 Liberalism
Liberalism can be understood as (1) a political tradition (2) a political philosophy and (3) a general philosophical theory, encompassing a theory of value, a conception of the person and a moral theory as well as a political philosophy.
First, the new liberalism arose in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a period in which the ability of a free market to sustain what Lord Beveridge (1944: 96) called a ‘prosperous equilibrium’ was being questioned (Gaus, 1983b).
Those who insist that liberalism is ultimately a nihilistic theory can be interpreted as arguing that this transition cannot be made successfully: liberals, on their view, are stuck with a subjectivistic or pluralistic theory of value, and no account of the right emerges from it.

In opposition to Liberal Catholicism, Tocqueville’s “new liberalism” is secular: the Catholic clergy belongs to the Church and not to the state.

 The New Liberalism by Jeffrey M. Berry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Today's new liberalism has evolved from a traditional emphasis on bread-and-butter issues--how to increase the economic pie--to a form he calls "postmaterialism"--quality-of-life concerns such as enhancing the environment, protecting consumers, or promoting civil rights.
By analyzing the activities of Congress during three sessions (1963, 1979, and 1991), he demonstrates the correlation between the increasing lobbying activities of citizen groups and a dramatic shift in the American political agenda—from an early 1960s emphasis on economic equality to today's postmaterialist issues.
Berry concludes that although liberal citizen groups make up only a small portion of the thousands of lobbying organizations in Washington, they have been, and will continue to be, a major force in shaping the political landscape.

 The Claremont Institute: The Implausibility of a New Liberalism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
For liberalism to be and stay a fighting faith required a successful organ transplant into a body whose DNA was highly resistant.
Yet while liberal anti-Communism had played out within twenty years, the liberal opposition to "activism and armed force" brought to the fore by Vietnam is, as Packer noted, still powerful after forty years.
The first, which is congenial to Beinart's project of making liberalism a fighting faith again, is that Vietnam led many liberals to shirk America's global duties, but this departure from the spirit of '47 was a mere episode, whose effects subsided as the memory of Vietnam faded.

 Beinart: New Liberalism
They are liberal war hawks who would be unafraid to use American power to promote their values." At the Democratic convention, Biden said that the "overwhelming obligation of the next president is clear"--to exercise "the full measure of our power" to defeat Islamist totalitarianism.
Biden could suggest "a new program of national service" and other measures to "spread the cost and hardship of the war on terror beyond our soldiers and their families." But, whenever Kerry flirted with asking Americans to do more to meet America's new threat, he found himself limited by his prior emphasis on doing less.
For Schlesinger (who, ironically, has moved toward a softer liberalism later in life), in fact, it was conservatives, with their obsessive hostility to higher taxes, who could not be trusted to fund America's cold war struggle.

 The Emerging Democratic Majority WebLog - DonkeyRising
In the wake of almost every Democratic defeat since 1972, liberals can be found insisting that, if their candidate had adhered to the party's core economic beliefs and steered clear of social issues, he would have done much better, if not won.
Liberalism's success from the '30s through the 1960s was based primarily upon certain special economic and political conditions: popular pressure from below, business' acquiescence in reform, and the conviction of the nation's opinion-makers that reform was good for America.
Liberals would also have to rebuild the infrastructure of democratic pluralism through encouraging, subsidizing, and defending unions and whatever other form of countervailing social organization is feasible--from community groups to Internet-based virtual communities.
