Progressives, Socialists, and Black Lives Matter

Take skepticism to the next level. Question our political and economic orthodoxy! Capitalism has become more doctrinaire and destructive than religion.

Look deeper: Trump and the Republicans are merely symptoms of an economic system that is destroying the world. Modern slavery and current systemic racism developed from capitalism. Let us understand how we got here and how we can bring about fundamental change in human relations and our relationship to the planet.

Now of days there is not so much difference between social democrats and social liberals , especially since the rise of third way politics [en.m.wikipedia.org] , both are positioned on the center-left of the political spectrum [en.m.wikipedia.org] . This somewhat lengthy article might give some insight . [prospect.org]

The latter isn't an established political theory, unlike social democracy. Social Democracy is a theory of system of government and society, based not on extreme socialism but a mixed economy and directed to fair social and economic outcomes.

The word liberalism has been contorted badly by conservatives. Look at Neo-Liberalism, which had nothing to do with liberalism except to destroy it.

Watch this, and decide for yourself.

Socialism is an easy word to break down. It's doing something for the benefit of society; the Ism comes in when it becomes a practice;

Watch, please;

Please define what you mean, I have never heard of Social Liberalism to describe any political, governmental or social construct.

That makes two of us.

Social Democracy is a fusion of Socialism, and Capitalism, designed to guarantee basic human rights, and to see to it that basic needs are met, while still allowing for limited "free enterprise". Social Liberalism grew out of the eighteenth-century European Enlightenment, and is basically the idea that laissez- faire should apply to every aspect of life.(nowadays, it would be called 'Political Correctism' ). Social Democracy is designed to appeal to the masses. While Social Liberalism largely appeals to liberal-minded bourgeois, petit-bourgeois, and the 'intelligentsia'.

Probably none if Social Democracy is in practice by Social Liberals...without practitioners liberalism is a movement to change our fascist AmeriKKKa....partial Democracy exists in colleges and cities like NYC

I never heard of the latter.

I'll look it up.

I think the Canadian current government system is Liberal Socialism.

Completely different

bobwjr Level 9 June 12, 2019

How? while both support mixed economy

You are trying to compare apples and oranges, so it can't be done. Democracy is a form of government, liberalism is form of political expression.

Bobby9 Level 8 June 12, 2019

Social liberalism is a form government as well

@Noor92 No, Social Liberalism is the opposite of Conservative. Both are Parties within a Government. It is also redundant as Liberal is associated with Socialism.

The Government would be Socialistic, Capitalistic, or Communist.

You commented above to brendan on 6/12 that you thought the Canadian Government was "Liberal Socialism". I don't know, that may be, but if it is that means it is a liberal Socialist Government.
