COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY TIM FARRON IN THE GUARDIAN

Liberalism has eaten itself – it isn’t very liberal any more

I don’t agree with the analysis, but saying liberalism isn’t liberal anymore is just a fact.

Look at the paper this appears in.

If you pay close attention, you will see that a number of positions it espouses regularly could not possibly be called liberal.

The essence of true liberalism is a kind of generosity of spirit and trying to be guided by the largest principles.

That is not what we see in a world constantly yanked at by special interests.

Our governments and our press serve special interests faithfully.

The odd word of concern for the poor or disadvantaged or minorities does not make any one a liberal in the true sense of the word.
