I can pinpoint the moment I made up my mind about discipline...

It was during one of my first exposures to a mass grouping of libertarians when I saw Ron Paul speak for the first time in 2010. There was a couple there that brought their 3 or 4 kids, (and I have no doubt that they are at least well-intentioned parents), but their kids were OUT OF CONTROL. They were running around everywhere with no regard for their surroundings, and the parents just let them go. They were running into people and driving them nuts. I was annoyed and put up with it, but in retrospect I wish I would have confronted the parents.

If it takes a spanking here and there to teach your kids how to behave in civilized society, then so be it. My parents spanked us a few times when we were out of control in public or endangered our lives, and I know it worked.
