You know those things that are so wrong you don’t even know where to start? Yeah, this is one of these. It is so, so clear that whoever wrote this doesn’t have a clue about political philosophy and has probably never bothered talking to a liberal, because if they did and if they had, this paragraph would not be in this book. (I’m trying to assume good faith, here, probably unwisely.) And though liberals may hold any or all of the beliefs described here, that does not make those beliefs part of liberalism. I do not see a single sentence that accurately reflects the principles of liberalism, classical or modern. All I see is another attempt to connect liberalism with atheism.
