How can anyone read history and still trust politicians?

The self-flattery of the vision of the left gives its true believers a huge ego stake in that vision which means that mere facts are unlikely to make them reconsider, regardless of what evidence piles up against the vision of the left and regardless of its disastrous consequences

No nation ever protested its way from poverty to prosperity or got there through rhetoric or bureaucracies.

What is even more astonishing is that charter schools are being opposed, not only by teachers' unions who think that schools exist to provide guaranteed jobs for their members, but also by politicians, including black politicians who loudly proclaim that "black lives matter."

The word "racism" is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything — and demanding evidence makes you a "racist."

With all the pious talk about "tolerance" in the media and in academia, there is virtually none for those who challenge the dogmas of political correctness in most of our colleges and universities.

“Why wouldn’t they teach us about Thomas Sowell in school?”

You might think that the collapse of communism throughout Eastern Europe would be considered a decisive failure for Marxism but academic Marxists in America are utterly undaunted. Their paychecks and their tenure are unaffected. Their theories continue to flourish in classrooms.

Equal opportunity policies are against racism. Affirmative action is racism under new management.

Abraham Lincoln once asked an audience how many legs a dog has if you count the tail as a leg. When they answered “five,” Lincoln told them that the answer was four. The fact that you called the tail a leg did not make it a leg.

Any politician, of any race or party, who fights against charter schools that give many black youngsters their one shot at a decent life does not deserve the vote of anybody who really believes that black lives matter.

What "multiculturalism" boils down to is that you can praise any culture in the world except Western culture—and you cannot blame any culture in the world except Western culture.

Envy was once considered to be one of the seven deadly sins before it became one of the most admired virtues under its new name, “social justice."

America symbolizes, above all, freedom and opportunity for ordinary people. That is what makes it a beacon to those in other lands who are seeking freedom and opportunity.

When you consider what an enormous windfall gain it is to be born in America, it is painful to hear some people complain bitterly that someone else got a bigger windfall gain than they did.

Thousands of free blacks owned slaves in the antebellum South. And, years after the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States, whites as well as blacks were still being bought and sold as slaves in North Africa and the Middle East.

The totalitarian mindset behind the liberal vision shows through in innumerable ways. There are no institutions in America where free speech is more severely restricted than in our politically correct colleges and universities, dominated by liberals.

No one can really understand the political left without understanding that they are about making themselves feel superior, however much they may talk piously about what they are going to do to help others.

Equal opportunity policies are against racism. Affirmative action is racism under new management.

Both the Sicilian mafia and the criminal tongs in China began as movements to defend the oppressed, so perhaps we should not be so painfully surprised that venerable American civil rights organizations have begun to degenerate into extortion rackets.

We seem to be getting closer and closer to a situation where nobody is responsible for what they did but we are all responsible for what somebody else did.

Happy 90th birthday to the legend, @ThomasSowell.

Age gives you an excuse for not being very good at things that you were not very good at when you were young.

The old aren't really smarter than the young in terms of sheer brainpower. It's just that we've already made the kinds of mistakes that the young are about to make and we've already suffered the consequences the young are going to suffer, if they disregard the record of the past.
