Liberalism is the correct way to think for a number of reasons. First, it individualizes people and gives them credit for their own thoughts and actions. Second, it relies on reason as the guide for discovering truth and meeting human needs, instead of blindly following tradition or emotion. Third, liberalism upholds the idea of natural rights - that is, the rights we have simply because we are human beings - which means that everyone is entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Finally, liberalism promotes a society in which people can freely interact with one another, exchange ideas, and pursue their own interests without harming others. In short, liberalism is the best way to think because it is based on reason, individualism, and freedom - all of which are essential for a just and prosperous society.

'First, it individualizes people and gives them credit for their own thoughts and actions' - how does that fit with positive discrimination and reversal of the presumption of innocence for men?

The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.

It depends what you mean by liberalism. Classical liberalism or modern liberalism? Free speech/expression/market based society or neomarxism/neofeminism/identity politics?

Because those are two very different ideological frameworks. The former works well everywhere it has been adopted.

I think they [Democrats] are assuming that things are as they always have been, and that is that the media would shield for them, that the people believe the media and that they could say and do pretty much anything they wanted. What they haven't taken to account is that people across this country are waking up. They're recognizing what's going on. They're recognizing the manipulation that is occurring. And I think they're going to see and pay a big price for it coming down the pike here.

Anyone who studies the history of ideas should notice how much more often people on the political left, more so than others, denigrate and demonize those who disagree with them, instead of answering their arguments.

Yeah, it's true.

There's a fundamental difference exampled here between your point and mine. Your point shows someone attacking you while debating you with links that demonstrate points. The left's attacks are to avoid having to make points all together.
