What do we Believe

We believe that ideas within the classical liberal intellectual tradition are a driving force of well-being for all people.

Each of the principles and ideas we describe below has a rich intellectual tradition of its own that continues to develop. These brief descriptions are intended to serve as a starting point—an invitation to inquiry—that we hope will lead to deeper conversations.

1

Human Dignity

Human Dignity is the foundational principle that every person possesses dignity simply by virtue of the fact that they are human beings.

2

Individual Freedom

Individual Freedom is the default starting point classical liberals favor, as it leads to patterns of widespread human flourishing. 

3

Voluntary Action

Voluntary Action is the presumed standard for how we achieve what classical liberals take to be the social ideal: a society of mutual benefit based on peaceful cooperation. 

4

Toleration and Pluralism

Toleration and Pluralism are complementary principles that build upon one another toward a good society. This variant of toleration is put in service to defend freedoms of speech and expression. Classical liberals also point out that toleration tends to lead to pluralism

5

Spontaneous Order

Spontaneous Order is the idea that much of the order within society—widespread social coordination—arises not by virtue of human design, not by top-down rational control, but by bottom-up processes of trial, error, learning, and course correction. 

6

Peaceful solutions

Peaceful solutions are key to fostering a society in which individuals go about their daily affairs in a context of voluntary cooperation and in the absence of violence or war. classical liberals favor the free movement of capital and labor, people, goods, services, and ideas across borders,

7

Economic Freedom

Classical liberals tend to favor public policy grounded in the principle of economic freedom over policies grounded in the principle of economic control. Entrepreneurial discovery in the context of market prices is, in other words, an ecosystem that generates creative solutions.

8

intellectual humility.

A classical liberal understanding of the market economy, for example, recognizes that the knowledge required for complex social coordination is fundamentally dispersed across billions of market participants.

9

The Rule of Law

The Rule of Law is the principle that society must be governed by rules that apply, impartially and equally, to all people. The rule of law also serves as a constraint on state power.

10

Civil Society

Civil Society is the sphere of voluntary human action that exists between the individual and the state. Classical liberals recognize that the institutions that constitute civil society

11

Freedom of Expression

Freedom of Expression, which affords every person the right to voice his or her own opinion, fearlessly and publicly, ensures that no good idea goes unheard and that no bad idea goes unchallenged.

12

Justice

Justice in the classical liberal tradition is the principle that the individual rights of all must be respected. Justice requires that government respects the rights of the individual.
