Views that were deemed entirely normal ten years ago even are now morally 'other': outright 'evil'. Paul Gottfried has written a book on how liberalism has shifted ever leftwards since the mid 1800's:http://www.amazon.com/After-Liberalism-Democracy-Managerial-State/dp/0691089825/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1399455805&sr=1-5&keywords=paul+gottfried
Being liberal minded definitely no longer means advocating free speech, 'negative freedoms' (freedoms 'from' as opposed to freedoms 'to do'), property rights, etc. In fact, you are labelled an 'extreme right winger' if you publically advocate the (classical liberal) right to free speech over the right not to be offended in some (non-American) Anglo countries, for example. This is pretty extreme, and simply lacks what Nietzsche called a historical sensibility: The Nazi's were 'extreme right wingers', not classical liberals!
