Hating on Libertarianism

Trump Treasury boy Steve Mnuchin recently opined that taxing millionaires to provide healthcare to poor is "theft." This is a good example of why I find it easy to refresh my hatred of libertarianism, at least in its current incarnation. A cardinal principle of libertarianism seems to be that individuals, at least rich ones, don't owe anybody anything except themselves. I regard this as inimical to the fundamental principle that allows humans to cooperate in groups, the sense of shared destiny and collective responsibility.
