Bleeding Heart Libertarians

"I’m not interested in identifying which among the many kinds of bleeding-heart libertarian I am because I’m not interested in identifying myself a libertarian. Ideological labels are mutable, but at any given time they publicly connote a certain syndrome of convictions. What 'libertarian' tends to mean to most people, including most people who self-identify as libertarian, is flatly at odds with some of what I believe." (01/02/12)
