Thomas Sowell Quote: “Asking liberals where wages and prices come from is like asking six-year-olds where babies come from.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If the battle for civilization comes down to the wimps versus the barbarians, the barbarians are going to win.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I am so old that I can remember when other people’s achievements were considered to be an inspiration, rather than a grievance.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Study after study, not only here but in other countries, show that the most affordable housing is where there has been the least government interference with the market – contrary to rhetoric.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Mistakes can be corrected by those who pay attention to facts but dogmatism will not be corrected by those who are wedded to a vision.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “As an economist, whenever I hear the word shortage I wait for the other shoe to drop. That other shoe is usually price control.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the most fashionable notions of our times is that social problems like poverty and oppression breed wars. Most wars, however, are started by well-fed people with the time on their hands to dream up half-baked ideologies or grandiose ambitions, and to nurse real or imagined grievances.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Justice at all costs’ is not justice.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Government central planning means over-riding other people’s plans.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You do not need proof for what people want to believe.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Tolerating imperfections is the price of freedom.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Liberals seem to assume that, if you don’t believe in their particular political solutions, then you don’t really care about the people that they claim to want to help.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Envy was once considered to be one of the seven deadly sins before it became one of the most admired virtues under its new name, ‘social justice’.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Among the many other questions raised by the nebulous concept of “greed” is why it is a term applied almost exclusively to those who want to earn more money or to keep what they have already earned – never to those wanting to take other people’s money in taxes or to those wishing to live on the largesse dispensed from such taxation. No amount of taxation is ever described as “greed” on the part of government or the clientele of government.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “To believe in personal responsibility would be to destroy the whole special role of the anointed, whose vision casts them in the role of rescuers of people treated unfairly by “society”.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What is called an educated person is often someone who has had a dangerously superficial exposure to a wide spectrum of subjects.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The welfare state has always been judged by its good intentions, rather than its bad results.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Someone once defined a social problem as a situation in which the real world differs from the theories of intellectuals. To the intelligentsia, it follows, as the night follows the day, that it is the real world that is wrong and which needs to change.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “An independent judiciary does not mean judges independent of the Constitution from which they derive their power or independent of the laws that they are sworn to uphold.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “It is a way to take people’s wealth from them without having to openly raise taxes. Inflation is the most universal tax of all.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Whether Barack Obama is simply incompetent as president or has some hidden agenda to undermine this country, at home and abroad, he has nearly everything he needs to ruin America, including a fool for a vice president.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The left takes its vision seriously – more seriously than it takes the rights of other people. They want to be our shepherds. But that requires us to be sheep.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Education is not merely neglected in many of our schools today, but is replaced to a great extent by ideological indoctrination.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The sad and tragic fact is that the civil rights movement, despite its honorable and courageous past, has over the years degenerated into a demagogic hustle, promoting the mindless racism they once fought against.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I’m so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you can’t beat them or join them, then do something weird. No matter how much the passengers eat, the weight of the plane stays the same. Do you sometimes feel that you are necessary but not sufficient?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Any politician who can be elected only by turning Americans against other Americans is too dangerous to be elected.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Without a moral framework, there is nothing left but immediate self-indulgence by some and the path of least resistance by others. Neither can sustain a free society.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “How are children supposed to learn to act like adults, when so much of what they see on television shows adults acting like children?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The vision of the left, full of envy and resentment, takes its worst toll on those at the bottom – whether black or white – who find in that paranoid vision an excuse for counterproductive and ultimately self-destructive attitudes and behavior.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The promotion of “self-esteem” in our schools has been so successful that people feel free to spout off about all sorts of things – and see no reason why their opinions should not be taken as seriously as the views of people who actually know what they are talking about.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Those who want to “spread the wealth” almost invariably seek to concentrate the power. It happens too often, and in too many different countries around the world, to be a coincidence. Which is more dangerous, inequalities of wealth or concentrations of power?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “How long do politicians have to keep on promising heaven and delivering hell before people catch on and stop getting swept away by rhetoric?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “In various countries and times, leaders of groups that lagged behind, economically and educationally, have taught their followers to blame all their problems on other people – and to hate those other people.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Why is history important? Without history, many people have no idea how many of today’s half-baked ideas have been tried, again and again – and have repeatedly led to disaster. Most of these ideas are not new. They are just being recycled with re-treaded rhetoric.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Engels said: “what each individual wills is obstructed by everyone else, and what emerges is something that no one willed.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What does ‘economic justice’ mean, except that you want something that someone else produced, without having to produce anything yourself in return?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Is diversity our strength? Or anybody’s strength, anywhere in the world? Does Japan’s homogeneous population cause the Japanese to suffer? Have the Balkans been blessed by their heterogeneity – or does the very word “Balkanization” remind us of centuries of strife, bloodshed and unspeakable atrocities, extending into our own times? Has Europe become a safer place after importing vast numbers of people from the Middle East, with cultures hostile to the fundamental values of Western civilization?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Balanced budget requirements seem more likely to produce accounting ingenuity than genuinely balanced budgets.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “For the anointed, traditions are likely to be seen as the dead hand of the past, relics of a less enlightened age, and not as the distilled experience of millions who faced similar human vicissitudes before.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Racism does not have a good track record. It’s been tried out for a long time and you’d think by now we’d want to put an end to it instead of putting it under new management.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The real minimum wage is zero.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “As long as human beings are imperfect, there will always be arguments for extending the power of government to deal with these imperfections. The only logical stopping place is totalitarianism – unless we realize that tolerating imperfections is the price of freedom.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you don’t control the borders, it doesn’t matter what immigration laws you have.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All statements are true, if you are free to redefine their terms.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Too often the past has been twisted to fit the visions and agendas of the present.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Cultural differences are real, and cannot be talked away by using pejorative terms such as “stereotypes” or “racism.”
