The “L” Word

No, not that one.

Author Linda Hirshman has an interesting post up at TPM Cafe on “Liberal Principles” (it’s part one of three). Or at any rate I find it interesting, because I’ve been spending a lot of time over the last couple of years thinking about what my principles are, and it’s interesting to hear some thought about what the actual philosophy of modern political liberalism might be. As intriguing as her arguments are, I sort of like what one commenter proposed: liberals are simply for democracy and the rights of man.

I can go with that for now.
