Do you hold your wife down and dress her against her will? No.
Do you hold your baby down and change his diaper against his will? Yes.
I realize this is an almost absurd example, but it is a clear example of how you use force against your children. The younger they are, the more force you use and the more you dictate their lives.
You just want to ignore these natural truths and argue this from the perspective of a dad who is spanking his 17 year old college bound kid with a logical thinking brain. Obviously that kind of "force" on a kid who can think fairly clearly and is almost an adult is a bit excessive and probably very counter productive.
That doesn't however discount the fact that the younger your child is, the more your force is necessary and acceptable. When you get to talking about toddlers and infants, your control over them is nearly complete tyranny.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
