Proper meaning

Compassion isn’t helping someone who needs help. Compassion is using the threat of armed force and imprisonment to take money from people, to be given to bureaucrats who will use it to fund programs that are described as helping people who are described as needing help.

The proper use of words will avoid many of these misunderstandings.

Bob Hawkins

And what used to be known as “compassion” is now either “fascism” or “selfishness”.
