Why do people use the phrase strawman

so incorrectly?

Maybe you just read the title and then responded like usual?

I wasn't arguing that all libertarians have this morality. It is a small subset of irrational, self deceptive moral bores who think their holy NAP is a moral absolute, and for this group, the suffering of the stupid would be a moral ought whenever it is the consequence of a NAP conforming system. As a moral system, it's silly. But there are plenty of good reasons to be a libertarian that aren't moralistic.

So there is no straw man.

Anyway, your economic simplicity is funny, you really actually believe that a "true free market" - whatever that is, no example in history of private law complex markets - will produce a stable system without concentrations of wealth, easily converted into political power.
