●Hey and welcome!● ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
●What makes you a liberal? ●
Social Liberalism "is a political ideology and a variety of liberalism that endorses a market economy and the expansion of civil and political rights, and also believes that the legitimate role of the government includes addressing economic and social issues such as poverty, health care and education." (the ever accurate Wikipedia) Not every liberal believes the same things but their are always some similarities such as desire for equality of various kinds.
●Why was this made? ●
This is a space for productive discussions with liberals and non-liberals alike. Make me think! I want everyone to be able to think long and hard about their views so that we can make sure we have the best views we can. Of course, some discussions may pull us farther apart but some will unite us. No one will ever be reported for controversial views.

●About our Managers ●
Ello. You may know me, I'm 16, female and left leaning in terms of my political views although I identify as non-declared (some call it independent). I am a mix between a second and third wave feminist. I am Christian, and I am a LGBT+ ally. I am also a Native American (Pipil, purépecha, mexica). I am an activist and I strive to help native youth connect to their culture. I hope to better youth mentally (school and learning,) spiritually (through their culture,) and physically (outdoor activities and sports.)
Heyo guys! I'm Zia - bi and agnostic, and Latina. I'm 13 and in 8th grade, yay school (not)! I enjoy debating a lot, and politics are interesting to me and I think it's important to know about them. I'm not the most active in this studio but I try my best to check in.
Hey, I'm a teenage male, I'm an Atheist, a Social Democrat and I'm British. I currently support the Liberal Democrats. I'm also a Disestablishmentarian. I'm up for a debate (most of the time) but it may take me a while to reply. One day I hope to get in to politics and improve the lives of those living in poverty, but for now I debate on Scratch.
Hi. I'm a teenaged moderate (SUPRISE!) Christian straight male. I currently identify as an independent. I can be very lazy and can be a procrastinator which hopefully won't affect my admin career. I am here to share my political opinions and talk to people. My philosophy can summed up as "The world.sucks, so let's laugh at it" or "The world sucks but we can make it better."
