Do Libertarians Lack Empathy? (Ep. 4, Libertarianism for Normal People)

If you’re a libertarian, you’ve probably been called “heartless” or “cruel” because you oppose the government providing services to individuals, such as education or healthcare. “You must not want children to be educated or people to receive medical care,” is a typical reaction from those on the other side of the political spectrum.

Is this the case? Or is it possible libertarians are not so good at explaining their positions? We think it’s the latter, and in this episode, we talk about why liberty-minded people are considered lacking in empathy and what we can do to dissuade others of that perception.
