The definition of conservative compassion

Turns out that the original term comes from a book which basically says to get rid of compassion to deal with the poor, since that will make them raise up and get jobs, the lazy bums.

There it was. The whole time. Compassionate Conservatism boils down let the suckers starve, and they'll get their act together. Anything else is false compassion that lets them rot.

Hm. Took this long.
