Successful liberals may practice capitalism, but by professing socialism they gum up the works for the rest of us. Maybe they profess socialism because they feel guilty about their wealth. But if that's the case, they should open their checkbooks and send money to the charities of their choice--and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

Instead, they promote State-mandated "charity," i.e., fascio-socialism, i.e., a system of legalized extortion, confiscation and redistribution. Liberals fancy themselves selfless and idealistic for their welfare-state advocacy, much as the neocons deem their interminable regime of humanitarian bombing (how else can the Benevolent Hegemon bring democracy, women's rights and lower golf scores to the unwashed wogs?) selfless and idealistic. Libertarian theory can teach both camps that no matter the alleged idealism of their ends, the means employed to advance those ends are cruel, wicked and unnecessary.
