Default Re: what makes a conservative/liberal and 4 issues


Perhaps. Liberals come from Mill and Locke. Conservatives come from Machiavelli and Hobbes.

Most people dont even have an idea who these important figures are. I really wish I would of read The Price, by machiavelli in 10th grade instead of using notes, definatly need to read that one day.

However I think Conservatives would be more definated by James Madison and his idea of federalism and Adam Smith. For liberals you could throw in FDR and John Maynard Keynes.
