Complete Liberty Podcast 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.

The easiest way to podcatch is to load all the past episodes into iTunes:

Alternatively, you can use the libsy rss feed for all past episodes:

However, the comments on the Libsyn page have been deactivated, so it's best to use the Complete Liberty Podcast category feed here if you want to throw in your two cents :)

Also, the first ten episodes of Complete Liberty Podcast are actually the audiobook (shows 11 and higher are the podcast episodes). So, if you'd like to read the book first and/or you're new to the concepts of a voluntary society, here's the page to begin listening:

Also, Stitcher is a handy option for listening on your mobile phone, phablet, or tablet:

Episode 147 - Unconditional parenting, part nine

By Wes Bertrand

In this episode I cover the first half of Chapter Eight: Love Without Strings Attached in the book Unconditional Parenting: Moving From Rewards And Punishments To Love And Reason by Alfie Kohn

Some of Ayn Rand's views on love...

Life is what you make of it; your sense of life essentially colors your experiences yet doesn't alter objective reality; no one's needs ought to be sacrificed in the process of living happily

Nonviolent communication is truly a language of life, essential for adults and children--for families

Instead of offer criticism, strive to complain effectively...

Helpful and comprehensive psychotherapeutic workbook to compassionately connect you with your own child-self, among other subconscious facets: The Art Of Self-Discovery

Episode 146 - Unconditional parenting, part eight

By Wes Bertrand

In this episode I cover Chapter Seven: Principles Of Unconditional Parenting in the book Unconditional Parenting: Moving From Rewards And Punishments To Love And Reason by Alfie Kohn

bringing parents and children together...

Parental rationalizations for coercing children are quite similar to governmental rationalizations for coercing "citizens"

we are fallible beings, so making mistakes is a natural part of life

"Children construct a theory about their own motives based in part on our assumptions about their motives, and then they act accordingly: 'You think I'm just plain bad and need to be controlled all the time? Fine. Watch me act as though you're right.'" Kohn p.211

"We can help kids to develop good values by treating them as though they were already motivated by those values. They thereby come to believe what's best about themselves and live up to our trust in them." Kohn p.213

It's clear that parents need to learn the process of nonviolent communication, so they can foster win/win, life-enriching interactions with children, in which no one's needs are sacrificed

Episode 145 - Steve Jobs, Apple, producers vs governments

By Wes Bertrand

Secrets From Apple's Genius Bar: Full Loyalty, No Negativity

Video: Jobs Pitches New ‘Mothership’ to Approving Cupertino City Council | Epicenter |

The question that must be asked of those in "city governments" (or in any "government") is: what would you do in a free market, in the absence of your coercive organization?
And how can liberty activists help them answer that important question?

The pervasive distrust in humans to make beneficial and helpful choices for themselves and others is directly reflected in conditional parenting tactics and the various rewards and punishments of operant conditioning in families, in schools, and in all governmental systems
