Classical liberalism is a political philosophy that supports individual rights as pre-existing the state, a government that exists to protect those moral rights, ensured by a constitution that protects individual autonomy from other individuals and governmental power, private property, and a laissez-faire economic policy.

It follows a tradition of thought from John Locke to Adam Smith to Frederic Bastiat to Ludwig von Mises to Friedrich Hayek to Robert Nozick, of philosophers, economists, and political thinkers, who study and promote individual liberty, notably against the arbitrary power of governments.
