Introduction

The Radical Democrats were one of the dominant forces in pre-revolutionary Russian Ukraine. Due to the splintered party system in Ukraine the timeline is limited to the post-1990 period. The position of liberalism nowadays is unclear. The Liberal Party of Ukraine (Liberalna Partia, observer LI) is a small liberal party and the Yulia Tymoshenko Electoral Bloc (Viborcyj Blok Julii Tymošenko) seems to develop into a more or less liberal party. Other small liberal parties include Liberal Democratic Party of Ukraine, Our Ukraine and Yabluko.

Waco and the Corruption of Liberalism (1475 words)
It was the largest display in the post-war period of what has become of American liberalism: not a movement dedicated to protecting the liberties of minorities or the rights of citizens, but to defending every manner of coercion at the hands of the Leviathan state.
The horrible reality is that in America, the term liberalism refers to the exact opposite: the unquestioned power of the executive to carry off state violence as in Waco, and to do so with neither permission nor reprisal from any other branch of government or the media.
Political philosopher Paul Gottfried, author of After Liberalism: Mass Democracy in the Managerial State, has recently noted the new vogue for the term "post-liberalism." It refers to the theory that freedom is essentially dangerous because it permits inequalities, discrimination, and secession from civic culture.
