"In early 19th century England, radical liberals -- who may be regarded as libertarians on account of their views -- were often in sharp opposition to conservatives. As such, always allowing for the overall lack of meaning to the term, these people were on the 'left.' By the end of the 19th century, people holding the same views had often closely associated themselves with the conservatives." (12/04/11)
