Philosophical Parenting: Dealing with Toddler Tantrums
 
14:58
"As a non spanking parent, what do you do with your toddler if he won't leave the playground when it's time to go? I've tried telling him I'm going and he's going to be left alone and I hide so he doesn't see me, but he doesn't care."

19:33
Stefan Molyneux, host of Freedomain Radio, tries to seduce Peter Schiff into going *all the way* - to a truly voluntary society. A spirited debate from the Peter Schiff radio show, April 3, 2012 http://www.schiffradio.com Freedomain Radio is the largest and most popular philosophy show on the web - http://www.freedomainradio.com Peter Schiff is one of the few non-biased investment advisors (not committed solely to the short side of the market) to have correctly called the current bear market before it began and to have positioned his clients accordingly. As a result of his accurate forecasts on the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, subprime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar, he is becoming increasingly more renowned. He has been quoted in many of the nation's leading newspapers, including The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Investor's Business Daily, The Financial Times, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Dallas Morning News, The Miami Herald, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Arizona Republic, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Christian Science Monitor, and appears regularly on CNBC, CNN, Fox News, Fox Business Network, and Bloomberg T.V. His best-selling book, "Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse" was published by Wiley & Sons in February of 2007. His second book, "The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets: How to Keep your Portfolio Up When the Market is Down" was published by Wiley & Sons in October of 2008. Mr. Schiff began his investment career as a financial consultant with Shearson Lehman Brothers, after having earned a degree in finance and accounting from U.C. Berkeley in 1987. A financial professional for over twenty years he joined Euro Pacific in 1996 and has served as its President since January 2000. An expert on money, economic theory, and international investing, Peter is a highly recommended broker by many leading financial newsletters and investment advisory services.

How to Make the Case for Freedom!
 
24:04
Freedomain Radio Listener Emails, 5 December 2012 - Do Boys Learn Differently from Girls? - How to Best Make the Case for Freedom? - What about Right to Work Legislation? - Is It Initiating Force to Get Your Children to Do Chores? Right to Work Bill Passes! Do you think boys learn differently than girls? Hi Stef, I recently have gotten into your videos and can't stop watching. You lay out your ideas brilliantly and concisely. There is a point of confusion that I have with regard to authority though. I understand the initiation of force is universally wrong, but when you reprimand your for doing things socially abnormal, but ultimately harmless, e.g. eating with her hands at a restaurant or telling an obese person that they're fat, how is that not initiating force? What punishment is supportive to raising a healthy child and when should you respect her self-ownership to say truthful things to others that Also, how do you handle teaching responsibility? You can't tell your child to do chores, so what if she refuses to do what you ask? Since she is an autonomous person, do you just concede and move on with your life? Is that conducive to raising a healthy child? Also, is it possible to be friends with somebody who has authority over you? I am good friends with a coworker who just got promoted and is now my "authority"... she can't fire me but she is considered my superior still. You give general principles for the authority / subordinate relationship but sometimes it seems like those principles may come into conflict or contradict. Stefan, Let me begin by saying that I'm a huge fan-- your work has been among the most influential in forming the very foundations of my beliefs, philosophical and political. Here's my problem: If corporations and governments are merely people coming together and associating to form these entities of real world power and authority (I believe they are insofar as corporations/governments are not the buildings/stock tickers/presidential seals etc.) then, in rejecting them, are we not rejecting the aspects of human nature that drive people towards these associations? Where's the disconnect? Just as the banks were not fined for their malfeasance and responsibility for our current economic downturn (rather, the penalties were passed along to shareholders and the general public via the fed and our debt based economy) how are we to separate the actions of "government" from the acts of the individuals who comprise government? Isn't government the natural result of our being social animals that fear insecurity and crave some sense of order? In other words-- at what point did we go wrong? Even if you just point me in the direction of one of your past videos your response would be greatly appreciated. Hey Stef, First I suppose I should say thank you, for helping to enlighten us all. I saw your video on sociopaths, and thought I would try the against me argument. And try I did albeit without the same eloquence you have in your videos. I approached a friend and starting talking about it, and was afraid to find that she did support violence against my person. In the end she claimed that paying taxes was a requirement of the society we live in, and that me and her must have differing views of living peacefully and violence. Questions were also brought up about maintaining roads, minimum wage regulations and healthcare. I tried to explain that more efficient private would take the place of public companies, to whit she asked about the poor people that could not afford any sort of healthcare... I tried to say that charities would step in and help, and if not...? Unfortunately that is where my arguments generally fall flat on their face. What will the absolutely poor do if they can't get help from anyone? Also, I know it is lazy of me, but do you have videos on how a post government world might run? I would like something to show her that gives a more detailed example of possibilities than I can muster flustered mid-debate. Again, my thanks.

