Bernie Sanders, Tim Farron, and the regime change which has taken place within liberalism
Posted onJune 15, 2017|Comments Off on Bernie Sanders, Tim Farron, and the regime change which has taken place within liberalism
In my new book on Constitutionalism, Democracy and Religious Freedom. To Be Fully Human (Routledge, 2017), I note how partly under the influence of the social and cultural revolution of the 1960s, liberalism has arguably developed from a means of managing diversity in the direction of an ideological agenda of its own. Illustrative of this development is that for some scholars it has now become a question mark if, and to what extent, religion should be tolerated at all within a liberal democracy.

His work has appeared in European Constitutional Law Review, European Public Law, Journal of Interreligious Studies, Journal of Markets and Morality, Muslim World Journal of Human Rights and Oxford Journal of Law and Religion.

@Yascha_Mounk If you have time at all, please consider reading the excellent review by Robert Joustra mentioned in my pinned tweet. It very helpfully tries to situate my modest attempt in the broader context of the debate about Patrick Deneen’s Why Liberalism Failed, among other books.
