Parking lots at local commercial establishments provide a good example of the difference between statism and libertarianism. Such parking lots provide parking places near the entrance of the store for handicapped drivers. Why do they do that? Because statists have employed the coercive apparatus of the state to force them to do so. If parking lot owners fail to comply with the law, they face fines for their recalcitrance.
Libertarians, of course, oppose these types of laws, a position that statists just cannot comprehend. They inevitably conclude that because libertarians oppose such laws, they must hate handicapped people.
