THE LOYAL WHIG LINKS
This is the links section of L&LP (the Free & Loyal Portuguese blog) in English. Edited by EDMUNDO BUARQUE and LEWIS WALKER, it presents a series of websites, blogs and documents with relevant texts on Whig or classical liberalism and the loyalist defense of traditional hereditary monarchy. Its aim is to defend the tradition of those classical liberal constitutionalists (Locke, Hume, Burke or Blackstone) to whom hereditary monarchy was a natural and fundamental part of a truly free and polyarchic order. This section is regularly updated.
