Speaking of libertarians and their children do any of you have children have any of those (few) libertarian oriented kids books? Are any of you concerned about socialist messages in childrens books?

My kids are just coming reading age and I've been assembling a collection of books that have libertarian themes.  There are a lot of books that have themes that are precursors to socialism.  With those I either discard them or emphasize that forcing someone to do good things is wrong.

Yertle the Turtle is my favorite of this genre.

From the Wikipedia entry:
Quote
It is said by Dr. Seuss himself that "Yertle the Turtle" was modeled after the rise of Hitler. The book explained his feelings about fascism, and Nazis in particular.

If it's been a long time since you read any Dr. Seuss, check out Yertle.

I noticed that myself while I perusing childrens books in Barnes and Noble awhile ago. One book going on about how wonderful FDR was...he was just trying to help out all the folk effected by the Great Depressoin afterall...

Someone told me about the book, "The Dog that Owned Himself," however I have yet to find a copy of this book anywhere.  And if anyone knows of this book and where to get it I sure would like a copy.

odd premise.  avoiding the gov't is only enhanced by having children.  I think this premise can only be advanced by a non-libertarian who is thinking that the state is here to raise our kids and "protect the children".  actually this is a little off puttiing.  And I think the poll is skewed by younger listeners.

People who have kids don't usually have as much time to post on forums.

I've got two kids, boy (4) and girl (7). Would like to have more but wife doesn't think so. Kids are awesome fun and they pretty much come out libertarian anyhow. My 7 year-old does have some facist leanings, sometimes tho. We were talking at the dinner table about the salt and pepper shakers fighting over who owned the tabletop when Pepsi can decided to interveen (we discussed possible methods of stopping the salt/pepper war). She decided that Pepsi can, even tho it is bigger, shouldn't choose sides and invade. She said they should all talk about the problem and than work out a deal.

Or invent a machine in outer space that would go into their brains and "make" them forget about fighting  :shock:.

Kids are fun!

I have a child and I know other Libertarians with kids as well. So I don't think it matters.

I have a 4 year old daughter, and I shudder at the way "we" are selling her future into slavery. So... yeah, I'm a libertarian (not the disgruntled Republican branch, either).

I have 7 kids, ages 1-7.  All of them are motorcycle riding, scotch drinking, tobacco smoking, gun toting, Jew gold carrying, rebellious, anarcho-capitalists who will go to public school and collect food stamps and social security.

I've got two grown daughters, and I've been a libertarian since 1968.
