Some great quotes from Thomas Sowell. I was just thinking I need to read more of his writings.
Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation’s resources over to politicians — who will, of course, then spend these resources in ways that increase the politicians’ chances of getting reelected.
This quote is particularly pertinent in the battle over the “living” Constitution.
The more I study the history of intellectuals, the more they seem like a wrecking crew, dismantling civilization bit by bit — replacing what works with what sounds good.
