A moment's reflection shows that Liberalism is entirely negative. It is not a formative force, but always and only a disintegrating force.

G. C. (Georg Christoph) Lichtenberg

Liberalism is, I think, resurgent. One reason is that more and more people are so painfully aware of the alternative.

Let's trace the birth of an idea. It's born as rampant radicalism, then it becomes progressivism, then liberalism, then it becomes moderated conservative, outmoded, and gone.

Powell Clayton

Liberalism, above all, means emancipation -- emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from prejudice, from discrimination... from poverty.

Hubert Humphrey

Discoveries made during the last hundred years have shown that liberalism is the best system to improve a country's well being.

I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

Leo Tolstoy

A man who has both feet planted firmly in the air can be safely called a liberal.

Camille Anna Paglia

The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics,that determines the success of a society. The central liberal truth is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan

The Liberal State is a mask behind which there is no face; it is a scaffolding behind which there is no building.

Benito Mussolini

Liberalism -- it is well to recall this today -- is the supreme form of generosity; it is the right which the majority concedes to minorities and hence it is the noblest cry that has ever resounded in this planet. It announces the determination to share existence with the enemy; more than that, with an enemy which is weak.


The essence of the Liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.

Bertrand Russell

I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators -- they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?

Barbra Streisand

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until one day America will be a Socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.

My objection to Liberalism is this that it is the introduction into the practical business of life of the highest kind namely, politics of philosophical ideas instead of political principles.

Benjamin Disraeli

I think Democrats made a mistake running away from liberalism. Liberalism, uh, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John and Robert Kennedy - that's what the Democratic party ought to reach for.

Theodore C. Sorensen

The belief that recipients of government aid are better off the more we spend on them is remarkably persistent. No matter how many times this central tenet of liberalism gets debunked, like Brett Favre, it just keeps coming back.

Paul Ryan

Whoever lives in Berlin note, and doesn't die of Liberalism, will never die of vexation!

Ferdinand Lassalle

I think experience will teach you a combination of liberalism and conservatism. We have to be progressive and at the same time we have to retain values. We have to hold onto the past as we explore the future.

Oliver Stone

Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face.

Thomas Sowell

It's interesting that when economic times were the hardest, that's when many people embraced liberalism.

Whitney M. Young

There are two kinds of liberalism. A liberalism which is always, subterraneously authoritative and paternalistic, on the side of one's good conscience. And then there is a liberalism which is more ethical than political; one would have to find another name for this. Something like a profound suspension of judgment.

Roland Barthes

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.

Liberalism can only be defined negatively. It is a mere critique, not a living idea.

Francis Parker Yockey

Does defending liberalism leave you friendless and perhaps wondering about your breath?

Phil Ochs

Ultraliberalism today translates into a whimpering isolationism in foreign policy, a mulish obstructionism in domestic policy, and a pusillanimous pussyfooting on the critical issue of law and order.

Spiro T. Agnew

The hard-core intentionalist expresses only the most remote concern for consequences - usually, some vague, distant utopia. But this is, in most cases, a rationalization. His real satisfaction comes from a sense of doing the right thing - even when right has, in his mind, no clear connection with reality.

Robert James Bidinotto

The American insanity for Loving Everybody is ruining my good temper and delivering my stomach to enormous bouts with acidity.

Taylor Caldwell

The label of liberalism is hardly a sentence to public ignominy: otherwise Bruce Springsteen would still be rehabilitating used Cadillacs in Asbury Park and Jane Fonda, for all we know, would be just another overweight housewife.

Barbara Ehrenreich

One of the great fallacies of our time is that the Nazis rose to power because they imposed order on chaos. Precisely the opposite is true

Liberalism, austere in political trifles, has learned ever more artfully to unite a constant protest against the government with a constant submission to it.

You just stood there screamingFearing no one was listening to youThey say the empty can rattles the mostThe sound of your own voice must soothe youHearing only what you want to hearAnd knowing only what you've heardYou, you're smothered in tragedyAnd you're out to save the world.

James Hetfield

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Left-wingers are incapable of conspiring because they are all egomaniacs.

Norman Mailer

The liberals have not softened their view of actuality to make themselves live closer to the dream, but instead sharpen their perceptions and fight to make the dream actuality or give up the battle in despair.

Margaret Mead
