Again, this idea that conservatives have no heart – no capacity for empathy – is simply untrue. It is a frightening misconception, because it implies that the only way one can properly empathize is to pilfer a neighbor and give of that which is not theirs.

That is a perversion of empathy. True empathy is just. True empathy looks at a situation from every angle, regarding each person as equal, and not valuing the needs of one above the rights of another.

Consider healthcare as an example. The rank and file leftist looks upon the uninsured and sees their plight in a vacuum. How would you feel if you were sick and could not afford care? That’s where their empathy stops. It does not extend to the care provider, who works not only to serve their patients, but put food on their own table.

Conservatives empathize all around. When we look at the uninsured, we consider how we might lower their costs. We do not leverage one person’s misfortune as an excuse to impose upon others.

True empathy reveals natural law. The ability to place yourself in the proverbial shoes of another lets you see where their interest matches your own.

The Left’s so-called empathy is a self-aggrandizing rationale for injustice. The leftist advocates theft, empathizing with one class of individuals, while wholly dismissing another.

In this way, the “Churchill” quote has it wrong. At no point in life does so-called liberalism indicate “heart.”
