Hi Alejandro:
Political stability by itself is not a necessarily a desibable objective.
Stability for whom? At whose expense? Some of the most repressive regimes in
recent history, e.g. Chile under Pinochet, were relatively stable.

I think you are using the term liberalism in a way which abstracts from its class
nature and historical origins.
In any event, repression - and imperialist wars - under capitalism are often brought
about by 'liberals'.
