Classical liberalism drew upon the ideals.

      In his book, The Once and Future Liberal, Mark Lilla bemoans the rise of modern identity politics in our contemporary liberal culture. Yet he regards this as the result of the dissolution of a broader identity politics, based on universal solidarity with the identity of the nation. Political liberalism suggests state power must be exercised and justified on terms all citizens can reasonably be expected to endorse, independently of their comprehensive identities or worldviews. For Rawls, a democratic community cannot be united by any shared ends or identities other than those connected with the political conception of.
