Need, greed and compassion

"Joseph Sobran recently wrote that, in the current lexicon, "need" is the desire of people to loot the wealth of others; "greed" is the desire of those others to keep the money they have earned; and "compassion" is the function of those who negotiate the transfer.

The ruling elite may be considered the "professional compassionate" class. It is easy, of course, to be conspicuously "compassionate" if others are being forced to pay the cost." Egalitarianism and the Elites, Murray N. Rothbard
