I believe in freedom of and freedom from coercion of any and all kind. I believe in voluntary relationships. Not all people do, not even those who represent commonly believed freedoms such as second amendment groups, home midwifery groups, and home education groups. Many of those groups are really only creating “entangled alliances” (thanks, Bonnie!).
If you believe in freedom of and from education in North Carolina or elsewhere, I encourage you to follow the North Carolinians for Home Education facebook page. Specifically the post about the NC House passing House Bill 230 – Amend the definition of a home school on Wednesday, March 20.
Take your time. Read the comments. All 70+. You’ll see a healthy dose of many perspectives on HB230 and home education and liberty philosophy in general. Read the comments again. And know that NCHE has chosen to censor the discussion by removing comments the organization did not like, none of which thus far have contained vulgar language nor personal attacks.
And read them again. This is important stuff. All rights, all natural rights originate in the individual. Not the state.
