This video was just released 10 minutes ago. Presented without comment: … please retweet my tweet: https://twitter.com/realChrisBrunet/status/1702700108893077815 … and pre-order Sowell’s new book. Written at the age of 93! https://www.amazon.com/Social-Justice-Fallacies-Thomas-Sowell/dp/1541603923
I see Sowell. I watch. I share.
Let's keep each other accountable to be as sharp and influential as he is at 90. Look forward to dropping your podcast debut on Thursday!
It's insane how eloquent he is at 93.
I recommend everyone read Dr. Sowell's first book, Knowledge and Decisions. It blew me away in the early 1980's, when I was in college. He's enlightened me a thousand times over. Each of his books will change your mind about what you think you know.
The man is a National treasure
This fucking dummie has rimmed the white man's asshole since the ivy league; his entire Uncle Tom dogma suggests the system is unbiased but people are biased and irrational. He is just trying to discredit civil rights and movements for postive change.
Such a perfect little, white, corporate fascist he is.
I stumbled upon Sowell during a cross country drive when I was looking for a good youtube video explaining elementary economics. He was so clear. I did not know then that my economist friend Larry had been Sowell's TA in econ grad school at UCLA. Since then, I listened to many of Sowell's videos, and learned that he also happened to be black.
One thing that especially impressed me was Sowell's description of how he had begun as a sympathizer to socialism, how plausible it seemed. He described how he sought out data, expecting his inclinations to be confirmed. When the data strongly contradicted his expectations, he changed his views. Very Feynman-ian.
Sowell's genius is demonstrated by his clarity. It is those who do not understand well, who obfuscate with vocabulary and jargon.
Thanks for sharing this delightful video. I have pre-ordered his book.
