Thomas Sowell Quote: “Among the precepts that Andrew Jackson’s mother taught him were never to sue anybody for slander or for assault and battery: “Always settle them cases yourself.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Morality, like other inputs into the social process, follows the law of diminishing returns- meaning ultimately, negative returns. People can be too moral.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Just as any moron can destroy a priceless Ming vase, so the shallow and ill-educated people who run our schools can undermine and destroy from within a great civilization that took centuries of dedicated effort to create and maintain.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “We might have been better off if the question of Obama’s patriotism had been raised before he was first elected. Never should we ignore so many red flag warnings again.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The media are less a window on reality, than a stage on which officials and journalists perform self-scripted, self-serving fictions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Our national problems usually do not cause nearly as much harm as the solutions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “When government takes away options, it is bound to make some people worse off, even with intrinsicallly good intentions behind that government intervention.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I hate to make predictions, but I think the economy is going to be permanently changed for the worse. I think our foreign policy is going to lead to changes that will be definitely for the worse, particularly if we drift into a nuclear Iran, which I gather that’s what the administration is doing.”
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: “You can only confiscate the wealth that exists at a given moment. You cannot confiscate future wealth – and that future wealth is less likely to be produced when people see that it is going to be confiscated.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There are no dead-end jobs. There are no dead-end jobs. There are only dead-end people. Our current social philosophy, and the welfare state apparatus based on it, are creating more dead-end people.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The old adage about giving a man a fish versus teaching him how to fish has been updated by a reader: Give a man a fish and he will ask for tartar sauce and French fries! Moreover, some politician who wants his vote will declare all these things to be among his ‘basic rights.’”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The inefficiency of political control of an economy has been demonstrated more often, in more places, and under more varied conditions, than almost anything outside the realm of pure science.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Experience trumps brilliance.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There are only two ways of telling the complete truth – anonymously and posthumously.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If increased government spending with borrowed or newly created money is a ‘stimulus,’ then the Weimar Republic should have been stimulated to unprecedented prosperity, instead of runaway inflation and widespread economic desperation that ultimately brought Adolf Hitler to power.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Weighing benefits against costs is the way most people make decisions – and the way most businesses make decisions, if they want to stay in business. Only in government is any benefit, however small, considered to be worth any cost, however large.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The essence of bigotry is denying others the same rights you claim for yourself. Green bigots are a classic example.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Central planning, judicial activism, and the nanny state all presume vastly more knowledge than any elite have ever possessed.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The fashionable idiocy that haters must have justifications is one of those ideas that George Orwell said only an intellectual could believe – because no one else could be such a fool.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All that makes earlier times seem simpler is our ignorance of their complexities.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Any policy is a success by sufficiently low standards and a failure by sufficiently high standards.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The whole idea of equal justice under law is completely incompatible with the idea of judges deciding cases according to “empathy”.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Many Americans who supported the initial thrust of civil rights, as represented by the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, later felt betrayed as the original concept of equal individual opportunity evolved toward the concept of equal group results.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “When all is said and done, the Constitution of the United States is a set of words on a piece of paper. The only way that the Constitution can protect us is if we protect the Constitution.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Would you bet your paycheck on a weather forecast for tomorrow? If not, then why should this country bet billions on global warming predictions that have even less foundation?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Since this is an era when many people are concerned about ‘fairness’ and ‘social justice,’ what is your ‘fair share’ of what someone else has worked for?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Barack Obama has not only said that he is out to ‘change the United States of America,’ the people he has been associated with for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles and the people of this country.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Mystical references to society and its programs to help may warm the hearts of the gullible but what it really means is putting more power in the hands of bureaucrats.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Just as a poetic discussion of the weather is not meteorology, so an issuance of moral pronouncements or political creeds about the economy is not economics. Economics is a study of cause-and-effect relationships in an economy.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Both free speech rights and property rights belong legally to individuals, but their real function is social, to benefit vast numbers of people who do not themselves exercise these rights.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Why the transfer of decisions from those with personal experience and a stake in the outcome to those with neither can be expected to lead to better decisions is a question seldom asked, much less answered.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Prices are important not because money is considered paramount but because prices are a fast and effective conveyor of information through a vast society in which fragmented knowledge must be coordinated.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What then is the intellectual advantage of civilization over primitive savagery? It is not necessarily that each civilized man has more knowledge but that he requires far less.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People who decry the fact that businesses are in business “just to make money” seldom understand the implications of what they are saying. You make money by doing what other people want, not what you want.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The real goal should be reduced government spending, rather than balanced budgets achieved by ever rising tax rates to cover ever rising spending.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The only way anyone can have a right to something that has to be produced is to force someone else to produce it for him. The more things are provided as rights, the less the recipients have to work and the more others have to carry their load.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Government’s power to bully people who have broken no law is dangerous to all of us.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The government does not have some magic wand that can ‘bring down the cost of health care.’ It can buy a smaller quantity or lower quality of medical care, as other countries with government-run medical care do.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Sports are the reason I am out of shape. I watch them all on TV.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Our schools and colleges are turning out people who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The next time you see a bum leaving drug needles in a park where children play or urinating in the street, you are seeing your tax dollars at work and the end result of the vision of the anointed.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You need to be empathetic in your own personal life and we help our neighbors and our friends out who are struggling in our neighborhoods. But we don’t make bad decisions based on empathy.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The intelligentsia in the media can decide what to emphasize, what to downplay and what to ignore entirely when it comes to race. These may be individual choices, rather than a conspiracy, but individual choices growing out of a common vision of the world can produce results all too similar to what is produced by centralized censorship or propaganda.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People who have never run even a modest little business assert with great certainty and indignation that heads of multinational corporations are paid much more than they are worth. People who know nothing about medicine and nothing about economics unhesi.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Knowledge can be enormously costly, and is often scattered in widely uneven fragments, too small to be individually usable in decision making. The communication and coordination of these scattered fragments of knowledge is one of the basic problems- perhaps the basic problem- of any society.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “It is truly a triumph of rhetoric over reality when people can believe that going into politics is ‘public service,’ but that producing food, shelter, transportation, or medical care is not.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Facts do not speak for themselves. They speak for or against competing theories. Facts divorced from theories or visions are mere isolated curiosities.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Bailing out people who made ill-advised mortgages makes no more sense that bailing out people who lost their life savings in Las Vegas casinos.”
