Rebuilding Liberalism: Social Justice with Individual Freedom
A blueprint for constructing responsible liberalism
Establishing liberalism that offers freedom and social justice is possible. Doing so requires examining the history of liberal ideas and culture over the last two centuries, followed by a major overhaul of existing systems, which includes coming to terms with liberalism’s past and its major limitations, as well as upgrading liberal economics and preparing for technological disruption.
Rebuilding Liberalism combines a discussion about liberal ideas in a social context with political analysis, and builds a path forward that can ensure the survival of liberal society.
