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: “Slippery use of the word “privilege” is part of a vogue of calling achievements “privileges” – a vogue which extends far beyond educational issues, spreading a toxic confusion in many other aspects of life.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Nothing is more complex than avoiding the obvious.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The demands of unbounded individualism need to be weighed in the light of inherent social constraints which can only change their form but cannot be eliminated without eliminating civilization.”
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.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Wal-Mart has done more for poor people then any ten liberals, at least nine of whom are almost guaranteed to hate Wal-Mart.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Compassion is the use of public funds to buy votes.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Extrapolations are the last refuge of a groundless argument.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Guns are completely inappropriate for the kind of sheep-like people the anointed envision or the orderly, prepackaged world in which they are to live. When you are in mortal danger, you are supposed to dial 911, so that the police can arrive on the scene some time later, identify your body, and file reports in triplicate.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “How you treat the helpless is the real test of morality. Lots of people are flunking that test big time.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Many on the political left are so entranced by the beauty of their vision that they cannot see the ugly reality they are creating in the real world.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the first things taught in introductory statistics textbooks is that correlation is not causation. It is also one of the first things forgotten.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “High tax rates that people don’t actually pay do not bring the government as much revenue as lower tax rates that they do pay.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Senator John McCain could never convince me to vote for him. Only Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama can cause me to vote for McCain.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The murder of a dozen innocent people is unquestionably a human tragedy. But that is no excuse for reacting blindly by preventing hundreds of thousands of other people from defending themselves against meeting the same fate.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don’t like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don’t expect freedom to survive very long.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “American society in recent years has been imitating behavior patterns that have produced negative – and sometimes catastrophic – consequences in many other countries around the world.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Military pay has been allowed to lag behind to the point where career enlisted men with families to feed have been forced to resort to food stamps.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Imagine a political system so radical as to promise to move more of the poorest 20% of the population into the richest 20% than remain in the poorest bracket within the decade? You don’t need to imagine it. It’s called the United States of America.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Too often what are called “educated” people are simply people who have been sheltered from reality for years in ivy-covered buildings. Those whose whole careers have been spent in ivy-covered buildings, insulated by tenure, can remain adolescents on into their golden retirement years.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I am so old that I can remember when liberals were liberal – instead of being intolerant of anything and anybody that is not politically correct.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I’m always embarrassed when people say that I’m courageous. Soldiers are courageous. Policemen are courageous. Firemen are courageous. I just have a thick hide and disregard what silly people say.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Even the Soviet Union, with its huge nuclear arsenal, was a threat that could be deterred by the prospect of retaliation. But suicide bombers cannot be deterred. They can only be annihilated – preemptively and unilaterally, if necessary.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Government restrictions are attractive to people who want to impose their pet notions without having to count the costs.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Wise men wrote the Constitution, but clever judges have been destroying it, bit by bit, turning it into an instrument of arbitrary judicial power, instead of a limitation on all government power.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “To be sensitive, as ideologically defined, requires that one not merely accept but “affirm” other people’s way of life or even “celebrate” diversity in general. Like other demands for “sensitivity,” this demand offers no reason – unless fear of being disapproved, denounced, or harassed is a reason.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of life.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the most important skills for political success is the ability to make confident assertions of absurdities or lies.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “No matter how much people on the left talk about compassion, they have no compassion for the taxpayers.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You have to have a sense of humor if you follow politics. Otherwise, the sheer fraudulence of it all will get you down.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The most politically painless way to hand out goodies, without taking responsibility for their costs, is to pass a law saying that somebody else must provide those goodies at their expense, while the politicians take credit for generosity and compassion.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Cultural differences are real, and cannot be talked away by using pejorative terms such as “stereotypes” or “racism.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You don’t send people to prison on the basis of what other people imagine, or on the basis of media sound bites like ‘shooting an unarmed child,’ when that ‘child’ was beating him bloody.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Despite a voluminous and often fervent literature on “income distribution,” the cold fact is that most income is not distributed: It is earned.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There are only two economists in Congress and hundreds of lawyers. Does that explain why the government is in such a mess?”
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: “If facts, logic, and scientific procedures are all just arbitrarily “socially constructed” notions, then all that is left is consensus – more specifically peer consensus, the kind of consensus that matters to adolescents or to many among the intelligentsia.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Whenever someone refers to me as someone “who happens to be black,” I wonder if they realize that both my parents are black. If I had turned out to be Scandinavian or Chinese, people would have wondered what was going on.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Apparently the only people who are supposed to be responsible are the taxpayers – and they are increasingly made responsible for other people’s irresponsibility.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “There have always been ignorant people, but they haven’t always had college degrees to make them unaware of their ignorance. Some people imagine that they are well informed because they have memorized a whole galaxy of trendy dogmas and fashionable attitudes.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Our fate is matched by the total freedom we have to react to our fate. It is as if we were dealt a hand of card. Once we have them, we are free to play them as we choose.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting ‘the rich’ to pay ‘their fair share’ is part of a big charade. This is not about economics, it is about politics.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Ronald Reagan had a vision of America. Barack Obama has a vision of Barack Obama.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The cavemen had the same natural resources at their disposal as we have today, and the difference between their standard of living and ours is a difference between the knowledge they could bring to bear on those resources and the knowledge used today.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The virtually unanimous support of bilingualism among Hispanic activists, “leaders” and “spokesmen” – in contrast to Hispanic parents – is understandable only in terms of the self-interest of those activists, “leaders” and “spokesmen,” who benefit from the preservation of a separate ethnic enclave, preferably alienated from the larger society.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Japan, newly emerging on the world scene in the late nineteenth century, sought its science and engineering in Scotland.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you have a right to respect, that means other people don’t have a right to their own opinions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the most ridiculous defenses of foreign aid is that it is a very small part of our national income. If the average American set fire to a five-dollar bill, it would be an even smaller percentage of his annual income. But everyone would consider him foolish for doing it.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “While rationalism at the individual level is a plea for more personal autonomy from cultural norms, at the social level it is often a claim- or arrogation- of power to stifle the autonomy of others.”
