Classical liberals and individual freedom

I have put on my University page a paper on 'Classical liberalism and social conservatism: neo-liberals and social conservatism'. This paper was delivered at the March conference; 'Relaxed and comfortable: challenging John Howard's Australia'. It poses questions rather than answers but will be the basis of a longer work that seeks to explain why supporters of the 'free market' are usually socially conservative.

Geoff, I regard myself as a moderately committed economic liberal but I am anything but a social conservative! I know many more like me.

Fred, I should have said 'hard liberal' in the sense that you use the term and will do this when I rewrite the paper.
