Libertarian

  • Guest
As anybody with a real knowledge of Europe might expect, the term “liberal” in its political sense is of Spanish origin. It appears for the first time after 1812 in the Iberian peninsula, and was soon adopted by the French. Southey (in the Quarterly Review) wrote in 1816 for the first time about “British Liberales,” and ten years later we see Scott using the expression “Liberaux.”4 This term was used for the radical wing of the Whigs—which is not quite identical with the connotation we attribute to this label. In the United States “a liberal” has come to mean a person who welcomes change, and thus would not be averse to embracing or fostering a totalitarian ideology.
