Liberalism/Spencer: Spencer saw society as an evolutionary organism with no legitimate reason and no meaningful criteria for state influence. For him, liberalism originally meant "individual economic market freedom in contrast to control by the authorities, but this resulted in a change in meaning in the direction of a state forced system in the alleged interest of individual welfare".(1) See also Inequality/Friedman, Interventionism/Friedman.
