Principles 16-23 for educating free people

16. An education for freedom is practical: it promotes the skills required to stay free: money, time, knowledge, space, language, and people management.

17. An education for freedom is sensible: it gradually releases the prisoner from his bonds as the prisoner/student is able to manage the release

18. An education for freedom teaches the soul to use persuasion over force, both with others and within oneself

19. A free teacher seeks knowledge over opinion and argues in such a way as to set the pattern for the student to do so as well

20. An education for freedom places nature over application (which exalts application to its place instead of reducing it to the king of shreds and patches)

21 A student who will be free learns to place the heavenly and permanent over the worldly and changing

22. An education for freedom places contemplation over production

23. A student who will be free learns to imitate the excellent and praiseworthy
