Names, Names, What's In Names?
While surfing, I found a page with many thoughts on the terms neo-conservative, liberal, and conservative. Here are a few of these thoughts:

What are the definitions of these labels?

I'm so confused. I'm probably a liberal, but the further right my country goes, the more I feel traditional rather than radical.

So am I conservative? Do Neo-conservatives exhibit any conservative values at all? Is "the far right" a neo-conservative position?

Labels can be useful. Maybe.

>>>classical "liberal" <<<

Not only are the definition confusing, they keep changing.

What used to be called "liberal" is now called libertarian, or those who like to keep the term will say "classical liberal". But I am not sure they are quite the same.

OTOH, "libertarian" used to be an adjective applied to socialist. So you could be a "libertarian socialist" and some people still use it that way although libertarian, used to mean classical liberal is quite opposed to socialism. Nowdays "liberal" seems to mean something closer to socialism than it used to.

Just to make things really confusing....

In Australia the two major political parties are called the "Liberal" party and the "Labor" party.

The "Liberal" party is the conservative party and the "Labor" party is the left-leaning party (ie. liberals).
