I could listen to Thomas Sowell all day! - definitely in the top 5 living people I would love to meet and thank for their scholarship
I'm trying my hardest to teach this to my high school economic students. They were brought up unconstrained.
Thomas Sowell and Roger Scruton have brought me kicking and screaming over the last couple of years from the left to sanity. And boy, am I glad they did!
This was the video that made me a conservative. After I watched this I bought his book. I started to read philosophy very differently after this book. Amazing work!
THANK YOU to Peter Robinson for these interviews.
Such a great interviewer!
Brilliant, brilliant man...I'm listening to this in Aug. 2020..I'm gobsmacked!!! Excellent observation that Obama has an elitist attitude that he knows best. Thomas Sowell, thank you ...
Still one of my favorite Thomas Sowell interviews. I've watched it countless times. A big thanks to Peter Robinson for taking the time to give it to us.
If Sowell had been President instead of Obama, America would be much better off.
Hopefully this man will go down in history. I can't believe I have only found out about this man in the last couple of years.
Dr. Sowell is good for the Soul.
“My job is not to cut [McCain] any slack. My job is to inform the people who read what I have to say.” Love that.
Dr. Sowell's stuff is brilliant. I love the videos. Now I just have to stop being so lazy and actually get into his books. First thing to do: throw my TV out the friggin' window.
Anyone else wish they had Thomas Sowell as their high school teacher?
P o o m
Thomas is so quick. He's just an amazing guy that should be promoted for black history month
party so more black youth can benefit from the fact that he's one of the greatest minds of the century
Every line that comes out of sowell’s mouth is quotable. Lol

The more Sowell I read the more I am impressed by his writing. I never imagined I could be riveted reading about economics but he does it for me!

My gosh, Mr Sowell is absolutely brilliant!
Sowell gets it. One of the few people who is truly awake.
So much love for this man! “If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.” - Thomas Sowell.
"Liberals are often wrong, but never in doubt" ... truer words have not been spoken!

In my view, the Supreme Court of the United States should always be of a conservative makeup that embraces the constrained vision of society if for no other reason than it provides a limiting principle against those who would attempt to remake our society and nation based upon the unconstrained vision.
I never even knew that everything Dr. Thomas Sowell said back then would unfold so correctly that he could have been called a prophet.
We see that every point he mentioned is literally everything we are seeing now and in a mere 13 years from this talk.
This makes me wonder how much more he has said will be revealed.... and whether or not this country will be permanently damaged, or even survive.
Intellect abilities and sheer demeanor are one thing but the reason why Im truly impressed by this man is how he is able to Embrace his intellect that far outweigh any of those of the elite while simultaneously allowing it to be ruled by sheer humbleness! Its people like you and my own will to be better that have helped me realize the flaws that I have and actually the true dangers and responsibilities of having any intelligence. Thank you Doctor Sowell for reminding me of the importance of always humbling myself especially if I ever get the thought that I know better. through your teachings, hopefully i can leave this earth better than i found it
"I prefer disaster to catastrophe" hahahaha!
23:00 I prefer disaster to catastrophe... When asked about why he would vote for McCain vs Obama. Brilliant!
