liberalism across the atlantic
“Leftist infantilism” and “revolutionary infantilism” are among the terms used to refer to the rush to embrace noble ideas when they are stripped of the contexts, processes and ramifications on various dimensions and fluctuations of human affairs. Liberalism is one of the most important schools of political philosophy to have influenced the course of human life. Premised on the belief in the inherent freedom of individuals to organise their societies and governments, its applications have undergone various degrees of success and changes, much as has been the case with the other political belief systems.
