I hope I explained this right?AmandaCollapse SubdiscussionLynn StrausbaughLynn StrausbaughOct 31, 2017 Oct 31 at 10:38amManage Discussion EntryHi Amanda,This does get difficult to explain, doesn't it? I think you explained it well. According to our lesson, liberals are usually Democrats who would "prefer that government take a more active role in solving social problems". (DeVry University, 2017, week 2 lesson). Classic liberalism wants government to be involved in people's lives but not totally. Modern liberalism wants more government involvement to create more equality in peoples lives. "Classic liberalism expelled government from the marketplace; modern liberalism brought it back in, this time to protect people from a sometimes unfair economic system". (Roskin, Cord, Medeiros, & Jones, 2014, pg. 38).

It does get more difficult to explain the similarities among the terms, when were are so many more differences. I think, just as you said, that liberals are more interested in government Involvement into social affairs and to solve issues. And you are right, modern liberalism is more steered towards creating equality. A liberal is one who would believe in the big government ideals. Modern liberalism and modern conservatism are similar in that both have branchedfrom the tree of classical liberalism. Modern conservatism believes in the government refraining from excessive intervention in the economy. The government should promote social and moral values and regulate immoral conduct. Modern liberals believe that the government should actively intervene in the economy to correct market failures and promote fair outcomes, but the government should also refrain from interfering in an individuals' social and moral choices.Sherline HamptonSherline HamptonOct 31, 2017 Oct 31 at 1:29pmManage Discussion EntryHello everyone,
In my opinion, Classical liberalism is when people believe the government should intervene as little as possible in the day to day activities of its citizens. The FoundingFathers believed in Classical liberalism. According to Goodman Institute, classical liberalism made it possible to write the Constitution, the Federalist Paper, and otherdocuments written by those who created the American system of government. Classical liberalism is based on a belief in liberty. The only purpose of government isto protect the right of its citizens. Whereas modern liberalism is when people believethat the government should be actively involved in the lives of its citizens.
