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|
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:
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.
