Abstract

The modern political world could stand to learn a thing or two from John Stuart Mill. His ability to confront ideas and issues head on and understand that answers may be found in a variety of different schools of thought would be useful and a benefit to the problems of today. John Stuart Mill clearly never saw a contradiction between group advocacy/activism and the ever-important value of individual rights. This is because Mill was capable of championing classical liberalism and progressivism simultaneously; confident in the understanding that they are not opposing values.
