Compulsion is not compassion

The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn’t work in meeting certain essential societal needs.

However, it only stands to reason that if society freely recognizes an essential societal need in the voting booth, it will freely recognize it outside the voting booth.

In other words, compulsion is not necessary for compassion.

Compulsion is merely a means to shift one’s own conscience-driven responsibility onto other people, and is therefore not only immoral, but uncompassionate, socially destructive, and ethically corrupting.
