What is Classical Liberalism by Professor Nigel Ashford

admin Saturday February 16, 2013

The wise professor Nigel Ashford explains what is classical liberalism in very short well made video.

I suggest this one as a must watch for those who have no idea about classical liberalism as well as those who are well versed. I must also point out that there are classical liberals who believe that there are no role for government at all. However it will be covered in our later posts.

Dr. Nigel Ashford explains the 10 core principles of the classical liberal & libertarian view of society and the proper role of government:

1) Liberty as the primary political value 2) Individualism 3) Skepticism about power 4) Rule of Law 5) Civil Society 6) Spontaneous Order 7) Free Markets 8) Toleration 9) Peace 10) Limited Government
