1828 is an online neoliberal publication.
With the recent resurgence of socialist ideas on the left and social conservatism on the right, 1828 provides a platform for individuals to encourage the alternative: economic and personal freedom.
We believe that all our lives have been positively changed by the spread of free-market capitalism, as well as social liberalism. Whether it’s the vast technological changes we have enjoyed, the life-changing advances in medicine, the global reduction in extreme poverty, or the advances in women’s and LGBT+ rights, we know that economic and social liberalism – giving individuals power over their own money and lives – is the path to a more prosperous, inclusive and accepting society.
As Milton Friedman said: “Underlying most arguments against the free market is the lack of belief in freedom itself.”
We at 1828 know that when individuals are free to choose for themselves, they choose freedom. Indeed, no generation has ever been as liberal-minded as young people today, so let’s embrace – and win – the battle of ideas.
