  1. Each individual is the sole owner of his own body;
  2. Each individual is the sole owner of the fruits of his own labor;
  3. Exclusive possession of his own body and the fruits of his own work is defined as private property;
  4. The private property of an individual can not be violated, in whole or in part, by any other individual or groups of individuals however organized;
  5. An individual is free when his private property, as defined in section 3 is not, in whole or in part, violated against his will, otherwise he is, in whole or in part, a servant;
  6. Every free individual has the right to choose what to do with his own bodies and the fruits of his own labour;
  7. In exercising this right the free individual must not violate the private property of others, as defined in point 3;
  8. No rights enshrined coercively through the breach, in whole or in part, of the private property, may in any way and under no circumstances be regarded as a right;
  9. From the peremptory affirmation of the inviolability of the private property derive a number of practical consequences in the exercise of individual freedom, such as: the freedom to help on a purely voluntary base one's neighbor, religious freedom, sexual freedom, the freedom to choose and pay only for goods and services that best meet oneself needs, the freedom to make money transactions in the chosen currency in a free currency market finally excluded from the monopoly of central banks, the freedom to exchange with anyone you want without customs duties the fruits of one’s own labor, the freedom to choose how to provide for oneself physical safety and to whom to entrust the administration of civil and criminal justice;

The aims of Interlibertarians organisation are[7]:

  • defence of private property from attacks by ruling statism run by both right- and left-wing constructivists;
  • defence of freedom of entrepreneurship against over-regulations which imprison human talents;
  • defence of tax competition in favour of a future society, once and for all free from taxes, founded on the grounds of subsidiarity, the voluntary sector, free association, responsibility and civic concord;
  • defence of the value of saving against the central banking monopoly;
  • defence of freedom of education as to make our children free from institutional serfdom inculcated by state school;

Each year in Lugano (Switzerland), IL organisation create the Interlibertarians Conference, a free event that allows to participants to[7]:

  • Explain the initiatives undertaken in their respective own countries with the promotion of libertarian philosophy and free market proposals for the achievement of the above mentioned fundamental goals;
  • Meet and exchange experiences with others libertarians, create a platform for exchange and communication between libertarians and free market organisations in the world;
  • Discuss and agree the implementation of practical common actions, on worldwide level for the creation of a network for the communication of libertarians ideas and non-violent actions;

The first IL Conference event was organised on April 2-3, 2011 at Palazzo dei Congressi[8][9][10], with many messages of greeting[11][12], hosts international relators[13][14] and interesting arguments to debated[15][16] (for example the purpose of golden swiss franch[17], free market solution about the choice of school education[18], the abolition of withholding tax[19] and the free market of sound money[20]).

The success of this event[21][22] allowed the subsequent creation of the first beta version of the website of IL[23] and the implementation of the goals decided during the conference for the grow of the organisation.[24][25][26]

[27][28]. [29]. The main theme of the conference is: 'Libertarians in the political arena: How can libertarians gather consensus to influence or change the existing state institutions?'
