Now economist Daniel Klein weighs in with an essay for the Intercollegiate Studies Institute entitled “A Plea Regarding ‘Liberal’,” suggesting we should discontinue applying the venerable term “liberal” to progressive leftists who are neither liberal nor truly progressive in the common sense understanding of that term:
Today conservatives and libertarians often use the term liberal to refer to leftists, progressives, social democrats, and Democrats. Here I beg you to stop doing so. But if you are not to say “liberal,” what are you to say? One option is to put “liberal” in quotation marks or to say “so-called liberal.” But even better is to use the words that have always signified the mentality of governmentalization: the terms left, progressive, and social democrat.
