Some people ask us: Is the John Locke Foundation a Republican group? No, the John Locke Foundation is nonpartisan.
Others ask: Is the John Locke Foundation conservative? The answer to this question is not as simple.
The John Locke Foundation believes in free markets, limited constitutional government, and personal responsibility. In the modern American political context, those principles are labeled conservative. Historically, and in most other countries today, those have been considered liberal or “classical liberal” principles. Some observers also consider those principles libertarian.
If someone asks whether the John Locke Foundation is conservative, (classically) liberal, or libertarian, the appropriate answer is “yes.”
