Well, I like that one better. Someone once said the sign of intelligence is the ability to look at two opposing ideas at the same time.

<<Liberalism in general is much more broad

That's true. It includes both attitudes and states of mind, and political ideology as well as non-political concepts. Its so broad that it means directly contradictory things, and others that while not contradictory have little to do with each other.

In political terms it means both supporting of maximum freedom with minimum government intervention and control on one hand, and supporting big government with extensive powers and very active involvement in people's lives.

It means opposing the orthodox, but it also means support for many ideas that have become orthodox, while opposing reform of big government programs or in some other areas.>>
