For social democrats the welfare state is not a side issue, but a requirement of democracy. It ensures equal freedom – full freedom.

It is in the welfare state that social democratic ideas about freedom are made real. It encompasses not only protection against the arbitrary intrusion of the state or society – for example, freedom of conscience and opinion. Full freedom also means freedom from need and fear, the material conditions of a self-determined life.
