the party splits into market-liberal and social-liberal factions
But where would that leave those of us that are both?
SRSLY, I really dislike that analysis, I'm a liberal. The whole "market liberal" thing annoys me, liberalism is about competetive markets, it's the only way to drive profits down, break up the monopolists and hurt the capitalists.
Got to remove the barriers to entry, that's the biggest problem.
The real split should be mutualists vs capitalists, there's space for both within liberalism, if we're talking economic liberalism. If you're not a political or social liberal (with social meaning 'personal life' not social democracy) then you should be in the party in the first place. I can handle "not as liberal as me" on that stuff (like Vince), but...
