Let's face it, we're all here together at PorcFest because somewhere deep down in each one of us there is an ultimately optimistic compulsion to embrace the full weight of the challenges that lie in the great contest of pursuing "liberty in our lifetime." It's hardly a smooth process. To many folks, the idea of a society imbued with Complete Liberty is downright morbid, if not impossible. We have to actively demonstrate that living by the first principles is not an ugly, untenable proposition, rather it actually works by putting the advantages of choice and nonviolence on full display. We can make the obviously preferable, mutually beneficial results of true freedom easily self-apparent, but not until vast improvements to how we communicate are made. This presentation will explore how we can make communicating the ideas of individual liberty effortless and contagiously appealing by modeling win-win strategies for our social interactions, transactions, and conflicts using the methodology of Nonviolent Communication. Following the presentation will be an interactive workshop providing audience members with a chance to experience applying NVC to the familiar challenges inherent to practicing the NAP and Self-Interest consistently in a still-Statist society.
