On being a liberal

Here's a quote that I always liked. It's really the antithesis of the dogmatic way this new breed of conservatives maintains its ideology.
The essence of the liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.

-Bertrand Russell
