"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: go here for more perspectives at the co-editor blog.
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 http://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.
