Essays, podcast episodes and poems from the Food for Free Thought blog about classical liberalism, the progressive movement and free speech.
“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
– John F. Kennedy in his 1961 Inaugural Address on individual agency at the root of democracy
“In this age, the mere example of non-conformity, the mere refusal to bend the knee to custom, is itself a service.”
– John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
It’s very possible that classical liberalism is the anodyne desperately needed in our politically divided world. For a classical liberal, respect for structure and governance is not opposed to a passion for social, political and economic change. Tenants of classical liberalism are present in the nobler aspects of both modern liberalism and conservatism.
