For some years now, the term “liberal” has been equated with all things derogatory.  Liberalism is not an evil thing.  But the idea that liberalism is an evil thing, is an evil thing.

Worthy of note then:

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. Russel

The business of Liberals is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. –Chesterton

Conservatives usually prefer twin beds, which may contribute to the fact that Canada has more Liberals. Newman

Turnabout is fair play.
