What it means to be a liberal

To avoid misunderstandings I wish to make it quite clear that I use the terms ‘liberal’, ‘liberalism’, etc., always in a sense in which they are still generally used in England (though perhaps not in America): by a liberal I do not mean a sympa­thizer with any one political party but simply a man who values individual freedom and who is alive to the dangers inherent in all forms of power and authority. [xiii]
