"In 1976 the Radical Liberals released their "program of principles" which outlines party ideology. The Radicals wanted decentralization, but with a community rather than an individual emphasis. They also encouraged experiments that allow local communities to take over administration of common tasks such as taking care of the elderly. Radical Liberals favored free trade and the abolition of farm subsidies." (Daalder, 1987, 11 - Patti Goff)
