Interesting. We should discuss this later, sometime. (More in that I am curious, than in the sense I want to change your mind.)

Because libertarianism makes little sense and lacks a great deal of compassion. I am a proud liberal.

It makes a lot of sense to me; it's not about lacking compassion, it's about retaining a sense of reality.

I don't see why libertarianism should be incompatible with a compassionate society. Look at it this way: The state is not made of magic, it is made of the same substance as "private" enterprise, charity, everything else it is made of people. It is people who choose to spend time and money on doing stuff for poor people, or whatever. If it's the case that people in a given society are willing to fund a welfare state, then they'll be willing to fund charities for them without a welfare state.

For what you're saying, It's not the definition of "compassion" to the libertarian that matters. It's the definition of "compassion" to the person who wants something. So if you don't want to give them something they want, they will dismiss you as uncompassionate. With that being said, how is libertarianism uncompassionate?

Libertarians want Democracy and freedom. The opposites want Kings and Dictators.
