I do not label myself a liberal. As being a student of political philosophy, I have understood one thing for sure, that you can't entirely label a person's whole gamut of thoughts and opinions about everything under the sun into one segment and say he or she belongs to this stream of thought. A person's thought might suggest colours of one division in a whole continuum more than that of another, but to rule out completely would be making a slight error in judgment.
There are liberal conservatives and conservative liberals; hence there goes the mixing of ideas. It is only for the sake of debate that tags are put on issues and said that they are of concern or importance to one group or certain groups more than to some others. That if approached with this or that political or social ideal, we can solve the matter.
Even starting within a single premise in a whole structure of a complete theory, ideas do build up and develop in ways that are confusing as to where they should exactly belong.
If anything, I call myself a free-thinker, opened to ideas and possibilities. This very notion makes anyone a liberal. Now, what conservative would not say the same thing? It is merely the words that limit and trap our actual thoughts, sometimes conveying what we really think and feel and sometimes denying us the very function they are meant for.
To a question of whether liberal thinking is a panacea for all ills of human society, I would say, we should not hurry in becoming secure in an assumption that liberal thought is the very thing to give all answers and solutions. This very process of "thesis and antithesis" and then generating some synthesis is a method that has granted us progress, both in economics and structural sense. At the end of the day, we are all humans, whether we belong to any spectrum of political ideals. We tend to deal with issues keeping our moral and spiritual beliefs along with our civic and rational approaches intact, so that we remain ideological beings, regardless of what ideology we conform to. The very struggle of doing what "ought" to be done makes us humans and sometimes the struggle is what is it is that ought to be done which then creates contest of solving issues.
I don't label myself a liberal or put myself in particular with any stream of thought, because aim is to give get solutions and put them on work. It is merely for debating and "political means" to garner any discussion on this thought is right and should be applied or that one would do.
To answer whether liberal thought can solve issues, I would say moderation would be good between both sides of the continuum and things should be dealt with as they come of, and not with any politically structured approach. Because essentially as humans, we have an instinct to do what we feel and think is right and that comfort of feeling and thinking can come from any approach.I do not label myself a liberal.

An Al-Qaeda cyber-offensive is a real and growing threat, even though Osama bin Laden’s shadowy group has yet to show a true capability, experts said. “A co-ordinated cyber-attack made in Al-Qaeda?
