The way our parents were raised is not the we should be raising our children.
They trusted the government to take care of them, are we so sure that’s the case today?
We cannot continue to parent the way our parents did, the world has changed and we must do so as well. If we want to maintain our freedoms & live as sovereign individuals, we need to stop stifling the rebellious nature of our children.
Super Hoorah Gun photo aside, there’s some truth to the notion that the common man can fight back against their rulers.
This truth only holds weight if the common civilian has the mindset of freedom first and that’s something I see many parents literally beating out of their children, both verbally & physically.
Tell me, how many times have you told your children, “do this thing because I said so“?
How is a child raised in an environment where they are conditioned to blindly submit to authority ever supposed to demand accountability from their boss or government?
Forcing compliance through aggression builds toxic shame and models lower-order thinking that will trap the child into using lower-order thinking as an adult. What are some ways fathers model negative behaviors? Yelling, use of punishment or threat, physically imposing postures or actions including spanking. Continually dismissing a child’s needs either aggressively or passively sends the message that the child’s needs are not important. They will internalize this and may fail to develop their own sense of self-worth.– Anthony Jan 2020
His angle is that by using aggression on a child and conditioning the child to adapt behaviors designed to keep the parent happy and free from anger translates to their relationships.
Ultimately to the point where men become “nice guys” who will, instead of avoiding making their parents mad, will do everything in their power to not upset their girlfriend or wife. Basically, these become the men who will bend over backwards for everyone until their spine snaps in order to please and avoid confrontation.
Why does this not apply to blind obedience to perceived authority as well?
How to live a free life
How many of you reading this were told to:
- Get good grades
- Go to college
- Work hard at your job
- Retire and enjoy your “freedom”?
Basically, be a worker bee for a majority of your life and maybe you’ll get a kickback when you’re in your
All of the trust in the message above is that you are to place your trust in your overlords. They’ll be the ones who return the favor and “take care of you” once you’ve put in the hours they find necessary.
At no point was the message of free thinking and action pushed, why is that?
Because in the not too distant past, there was a loyalty from government and companies to the worker and vice versa.
That’s gone yet the pervasive mindset of, “Do as you’re told” remains…
It’s past time we stop raising adults who default to blind servitude.
Unfortunately, the only way for us to do that is for us to stop parenting like it’s the 1950’s and start parenting like a father fit for modern times.
Stop telling your children, “because I said so“: Instead take the time to tell them why they need to be doing what they’re doing.
Positional authority has a time and place; I was in the military for 8 years, I get it. That time is not every time and that place is not every place. A leader knows when to empower those he leads to growing their wings and making their own decisions.
- Raise your children to be independent thinkers.
- Raise them to take their own path and not the one you took or others believe is correct.
- Raise them to believe in themselves and to question everything around them.
American Strength comes from Independent Thinkers
I understand that not all readers are American, but I am and that is all I know.
My country has given us freedoms, unfortunately many of those have been voluntarily abdicated by my fellow citizens who have relinquished their responsibility to maintain and instead have renounced them to the “powers that be“.
Not just Americans but all human beings should be questioning the intent of those in control.
Why are they doing what they are doing?
As parents, we should be proud to see our children going against the narrative and choosing vocational schools over amassing 6 figures in school loan debt for the sake of “the almighty degree“.
We should be proud of our children for taking control over their money and investing in Crypto and new technologies.
We should be proud that our children are pushing against those looking to claim dominion over their life path and spirit at large.
Don’t continue to push the outdated model of parenting which you were brought up under. If you continue to do so, know that you’re doing a disservice to your children.
It’s 2020 and times have changed, keep up.
