Is Liberalism good or bad?

These questions rose up on me, since I see the term Liberals being used as something bad, it's almost used like it's a curse word.
In my History classes (I studied History) everytime I read about Liberalism, it was about freedom (hence the wroth libera, wich is freedom in Latin), and other things I completely agreed with.
So... when did being a liberal become a bad, no almost evil thing?




A lot of people are incredibly stupid. Liberalism ISN'T a bad thing. Don't let anyone tell you that. As stated to you, you've been hearing too many Americans speak on the subject, and there are a lot of Americans that have no clue what the fuck liberalism is.


Same can be said of Conservativism, and almost all political ideology outside of authoritarianism and fascism.

Sadly, a lot of people in the US have no clue what Fascism or Authoritarianism is. And Conservatism is constantly warped by the media all of the time, which sucks. What sucks even more is that people believe it.

If it's any consolation we can be just as ignorant up north here.

Polls change- did you know that. I remember a time when Bush was a very popular president, before everything went downhill, and I remember when everyone was all for Obama and his change, before that went downhill- Polls tell us only about the moment. Over a hundred years ago, we would've found polls telling us that seventy-five percent of American believe in the Peril of the Yellows, strange, pig-tailed, short, yellow men trying to slowly displace citizen by taking their jobs and bredding. Do Americans believe that today? I am just saying that, no, Americans are fickle, so celebrate you victory while it last, I, on the other hand, don't give a farthing for it.


Of course polls only report what was at the moment that the poll was taken. That's just common sense. But like Bush, Obama's polls are going down steadily. Which means that Americans are increasingly unhappy with the man.



Maybe it can happen, maybe not- if enough Americans are convinced that this is good, it will happen, if not, then it won't, and, probably, it won't, as many Americans, being Amero-centric, while they do have a foggy idea of how such a parliament work, they don't really care as it isn't the basis of their democracy- a worthy view, live and let live sort of thing.


Exactly.

Exactly.
So you just conformed to the premise that Americans are fickle and shallow individuals who don't give a damn, while all they can do is bitch and complain like you are. Is that why you conservatives are a bunch of hypocrites who don't know heck?

Exactly.


So, we are in agreement here- now that we are on almost good terms, being in agreement for once, let's end here, before we go on and on for pages on end.

Every ideology will get wrapped once it attain believers- Marxism use to be about worker's right, Proletarian democracy, eventual anarchy, and all that hippie stuff- now, you get things like North Korea, China, and the former USSR from it. Is it that extreme with Conservativism and Liberalism, certainly not, but, is it still wrapped all the same? Yes.
