Liberalism is one of the most influential schools of international political theory. It is the opposite of Realism. While Realism claims that all international politics is about states trying to become more powerful than other states, Liberalism believes people can and do cooperate on an international level, whether through trade or international institutions. It also believes that non-state actors such as TNCs and NGOs can have a big impact.

What do you think of this theory, is it more or less true than Realism? Have I described it accurately or not?

It might be more technically correct to say that "Liberalism espouses the notion that people SHOULD cooperate on an international level, whether through trade or international institutions." Remember that you're talking about a philosophy, and not a science. Even if you presume that you are debating ideology, you're still making an assertion that the greater good (which is a philosophical concept) matters more than the indivudual thinks that it does.
