"Discipline must come through liberty...
We do not consider an individual disciplined
when he has been rendered as artificially silent as a mute
and as immovable as a paralytic.
He is an individual annihilated, not disciplined."
Maria Montessori
(1870-1952) Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name, the Montessori method
The Montessori Method, 1912

Our politicians are rendering us silent and immovable. Vote for changes, like a Libertarian President.

    One will never reform socialism, it must be abolished !! So which politician is a true Patriot of Liberty ? They all, bow down to church and state socialism ! From Lincoln to the present time. A Robert E. Lee of the Patton type will do very well. Only this time with swing sets on ever lawn. Starting at the WH. Live Free or Die well.

    We sent our children to Montessori School for their first few years. What an excellent method of facilitating children's learning rather than making them obey like army recruits.
