    I haven't come across one person who is feeling confident... A bit scary... :eek: Perhaps the grade boundaries will reflect that though!

    Nah American politics which isn't bad, it's just all the modern examples and stupid Supreme Court cases that are hard to remember
    But the presidential race at the moment helps with examples a lot :laugh:

    Both believe in key aspects of individualism, freedom and rationalism

    Both believe in foundational and formal equality

    Both disagrees with equality of outcome

    Both believe that human nature is rational yet self serving

    Both believe the state is a necessary evil and the mechanistic theory of the state

    You're welcome One other thing, a good conclusion for the question could be that modern liberals haven't broken away from classical liberals, they have simply updated the classical theories to apply to a modern world
