We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Thanks for this video. It's one I hadn't seen yet with Sowell. He's a favorite of mine and I've got a number of his books and read most of them. My all time favorite is Vision of the Anointed. He lays out a perfect explanation of the state of mind of so many of the intellectuals of the left.
Sowell is one of my favorites too. My reading list is a biography of all the presidents (Clinton and Obama excepted - what would be the point?), The Bible, and every one of Thomas Sowell's. I have read Vision of the Anointed and agree with your assessment. It is an important way of looking at those who mean to be our rulers.
