I mainly want to talk about a book I read recently - "The Forgotten History of Liberalism", and combine it to discuss the recent hot topic of the Internet (or part of the Internet) - Web3. Let's start with the book "The Forgotten History of Liberalism". This special database book mainly describes the neglected development of liberalism under the current English and American word order. A large part of it is for the rarely mentioned German and French views on freedom.
Justification of the historical influence of ism. In the postscript of the book, the author also focuses on the historical perspective of liberalism to criticize the current crisis of liberalism that has fallen into individualism (so to speak). This book is slightly biased, with a special database certain reverse tilt in the historical level of Anglo-American liberalism, but its historical depth has a certain macro perspective, which can provide a clearer way of detecting the hazy outline of liberalism.
I do not intend to repeat the full text here, but mainly introduce some of the etymology of freedom, the birth of liberalism and the development of modern liberalism in Europe, as well as the binding of liberalism and the United States. The birth of freedom The word "liberty" can be traced back to liberal arts education in ancient Rome. Its etymology originally special database means liberality, which refers to a state of ethics and tolerance. The key to unity and stability. The immediate aim of liberal arts education is to train elite boys to become active and virtuous citizens of society, a state of "freedom" that not only means giving and receiving power in political life, but also signifies Citizens must serve the public interest.
