Liberalism /lib-er-ul-iz-um/: (n) a proud belief in the practice of rationalizing all fact out of an argument in order to make a point.

Of course, 250 years ago, that was not the meaning at all.  Which is why I tend to call the modern versions Progressives today rather than Liberals.

Even "progressives" is too kind, because their ideology and methods have absolutely nothing to do with progress.

I prefer "leftist" or better still "statist." Why mince words? Their prescriptions all boil down to socialism anyway.
