Brilliant expose on the reality of liberalism and its effects on society by Dr. Thomas Sowell. I’ve included parts I, II, and III.
Part I: (On the economy)
The High Cost of Liberalism - Thomas Sowell - Page full
Part II: (On gun control)
Part III: (On income inequality & government waste)
[quote=Thomas Sowell]“Poverty” is in the eye of the statisticians – more specifically, the government statisticians who define what constitutes “poverty,” and who are unlikely to define it in ways that might jeopardize the massive welfare state that they are part of.
In terms of income statistics that produce liberal outcries about "disparities" and "inequities," millions of people who don't have to earn incomes typically don't. The more people who are in a non-income-earning mode, the greater the disparities with the incomes of those of us who have to work for a living, and who have to earn more to offset high tax rates. Yet liberals often act as if this is an injustice to those who don't work, rather than an injustice to those who do work, and whose taxes support those who don't.[/quote]
