Why do you equate liberalism with progression?

because progressive is the nomenclature for current liberal politics to fly under the radar... apparently, it flew under yours.

In most of the world, the words "liberal" and "liberalism" have nothing to do with leftist politics and are synonyms for libertarianism, hardly a bad thing.

Therefore, it's the perfect place to point out that the word "liberal" is misused here.

(We may, likely will, have a younger person with us, at least for a few years.)

You're thinking that you know just such a place? Will the following statement cause you to change your mind? We'd like a 3 bedroom house, with an office, and don't want to spend more than $300,000.

Impossible?

(Thanks!)
I think you are looking for Socrates' Republic.
