Re: ¿Crisis política?

Obviously, he is using liberal in the European sense, being from Europe as he is.
My question to FDiH is and sorry for having to repeat myself, what are the colors for conservatism and capitalism, the opposite side of the spectrum.
Socialism is known as the left side ie liberal and not just in Europe.
