Liberalism


    Liberalism


  • An ideology based on beliefs of economic and personal freedom, and the fact that social inequalities are a part of nature. (Also [libertarianism] to the American readers.)

    A definition later to be distorted by Americans, who mainly associate liberalism with being left-wing on the political scale, disregarding the original and correct sense of the word.

    Liberalism


  • Liberalism is a political philosophy-ideology favouring [centrist]-laissez-faire economics, willing to comprimise a bit. Additionally, liberalism advocates for the invidualist [freedom]s, including democratic rights. They support a [democracy]. Liberals are also advocate of [separation of church and state], open-disscusion, [Social Progressivism] and centrism.


  • Liberalism


  • Something that people like [Ann Coulter] and other [neoconservatives] misrepresent. The [Green] and [Libertarian] parties both embrace the philosophy of liberalism.

    Liberalism has nothing to do with economy. It is completely independent of capitalism or any other economic system. Liberalism is a strictly social philosophy.

    It is the opposite of authoritarianism.
    It is also NOT the opposite of conservatism.

    Under liberalism, the government has little role in regulating social affairs. Under liberalism, the government exists to protect liberties, not take them away.

  • Part I: Definition

    Liberalism literally means to be liberal and liberal means to be loose. THIS MEANS that liberals do not want laws. That is vaguely true, and maybe if you can find a conservative anarchist Ill be wrong. Liberalism is the establishment of liberals in politics. They usually vote for and represent democrats, John McCain = exception. Liberals advocate personal freedoms and peace, as well as recognize problems worldwide, and not the ones that only threaten us (Iraq, Afghanistan, but the first one was a hoax to help Halliburton the oil company).

    Part II: Bashing
    To the peopl who said Liberals are semi-retarded: type into Google 2004 election by IQ. Youll be surprised. It may not be believable at first, but the inability to find a site supporting you will lead to the stomach-turning conclusion.
    To the person who said we kill babies for no reason: Umm, maybe you forgot that children, while a bundle of joy, cost about 225000 dollars for education, food, the works. this includes tax write-offs. And to the people who said we whine, next time listen to what we whine about. If it isnt about the 13-digit deficit our economy is suffering, which wasnt as bad as the clinton era, its about the Free trade agreement Bush signed which entitles landowners to rule their workers like serfs in the fifteenth century.

  • While modern terminology refers to liberalism as the left political spectrum, there are also many other types of liberalism. Examples being:
    Progressive liberalism: Normally associated with the Democratic Party. Is known for welfare programs, increased social freedom, and advocating for civil rights. Is also infamous for increasing taxes to pay for these welfare programs, and an insistence on overemphasized political correctness.

Believes in minimizing taxes for corporations and businesses, increased economic freedom, and privatizing social benefit programs currently run by the government.

  • by far the best form of government that any country could have.
    liberalism is about the individual and his or her rights and freedoms, not about multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporations bent on destroying life as we know it, and the useless brain-dead [neo-con]s who mindlessly follow them like the lemmings that hey are.
