Thomas Sowell

Thank you, Professor Sowell

Thank you, Professor Sowell

Special to WorldTribune.com By Michelle Malkin I first read Thomas Sowell in college — no thanks to my college. At the majority of America’s institutions of “higher learning,” reading Thomas Sowell was a subversive act in the early 1990s when I was a student. It remains so today. Why? Because the prolific libertarian economist’s vast […]

‘Senseless acts’ of journalistic violence: Don’t trust NY Times logic with your life

‘Senseless acts’ of journalistic violence: Don’t trust NY Times logic with your life

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Sometimes someone inadvertently performs a public service by bringing an unbelievably stupid and dangerous idea to the surface, where it can be exposed for what it is. The New York Times can be credited — if that is the word — with performing this public service in a recent […]

How about some post-election introspection from the DNC, the RNC? . . . Sigh

How about some post-election introspection from the DNC, the RNC? . . . Sigh

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell The good news is that we dodged a bullet in this election. The bad news is that we don’t know how many other bullets are coming, or from what direction. A Hillary Clinton victory would have meant a third consecutive administration dedicated to dismantling the institutions that have kept […]

Trump talk was bad, but Hillary-Obama actions gave rise to ISIL, executions and sex slaves

Trump talk was bad, but Hillary-Obama actions gave rise to ISIL, executions and sex slaves

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Donald Trump’s gutter talk about women shows yet again that he is bad news. The problem is that Hillary Clinton is far worse. Trump’s talk is indefensible. But Hillary Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State, carrying out the Obama administration’s foreign policies, have cost many lives in many places, […]

No ‘barbed wire’ Iron Curtain in USA today, but the academic gulags are very real indeed

No ‘barbed wire’ Iron Curtain in USA today, but the academic gulags are very real indeed

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Back in the days of the Cold War between the Communist bloc of nations and the Western democracies, the Communists maintained pervasive restrictions around Eastern Europe that were aptly called an “iron curtain,” isolating the people in its bloc from the ideas of the West and physically obstructing their […]

Education is the GOP’s Trump card with minority American voters

Education is the GOP’s Trump card with minority American voters

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Who would have thought that Donald Trump, of all people, would be addressing the fact that the black community suffers the most from a breakdown of law and order? But sanity on racial issues is sufficiently rare that it must be welcomed, from whatever source it comes. When establishment […]

What if Black Success mattered to those who decide what is newsworthy?

What if Black Success mattered to those who decide what is newsworthy?

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell We keep hearing that “black lives matter,” but they seem to matter only when that helps politicians to get votes, or when that slogan helps demagogues demonize the police. The other 99 percent of black lives destroyed by people who are not police do not seem to attract nearly […]

The politics of racial disharmony: Black votes matter more than black lives

The politics of racial disharmony: Black votes matter more than black lives

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined. This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans. However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a […]

Not so ‘Great Society’: Relieving Americans of individual responsibility has polarized the nation

Not so ‘Great Society’: Relieving Americans of individual responsibility has polarized the nation

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Among the many disturbing signs of our times are conservatives and libertarians of high intelligence and high principles who are advocating government programs that relieve people of the necessity of working to provide their own livelihoods. Generations ago, both religious people and socialists were agreed on the proposition that […]

Thinking things through: Socialism, Venezuelans and Bernie’s legions

Thinking things through: Socialism, Venezuelans and Bernie’s legions

Special to WorldTribune.com By Thomas Sowell Socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster. While throngs of young people […]
