varies a lot between contexts, so, to avoid looking like
], I'll stick with the ones I know.
#1: Liberal, adjective, non-political.Stating
using a large
dosage of something
or having mostly
nonrestrictive views about issues such as sex or religion.
Example: I used a liberal amount of sugar
to make those cookies. I am fairly liberal when it comes to what Church
I go to. I am liberal and venturesome in the bedroom.
#2: Liberal, adjective, political.
Due to the sheer
amounts of hate
floating around here, I will try to be as objective as possible.
Liberals are generally on the left side
of the political spectrum. This is the same side
as communists, fascists, and socialists. However, most liberals are not communists, or fascists, or socialists to any significant degree. Communism is to the far end of Liberalism. It is about the destruction of all class and property distinctions between
the Great Leap Forward. Fascism is a strong, centrist dictatorship, but is not communist. An example would be Suddam
is the blanket term that most accurately describes what
many moderate liberals
believe. It is like a watered-down form of communist in it's media-presented
form. However, it is not that simple. It is about the government and the people aiding one another and distributing supplies and wealth according
to a system. The degree of socialism
ranges strongly, from almost non-existent levels such as in ancient Rome's alimentia, which was free bread and vegetable soup to the poor. The extreme end would be Hitler's Germany, which had programs for the betterment
of certain Germans. It brought the country out of WW1, but it turned essentially fascism
with social security.
I think I've said
enough. If you haven't figured it out already, I am a Liberal. Thats the end of part 1. I'd post more, but someone implemented limits on how long entries can be.
