Liberalism, especially Classical Liberalism, is a political belief based on equality BEFORE the law. It is mainly held by classical liberals, some libertarians, and a small amount of right-wingers. It should not be confused with Libertarianism, which is based on liberty. Its alleged opposite is Conservatism, the political view based on the conservation of societal values. However, its objective opposite is any group or ideology which puts law BEFORE equality.

Liberalism is also unfortunately often confused and conflated with leftism, which is the complete opposite and mortal enemy of real liberalism. This is mainly due to the fact that many leftists falsely call themselves liberals or libertarians, despite liberals and libertarians having very little in common with leftists (except for maybe the freedom to have an abortion).
