TOP LIBERTARIAN NEWS...
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 Page 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |
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 Lemos-Gil Liberal Salons re-organized 1592 to promote voluntary associations as engine of progress. Just share your good work: Use any of our 3 dialogue platforms, since 1969:
Participation is also at 3 levels: Our low-key small-l libertarians are appliers/users or LIO fans who tend to use 1 to better home to civic life. Those who focus on 2 are pledged Large-L Libertarian advocates/students of respect for the 30 UN/their nation's constitutional rights: Via choices of principled-voluntary, punishment-free, proactive, and peaceful tools--thus not advocating initiated force by any person, group, or official body (This Gilson pledge was first shared in 1969, launching the modern movement). Libertarian LIO auditors are very high-IQ homes working directly with the curator using 1-3 to better progress. Please note the term Libertarian is derived from the Iberian for freeholder who championed justice and city rights, and the voluntary Libertarian communities of old many around the garden republic of Monfort Lemos--where all voted even in the Dark Ages--inspire many. We also welcome the growing number of unofficial libertarian-receptive and Liberal fans. 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..."
