To those who seek freedom and Liberty
The Liberal Rambler
My First Blog (why am I doing this)
“The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good, in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.”John Stuart Mill
Coming from a poor background of writing, I have always found it strange that I would ever decide to start my own blog. Writing is not my thing and you will clearly see this from all the things I hope to write. Its easy I guess to try and write as though something is interesting, to explain and write for people. But that is not what this blog is about its about. No, this Blog is about one thing that is important to me. Liberalism. And possibly the struggle of the Modern Liberal in a difficult more complicated world.
Liberalism can be defined in several different ways, and I sure many here will be looking for academic parts, references and study to back up claims I will surely make. But actually, this blog isn’t that, it’s an understanding a perspective of a struggle, a struggle between understand the everyday politics. Answering maybe if we can what does Liberalism mean today?
Which leads me to my first point on my blog on Liberal Thought. So, sit back and enjoy my first rambling. Find my latest blog below.
