There are always some people who equate free market libertarian politics
with a "I got mine" mentality, and there are a few of those rampant types
about. Hey, listen most of us are much more intersted in finding a new
paradigm that solves the problem, not ignores it. Sanctioning victim
mentality is not going to solve a thing. It hasn't in the past and it isn't
likely to in the future.

You yourself stated that you didnt have a solution. Asking questions is much
more productive than brandishing insults. Obviously you read this for a
reason. Maybe there is value in this philosophy for you. I value compassion,
some do not. A small percentage of people actually think it is EVIL... most
have an understanding of when it is appropriate and when it is damaging.
