Education… Learning… Enlightenment… “schooling….”
All of these products, services and ideas can still be obtained freely and voluntarily, by anyone, at any age because we still have a relatively free market in America. This is what is called the “Free Market of Ideas” working within the Economic construct of the Free Market.
Government assistance, accountability, coercion or monopoly (the opposite of a free market) are not necessary for a free people to better themselves by learning about their world or about ideas or new skills that interest them. Government schools weren’t necessary before they were widely adopted in the 1800’s and they’re especially not necessary when most anyone can have free or relatively free access to any bit of information in the world that interests them.
Here is a FREE lesson, from a FREE course offered online by Hillsdale, on economics. Imagine a world (your world) where attending a government institution called a ‘school’ was optional. (It is optional… you just have to be willing to take responsibility for educating yourself and your children back from the government.)
Skip school and learn in freedom.
