“I am a Liberal”

“Being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be. You are welcoming to everyone when you’re a liberal. You do not have a small mind… I’m total, total, total liberal and proud of it.

I’m a total Democrat. I’m anti-Republican. And it’s only fair that you know it. I’m liberal… The ‘L’ word!”  Lauren Bacall


 

As a candid, committed liberal, I avow, advocate, and act to advance, the worth and realization of following ideals:

  1. Affirmation and recognition of the full, human equality of all persons;
  2. Resolute pursuit and reliable practice of justice for and among all people;
  3. Maximum liberty of thought, conscience, choice and action for all peaceful persons;
  4. Amicable coexistence between all creeds, colors, cultures, and countries;
  5. Truth as the ultimate desideratum and the quest for it as the primary duty;
  6. Real and lasting peace among ourselves and with all peoples of the world;
  7. Benign ecological interactions and relations among the living beings of the planet.

If any of the preceding offends any who read this, I welcome their statement of the case for alternatives. In the absence of convincing evidence, however, these seven will remain my guiding principles, my driving purposes, and my enduring priorities.

    Well said. I agree wholeheartedly. My beliefs run the same course. A Liberal Manifesto, one would wish all in the world supported. -- jk ps. We should make T-Shirts & Bumper Stickers for each one separately. I would have a different one for each day of the week. I don’t know about my car with Bumper Stickers. Would have to choose one & stick with it.

      I had not thought about the seven days in a week and the seven values. Thanks for pointing that out! I think I will make it a practice to post on Facebook something pertinent to each ideal beginning with Equality on Monday and continuing through Ecology on Sunday and then do it again!

      As always, thanks for your cogent comment!

        Would you mind if I made a poster of each line of the Liberal Manifesto and posted it every Monday on my blog ‘the secret keeper.’ I do Monday Posters with significant messages as one of my posts for that day. I would definitely give you credit on the post and link each one back to the article you wrote to show the complete Liberal Manifesto.

        The idea came to me after reading your response to my comment. I do believe those who follow ‘tsk’ would find your words very relevant and would be supportive. Hope this will be ok with you Larry. jk

          Not only am I okay with it, I am honored! Use it as you choose! It is all about spreading the word.
