An authoritative insight into the liberal mind,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Vision of the Anointed: Self Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy (Paperback)
I had long been a fan of economist and columnist Thomas Sowell when I bought this book. I greatly appreciate, especially coming from a black man, his precise analysis of why liberal politics and practices have been an utter failure in the area of liberating minorities from, what is portrayed by popular thought, the evils of capitalism. The very ones who have profited most from capitalist economics denounce it as the best means for minorities to rise from depression because they have "annointed" themselves as the intellectual and morally superior ones from whom all proper goverenment should flow. That's because you, who only care about your own survival, can't be relied upon to make the correct political decisions for everyone else. Only they have the "vision" to do so.
