Thomas Sowell Quote: “There are only two ways of telling the complete truth – anonymously and posthumously.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “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 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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “The whole idea of equal justice under law is completely incompatible with the idea of judges deciding cases according to “empathy”.”
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: “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: “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: “If you have a right to respect, that means other people don’t have a right to their own opinions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Sports are the reason I am out of shape. I watch them all on TV.”
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: “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: “Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”
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: “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: “As a rule of thumb. Congressional legislation that is bipartisan is usually twice as bad as legislation that is partisan.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Nothing is more complex than avoiding the obvious.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “Central planning, judicial activism, and the nanny state all presume vastly more knowledge than any elite have ever possessed.”
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: “Ronald Reagan had a vision of America. Barack Obama has a vision of Barack Obama.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “Groups that rose from poverty to prosperity seldom did so by having their own racial or ethnic leaders to follow.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Compassion is the use of public funds to buy votes.”
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: “Government’s power to bully people who have broken no law is dangerous to all of us.”
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: “Cheap medical care is one of the most expensive things there is. So long as politicians can create the illusion of something for nothing, that gets them votes, which is what it is all about, as far as they are concerned.”
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: “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: “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: “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.”
