I’m told time travel is not possible. That’s a shame… boy did I have plans!
One of those plans would have been to give my younger self a whole bunch of books to read. I might even bribe my younger self with the following week’s lottery numbers as an incentive to read these books (I can be quite generous with my younger self). Continue reading “A book for the younger you”
The “for parents” topic is a very important component of Book of Liberty. After all, for those who have kids, if you would like to affect change in the world one of the most important roles you have in this context is being a responsible steward of your children. Raising a strong, moral, peaceful individual can have tremendous positive impact.
The non-aggression principle is best displayed through its application in interpersonal relations, of which peaceful parenting is one such strategy. Like many other topics covered by books on this site, this too can be controversial and in no way am I prescribing behavior or applying judgment.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but I do encourage the same rigor and logical consistency to be applied to your relationships with others in your life as we apply to the relationship between the individual and the State.
Topics such as homeschooling, Montessori, or other forms of unschooling can be found when browsing the “for parents” topic, as well as books for young readers. If you have a young reader at home, consider browsing this section for inspiration on books for them to read.
As a parent myself, I know how hard it is. There is definitely not a strict right and wrong (in many cases) and it’s even harder to implement in practice what you think in theory that you should be doing.
I, for one, would love to see the comments, insights and experiences of other parents in the books’ discussion threads in our members-only private Facebook group and hope to see you there too. And as always, thank you for reading!
Since the mission of Books of Liberty is to help you find content to free your mind, you can’t go wrong with clicking on personal freedom and seeing where it takes you.
Topics that are likely to be correlated with personal freedom include education and critical thinking, entrepreneurship or other means of achieving financial freedom in your life, physical and mental wellbeing, and for the parents out there we have books on peaceful parenting and some reading ideas for your own young readers.
The books within these topics are generally not ones you’d closely associate with the philosophy of liberty, and more often than not, written by authors who probably do not ascribe to the political or economic viewpoints of the majority of our members. But it’s exactly the reason why I wanted to create Books of Liberty – to bring together a wide variety of books that will enable you to ‘free yourself’ in every aspect of your life.
Let me know what you think about the synergy this brings to you, as you incorporate these topics with the traditional topics (e.g. politics, history and economics) that are more popular in these circles. And as always, thank you for reading!
