What is a liberal

Reader comment on item: Welcome, Conservatives, to Pariah Status

Submitted by Georges Dellopoulos (Spain), Jan 15, 2021 at 12:26

I always thought of me of being "liberal" (with the US meaning of the word, not the European one).

However, I must say that your definition of "conservative" fits quite well to my way of life and my principles.

May I ask you what is your definition of "liberal"?

Liberals "believe in each person's unlimited capacity to figure things out on his own." See http://www.danielpipes.org/18452/conservativism-hidden-history
