- Green liberalism
Green liberalism values the
earthvery highly, and this philosophy highly values the planet being passed down to the next generation unharmed. [ [http://mqup.mcgill.ca/book.php?bookid=1701 "How to be a Green Liberal"] , (Book synopsis), Author: Simon Hailwood, 2004. (Retrieved August 21, 2008.)] Green liberalism accepts that the natural world is a system in a state of flux, and does not seek to conserve the natural world as it is. However, it does seek to minimise the damage done by the humanspecies on the natural world, and to aid the regeneration of damaged areas.
In economic issues, green liberals take a position somewhere between
classical liberalismand new liberalism: they favor slightly less government involvement than do new liberals, but far more than do classical liberals. Some within the circle of green liberals practice free-market environmentalismand thus, sharing similarity with classical liberalism or libertarianism. This is one of few reasons why blue-green alliance is possible in politics.
Conrad Russell, a British Liberal Democrat member of the House of Lords, dedicated a chapter of his book "The Intelligent Person's Guide to Liberalism" to the subject of green liberalism. The term green liberalism was coined, however, by political philosopher Marcel Wissenburgin - among others - his 1998 book "Green Liberalism: The free and the green society".
