A divine intent, as well as personal conscience, rules society; 2. This comes a little bit closer to atheism than anything thus far. While there may be times that you wish to speak your mind, be conscious of the general beliefs of your church. It encourages a ruthless system of self-interest and intolerant treatment of others. Dissatisfaction with the functioning of the system is ultimately the dissatisfaction of persons in status-roles, but the extent of strain will depend upon how many status-roles are affected and how deep the dissatisfaction is.

This has not only been accepted, but has become so incorporated into the culture of western liberal-democratic societies, that few people ever think about it. You cannot help but do that when the content of your ideas drive you to inevitable and necessary conclusions. There are already nonlibertarians that advocate either laissez-faire capitalism or expansive civil liberties.

My liberal counterparts should spend their time looking at pleasant images, being creative, advancing positive outcomes, have little reaction to threatening noises or images, be very tolerant of uncertainty, yet sleep restlessly suffering from bizarre dreams while showing more emotional stress and have lower life satisfaction. I would say that responsible handgun ownership deters crimes like home invasion. However, in communist societies they are likely to favour agrarian policies and oppose industrialisation, showing again their belief in maintaining established institutions, that tradition equals security.

And almost everyone who was enamored of Lenin was also an admirer of Mussolini’s Fascist government in Italy. And these were, as I recall from the 1960s, the same people who decried the loss of civility. At the risk of tautology, it’s when it becomes an agenda item for the party in question.

Also, I like the way liberal Christians are so thoughtful. How is a resort or a secure community built? It really boils down to the inalienable rights of the individual, as opposed to the merciless will of the collective or the tyrant.

To create the new political continuum, each voter's scores (plus or minus) for the dichotomized measures of support for interventions to augment equity, equality, and health were summed.

In terms of racial issues, "White Republicans as well as Democrats solicited black votes but reluctantly rewarded blacks with nominations for office only when necessary, even then reserving the more choice positions for whites. Liberalism defined itself as the opposite of conservatism, on the basis of what might be called a "consciousness of being modern" (Minogue, 1963, 3). It also reinforced the conservative attachment to the Catholic past, particularly the previously despised Middle Ages.

A “liberal” would also want to work toward the freedom and liberty of mankind, but rather instead by eliminating any and all institutions that oppress or give power to those that oppress.
