One. Spanking isn't necessary (for YOUR children). Your two children do not represent all of humanity.
Two. Most children are conditioned to accept a parents use of force and authority because their first memories are of a time when you use force on them constantly. You physically move them where you want them to be. You physically dress them how you want them dressed, and put them in the bed and room you force them to sleep in. They are used to your use of force so they naturally assume you have that authority. It is only through this "negotiating" and passive parenting that they begin to think that you don't have authority over them. Your kids may not need spanked, but it is not because these progressive parenting techniques just work better. It is because progressive parents ignore the force they used on their children and pretend like their relationship was always voluntary.

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