This is an informal drinks event to discuss Libertarian theories, recent news and events in general, the state of libertarianism in the various parties and in the culture.
To get us started Jan Iwanik will speak on the non-aggression principle and children. Jan's online exploration with NAP in adult interactions includes any kind of interaction that is "unwanted" so his approach to parenting is consequently "honest, non-coercive, needs-based and connection-oriented".
Here is a preview:
Children are semi-slaves. They eat, play, sleep, and spend their free time in ways chosen by their parents, often against children’s will. It is normal practice to ban children from certain activities and games. Children are forced to go to schools which they often hate and stay there to do things they do not enjoy. In the UK and US most children experience corporal punishment at home, something grown-ups have abolished for themselves long ago.
If parenting is not a part of your life, still do come along for an evening of informal conversation on any other topic.
