The Hijacking Liberals: How Edward Bernays and the FDR Democrats Befuddled the Republicans

Classical “Liberal” ideology, still recognized everywhere but the United States, was hijacked by Democrats in the 20th Century when they re-invented themselves as “Liberals” after taking control of our academic institutions. Republicans, who embodied the TRUE “Liberal” ideology have been shaking their heads trying to figure out what happened ever since. “Classical liberalism is a political ideology, a branch of liberalism which advocates civil liberties and political freedom with limited government under the rule of law and emphasizes economic freedom.” Still staggering with trying to figure out how everything we stand for and believe in is embodied in a word which we can no longer apply to our principles and values because it has been embraced by those whose ideology and values are the polar opposite…just as the word “gay” has come to represent something completely different than it’s classic definition. Still reeling with cognitive dissonance produced when psychology is married to sociology and politics? Welcome to the wonderful world of Edward Barnays and contemporary propaganda! We’ve come a LONG way since Stalin first applied the concept as a viable means of exercising government control of the proletariate by means of the media!   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_liberalism
