A so-called "bad" thing to be before, now and probably in the future. It's been somehow turned into an attack word. What people don't realize is that no kind of progress is made without even an ounce of liberalism in your blood. Civil rights movement? Liberal from MLK Jr. Free speech/checks and balances/etc.? Liberal idea from Enlightenment thinkers. Any kind of new technology? Liberal in the sense that you want to change the existing conditions. Face it. Any kind of change, whether good or bad, is promoted by liberalism.
