The purpose of the Libertarian Nation Foundation is to advance the day when coercive
institutions of government can be replaced by voluntary institutions of civil mutual consent, by
developing clear and believable descriptions of those voluntary institutions, and by building a
community of people who share confidence in these descriptions.

How LNF Differs From Other Libertarian Organizations
LNF does not try to influence government policy in existing nations. And LNF does
not try to convince statists (people who believe in the state as an institution) of the benefits
of privatization. Instead LNF works among people who are already libertarian, trying to
build the strength of the libertarian movement from within by improving the clarity of its
Introduction to the Libertarian Nation Foundation
LNF was founded (along with its sister organization FNF-CI) in 2001 as a daughter organization of the original
Free Nation Foundation (which was founded in 1993 to
follow the plan described in Toward a Free Nation). LNF publishes
Formulations and holds occasional Forums.
In accordance with the agreement between the principals of LNF and FNF-CI, FNF-CI has now been renamed to Free Nation Foundation and the domain FreeNation.org is now used by this new Free Nation Foundation. The new FNF continues to use the legal paperwork of the original FNF.
LNF previously used the website LibertarianNation.org, but that URL currently has no connection to either LNF or FNF-CI. Internal links are in the process of being updated.
