Where did classical liberalism originate from?
"Classical liberalism" is a recent coining by modern right-wing libertarians. The first known use is in the title of the 1962 translation of Mises' "Liberalismus": the term is not present anywhere else in the work. No evidence has been found for its use anywhere earlier. The term "classical liberal" is a propaganda ploy (unhappily adopted by some innocent academics) designed to convince us of authority and historicity of modern libertarian dogma. It's as if libertarianism needed papal succession to justify authority descended from Peter (Adam Smith) to modern popes (Mises, Hayek, Rand, etc.) There is no academic definition of Classical Liberalism, nor any agreement on who were the Classical Liberals, what comprises Classical Liberalism, or how it differs from the myriad modern libertarian sects. Instead, there is merely assertion of a great many conflicting opinions. The modern intent of usage by libertarians has a great many near-synonyms: Manchesterism, Austrian Economics, Free Market Fundamentalism, NeoLiberalism, etc. A loose but more reasonable definition might be liberalism of the 17th to 19th centuries: but that is based on time, not coherence to any set of principles. It would be hard to to find unified principles that included Locke, Smith, Rousseau and many other liberals if that period. Attempts at definition of Classical Liberalism have approached the task by donning ideological blinders and ignoring any liberals or aspects of liberalism that disagree with their preconceived definition. During the progressive era (around 1900), democratic progressive populist liberals were distinguished from free market fundamentalists as the new liberalism (and the others were the old liberalism.) Both groups can trace their ideas very clearly to their predecessor liberals in the preceding centuries.

Historically, there have been many uses of the term liberal. Four popular conceptions include: philosophical liberal, originating during the Enlightenment period with philosophers such as Hobbes, Locke, and Hume, who supported the fundamental freedom of human beings and legitimacy of government stem…ming from consent of the governed;economic (classical) liberal, originating during the 19th century, which fought government interference in the economy, supported free trade, and created open enterprise;liberal in political position, originating from the French Revolution, where being 'left' of the current political climate made one liberal, regardless of what system existed (e.g.) one could exist in a communist system, support more radical communism, and be considered a liberal);social liberal (modern US understanding), originating after the Second World War, where many philosophical and economic liberals supported welfare reform and more socially equitable wealth distributions. In Britain and Canada, they are usually called 'social liberals' to distinguish them but, in the US, where socialism and communism have become stigmatised, many refer to anyone who supports higher social equality of wealth a liberal. Technically, social liberals support capitalism with some degree of government intervention and, therefore, are neither communist nor socialist. ( Full Answer )

Liberal has a couple of different meanings in political thought. . Classical liberalism: a focus on individual rights to liberty and property, and universal equality. This was similar to modern-day Libertarianism. Generally holds that less government is better, with a few exceptions, and that free… enterprise will solve most problems. . Modern liberalism: a focus on social justice and social welfare, as well as equal rights and civil liberties. Generally holds that strong government is required to keep powerful minorities and wealthy corporations from instituting oppressive and exploitative policies. The word liberal is derived from the Latin word "liber" meaning free. Liberals believe in liberal democracy; free and fair elections; human rights; capitalism; free trade among nations; separation of church and state; spread of civil rights and civil liberties. They don't believe in welfare states and are always campaigning on the "rule of Law" (the Constitution). Basically, they believe in individual rights. The liberal movement has it's roots connected to an Englishman named John Locke in 1689. However, it goes further back to the "Magna Carta" issued in the year 1215.. ( Full Answer )

