„I have always been strong for a large increase of labour representation in the House of Commons... Now, I dare say the day may come— it may come sooner than some think— when the Liberal party will be transformed or superseded by some new party; but before the working population of this country have their destinies in their own hands, as they will assuredly do within a measurable distance of time, there is enough ground to be cleared which only the Liberal party is capable of clearing. The ideal of the Liberal party is that view of things which believes that the welfare of all is bound up with injustice being done to none. Above all, according to the ideal of the Liberal party— that party from which I beseech you, not for my sake, but for your own, not to sever yourselves— the ideal of the Liberal party is this— that in the mass of the toilers on land all the fountains of national life abide and the strongest and most irresistible currents flow.“

— John Morley, Speech in Newcastle (21 May 1894), quoted in 'Mr. Morley At Newcastle', The Times (22 May 1894), p. 11.

„Our party should be the Filipino people. And we should be loyal not only to liberals, nationalists, or other party members, but to every Filipino“

— Francis Escudero Filipino politician 1969
Context: As we devote ourselves to the higher calling of serving our country as president and vice-president, this is the reason we will choose to remain independent, or without party. We believe that whoever runs and serves as president or vice-president should not be member of a single party (LP, NPC, NUP, NP, UNA or others). Our party should be the Filipino people. And we should be loyal not only to liberals, nationalists, or other party members, but to every Filipino.

„No left wing parties have any respect for liberal economic values; and most centre and right wing parties merely promote a paternalistic stateism.“

— Peter J. Carroll British occultist 1953
Context: No left wing parties have any respect for liberal economic values; and most centre and right wing parties merely promote a paternalistic stateism. Does it thus fall to the self-reliant students of the ruggedly individualist philosophy of magick to champion a certain measured libertarianism? p. 44
