As much as I like and agree with Stefan Molyneux regarding the horrific crimes of both past and present governing authority, he's usually tends to come off as irrational and almost cult-like in his thinking, particularly when it comes to disciplining children. He is great at identifying problems, but off the map when it comes to solving them.
