Freedom

Unschooling is about empowering children with the ‘Freedom to Learn’ so they will grow up to appreciate freedom & fight for it instead of obediently spending their childhoods being told to sit down, shut up, and do what you’re told. Compulsory schooling is child slavery so our society will never be free as long we continue to enslave children.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~ Ronald Reagan

"The best freedom is being yourself." ~ Jim Morrison

"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first." ~ Jim Morrison
