Asking children questions about liberty!Submitted by jja on Thu, 07/26/2012 - 02:57
Hi, liberty lovers!
Now I have always had the outlook that the opinion of the youth is always the most valid.
Now that seems like a really hit or miss thing, and some people (especially old Republicans--I've met a lot!) would totally disagree.
Now I've set out to begin a project that would either prove or disprove this OR it could end up being nothing more than just entertaining. I want to create a YouTube video where children are shown answering questions about liberty. They obviously have to be worded in a way the children understand, and be somewhat general and NOT manipulative. I'm hoping that their answers make the liberty movement look good! I'm hoping older folks watch it and see that liberty is something that people are born with and it is only taken away from them when it is conditioned out of them.
If it's a success (or even when it's not) I might want to do a video with similar or exact same questions posed to teenagers, and see how similar or different their answers might be from young children.
I think it would be very interesting and could also teach us the ways in which to work on our children to instill the concept of liberty into them. I have a 6-year-old, and am always looking for ways in which to help her understand these concepts.
I need the people here at Daily Paul to help me come up with a large variety of questions to ask these children. I will give credit. Any other feedback/comments are welcomed and appreciated. I am not made of glass. :)
Love to you all!
