Liberalism can in no way be associated with right wing if it canít be associated with left wing politics either.
Where did I say that Liberalism is associated with the likes of fascism?
I did point out that two people that get 'tarred' as 'right wing' have pursued more Liberal policies than many others.
I agree that Liberalism fall between fascism and communism, but the left-wing ideas of the social collective or the commune subverting the individual are the opposite of the the Liberal idea of the liberty of the individual. So a 'liberal leftie' is a contradiction of terms. There are very grey boundaries in politics, but for true Liberals the individual can be subverted to neither an elite nor a collective. Free market economies and getting the government off the backs of the people are Liberal concepts, no matter how you might want to view the individuals involved!
