Muscular liberalism is a form of liberalism advocated by British Prime Minister David Cameron that describes his policy towards state multiculturalism. The aim of the policy is to build a national identity to prevent people turning to all kinds of extremism as state multiculturalism failed in integration of societies with the beliefs, policies, and values of host country.
Cameron coined the term in a speech in Munich on 5 February 2011. According to David Cameron, "Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream. We've failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong."
Critics and speculators believe "muscular liberalism" will be the new "ism" which Britain will follow to tackle growing religious terrorism and extremism, subsequently adapted by all European countries including Commonwealth Nations.
[H.G.] Wells hoped for activists who would use what he considered to be ‘fascist’ means (technocratic authoritarianism and force) to achieve a liberal social end. In contrast, a ‘liberal fascist’ would pursue fascist ends but in a ‘liberal’ or at least more ‘liberal’ way

Well Misoir, looks like you have found a new ideology to define your ever-changing political beliefs. Good for you?

There will still be arguments and debates, but when things start to get physical and nasty the legal system will step in to resolve this conflict. Over time the legal system will adapt and change as these new cultures are absorbed into the community, but through the slow, usual processes of community acceptance. The line has to be drawn some where and I support where it has gone.

I really see nothing wrong with more activelly protecting and promoting the liberties and human rights western civilization established
Good! Preach it from the rooftops! I want people to know and to respect liberal fascism for what it is. I am rather fond of it, myself. I want the People to know the name of what they are constantly demanding, and I want them to say it loudly and proudly. If there is one thing that can cure the cancer of the world, it is honesty.

I agree multiculturalism has failed abysmally, but this is mainly due to insular elements, brought about by racism from the indiginous people. It really isn't about cultures, faiths ,beliefs. It's about being accepted into U.K society and being given a chance. Unfortunatley despite various discrimination legislation introduced since the seventies, the MSM pick on particular stories relating to particular groups of society, in order to raise tensions. This in turn creates insular elements and extremism.
Ban preachers of hate from coming to the host country.
Strictly prevent the allocation of public money and donations to groups not being used to tackle extremists.
Barring organisations that incite terrorism at host country and abroad.
Judging the religious organisations acceptability to operate in host country based on universal human rights, support for democracy and encourage integration with host country basic values.
Strengthening national identity by allowing people to follow their religion but subscribe to the identity of their host country, by saying "I am a Muslim, I am a Hindu, I am a Christian, but I am a Londoner too".
Prevention of extremism in universities and prisons.
