When it comes to politics the word Liberal contains a host of nuance, some of it rather cruel, and yet Liberal Democracy is easier to define. It's where the person as an individual has merit because he or she exists. Call it a recipe for chaos, if you're really nervous, unhappy and can't afford a manicure, or whatever.
It's possible of course there's no such thing as an individual. We exist as the
product of swarming around shiny bright objects, one of which is called an
Individual. Mockingbirds, who are difficult to tell apart, are definitely
individuals and so are Wrens and Ostriches.
