Ryan Chapman dissects “The Evolution of American Liberalism”.

He sets apart the terms liberal right, liberal left, conservative, progressive, and winds up with a new Nolan chart. 

In particular, progressives are not liberals.

Liberals, by definition, want do define freedom at the granularity of the individual.  Conservatives and progressives both believe that too many individuals fall behind and society becomes unstable, and both focus on tribal or intersectional identities as shared rather than focusing on the individual.
