Somehow, conservatives successfully afflicted by the long-standing, effective marketing campaign of the Corporate Oligarchy have managed to make the term “liberal” pejorative. The strangest part is that liberals have accepted this re-designation of the word. I am a social liberal and mostly a fiscal conservative (i.e. Libertarian). I do not apologize for embracing certain aspects of liberal ideology. Liberal ideology has brought us many of the features of American society that we now treasure and that provide us average citizens with opportunity for a good quality of life.

In the piece linked to here, an excerpt of Chris Hedges’ book Death of the Liberal Class, the author makes the accurate point that liberals, like their conservative predecessors, have become the lickspittles of our corporate masters. We should fight this and reclaim liberal activism’s positive power and role.
