Tell me how to follow the non-aggression principle with your 1 year old. How do you feed your baby, cloth them, make them sleep in a crib, etc. without using "aggressive" force to control their actions? How do you change their diaper when they keep wiggling their legs and don't want to cooperate? Do you just negotiate with them? How do you ensure they buckle into their car seat even though they don't like it? You just use magical parenting? You can't make me buckle my safety belt. I'm an adult. You can't make me wear the clothes you want me to wear, or eat what you want me to eat, or live in the room you've picked out for me or the house you've picked out. I'm an adult and the NAP works great in explaining how you should treat me. It works terribly in explaining how you raise your child. NO PARENT EVER has followed the NAP in raising their child. If they did, their child would be dead. I'm not exaggerating. If you treat your child like an adult and don't use aggression to keep them alive and use force to ensure their safety and welbeing, they will die. The NAP doesn't apply to the natural dictatorship that is the parent/child relationship.

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