I always get asked why I promote youth rights and alt-education systems. Always have even when I (thought I) was right-libertarian.
Societal change starts with the youth. Even many here probably aren't "woke" enough, haven't internalized critical concepts that go against our authoritarian upbringing. You want to see a more free, democratic and libertarian world? Start by challenging authoritarian attitudes we communicate to kids in the home, the school, and in how we make community decisions
Trying to introduce my nephew to participatory democracy by having family votes. Kids are deliberately trained to regard democratic participation cynically with no experience with them (nothing democratic about schools, for example) so I thought this might help introduce the idea that their opinions and feelings count.
It's telling that there are chore apps, censorship, monitoring tools GALORE for Android, but tools for implementing liquid democracy within a family or small group barely exist.
Just another for the #introductions here
Aussie left libertarian. No surprise there.
