Acutally to continue, in European usage of the term liberals are what we would call either conservatives or libertarians. This is, I believe, the same source for the usage of the term "liberal economy" the author mentions.

Sometimes, one will also hear the term "liberal-conservative" to describe such beliefs used in Europe.

For all its rhetoric, the left wants conformity, not diversity, and oppression, not freedom. That's why "Liberals"/leftists cannot be truthful. If they were they would betray the covert values of the left. If they were truthful, they wouldn't be "Liberals"/leftists in the first place.

In fact their chosen appellation is itself a deception. "Liberalism" has nothing to do with leberalism, freedom, freedom of thought, or liberty. It is an Orwellian paradox that means its opposite--like "Love is hate", "War is peace", "Freedom is slavery".
