The freedom to “do whatever you want”

Liberalism and Identity : What, roughly speaking, does it mean to be a “liberal” in the sense that Appiah is concerned with? What is his response to the old-school conservative who worries that freedom to “do whatever you want” (their description of liberalism) could be bad because people will misuse it?
