    Not at all. We just disagree very sharply with those on the far wrong about how to express “empathy”.

    There have been numerous studies that show that in general, conservatives are far more generous in voluntarily donating to, and otherwise supporting charitable causes, than liberals.

    Liberals are happy to make a show of being “generous” with other people's money, through the support of government policies that steal wealth from those who have rightfully earned it, to be given to those who have not; but are rarely generous with anything that is legitimately their own to give.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

I am not saying I really think that everyone on the far left thinks that but it is basically the same thing you are asking.
    as you are solving poverty...people still get hungry.

    Typical Libertarian thought process. Fix poverty and everything works out.

    A person who the poster did not know personally, who is deceased since the early 1980's, and who is only known through fictional writings.

    I'm biased? And there was no indicators of any of it being a joke. If something said on a forum is meant to be a joke someone usually puts up some emoticon or some wording to indicate that it was meant as a joke. Where is yours?

    Cute. I did the same thing with your name. Know what came up? A section indicating that your user name is associated with not having empathy also. Interesting that huh? But don't worry, I didn't do it with just your name. I also did it with my name. Guess what...same type of BS. Funny how that happens huh?

    Again, a word to the wise. If you want to say a joke or be sarcastic it is usually a good idea to give some sort of indicator. Emoticons are most often used for just this very thing. People also use things like "j/k!" or "/sarcasm" etc etc.

    Not supporting the state abusing human rights and violating the rule of law by taxing one citizen to give their property to another citizen...

    ... does not equate to a lack of empathy for the poor.

    i think you must have hit reply to the wrong post. Nothing you typed has anything to do with my post.

    It really depends on the far-right person in question. You can't paint everyone with the same brush. Some genuinely lack empathy, some don't.

    I see a posting deficiency on your part, not on others ability to understand.

    Re: Do far right Conservatives/Libertarians lack empathy?

    I would say that there are certainly those who have chosen to be "libertarian" only as a way to validate their sociopathy, but there are also principled libertarians, so I wouldn't make any blanket statements on the subject.

    Seems to me that if a person is far ANYTHING, they tend to inhabit a territory beyond reason and are usually so self-centered as to place the axe they grind above all else, including other people.
