My god could you imagine having Thomas Sowell lecture at your school and then being able to talk with him on campus. Sounds like heaven.
First time I have listened to Thomas Sowell. I am ashamed to admit that I have never heard of him.
I will now catch up with all his interviews and listen to his views. Never too late to learn.
A very impressive man,
Thomas Sowell is THE greatest empirical economic and cultural analytical mind and author alive today, perhaps ever.
I really dislike the obscurity of which Dr. Sowell has been subject to. I'm no scholar, but I'm willing to bet that this man is one of the greatest minds come about in American history.
"I don’t want people making decisions who dont pay the price of making these decisions"
It was being asked even back in 1990, “why have we not seen more of you?” 30 years later, it’s still being asked! I watched every single interview of Thomas Sowell’s, sometimes more than once. Amazing!
A man of ferocious wisdom and charisma.
It's such a pleasure to listen to this guy.
Absolutely mind boggling that this is from 1990. Still, and extremely, topical today! :-|
This interview is mind-blowing. SJWs have been around for much longer than I had thought. This could have been recorded yesterday and it would be just as relevant.

This man has changed my life. Civil Rights the the greatest lie ever told to black people in this country.

When I listen to interviews or talks of anyone, beit Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin, Stevan Hawkins, or anyone like them, I seem to understand them and feel I could emulate them. When it come to Thomas Sowell; he Is the only one that makes me feel intellectually inadequate. I understand what he's saying, but when it comes to knowing how he got his intelligence and information, I'm at a loss. He is truly ahead of his time, it's uncanny how relevant this interview is today; as if he took a time machine twenty years into the future and wrote a few books. Truly awe-inspiring!
This is gold. Recently came across Thomas Sowell. Blown away.
I love how practical and pragmatic he is. So objective and intellectually honest. And he doesn’t seem to care one bit about fame or fortune. Truly one of the greatest minds of our time.

As I listen to Dr.Sowell, it occurred to me that the more things change the more they remain the same.🕵🏻‍♀️🕊❤️🇺🇸
It is absolutely fascinating that Sowell can say all of this 31 years ago and it maps perfectly to 2021.

He is absolutely iconic. Media, academia take no benefit to proliferate his voice. Popular opinions have nothing to get sensational about regarding Sowell because real life is ugly and unpopular, hyper complex and preverbal. Sowell taps this complexity with stainless clarity. My life is on pause with his content. #loveit !!!
Tom Sowell is one of the greatest minds of our century!!!!! Too bad the predominant Liberal press tries to ignore him because he’s a Conservative.

I would do anything to meet Thomas Sowell or Jordan Peterson... They've changed my life... Opened my eyes to truth and transcendence...
Below is just a list of things want to remember:
11:00 pro life vs pro choice meeting
14:00 Marxian economics
22:42 “Admit people on the basis of qualifications
24:58 why write? To better race?
26:00 having your word distorted
28:15 racial divisions, what is stoking flame?
32:21 when students can’t keep up you need teachers that can’t keep up
32:00 hire “ideologically” black people
37:30 biased against politics
38:00 Congress selling out public interest
40:00 Churchill
41:07 we owe everything to the surrounding society + maximum society
42:15 Jim Crow
44:00 we have history of what happens when you have people trying to coexist with radically different beliefs
44:39 stoking racial division
46:39 -||- + mindset on both sides
48:27 ideologues not wanting to listen
49:24 tenured does not lead to new ideas
51:07 start so re-examine racial dogma that has been repeated
53:00 wanting to write a book on intellectuals
This is the exact interview that changed my entire world view (like Dr Sowell, I was a Marxist in my youth). I can still remember the feeling I had watching this interview oh so many years ago!

If only society in general treasured him as much as he had deserved. He’s now in his early 90s and is as sharp as ever.

God bless Dr Sowell. 🙏❤️
A brillant man who faces our problems head on. He does not sugar-coat his conclusions.
I could listen to his wisdom and knowledge all day. It's by design he has not gained popularity
This man is prophetic. Only found him recently, I have fallen in love.
18:15 to 19:10 he explained 30+ years ago the problems we have today with all these movements. What an incredible mind.
We got the wrong black to be the first black president. Imagine this guy been the president for 8 years with this kind of knowledge and mind.
