Libertarianism is a political philosophy emphasizing individual liberty, free market economy and a limited government. In general libertarians hold that each individual has the freedom to seek his/her happiness in whatever way (s)he sees fit, so long as (s)he does not infringe upon the freedom of others to pursue a similar end. Originally the philosophy now called libertarianism was known by another name, liberalism. In the beginning of 20th century North America this word was taken over by social democrats. These days the original liberalism is known in North America as "classical liberalism", "market liberalism" or "libertarianism". In Europe and other parts of the world the term "liberalism" is still used more or less in the "classical" sense.

This category is designated for those liberal parties, which can't be classified "libertarian" or "left liberal" (="liberal" in the meaning commonly used in United States and Canada). If the party can be classified as a libertarian or left liberal party, it should be listed in the respective category. Some parties include the word "liberal" in their names without actually being liberal in any generally used meaning of the word. Those parties shouldn't be listed in this category, but according their real ideology.
