A Definition of Classical Liberalism?

"Being a classical liberal means being a conservative when you need to preserve liberties you already have, a radical when you have to gain liberties you don't have yet, a reactionary when you need to regain liberties you've lost, and a revolutionary when you can't be free any other way. And always progressive, because without liberty, there can be no progress." -- Carlo Cardasco, European director of Students for Liberty (via Oliver Cooper) Discuss.
