Matt Kleopfer joins us today to discuss the impact of technology on children and families. Matt grew up as a stereotypical midwest farm kid, but like most decided to ditch the farm for a college indoctrination and pursued music and education.
After 2 college degrees, Matt grabbed his helmet and shovel and headed for the trenches of public government education in a small rural Kansas town. After spending 5 years in the government school scene, Matt noticed some very alarming patterns. By this time he and his wife had four kids and were looking for an alternative. It all changed one day when Matt was on his 52 mile drive home and he listened to a podcast by “some asshole named Jack”. In the episode, Jack spoke about “Creating your won version of liberty”.
That night Matt turned and tossed as the thoughts wouldn’t leave his head. He spoke with his wife the next morning and drove to school only to find the kids lined up outside the doors like robots waiting for their daily dose of mediocrity. At his first break, Matt walked down and turned in his resignation. Matt now home schools his four kids and runs a small 40 acre farmstead where they grow nearly all of their own food.
In the last several years Matt has been a faithful listener and integrated many TSP ideas into their daily life. Jack, I thank you and the tsp community for all you have done for those pursuing a life of liberty. Today we have an amazing discussion on technology, how it is both beneficial and highly dangerous to our children, and honestly ourselves along with how to set proper boundaries.