ANSWER: By definition, you can be a "liberal", by being open minded and not so strictly bound to the observance of orthodox, traditional or established forms or ways. Of course, if one were to use that definition as the sole parameters of being liberal, then that definition necessarily becomes or…thodoxy and an established form of liberalism. How can you be a liberal if being a liberal means acting solely as liberal has been defined? Being a liberal is quite different than being liberal. We can be liberal with the peanut butter when we spread it upon our bread and conservative in our politics. We can be liberal with our generosity yet conservative with our trust. But in the end, being liberal is not the same as being a liberal. In the realm of politics there are two primary views by which we regard the law and the governments created to enforce that law. There are those who take a conservative view of the law, giving as much weight and credence to the historical context of the law as to its relevance today and who rely upon the original text of any given legislation or constitution as a means to interpret the laws intent. A liberal, on the other hand, will keep an open mind about the text, only acknowledging the text and any historical context are only part of the truth, and that often times the true intent of law can not be found solely within the text. In simple terms a liberal will discuss the spirit of the law and a conservative will discuss the letter of the law. There is no right or wrong or good or bad in being either liberal or conservative. The viewpoint is yours, and as long as the goals are the same, then the variance in view point only helps us attain that goal rather than keep us from getting there. Liberals and conservatives are not diametrically opposed to each other, they are inextricably bound to each other in their purpose. As the liberal demands progress and demands it now, the conservative does not seek to impede any progress but only insure that progress is being made by insisting that prudence and patience in the effort while adhering to the letter of the law as the best and surest way towards that goal. So, while the conservative demands we keep a tight reign on the beast of burden we call government, the liberal will continue to dig their spurs into the beast, prodding it onward, demanding the ass perform as if it were a stallion. And indeed there have been times, when liberals have managed to convince mules to be stallions, and government can do remarkable things. Even so, the conservative will want to slow that progress down to a measured response. Does progress only happen because of liberals? Consider the myth of Icarus, where he, imprisoned on an island with his father, learned to fly. Learning to fly is indeed progress for humans. It was Icarus' father Daedalus, who designed and built the wings that would facilitate their escape from the island. Daedalus took the feathers from birds and fastened them together with rope and wire and hoped to keep them together with wax. His design worked and Daedalus was able to fly. He built a pair of wings for his son Icarus and taught him how to fly and then warned him not to fly too high in to the sky so as to avoid the heat of the sun that would surely melt the wax that kept the wings together. Icarus being young had a more open mind about such things and once airborne he couldn't help but soar as eagles do, higher and even higher in his majestic escape. Daedalus pleaded with his son to fly low, but Icarus kept progressing upward until the heat of the sun was finally hot enough to melt the wax of his wings and then the wings began to fall apart and disassemble and young, willful Icarus plummeted down towards his death, his progress cut short by his own hubris. Daedalus lived a long life mourning the loss of his son because he maintained a conservative view of what could be done and what should be done. Even though it is Daedalus who survives the journey, it is Icarus who is remembered. Daedalus survived but his survival enabled the myth of Icarus to flourish as the tale of a young boy who dared to soar where no man had ever soared before and for a brief and shining moment flew gloriously into immortality before discovering his own very real mortality. The myth of Icarus is a cautionary tale that warns that hubris comes before the fall. To be open minded and not bound by any dogma does not necessarily lead towards hubris and to be sure the dogmatic can just as easily be felled by their own hubris but to be open minded means to be willing to accept all information as true or at the very least as possibly true. To be open minded means to accept information that very well could be false data, as viable and equal to true data. The boundaries of right and wrong and good and bad become far more expansive to a liberal than to a conservative and herein lies the comfort of being conservative and the angst of being liberal because a conservative shouting out that that liberal on the other side is wrong is to be expected, but when a self professed liberal shouts out that the conservative is wrong, that open mind is so open any more and the boundaries of right and wrong just got closer and more constrictive. If a liberal, for example, embraces multiculturalism as a valid view point, but then rejects any culture that embraces racism or genocide as valid measures, isn't exactly embracing multiculturalism. It is this fundamental contradiction that troubles many liberals while conservatives can remain comfortable in their orthodoxy. There seems to be much confusion on what a liberal and a conservative is. It, of course, doesn't help when new terms are invented such as "neo-conservative" or "Social liberal but fiscal conservative." These terms only reveal the problem with language. Words should not be used to further confuse an issue, unless, of course, your intent is to lie. It should not be assumed that it is the intent of either a liberal or a conservative to deceive If either a liberal or a conservative are lying they are not being liberal or conservative but are instead acting upon their own agendas. The liberal and conservative are in the same camp it is the left wing and the right wing of political parties that act upon agendas. Liberals are often associated with the left wing and conservatives associated with the right wing but this is quite simply fallaciousness as the left wing is just as dogmatic in their socialist and communist orthodoxy as the right is in its corporatist and oligopolistic dogmas. Both the right and the left engage in class warfare in order to achieve their goals. Liberals and conservatives should have no business with this, as both the left and right are parties filled with brutes and bullies who seek to pervert the law towards their own end rather than interpret the law in an effort towards achieving the greater good. When we are acting in ways that lead us all towards the the greatest good to the greatest amount we are no longer left or right even though we have either a liberal or conservative viewpoint in what action best accomplishes that greater good. How can you be a liberal? You can be open minded and embrace many forms of knowledge on your journey towards progress and if your really smart you'll maintain your alliances with conservatives who might help you prevent any stumbles or falls or tragic plunges that come from majestic actions.

