TOP LIBERTARIAN NEWS...

We're spreading to this motto:

Libertarian Individuals Mean Community Progress.

 

Since the modern LIO Libertarian and allied Green movement began in 1969 with 5 pledgers and several hundred fans, we're now 1+ per 1000 homes in every country. Why stop now?

The Libertarian International Organization  (LIO) helps you build a better world with aware, voluntary, non-punitive tools!  LIO is a set of advisory -encouragement networks  along SMILE lines. Mission: Help you promote peaceful voluntary choices and associations, notably in public administration, as engines of betterment. It is free, non-partisan, all-volunteer, neither takes nor donates funds; mothering Liberal and progressive change. Go to 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 on|

Key news: The formal LIO Libertarian/fan community--LIO--is (2015) at 8 million homes proportionately distributed across classes and ethnicities in every country, with an additional 1.3 million in an added US LIO-fan D-base, resulting in 11% of US Homes--22% of all parties--self-identifying as informal libertarian-interested. Interests are peaceful dialogue on aware use of voluntary tools bettering rights, tolerance, social/scientific progress in all areas. LIO is non-partisan, but most follow the intuitive Gilson Libertarian voting strategy disseminated in 1969: Vote for very honest and preferably libertarian-interested and/or minority persons; otherwise vote to oblige centrist dialogue via progressive executive-upper house and conservative lower house in federal or national/local, and the reverse in state/ regional elections in both private and public-common bodies. LIO fans are active in non-partisan preferably appointive local office, to often lead the bodies they serve and increasingly professional or union groups. In general, progressives as social accelerator tend to be 50 years behind in consciously applying LIO Libertarian (or SMILE) tools, conservatives 100 years as social brake. All are welcome to try or share free SMILE tools to better home, work-leisure, and civic life in the world's largest intentional community bringing goodwill, dialogue, peace in all institutions--thus suppressing anti-rights extremism.

Overview. The LIO was re-founded in 1904: Katherine Gardner-Gilson, G. Thonar, Michael Lemos. It initially focused on training on co-operatives, tolerance, and work on what is now the UN Declaration--a world rights charter. We include the predecessor Lemos-Gil Liberal Salons re-organized 1592 to promote voluntary associations as engines of progress. We're an alliance of homes for goodwill, dialogue, volunteering.  Just share your good work: Use any of our 3 dialogue platforms of progress, rights, voluntary governance since 1969:

  1. Civil Libertarianism: Voluntary eco-tools, all fields (SMILE).
  2. Citizen Libertarianism: Local UN Rights democracy, all nations with Florida as model
  3. Civic (with LIO curator): Libertarian model eco-homes/-community legal.

Formal Participation:.. in the LIO Libertarian world community is also via these 3 levels: You're either an small-l libertarian applier, large-L pledged advocate, or LIO auditor (~170+ IQ homes)/Senior Libertarian focused on 1, 2, or 3 respectively.  (Outreach registration is presently closed. Informal pro-libertarian voters/libertarian-receptives may get on our d-base via e-mail to our Facebook i.e. LIO Friends, right). More: Am I a L/libertarian?

History: Please note the term Libertarian is derived from the Iberian for freeholder who championed justice and city rights--not liberty per se, but justice and free speech. Their voluntary Libertarian communities of old, many around the garden republic of Monfort Lemos--where all voted even in the Dark Ages--inspire many. Join LIO fans exchanging data for eco-homes/co-housing of positive parenting, prepping, and personal development; involvement in community volunteering and non-partisan local public office; and share links/tools. 

Now what? Enjoy our links, and LIO Fellows thinkpieces below: Share to promote brainstorming and dialogue.

"The www.LibertarianInternational.org is informal, effective because it's us, we share many practical and inspiring tools, and LIO Libertarianism is very friendly to women and minorities such as Native and First peoples..."

--Meaghan Champion, Canadian Native American activist, homeschooler, and journalist.

Welcome from Kennon Gilson, student of art and education-philosophy, and great-grandson and collateral cousin-removed of the LIO re-founders.

