The War for Children's Minds, p. 208
by Stephen Law

In this book, Stephen Law aims to re-evaluate the liberal approach to morality, and attack authoritarian rhetoric head-on, calling for children to be educated in ethics grounded in philosophy and the values of the enlightenment. The aim of the book is to expose the flaws in arguments calling for a return to authoritarian moral education, as well as to show that not all moral viewpoints are equal. Its fundamental focus is on a defense of a rationally considered life, and a related attack on authoritarian systems of government; as well as authoritarian parental styles.

Anyone can read the book and join in the discussion.

$4 Suggested donation, FREE for CFI Members (www.cfiontario.org)
