Yes the demands of liberalism were radical for the time, the bourgeois were once a revolutionary class. But now is not the 1700/1800s, the bourgeois control society, liberalism is the default ideology of the world in which we live.

I think I disagree. I don't think that there are a lot of justified true believers in the Liberal democratic project. I see the problem with Liberalism as being that far too much of the project is insincere and not so much that the philosophy is systemically flawed. I do think that Liberalism is insufficient, but, my critique of it only really extends that far. A sincere Liberal project would not suffice to meet the demands of Anarchists, but, would be better than the form of quasi-totalitarian Capital that exists now.
