  • Classical Liberalism (17th-19th century)
  • This includes revolutionary potential which is one of the key ideas of John Locke's theory, with the belief that the state should be driven by the representatives (not masters) of the people. This meant that in western democracracies, bringing forth this idea would require arguments and potentially a revolution.
  • Locke's theory then later became associated with England's revolution in 1688.
  • Another key feature of classical liberalism is, negative liberty this is a notion of freedom that involves individuals being left alone to pursue their destiny. Any attempt to interfere with individual actions maytherefore be judged an infringement of liberty.
  • Another feature is the Laissez-faire which is capitalism based on the liberal belief in private property, and the classical liberal belief in ‘negative liberty’, this is an economic system which allows private enterprise and capitalism to operate with little or no interference from the state.
  • Another feature of classical liberalism is minimal state, that reflected the conceptof ‘negative liberty’ by minimising its activities —for example, legislating and taxing as infrequently as possible, while confiningits range to areas such asdefence and the protectionof private property.
