This statement of principles is a list of the values that Liberalists hold as ideals. We also recognise that we live in the real world and that no set of principles can ever be fully realised, but promoting this worldview will produce a demonstrably better society than the current alternatives.

 

Individual Rights

Protecting the rights of the individual must be the highest value of society, to foster mutual tolerance and respect towards the cultivation of the dignity of every person.

 

Democracy

Constitutional democracy is the best way for a free citizenry to maintain a state and resist tyranny.

 

Economic Freedom

Property rights that begin with personal self-ownership and private property creates the most productive societies.

 

Freedom of speech

Freedom of expression is a necessary and fundamental pillar of a free society.

 

Self-Reliance

People possess agency and should be treated as such because treating people like victims becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

 

Blind Justice

Each individual should be governed by the same laws as their peers without arbitrary discrimination and be presumed innocent until proven guilty by a fair trial.

 

Secularism

Everybody is free to practice their religion, or not, as long as it does not interfere with the rights of others.
