List of Organisations and Projects
This is a very loose assortment of liberty focused organisations and projects whose goals are based on spreading the ideas of liberty.
The Libertarian Party (LP) is a political party in the United States that promotes civil liberties, non-interventionism, laissez-faire capitalism, and limiting the size and scope of government. The party was conceived in August 1971 at meetings in the home of David F. Nolan in Westminster, Colorado, and was officially formed on December 11, 1971 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Many people believe that liberty is the core political value of modern civilization itself, the one that gives substance and form to all the other values of social life. They're called libertarians.

Australian taxpayers Alliance

Being Libertarian is a point of convergence for minarchists, classical liberals, anarchists, independents, objectivists, capitalist, and right/left-leaning libertarians.
There is a lot of argument here in regard to this precept or that precept and whether or not any individuals have "The Right" to say or do something that the "rest of us" find unusual. But that is precisely what the United States was founded upon; the RiUght to say "No". And the Shire Society is continuing that noble concept.
Free State Project
The Free State Project (FSP) is a political migration founded in 2001 to recruit at least 20,000 libertarians to move to a single low-population state (New Hampshire, selected in 2003) in order to make the state a stronghold for libertarian ideas. The project seeks to overcome the historical ineffectiveness of limited government activism which they believe was caused by the small number and diffuse population of libertarian activists across the 50 United States and around the world.
