    A political orientation that favors social progress by reform and by changing laws rather than by revolution.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism

    Liberalism (from the Latin liberalis) is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas such as free and fair elections, civil rights, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free trade, and private property.
