The fundamental difference between the two is that the right-wing libertarian idea of "freedom" requires us to accept that (1) the economic system and the state are necessarily separate from one another, and even opposing forces, and (2) that all social relations in capitalism - particularly the employer/employee dynamic - are a meeting of equals. Both of these assumptions are demonstrably false, as the entire history of capitalism shows very clearly.
Left-libertarianism is based on the idea of abolishing all
hierarchical and oppressive structures, and therefore seeks to abolish capitalism. In practice, left-libertarian movements - like the anarchists in Catalonia and Andalusia - have failed because they try to dismantle "the state" before anything else, and are therefore easily rolled over by more organised and powerful reactionary forces.
Put another way: "Original" libertarianism is a flawed, but internally consistent left-wing ideology based on abolishing oppression. Right-wing "libertarianism" a free market death cult that doesn't even make sense on its own terms.
