I only see one motivation that drives all Libertarians. It's not
the desire for freedom or the desire for justice. It's pure greed.

If greed is the desire for unearned wealth, libertarianism won't serve it.
[Whose definition is that?]

If by "greed" you mean self-interest, do you deny that self-interest
motivates you? I assume that most people are similar enough to me
that if libertarianism is good for me, it's good for them.

Oh yeah, and in some cases it's stupidity.

Then a libertarian constitution is no threat, since all the *smart* folks
will join voluntary socialist organizations (we won't stop you).
