The philosophy of the children's liberation movement is an ethical system founded on the belief that the overlapping ideals of liberty, justice, tolerance, social equality and personal responsibility, should be applied to all people without regard to age.

Core values[edit]

  • Liberty: Freedom from compulsion or coercion by aggressors.
  • Justice: Fair treatment that respects people's rights.
  • Tolerance: Refraining from forcibly interfering with others' thoughts and behaviors that do not infringe anyone's rights.
  • Social equality: The application of the same protections of life, liberty and property to all people.
  • Personal responsibility: The requirement that each person bear the consequences of his actions, unless others voluntarily devote their resources to rescuing him from those results.
