I'll bring you articles from a different point of view then the dominant, US-focussed news here. Holland is of course not in only in Europe, but also on the left side of the European political spectrum. Within Holland, the SP is the most 'liberal' party that has any seats in the house of parliament, so it's views might be interesting because of it's contrast with the dominant opinions here.
The first thing that's different is the meaning of the word 'liberal'. I'm sure most of you know the word is used differently in America then here in the EU. The way I used it above will be the last time I'll use it in the American way. In Europe, liberal parties are the more conservative parties. They strive for more liberty on the economic market, and for expanding those markets at the cost of reducing government control and control by civil institutions. This of course leads to unfairer distribution of wealth, less rights for workers and more pressure on the environment. Whether or not these liberalisations are good for the economy i'll be happy to debate!