"Rights, Order and Progress. LIO re-founders Katherine Gilson was also a co-organizer of the great D.C. woman's march in 1913 where she was beaten by police while pregnant with my grandfather--then toured the country galvanizing the equal rights movement...while Michael Lemos peacefully ended slavery and co-founded the republic of Brazil designing its flag, encouraging many liberal-libertarian communes at the time educating the freed slaves. They formalized LIO which had been for over a century the research edge of the venerable Liberal League it now incorporates, hosted by my ancestors from time immemorial. Having been a teen Libertarian in several public offices in the USA, and learned of our history and community including from luminaries as noted philosophers John Hospers and Barbara Branden, David Nolan and Dr. R. Swanson who helped found www.lp.org at a suggestion from my grandfather, and Toni Nathan first woman to get an electoral vote in the US, I'm honored you're looking into the amazing work and ideas of our fans. As a co-editor, I'll do my best to help you share the good work, and try out a benevolent and tolerant Libertarian atmosphere starting at home. Remember, you already enjoy the fruits of many Liberal-Libertarian innovations and campaigns...what we're doing is bringing aware, principled use: With more voluntary choices, things improve."

Quickie: Progressives become pro-libertarian, old-style left trys to claim credit, smears Libertarians

Posted on March 4, 2015 at 2:55 PM
  • Be advised: in the US progressives are in a growing civil war between increasing pro-libertarian/libertarian-receptives, and the totalitarian old 'new left' trying to hold on.  (Progressives are always 50 years behind Libertarians, conservatives 100 years as respective social accelerators and brakes of mass understanding.)

Quickie: Extreme Left Campaign VS. Libertarian Net Neutrality? Attack What You Claim to Save

Posted on March 4, 2015 at 2:20 PM
  • L/libertarian LIO Fellows and fans conceptualized, removed blocking legislation, and made material inventions that created the Internet. Coercive Government programs didn't create the web* --and Net/Cable neutrality is a Libertarian promise and concept against which the extreme Left fought tooth and nail in efforts to suppress the Libertarian-developed web--and is now fighting again. The Web is on the whole a public-offer entity that should thus be...

Welcome!

Note: While we highlight fan activity from web and other sites, our d-base is always confidential and never shared.

The average LIO fan is an Asian woman like educator Fely Gahan interested in more voluntary tools, transparent democracy, and tolerance. They're (2015) 8 million+ caring homes like yours distributed proportionately in every country, class, and major ethnicity. If you're wondering why China is moving towards more prosperity and India is becoming a lower-tax powerhouse where Ayn Rand is a best-seller--now you know. Find out more.

Ecuador Cmdr. Astronaut Ron Nader, LIO Welcome Host pioneered a civil space agency, now leads projects for free technical education for underserved youth, and says: Share empowering LIO non-partisan fellowship tools of progress and dialogue--and your wins on our sites. LIO Libertarians starting in 1977 drove what has resulted in the international yearly conferences on interstellar colonization now sponsored by NASA.

WILL YOU HELP MILTON FRIEDMAN'S EFFORT TO END POVERTY?

Most of the world's poor are in the recovering coerced egalitarian countries--whether Communist or fascist-socialist--as often LIO fan led reform is increasing the standard once thought sufficient for social justice. Libertarian Nobelist and LIO Fellow Professor Milton Friedman wanted you to join him in ending pseudo-solutions by sharing concrete SMILE tools to end poverty to your country: Replacing destructive coercive taxes with endowments and voluntary taxes, simplified automatic incomes with amenities such as basic homes and healthcare, legalizing community foodshares, worker/user co-operatives, unions, and corporations that can have a non-profit component, and more. In some countries as China, wages have (2015) risen 20X from the egalitarian Communist norm thanks to SMILE tools, and now 1 in 10 US families--from 1 in 300 when reforms began in 1972-- are millionaires whose dollar buys things like web computers that once cost millions but were illegal--and with 90+% cheaper and better products thanks to continuing deregulation of choice in everything from air travel to phone systems to food.
