Thomas Sowell Quote: “Before the Iraq war I was quite disturbed by some of the neoconservatives, who were saying things like, “What is the point of being a superpower if you can’t do such-and-such, take on these responsibilities?” The point of being a superpower is that people will leave you alone.”

Thomas Sowell Quote: “Although the big word on the left is ‘compassion,’ the big agenda on the left is dependency.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “American prosperity and American free enterprise are both highly unusual in the world, and we should not overlook the possibility that the two are connected.”

Thomas Sowell Quote: “Lunches don’t get free just because you don’t see the prices on the menu. And economists don’t get popular by reminding people of that.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “History is the memory of a nation.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “For every expert there is an equal and opposite expert, but for every fact there is not necessarily an equal and opposite fact.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “It is amazing how many people act as if the right to free speech includes the right to be free of criticism for what you say – which means that other people should not have the same right to free speech that they claim for themselves.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There is usually only a limited amount of damage that can be done by dull or stupid people. For creating a truly monumental disaster, you need people with high IQs.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Rhetoric is no substitute for reality.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There are few things more dishonorable than misleading the young.”

Thomas Sowell Quote: “In an age of artificial intelligence, too many of our schools and colleges are producing artificial stupidity.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You cannot subsidize irresponsibility and expect people to become more responsible.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There is nothing so bad that politics cannot make it worse.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “We enjoy freedom and the rule of law on which it depends, not because we deserve it, but because others before us put their lives on the line to defend it.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Reality is not optional.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Subsidies are a shell game, not a net addition to national wealth.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People who think that they are being exploited should ask themselves whether they would be missed if they left, or whether people would say: Good riddance?”

Thomas Sowell Quote: “The reason so many problems do not get solved in Washington is that solving those problems is not the No. 1 priority: Re-election is.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Don’t you get tired of seeing so many “non-conformists” with the same non-conformist look?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Reality does not go away when it is ignored.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Someone once said that many bad policies are just good policies that have been carried too far. For example, we have taken tolerance to such an extreme that we tolerate the immigration into our country of millions of intolerant people who hate millions of Americans who are already here.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “A society that puts equality – in the sense of equality of outcome – ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom.

Thomas Sowell Quote: “A passionate commitment to social justice is no substitute for knowing what the hell you’re talking about.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you believe in equal rights, then what do “women’s rights,” “gay rights,” etc., mean? Either they are redundant or they are violations of the principle of equal rights for all.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There is no talent so ardently supported, nor generously rewarded, as the ability to convince parasites they are victims.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “When people are presented with the alternatives of hating themselves for their failure or hating others for their success, they seldom choose to hate themselves.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Asking liberals where wages and prices come from is like asking six-year-olds where babies come from.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the sad signs of our times is that we have demonized those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce, and canonized those who complain.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Liberals are very broadminded: they are always willing to give careful consideration to both sides of the same side.”
