The Opposite of Liberal

is not "conservative." From the Online Etymology Dictionary:
befitting free men, noble, generous," from L. liberalis "noble, generous," lit. "pertaining to a free man," from liber "free," from PIE base *leudheros (cf. Gk. eleutheros "free"), ...

Clearly the opposite should be befitting a slave, ignoble, and mean spirited. How about dogmatic and authoritarian?