How Government Solved the Health Care Crisis!
 
08:42
Today, we are constantly being told, the United States faces a health care crisis. Medical costs are too high, and health insurance is out of reach of the poor. The cause of this crisis is never made very clear, but the cure is obvious to nearly everybody: government must step in to solve the problem. Eighty years ago, Americans were also told that their nation was facing a health care crisis. Then, however, the complaint was that medical costs were too low, and that health insurance was too accessible. But in that era, too, government stepped forward to solve the problem. And boy, did it solve it! In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, one of the primary sources of health care and health insurance for the working poor in Britain, Australia, and the United States was the fraternal society. Fraternal societies (called "friendly societies" in Britain and Australia) were voluntary mutual-aid associations. Their descendants survive among us today in the form of the Shriners, Elks, Masons, and similar organizations, but these no longer play the central role in American life they formerly did. As recently as 1920, over one-quarter of all adult Americans were members of fraternal societies. (The figure was still higher in Britain and Australia.) Fraternal societies were particularly popular among blacks and immigrants. (Indeed, Teddy Roosevelt's famous attack on "hyphenated Americans" was motivated in part by hostility to the immigrants' fraternal societies; he and other Progressives sought to "Americanize" immigrants by making them dependent for support on the democratic state, rather than on their own independent ethnic communities.) The principle behind the fraternal societies was simple. A group of working-class people would form an association (or join a local branch, or "lodge," of an existing association) and pay monthly fees into the association's treasury; individual members would then be able to draw on the pooled resources in time of need. The fraternal societies thus operated as a form of self-help insurance company. Turn-of-the-century America offered a dizzying array of fraternal societies to choose from. Some catered to a particular ethnic or religious group; others did not. Many offered entertainment and social life to their members, or engaged in community service. Some "fraternal" societies were run entirely by and for women. The kinds of services from which members could choose often varied as well, though the most commonly offered were life insurance, disability insurance, and "lodge practice." "Lodge practice" refers to an arrangement, reminiscent of today's HMOs, whereby a particular society or lodge would contract with a doctor to provide medical care to its members. The doctor received a regular salary on a retainer basis, rather than charging per item; members would pay a yearly fee and then call on the doctor's services as needed. If medical services were found unsatisfactory, the doctor would be penalized, and the contract might not be renewed. Lodge members reportedly enjoyed the degree of customer control this system afforded them. And the tendency to overuse the physician's services was kept in check by the fraternal society's own "self-policing"; lodge members who wanted to avoid future increases in premiums were motivated to make sure that their fellow members were not abusing the system...

"Even if we did achieve what we wanted with a very small state, we'd just be resetting the clock back to 1776 and it would roll forward exactly the same way again," says FreeDomain Radio's Stefan Molyneux. Reason magazine's Matt Welch sat down with Molyneux at FreedomFest 2012 and discussed why he thinks the libertarian ideal of a small state will inevitably grow, and why the absence of any form of the state is the only answer. "If you look at America, which was the experiment of the smallest conceivable government, what grows out of that is the largest government the world has ever seen," says Molyneux.

End the Fed!
 
