Liberalism: True Political Ideology or Mental Disorder?

2013-10-22 15:32

Before we can even start to answer that question we need to understand what Liberalism is. We also need to understand that there is something called “Classic” Liberalism and “Modern” or “Progressive” Liberalism.

In the run-up to the World War 1 liberalism was what is now termed “Classic Liberalism” which did not mock religion, family values, morals, ethics and the belief in hard work but rather abhorred the idea of large intrusive and coercive Governments with everybody allowed a place in the sun. The credo of classic liberalism is freedom – as long as you were tolerant of other’s freedoms.
