If there is an inseparable connection, it is the one between liberals and the welfare state. They are notorious for punishing achievement through heavy taxation. There is no telling how much less drain on the economy there would be if liberals did not exist. For now, the best antidote to liberals is to use h and r block coupons to maximize savings on income tax returns and to provide thorough, accurate accounting to ensure there is no financial mismanagement.
While at first blush this appears to be a Pro-Life message, it is in fact a Libertarian one because it quite rightly points out that “Life Has To Begin At Conception – If life doesn’t count until a human is no longer dependent on others to survive, then it never begins for liberals.”, because liberals do not depend on themselves but on others. This is called parasitism.
The Qualities of Liberal Ideologies – Focusing on Minorities and the Individual
While many political idealists and philosophers would argue that individuals should either be kept in check by the government or left to fend entirely for themselves, liberalism has always attempted to bring these two extremes to a compromise that would benefit everyone involved.
The Negative Points of Liberals
One of the weakest points of liberal thinking is that it aims to support minorities and individuals, at the expense of the well-being of the many.
Another problem is that it has completely abandoned its foundation for many aspects of society that we take for granted today – including the free market and capitalism
Instead, it is well-known for things such as the social liberal program launched by president Roosevelt in the US in 1933, prolonging The Great Depression until World War 2 gave the much needed significant boost to the country’s economy.
Among the many qualities that today’s liberal thinkers do not promote are the economic theory which focuses on concepts such as free trade and the support of classical economics with minimal intervention from the government, and the introduction of more freedoms and rights for individuals to act without constraints created by a demanding and controlling government.
Limitations and Restrictions
Despite its lack of tangible qualities, liberal welfare statism still attracts a large following due to its rhetoric. It certainly falls short of what an ideal social structure – if there even can be such a thing – would be able to provide. It is essential to explore this facet as well in order to have a clearer picture of both the assets and limitations of liberal thinking.
As a political agenda and philosophy, liberalism seems to stand firm as a belief in equal rights and freedom that would promote individual empowerment, as well as diversity in political stands. But in actuality, it does nothing for the individual.
For instance, some would argue that the extreme support for equality that some liberals would promote fall short of realizing and counting on the cultural, idealistic and goal setting differences between various factions.
Also, in their attempt to allow for additional rights and support for minorities, liberals are guilty of penalizing those who worked harder for their larger income (a good example being president Barack Obama’s healthcare reforms from 2010).
Nevertheless, liberals persist in today’s society and has been a popular movement for more than a fifty years, despite having been one of the main reasons why the United States did not manage to pull out of the Great Depression until war broke out.
Bringing stale, recycled thinking and attempting to support those less capable of supporting themselves using taxpayer money, liberals – under its numerous forms – is also expected to be one of the major political driving forces of future decades.