13:00
Full speech: http://board.freedomainradio.com/forums/t/36783.aspx Evil is costly -- the initiation of force is expensive and risky. Violence makes enemies, starts turf wars, sickens the soul, kills love, ends lives... What stops the growth of evil? The same thing that stops the growth of any sickness -- pain, treatment and cure. Evil is very, very expensive. War -- the greatest evil -- is staggeringly expensive. The Pentagon loses literally billions of dollars under its couches every single year. It uses a million bullets in to put just one bullet into another human being. War shreds economies, minds, hearts, relationships, health, wealth, freedom -- war destroys civilizations. What stops war? The same thing that stops any gambling addict -- running out of money. War is stopped only by poverty. When you cannot pay the soldiers, well - blessed become the peacemakers. War is limited by economics, by costs, by the hard wall of hard currency. Unless -- unless war is - not free, but profitable... This is where the Federal Reserve comes in. Who pays for war? A defensive war, unprovoked and unavoidable, sure, we would all chip in for that. But a lying swaggering endless missile-hurling overseas mass murder? To cover current government spending, taxes would have to be raised almost 60%. We have wars and bailouts and untold bribery and tax cuts -- paid for by what? Who lends to a country hell bent on Empire? No one, because war and empire drain the treasury - look at England after the 2nd world war -- ran out of money, and closed down the Empire. Lend to warmongers, what will they pay you back with? Broken pottery? Bloodstained bodies? Bones? Dust? Lamentations? War is not profitable, it is not a growth industry. It grows like a tumor grows, at the expense of life. How, then, is it fed? It is fed, by the Fed. China has lend the US a little over a trillion dollars. The Federal Reserve has lend and created almost 7 trillion dollars. 7 trillion dollars -- that's 8 times the spending on the Iraq war -- 12 times the spending in Afghanistan. Over the last 6 years, there have been very few new taxes -- even though total fiscal spending has risen nearly $1 trillion per year. For the Federal Reserve creates the free money that makes evil profitable. 7 trillion dollars covers the bills for a lot of evil. If there was truth in advertising, the Federal Reserve would have this slogan: Free Evil! Or The Federal Reserve: Turning Evil into Profits since 1913! And is not just the overseas wars... How long would the trillion dollar war on drugs last if everyone got a bill for enforcing it? How long would 700+ military bases last if everyone got a bill for them? [finger snap] So -- what is the Fed relying on? How can letting the ultra-powerful type whatever they want into their own bank accounts possibly last? The short answer is, it can't. History is littered with the dry bones of hundreds of paper currencies -- not backed by gold, or commodities, or anything more real than the vampiric promises of politicians. But -- how is it lasting? It lasts because we do not love our children enough. To avoid change, to avoid conflict, to avoid the peaceful revolution of real money, we are sacrificing our children. The children in pigtails, the children in the crib, the children in the womb -- even the children who are as yet just a gleam in their daddy's eyes. We are Aztecs. Our children's futures are being sold on the auction block, to the highest bidder, to avoid conflict and virtue in the here and now. Their futures have become "futures." They will be taxed at 60, 70, 80 percent or more to pay for this grand canyon of debt -- and it will not be enough, it will never be enough, for the Lords of the New Serfs are insatiable my friends. Zombies get their fill and wander off. There is no logical end to the escalation of human greed save gulags, leg irons and mushroom clouds. If a corporation were diluting baby food to the point where babies were starving to death, would we not act? If there was poison in the water that wrecked their livers and brains, would we not act?

Great Myths of the Great Depression!
 
01:19:01
www.fee.org/articles/great-myths-of-the-great-depression/ Many volumes have been written about the Great Depression of 1929-1941 and its impact on the lives of millions of Americans. Historians, economists and politicians have all combed the wreckage searching for the "black box" that will reveal the cause of the calamity. Sadly, all too many of them decide to abandon their search, finding it easier perhaps to circulate a host of false and harmful conclusions about the events of seven decades ago. Consequently, many people today continue to accept critiques of free-market capitalism that are unjustified and support government policies that are economically destructive. How bad was the Great Depression? Over the four years from 1929 to 1933, production at the nation's factories, mines and utilities fell by more than half. People's real disposable incomes dropped 28 percent. Stock prices collapsed to one-tenth of their pre-crash height. The number of unemployed Americans rose from 1.6 million in 1929 to 12.8 million in 1933. One of every four workers was out of a job at the Depression's nadir, and ugly rumors of revolt simmered for the first time since the Civil War...

From 2006 until early 2007, Murphy was employed as a research and portfolio analyst with Laffer Associates, an economic and investment consultancy firm. Murphy is a senior fellow in business and economic studies at the Pacific Research Institute, and is an adjunct scholar and frequent speaker at the Ludwig von Mises Institute. He writes a column for Townhall.com and has also written for LewRockwell.com. He is an adjunct scholar at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and an economist for the Institute for Energy Research. Murphy appeared before the United States House Committee on Financial Services on 24 July 2008 to discuss oil prices and the United States dollar. His work has been cited by Walter Block, with whom Murphy has also published. Murphy is a frequent radio guest. He appeared on "Free Markets With Dr. Mike Beitler" on the Voice America Business network on October 30, 2008, and has also been featured as a guest on The Political Cesspool. In 2010, Murphy wrote Lessons for the Young Economist, an introductory textbook aimed at younger students. "The idea is that newcomers to economics — whether young people or even adults who have never read deeply in the Austrian tradition — should read this book first and then move on to the works of Hazlitt and Rothbard."

Freedom Does Not Fail! Stefan Molyneux Speaks to the Georgia Libertarian Convention
 
