Bleeding Heart Libertarians

"Strong BHLs stress that libertarian institutions depend partly for their moral justification on their ability to serve the interests of the poor and vulnerable. They therefore differ from natural rights libertarians who hold that libertarian institutions are justified on the basis of something like a non-aggression axiom that must be followed regardless of the consequences of doing so for various social groups."
