Please enjoy my recent conversation with Jeff Till. Herein we discussed how he became a Voluntaryist, classified like a number, treated like a subject, societal sadism, seen vs. unseen, deschooling oneself, exposing the gun in the room, Taoism, oldest libertarian/Voluntaryist philosophy, explaining unschooling/homeschooling gently, broken window fallacy, exiting the Matrix, opportunity costs, socialization problem, obedience to authority, pro-government messages in cartoons and childhood literature, a la carte government school, unschoolers, homeschoolers, and Voluntaryists are generally well read, carbon copy of one’s parents, corporal punishment, moral/intellectual advancement of the species, question everything, focusing on the path rather than the goal, kindness is revolutionary, homework robs family time, learning by mimicry, blame the institution of “government school” not teachers, minimum wage skills after 12 years of indoctrination, homeschoolers/unschoolers want to work in the private sector and government school kids want to work for government and much more!

A practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.
