Stefan will discuss virtue, ethics and the burden of moral responsibility. We'll discuss the non-aggression principle and how it is violated in society and government. Stefan explains how more education is not the answer to help humanity but action to do what we already know is. Additionally, we discuss language, manipulation, relativism, violence from the state and the ripple effect. In the second hour, we address the idea of no government, which can manifest new ways to solve problems. We talk about government waste, destruction and government created problems. Stefan emphasizes the importance of changing society through our children, beginning at home with our parenting. Stefan philosophizes about truth and freedom. What is it? How do we get it? He mentions how freedom can be food for tyranny as it helps the government grow. Stefan talks about how violence is at the center of our society. Is it too late to turn things around? At the end we speak about empathy, aggression and root causes verses symptoms.