Classic liberals were focused more on the ability to do and say what you wish. The liberals of the 60's were about minimalization of our restrictions and maximization of our rights. The reading of Maranda rights is one example of the things that liberals pushed in the 60's. Today, liberals focus …very heavily on the social and economic redistribution of power and wealth. While true Conservatives view over taxation as a form of slavery, liberals view it as a method of redistributing of the "rich's" wealth. Liberal today are for a strong and very powerful central Government which can decide what health care you may or may not receive. They are for the distributing of freedom from the federal standpoint, rather then an unalienable right from God. ( Full Answer )

Difficult question. The biggest inspiration for creating western music was religion. It was never birthed at a certain time but it evolved from the music that came before it. In the Vatican, throughout the early middle ages monks would sing in perfect fifths and would learn and sing by ear. It was P…ope Gregory who is often credited as the man who first notated and simplified music. It was very raw and simplified but it allowed monks to read the music they were learning. This evolved, more notes and note lengths were added and eventually evolved upon until the common score was created (with a bass and treble clef.) It was during this evolution that was called the medieval period of music, where most of the music being created was coming out of Italy. After this came the Renaissance which is generally seen as being from 1400-1600 where music had evolved to be able to be played in small groups and notated easily. This is when countries such as France and Germany had their influence on the standard European music. It wasn't until the birth of Bach as a composer that the rest of Europe had effect on classical music. He was German. From that point on, Germany, Italy and France were the biggest composers. The classical era was born out of the Baroque era. It was birthed in primarily Germany and Italy. ( Full Answer )
What is freedom? Is it freedom from something, or freedom to do something? There is a difference. Classical Liberals speak of rights, and equality of rights. Reform Liberals speak of equality of opportunity, consider state education and labour laws. Marx and Socialist thinkers speak of an… equality of outcome, from each according to his ability to each according to his need. Building from that, Marx would see the sale of wage labour under capitalism (consider Classical Liberals such as John Locke or modern Libertarians) as intrinsically inequal, placing power in the hands of the capitalists. A worker has the right to chose who he works for, but if he must choose between working for an oppressive factory owner or another oppressive factory owner or being unemployed and starving, then is this actually freedom? Try taking a look further at 'The German Ideology' and 'Wage Labour and Capital' and consider Marx's critique of the capitalist system advocated by Classical Liberals, like John Locke and his emphasis on property.

It contributed a lot to the common good. Keep in mind that what is today called classical liberalism, or libertarianism is not the same thing as what is used in the US and some other countries as 'liberalism' the two ideologies could not be further apart. Classic Liberalism helped the common good… by removing artificial barriers. This included artificial barriers to trade (for example, rather than everyone being able to trade with everyone else, a single government-sponsored monopoly would be the only one to trade with certain people, countries or with certain goods) this helped lower prices with competition so the average person could afford more goods like clothing and food. It also included artificial barriers to life itself, a person no longer was pressured or forced to believe a certain way and so people were free to choose their own religion, a person also was no longer pressured to paint the ruling elite in a favourable light, instead they could use the freedom of the press to show corruption in the ruling class. It also helped protect minorities and dissidents by limiting the government to only have the power to intervene in specific instances so even with a majority vote they couldn't harm the minority.

Both are forms of liberalism and extoll a republican government answerable to its citizens as well as some implementation of capitalism, but differ in the extent to which they support pure laissez-faire capitalism. Social liberalism is what many in the USA refer to as simply "liberalism": it support…s government intervention in the economy for purposes of providing social services such as education, medical care, and assistance with food or shelter for the poor. Neo-classical liberalism (aka libertarianism, neoliberalism), on the other hand, is an extreme laissez-faire ideology that rejects government interference in the economy, and relies upon private businesses and the free market to provide any desired social services. Often, neoliberals and conservatives share this economic perspective, but differ in their social policies; neoliberals tend to disapprove of the conservative support of gay marriage bans, drug prohibition, and, often, the imposition of Christian religious values. One could also fairly accurately distinguish these two philosophies by their economic theories: social liberalism values Keynesian economics, neo-classical liberalism values Austrian economics.
