A liberal is a person who is open to new opinions and is willing to discard traditional values. In politics, liberals refer to people who believe in government action so to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. Read on about them from www.studentnewsdaily.com/conservative-vs-liberal-beliefs/.
people dont liberals because they are unreasonable and desire to push their beliefs and 'open' mindedness on everyone. In an Ideal world, liberals have the right idea... but in the real world, their ideas just dont work all too well. The benefits they provide to people are taken from others and abused by those who recieve them.
People who just basically a political party about liberal policies and of liberal views, but I believe it's mainly the conservative ones who hate them then again it's to do with POLITICS so I mean who wouldn't hate them....
Liberalism is currently dominated by economic and social liberalism, as opposed to classical liberalism. The correct definition should involve the following precepts: 1. POLITICAL: The belief in the power of the federal government as opposed to that of the state or the individual. In other words, the Federal state controls the individual rights and wishes to homogenize (or equalize) rights. 2. ECONOMIC: The equality of outcome versus the equality of opportunity. In other words, all people should be roughly equal in their income and capital, so the redistribution of wealth is important to achieve equality. This equality is to be sought in social areas too. 3. SOCIAL: The rejection of the state's power in sexual (indeed, most social) relationships or the results of these relationships, so that gay rights and abortion cannot be limited by the state. Social equality is an equality of outcome, not opportunity; if equal rights is to be truly equal, affirmative action is required to equalize outcomes. 4.INTERNATIONAL: the power of other nations over that of one nation, so that bodies of international recognition such as the UN can and should have sovereignty over the USA government. 5. PROPERTY: the state has authority over most forms of private property, so that (for example, development of land) property is subject to the will of the state in use or sale.
