About

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:

  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.

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..."

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

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.
