they have more than they need to pass the math section on the G.E.D. .

    The Wylie ‘dummies’ series G.E.D. Review Prep is rather good for those who like books better. It also makes for a good companion if you like to do the computer stuff too.

    Using them together helps match up with the stuff you need to be able to understand, study for and pass, then you can skip the rest or look at it for fun.

    Passing standardized tests is what people need to be able to do coming out of public schools. E.T.S. writes very many of them. When it comes to getting certified, licensed, employed, or admitted to just about anything…’Here. Take this test.’.

    Public schools teach the needed content and study skills
    for passing standardized tests LAST, if at all.

    Khan Academy has a lot of standardized test-prep review sections as well as the academic stuff.

    Lynn Montross’ ‘War through the Ages’, when used as a companion with Khan’s history sections, is more than you need for GREAT understanding of world and American History. Despite it’s size, it’s a pretty good and easy read. The very latest edition that Montross put out (~1960s) has better maps and charts than the earlier editions. This here used one cost one dollar.

    Most history books that are less than 50 years old are…well, going to the head again??

    Get a Rand McNally Road Atlas, Truckers Edition.
    Get the kids to plan and navigate some road trips.
    Break out the calculator and a spiral notebook and do some figuring.
    Fuel. Sleep. Eat. How much. How soon. How fast. How slow. How long. How hot. How cold
    …and that’s why you learn maps, money and math stuff…

    Get a pretty good basketball sized globe and play ‘find a country’.
    This helps prevent college students from asking how long it takes
    to get from Texas to Germany…by car.

    The science kits that you can get at the arts and crafts stores are good. Many of them go to and through high school and college level. They have rockets and r/c stuff too.

    ‘Hobby-Lobby’ is pretty good about those 40%-off coupons. They even let you use them on top of a mark-down. A lot of people like the folks who run that outfit, too. They’re closed on Sunday.

    Park your kid on a tractor or riding lawn mower. That’s your practical driving course. Enjoy that parallel parking segment. Turn off the blades for that one.

    Work on old trucks and old tractors with your kids. If you’re around aviation, that’s even better.
    There’s your practical engineering course.

    If you like fishing and/or hunting, there’s your applied biology.

    Play cards, dominoes and monopoly for some more practical math and finance.

    Got a video game junky?

    There have been video games around for several decades that show people how to trade, organize and build portfolios. They’re just as addictive as the shoot-em-ups.

    The ‘tycoon’ series is pretty good. ‘Civilization’ is pretty good for Geo-politics and general strategy, despite some biases. ‘Civ’ is out to version V or VI.

    A lot of the sports video games have a ‘coach’ mode, where the user has to recruit and manage a roster; ‘hire em/bench em/fire em’.

    Playing the games on the schedule winds up being nearly a minor aspect…but winning IS your bottom line. Winners stick around. Losers do not.

    Talk about H.R. and organization, as well as the memory exercise involved with a 70-player roster.

    Laundry teaches practical chemistry.
    It teaches modern art when those brand
    new red socks turn all of your drawers pink.

    Home school, G.E.D. and community college track can be the fast track; more lucrative and cheaper too.

    ‘Junior’ can have a two year degree by the time he/she turns 18 or 19.

    After the G.E.D. , LOTS of community college A.A.S. two year degrees pay 50k+ coming outta the gate, and six figures very soon…chuh-CHING!!

    If you work for a third party at six or seven figures, you won’t have to for very long, and it beats the heck out of four years of zero income and LOTS of outcome.

    Rich at 20 is inherently better than a four year trip to the head that leaves you flat broke.

    When it is a question of
    money, everybody is
    of the same religion.
    (Voltaire)

    If one just LOVEs archaeology (or whatever) enough to go learn about it for eight years, one certainly has that option once the money part is solved.

    Some 50-year olds see locking horns in the classroom with the twenty year old competition, as a game-over at kickoff scenario; Buzzard Bait.

    See you all in the Kornfield…BR-549!