18:45
http://www.lpgeorgia.com Steps to Determine Market Failure... Market failure is generally defined as the inability of a free market to provide necessary and demanded goods and services, usually due to difficulties in the pricing model. Everyone benefits from roads, everyone wants street lights, but how do we pay for them? The classic example is a lighthouse -- all sailors and their passengers want to be warned of rocks, but who pays for the service? Market failure is related to the "problem of the commons," or the tendency of farmers to let their livestock overgraze commonly-owned fields. The proposed solution to the problem of the commons -- a problem of collective non-ownership and a lack of moral hazard -- is almost always the State. This is a truly bizarre non-answer -- if the problem is collective non-ownership and a lack of moral hazard, how can the State, which is the very definition of collective non-ownership and a lack of moral hazard, conceivably solve these problems? Pretending to solve problematic grazing by creating a monstrous agency of social violence with the ability to wage war, print money and run up national debts is like curing a hangnail with a nuclear bomb. There are a number of conditions that need to be met to quality a problem as a market failure. First of all, the demand needs to be strong enough to potentially divert scarce resources into solving the problem. If only one person has a specific ailment, entrepreneurs will be unlikely to search for a cure, since the demand is so low. If the demand is strong enough, but the solution is impossible, this cannot be called market failure. We would all love to fly unaided, like Superman, but the laws of physics sadly preclude this. The lack of a magical flying suit cannot be called market failure. If an activity is banned by the State, this also cannot be called market failure. The market has not failed to serve cocaine users in friendly local shops, this solution is just prohibited. If an activity would not exist in the absence of the State -- or would be so changed as to be almost unrecognizable -- it cannot be called market failure if voluntarism fails to provide it. There would be no war on drugs in a voluntary society, so it cannot be called "market failure" if free people refuse to lock each other up for personal and peaceful activities. In the same way, it cannot be called "market failure" if a truly free market school does not give teachers a few months off in the summer to help with long-gone farming activities. Roads were taken over by governments -- they were formerly provided by private companies. The same is true of health care, welfare, education, you name it. It cannot be called "market failure" if an activity formerly provided by the free market was taken over by the State. So -- to qualify as market failure, the following conditions must be met: 1. There must be sufficient demand to drive resource allocation. 2. The price must be something people are willing and able to pay. 3. The solution must be physically possible. 4.

Anatomy of an Epidemic - The Explosion of Mental Illness in the West
 
01:01:13
Buy Book: http://www.fdrurl.com/whitaker Robert Whitaker discusses his book 'Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America' In this astonishing and startling book, award-winning science and history writer Robert Whitaker investigates a medical mystery: Why has the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States tripled over the past two decades? Every day, 1,100 adults and children are added to the government disability rolls because they have become newly disabled by mental illness, with this epidemic spreading most rapidly among our nation's children. What is going on? Anatomy of an Epidemic challenges readers to think through that question themselves. First, Whitaker investigates what is known today about the biological causes of mental disorders. Do psychiatric medications fix "chemical imbalances" in the brain, or do they, in fact, create them? Researchers spent decades studying that question, and by the late 1980s, they had their answer. Readers will be startled—and dismayed—to discover what was reported in the scientific journals. Then comes the scientific query at the heart of this book: During the past fifty years, when investigators looked at how psychiatric drugs affected long-term outcomes, what did they find? Did they discover that the drugs help people stay well? Function better? Enjoy good physical health? Or did they find that these medications, for some paradoxical reason, increase the likelihood that people will become chronically ill, less able to function well, more prone to physical illness? This is the first book to look at the merits of psychiatric medications through the prism of long-term results. Are long-term recovery rates higher for medicated or unmedicated schizophrenia patients? Does taking an antidepressant decrease or increase the risk that a depressed person will become disabled by the disorder? Do bipolar patients fare better today than they did forty years ago, or much worse? When the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) studied the long-term outcomes of children with ADHD, did they determine that stimulants provide any benefit? By the end of this review of the outcomes literature, readers are certain to have a haunting question of their own: Why have the results from these long-term studies—all of which point to the same startling conclusion—been kept from the public? In this compelling history, Whitaker also tells the personal stories of children and adults swept up in this epidemic. Finally, he reports on innovative programs of psychiatric care in Europe and the United States that are producing good long-term outcomes. Our nation has been hit by an epidemic of disabling mental illness, and yet, as Anatomy of an Epidemic reveals, the medical blueprints for curbing that epidemic have already been drawn up.

Additional Clarifications on the Current Strike by Teachers in Chicago. Freedomain Radio is the largest and most popular philosophy show on the web - http://www.freedomainradio.com Book: http://www.amazon.com/The-Worm-Apple-Destroying-Education/dp/0060096616 A Teacher (and NEA Member) Reviews the Book "This is a well-written, well documented attack on the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). . The premise is, as the title clearly states, that since the rise of teacher unions in the mid-1960s, the quality of education has dropped, innovation has been compromised and the cost of education has skyrocketed. He backs it up with a ton of statistics. To the credit of Brimelow, this could have been a stale listing of statistics punctuated by charts. However, he writes in a lively style and backs up his assertions with independent sources of information as well as damning quotes from movers and shakers in the NEA and the AFT. As an unsatisfied member of the NEA, I found the book to be quite eye-opening. It was also interesting to me since the Indiana branch of the NEA (Indiana State Teachers Association) was the source of a lot of his material and that is my State Association. This is a thought-provoking and challenging book. He does not just stand there and point out problems. He also 24 suggestions at the end of his book, although he is quick to note that this is a wish list and it will be extremely unlikely that half of these could ever see the light of day."
