It's a name imposed by radicals

It's a name imposed by radicals.
There are no self-described "neoliberals".
The term is used by radicals who are trying to distort/destroy FDR/LBJ mixed-economy liberalism.
Neoliberalism, at best, is actually conservatism. No liberals eschew government intervention but radicals try to make people think that liberalism = conservatism.

Not really much to offer. I've heard worse but still mostly can't.
