Social liberalism, also called new liberalism (as it was originally termed), high liberalism, radical liberalism, modern liberalism, or in North America and the United Kingdom simply liberalism, is a branch of liberalism which emphasizes individual rights and equal opportunity for all citizens. For social liberals, the lack of education, health, or employment, is seen as as big a threat to individual freedom as state compulsion and coercion. Additionally, like other liberals, social liberals support (with qualifications) free markets, private entrepreneurship, and a limited state.
