Thomas Sowell Quote: “Even if her children or grandchildren are willing to spend their own money to keep grandma alive, when bureaucrats control the necessary technology or medication they may decide that it is not for sale.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Force is the antithesis of freedom, but force must be used, if only to defend against other force.”
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: “An inmate in a Florida prison wrote to agree with me on the availability of guns, saying that a ‘criminal can and will get a stolen gun faster than you can get your car washed.’ He also points out that many criminals prefer guns gotten illegally, since they will be harder to trace.”
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: “Much of the world today, including the United States, is still living in the social, cultural, and political aftermath of Britain’s cultural achievements, its industrial revolution, its government of checks and balances, and its conquests around the world.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The political mirage of something for nothing, from leaders who ‘care,’ has ruined many a nation.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All of us should be on guard against beliefs that flatter ourselves. At the very least, we should check such beliefs against facts.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You may scoff at the Tooth Fairy if you like. But the Tooth Fairy’s approach has gotten more politicians elected than any economist’s analysis.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All justice is inherently social. Can someone on a desert island be either just or unjust?”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Child poverty in the United States declined after the work requirement was put in there. People realized that they had to work and people went out and worked and they got off welfare.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you are serious about education, then you need to start a lot earlier than fifteen years old to give each child a decent shot at life in the real world, as distinguished from make-believe equality while in school. Ability grouping or “tracking” – so hated by the ideological egalitarians – is one of the best ways of doing that.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Anyone who does not understand the utter cynicism of politics does not understand politics.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “All too often, we do smart things only after exhausting every conceivable dumb thing we could have done.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You can always create a fraction by putting one variable upstairs and another variable downstairs, but that soes not establish any causal relationship between them, nor does the resulting quotient have any necessary relationship to anything in the real world.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “In the wake of the housing debacle in California, more people are buying less expensive homes, making bigger down payments, and staying away from ‘creative’ and risky financing. It is amazing how fast people learn when they are not insulated from the consequences of their decisions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Some of the people on death row today might not be there if the courts had not been so lenient on them when they were first offenders.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The desire to order other people around and make them conform to one own’s vision takes many forms.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Civilization is an enormous device for economizing knowledge,.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Too many policies, programs and institutions are judged by what they are supposed to do, rather than by what they actually do and the consequences of their actions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People who know nothing about advertising, nothing about pharmaceuticals, and nothing about economics have been loudly proclaiming that the drug companies spend too much on advertising – and demanding that the government pass laws based on their ignorance.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Although much of the media have their antennae out to pick up anything that might be construed as racism against blacks, they resolutely ignore even the most blatant racism by blacks against others.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Perhaps people who are gushing over the Obama Cult today might do well to stop and think about what it would mean for their granddaughters to live under Sharia law.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Government cannot solve all our problems, even in normal times, much less during a catastrophe of nature that reminds man how little he is, despite all his big talk.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Ego trips by coteries of self-exalting people are treated in the media as idealism, rather than the petty tyranny it is.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “However widespread the desire to be free, that is wholly different from a desire to live in a society where others are free.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The biggest and most deadly ‘tax’ rate on the poor comes from a loss of various welfare state benefits – food stamps, housing subsidies and the like – if their income goes up.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Some people say that taxes are the price we pay for civilization. But the runaway taxes of our time are the price we pay for being gullible.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you have ever seen a four-year-old trying to lord it over a two-year-old, then you know what the basic problem of human nature is – and why government keeps growing larger and ever more intrusive.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you don’t believe in the innate unreasonableness of human beings, just try raising children.”
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: “Money goes out first to pay expenses and then comes back as profits later – if at all. The high rate of failure of new businesses makes painfully clear that there is nothing inevitable about the money coming back.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Any politician who starts shouting election-year demagoguery about the rich and the poor should be asked, “What about the other 90 percent of the people?””
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People in the political world have every incentive to say things that lead voters away from a clear economic understanding of issues. What has happened more and more is that organized groups have more and more reasons to say things that don’t make any economic sense.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Economics is concerned with what emerges, not what anyone intended.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Each day, as I take various pills, I realize that without those pills I might not be alive – and, if I were, life would not be worth living. Yet those who produce these medications are under constant attack from people who produce nothing.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The more adaptability exists for a given kind of decision, the less risky it is to make plans for the future, and therefore the more likely it is that more people will make more plans in such areas.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “We need laws written by people who have confronted life in the real world, not in the sheltered world of trust fund recipients of the insulated cocoon of academia.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The fact that the market is not doing what we wish it would do is no reason to automatically assume that the government would do better.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Riskier mortgage lending practices, imposed by government, were what set the stage for many mortgage payments to stop and thus for the financial disasters that followed. Political rhetoric, echoed in the media, seeks to obscure that painfully plain fact.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Creating whole departments of ethnic, gender, and other ‘studies’ was part of the price of academic peace. All too often, these ‘studies’ are about propaganda rather than serious education.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The way to get people’s votes is to say that all their problems are caused by other people, and that you will stop those other people from giving them trouble. But if you really want to help, then you can tell them the truth and risk losing their votes.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The only people I truly envy are those who can play a musical instrument and those who can eat anything they want without gaining weight.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “You need only visit campuses where whole departments feature soft courses preaching a sense of victimhood and resentment, and see the consequences in racial and ethnic polarization on campus.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What is called “planning” in political rhetoric is the government’s suppression of other people’s plans by superimposing on them a collective plan, created by third parties, armed with the power of government and exempted from paying the costs that these collective plans impose on others.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration.”
