Classical liberalism
The ideas of liberty and equality-the central ideas of classical liberalism-had deep roots in Western history. Classical liberalism first crystallized at the end of the seventeenth century and during the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century. Liberal ideas reflected the Enlightenment's stress on human dignity and human happiness on earth and its faith in science, rationality, and progress. Most of the writers of the Enlightenment were passionately committed to greater personal liberty and equal treatment even before the law. Liberals demanded that citizens' rights had no limits except those that assure rights to other. Revolutionary leaders believed that people were sovereign. It exemplified by the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights, liberty meant individual freedoms, and political safeguards, equality meant equality before the law, not equality of political participation or wealth.
