Opportunity Versus Outcome: Thomas Sowell

From: townhall.com,  by Thomas Sowell,  on Sep 16, 2015,  see the article HERE. A hostile review of my new book — “Wealth, Poverty and Politics” — said, “there is apparently no level of inequality of income or opportunity that Thomas Sowell would consider unacceptable.” Ordinarily, reviewers who miss the whole point of a book they are reviewing can be ignored. But this particular confusion about what opportunity means is far too widespread, far beyond a particular reviewer of a particular book. That makes it a confusion worth clearing up, because it affects so many other discussions of very serious issues. … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — July 2, 2015

Random Thoughts from Thomas Sowell

From Patriot Post: Now that Barack Obama is ruling by decree, he seems more like a king than a president. Maybe it is time we change the way we address him. “Your Majesty” may be a little too much, but perhaps “Your Royal Glibness” might be appropriate. It tells us a lot about academia that the president of Smith College quickly apologized for saying, “All lives matter,” after being criticized by those who are pushing the slogan, “Black lives matter.” If science could cross breed a jellyfish with a parrot, it could create academic administrators. Mitt Romney seems to be … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — November 30, 2014

. “People who pride themselves on their “complexity” and deride others for being “simplistic” should realize that the truth is often not very complicated. What gets complex is evading the truth.”   Thomas Sowell, (Born June 30, 1930)  “Barbarians inside the Gates and Other Controversial Essays”   ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~

A New Year, Same Old Problems

By Thomas Sowell:   Whenever we stand on the threshold of a new year, we are tempted to forget the hazards of prophecy, and try to see what may lie on the other side of this arbitrary division of time. Sometimes we are content to try to change ourselves with New Year’s resolutions to do better in some respect. Changing ourselves is a much more reasonable undertaking than trying to change other people. It may or may not succeed, but it seldom creates the disasters that trying to change others can produce. When we look beyond ourselves to the world … Continue reading
