"The Libertarian International Organization is what serious Liberals and Libertarians do...we need human rights parties and groups like the US Libertarians in every country...they're a breath of fresh air where the culture is banning Oxygen..."
--US Senator William Proxmire, LIO Fellow, choice and world peace advocate of e.g. removing NASA and international blocks to private international space colonization
LIO is a set of advisory and encouragement networks along SMILE lines. Its mission is to promote peaceful voluntary associations, notably in public administration, as engines of betterment. It is all- volunteer, non-partisan, and neither accepts nor donates money. The focus is highlighting valuable tools and processes, not issues per se.
The SMILE program is the LIO world platform and refers to encouraging dialogue on rights-based, voluntary and pro-active options in:
SMILE encourages self-organization using what is here as inspiration. Examples of SMILE projects of or involving LIO Friends and Fellows include efforts to build a Starship with NASA and Virgin Atlantic; spread of early education in logic and social co-operation; work for reducing border tensions in Central Asia, a long-term project to safeguard humanity from rare but inevitable threats; a long term project for quantum advance in Life Extension; and projects to implement local Lib-interested networks.The terminology was developed by LIO Fellow Dr. T. Leary.
Modern Libertarians are people dedicated to aware use of rights and voluntary non-punitive solutions in personal, work-leisure civil, and civic life--as modernized freehold citizenship in a Liberal secular democratic milieu. We encourage you to get familiar with directional themes at www.LibertarianBookClub.org with systematic readings selected by modern movement founders...get empowered with the site resources, links and thinkpieces that show how LIO Fellows help you in SMILE areas...and get started with our representative set of Lib-interest videos (We suggest starting with Lib 101).
Thank you for your interest....and we look forward to highlighting your good work.

Libertarian Citizen Platform: Senior Pledged Libertarians take personal responsibility for the maintenance and peaceful expansion of a democratic, confederal, localist pro-reason civilization of all cultures based on the 30 Rights of the UN Declaration: the Empire of Liberty.
Libertarian Civic Platform(project of curator): The mission of the civic movement is to legalize option of libertarian societies from eco-homes on based on the LIO model and adaptations. Public and common administration shall focus on voluntary alternatives to coercive systems; Law is in the model developed from the Gilson Reform re-stating Natural Right in the fundamental axiom of the right to ownership of one's life and attendant goods and aliquot clan habitat, expressed and socially expanded via the Gilson Libertarian Pledge of advocacy of respect for the: 30-UN rights choice of principled-voluntary, punishment-free, proactive, peaceful solutions (Dallas Accord, 9 Libertarian words); that is without assumed initiation of force by any person, group or official ( Libertarian member/student certification sometimes called non-aggression principle) including via non-condign retaliation or punishment, unfair contract, fraud, or threat as locally understood or mutually agreed. The goodwill of general humanity is assumed and appealed to (Heinlein proviso). Libertarian eco-communities are understood as protective of philosophy and science, and as building blocks of user-designed economies.
NOTE: In LIO usage, the term Libertarian is derived from the Iberian for freehold citizen or Libertario. Both the LIO model eco-community based on the Lemos communes and traditional Libertarian communes going back to Pythagoras, Numa Pompilius (see Plutarch) and Hippodamos (see Aristotle's Politics) are used as inspiration. The Libertarian citizen was pledged to promote the rights of the people or justice, and liberty of those rights, not liberty as such.
