Besides my mother and father, I can think of no other human that has inspired me to think and analyze more than Thomas Sowell. Thank you, Mr. Sowell.
This man is an intellectual powerhouse. I am currently reading his book, "Intellectuals and Society" and am really enjoying it.
I hope Dr. Sowell will keep giving Hoover interviews in all eternity! This man is a national treasure.
Sowell is 87 and still sharp as a tack. It's remarkable he publishes so many books and always has something valuable to say.
Thomas Sowell is the greatest living American.
As an Asian American, I find myself teary and exclaiming to myself, "Thomas Sowell, please don't die ! "
With no hyperbole, I can say, this has been one of the hardest weeks in my life.

But when my buddy sent me a link for a new video with Thomas Sowell, it all melted away. A National Treasure, thank you Sir (and I read your book the day it was released and it's one of my favorites in your work).
Through the insanity spreading across America, Thomas Sowell always seems to have an answer
Heaven is just Thomas Sowell reading his books to everyone sitting on the floor for eternity
Basic Economics should be taught at every American school.
He says exactly what he has to say then shuts up. that is truly a great but rare quality.
I'd like to see a 2-3 hour discussion between Thomas Sowell and Jordan Peterson

Me 40 minutes ago : It's late...I'm just going to watch part of this now and catch the rest tomorrow.

40 minutes later : [can't put down phone] I think I'll find another good Sowell interview to watch!

Read any of Dr Sowell’s books (yes, any of them). He writes in a lovely clear style, is well read, does very good background research on his topics, and is very convincing in his arguments.
Strongly recommended. Thank you for posting this great interview!
This man is 88 years old, and he’s still sharper than every liberal out there

This man deserves many statues, institutions named after him and chapters taught in school about him and others.
Every single American should read this now during the BLM riots.
The fall of man is his ego. Thomas Sowell has transcended this and only been interested in the truth, making him one of the most valuable people in the world.

Educated and civil conversations are a true rarity these days. At least public conversations anyway.
Crazy. My whole way of thinking was changed after hearing this man speak. Thanks 🙏🏾

It would be harder to think of a greater role model for young African-American kids than Thomas Sowell. A kid pretty much orphaned who came up through dire poverty to become a leading economist second to none. Yet no one knows who he is. Kanye, if you're reading this, you know what to do.

I stopped being a liberal when I realized they were wrong about everything 😂😂😂 when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING. I thank god for people like Friedman and Sowell.
I hope that Thomas Sowell knows what a precious gift he has left us by doing these sit downs. Thank you so much.

Thomas Sowell, you are my hero. We need you for all of eternity. Thanks for continuing to work so hard.
Sincerely - a Canadian gal
I love you, Dr. Sowell. Please never stop doing what you're doing.
Although I know this won’t happen, it would be amazing if Netflix had a series of debates between Mr. Sowell and the current leading leftists.

I love the fact that he laughs about being a Marxist in his youth! The old adage is really a truism - If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35 You Have No Brain. - youth has the luxury of believing in idealism(s), yet, with age you get the wisdom of realism, and how life really works. Dr. Sowell is so wise and beyond the average, that he’s an anomaly. The Marxist youth of this age are so extreme and confident in their self-righteous ignorance that they will run this country over a cliff! Only in hindsight in 10 to 20 years will they see the folly of their idealism.
Thomas Sowell should be a mandatory read in all high schools, he is a treasure
Um I dont ever want Thomas Sowell to die
