Libertarians are white, affluent, and lack empathy...

...therefore free market economics is false.

:-? non sequitur

The bottom line is that leftists will NEVER be persuaded by rational argument, because their beliefs are rooted in FEELING. The arguments they put forth are merely post hoc rationalizations of those feelings. If one rationalization is demolished, no matter, they just cook up another. Marx is a classic example of this. He didn't believe in communism because his economic and historical theories proved it was good and inevitable, he started out believing in communism and proceeded to cook up his absurd economic and historical theories to rationalize it. Thus always with the left.

The left's insistence that the views of their critics are motivated by class interest and personal psychology, rather than reasoning, is called PROJECTION.
