CLASSIC: Thomas Sowell takes just four minutes to DEMOLISH 100 years of liberal thought

Like many conservative intellectuals, Thomas Sowell was originally a member of the Left in his youth. His Marxist beliefs continued to his graduate education, even as he studied under the late-libertarian Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman.

It wasn’t until he took a summer job at the Labor Department that he realized the government wouldn’t be even remotely capable of creating the society he had envisioned.

It wasn’t the inefficiency of government alone that led to Sowell’s conversion to conservativism – it was the reality-free approach liberals took to the issues they championed.


Watch him explain below:

http://www.allenbwest.com/matt-palumbo/classic-thomas-sowell-takes-...

“Liberals are for helping people who are disadvantaged, while I think conservatives want to stop people from being disadvantaged. In other words, liberals want to help the poor while they’re poor, but really the biggest benefit is to stop them from being poor, and that’s something they [liberals] have little interest in.”

Ain’t that the truth. If liberals prevented the poor from being poor, they’d have no welfare state with which to entice them to vote Democrat.

Sowell was a free thinker.   The education system of the last 3-4 decades has all but wiped that out.

Indeed he was. The left has all but destroyed the education system.
