Mill reveals himself to be more than just another empiricist-utilitarian philistine, but not by much. He stretches himself beyond the limits of the liberal bourgeois thought in which he was raised, but only to balance it out by the incorporation of the allegedly valid insights of reactionary philosophy. Mill's recognition of German philosophy via Coleridge reveals that anything progressive in German idealism was filtered out of it and it was incorporated into Britain by Coleridge only for reactionary purposes, as a right-wing Romantic reaction. And Mills's incipient social democratic attitude, bolstered by Coleridge's notion of the ideal state and the ideal clerisy, is, philosophically, the importation of organic conservative and reactionary communitarianism into his purview, as a way of mitigating the chaos and class conflict induced by unrestrained bourgeois liberalism. Mill anticipates not only the managerialist welfare state of social democracy and Fabian "socialism", he unwittingly anticipates 20th century corporatism fascism as does Carlyle's romantic anti-capitalism.
