Libertarian morality: the stupid deserve to suffer.

As if to imply that to be individualistic and carry the title of "libertarian", you must also be selfish, uncaring or cruel.
The title itself attempts to reinforce an old tactically simplistic yet false assumption that "libertarians" somehow lack simple empathy or other such humanitarian attributes. For decades, this has been the stereotypical image of a libertarian in the eyes of both unknowing republicrats who blindly follow instructive media as well as the back scratching corporatist bribe takers from both sides who make the rules of the political game. This is why the moniker "libertarian" causes newcomers to feel conflicted when they start to embrace the ideas of liberty or think for themselves. To perpetuate that myth by having such a title is tantamount to an attack on the idea of human liberty itself.
