The assertion that liberalism is a dominant political ideology in Western democracy cannot in all seriousness be disputed. The premise of this assertion is evidenced through embedded notions of acceptable modalities across economic and social structures within the West and its institutions, both private and public. Liberalism operates and strives to promote the existence and the proliferation of activities that further promote a fundamental precept in the sustainability of the creation of wealth and capital.

This article discusses the intersection of liberalism and technology and whether the legal protections of the law (as understood within liberalist construct) should be afforded to digital technology such as social media.
