The New Tories

October 15, 2010 by

It seems needful to remind everybody what liberalism was in the past, that they may perceive its unlikeness to the so-called liberalism of the present. Most people have lost sight of the truth that in past times liberalism habitually stood for individual freedom versus state coercion. FULL ARTICLE by Herbert Spencer

From Wikipedia:

On 17 January 1935 Lloyd George sought to promote a radical programme of economic reform, called “Lloyd George’s New Deal” after the American New Deal. However the programme did not find favour in the mainstream political parties. Later that year Lloyd George and his family reunited with the Liberal Party in Parliament. In March 1936 Lloyd George met Adolf Hitler at the Berghof in Berchtesgaden and offered some public comments that were surprisingly favourable to the German dictator, expressing warm enthusiasm both for Hitler personally and for Germany’s public works schemes (upon returning, he wrote of Hitler in the Daily Express as “the greatest living German”, “the George Washington of Germany”).
