The government is seen as a guarantee to order and stability in society but “power tends to corrupt” (Lord Acton) and therefore the liberals believe in limited government and in a written constitution defining the relationship between the state and the individual. (Heywood-Politics MacMillan 17). What it comes down to is what we were told by them, not what we assume about them. Personality, then, is the pattern of learned responses, not all of them adaptive in long-range terms but all of them, at least once, reinforced.

There are exceptions on both sides: Liberals believe that individuals are collectively responsible for the welfare of the entire community. If militancy is low, very few (if any) conservatives will support reform. Shallow environmentalism: puts human beings at the center of concern and view environmental problems in instrumental terms. They are more than mere prejudices and presuppositions. An article about the Olin Foundation by historian Jennifer de Forest, for instance, notes that the organization’s commitment to higher education reform grew out of the experiences of the 1960s.

But if you express "genuine concern" (otherwise known as phony compassion) for the welfare of genetically unrelated others by giving over your hard earned money to the government so they can give it to a segment of the population to live comfortably without working you are a good liberal-- with a high IQ I might add, perhaps even a genius!

The government’s ham-fisted intention of taking advantage of the situation to implement its desired liberal agenda (“you never want a serious crisis to go to waste”) despite that it is inevitably prolonging this Obama Malaise, just illustrates that liberals learned nothing from their forbearers who implemented the same ‘solutions’ during the Great Depression with disastrous results (more in #11 Austerity Versus Stimulus – What Is the History?). I've now worked their ideas and mine into this article, and hope to take it to the next step, with contributions from the larger pool of readers available here - or, at least, with a larger group of people thinking about positive, unifying ideas to counter the relentless nihilism that characterizes today's Progressives.

Fromm’s second theme has to do with the relationship of man to society and to the government thereof. No parts of the body have been immune from it. It has the function of producing an obvious reality that social subjects can assume and accept, precisely as if it had not been socially produced [through systems of representation] and did not need to be "known" at all. " Ideology is a term that refers to the labyrinthine system of values and beliefs each of us ascribes to about the world, the way it operates, and our place within it.

Guide students in recording the principles (30-1) and values (30-2) of classical liberalism at the beginning of the time line. The conservative, aristocratic monarchies, with their armies and economies (Great Britain exception), appeared firmly in control once again; great challenge for political leaders in 1814 was to construct a peace settlement that would last and not start war The allied powers were concerned with the defeated enemy, France and agreed to the restoration of the Bourbon dynasty (Peace of Paris with Louis XVIII; May 30, 1814) The allies were lenient toward France, gave them boundaries it possessed in 1692 and France lost the territories conquered in Italy, Germany, and Low Countries France did not have to pay any war damages; when the four allies met at the Congress of Vienna, they agreed to raise a number of formidable barriers against French aggression and the Low Countries were united and Prussia received more territory on France’s eastern border to stand as a “sentinel” against France In their moderation toward France, the allies (the Great Powers) were motivated by self-interest and traditional ideas about the balance of power To Klemens von Metternich and Castlereagh (foreign ministers of Austria and Britain) as well as their French counterpart Charles Talleyrand, the balance of power meant an internal equilibrium of political and military forces that would preserve the freedom and Austria, Britain, Prussia, Russia, and France On January 3, 1815, Great Britain, Austria, and France signed a secret alliance directed against Russia and Prussia; the outcome was compromise rather than war because threat of war caused rulers of Russia and Prussia to moderate demands They accepted Metternich’s proposal and Russia established a small Polish kingdom and Prussia received two-fifths of Saxony; France had regained its Great Power status and ended its diplomatic isolation by siding with Metternich When the peace settlement had been almost complete, Napoleon reappeared and after Napoleon was defeated, the resulting peace—the second Peace of Paris—was still relatively moderate toward France and Louis XVIII was restored to his throne In 1815 under Metternich’s leadership, Austria, Prussia, and Russia embarked on a crusade against the ideas of politics of the dual revolution (lasted until 1848) Calling a conference at Troppau in Austria under the provisions of the quadruple Alliance, Metternich and Alexander I proclaimed the principle of active intervention to maintain all autocratic regimes whenever they were threatened Encouraged by the British position, the United States proclaimed its celebrated Monroe Doctrine in 1823, which declared that European powers were to keep their hands off the New World and in no way attempt to re-establish their political system Metternich continued to battle liberal political change but sometime she could do little as in the new Latin American republics nor the dynastic changes of 1830 and 1831 in France and Belgium; Metternich’s system proved effective until 1848 Metternich’s policies dominated entire German Confederation, which was composed of thirty-eight independent German states, including Prussia and Austria and theses states met in complicated assemblies dominated by Austria, with Prussia a willing junior partner in the planning and execution of repressive measures Born into the middle ranks of the landed nobility of the Rhineland, Prince Klemens von Metternich was an internationally oriented aristocrat and marriage to Eleonora von Kaunitz opened the door to the highest court circles and a diplomatic career Austrian ambassador to Napoleon’s court in 1806 and Austrian foreign minister from 1809 to 1848, Metternich remained loyal to his class Metternich defended the rights of his class with a clear conscience; the nobility was one of Europe’s most ancient institutions and regarded tradition as the basic source of human institutions (monarchy, bureaucracy, aristocracy, commoners) Metternich’s commitment to conservatism was coupled with a passionate hatred of liberalism; liberal demands for representative government and civil liberties had captured some of the middle-class lawyers, business people, and intellectuals Like many other conservatives, Metternich blamed liberal revolutionaries for stirring up the lower classes, which he believed to be indifferent to liberal ideas The threat of liberalism appeared doubly dangerous to Metternich because it went with national aspirations and liberals, believed that each national group, had a right to establish its own independent government and seek to fulfill its own destiny Germans had supported and profited by the long-term territorial expansion of Austria; Germans accounted for a quarter of the population The various Slavic peoples, together with the Italians and the Rumanians, represented a widely scattered and completely divided majority in an empire dominated by Germans and Hungarians Different parts of provinces of the empire differed in languages, customs, and institutions but were held together by their ties to the Habsburg emperor Revived conservatism, with stress on tradition, a hereditary monarchy, a strong and privileged landowning aristocracy, and an official church, was rejected by radicals Liberalism demanded representative government as opposed to autocratic monarchy, equality before the law as opposed to legally separate classes The idea of liberty continued to mean specific individual freedoms: freedom of press, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of arbitrary arrest This form of liberalism is often called “classical” liberalism in the United States in order to distinguish it sharply from modern American liberalism, which favors more government programs to meet social needs and to regulate the economy Opponents of classical liberalism criticized its economic principles, which called for unrestricted private enterprise and no government interference (laissez faire) Smith argued that freely competitive private enterprise would result in greater income for everyone, no just the rich (general economic development) British economy was liberalized as old restrictions on trade and industry were relaxed or eliminated; this liberalization promoted continued economic growth in the I.
